Protestant Church leaders write to Congress, asking for a reevaluation of U.S. military aid to Israel.
The Anti-Defamation League withdrew from participating in a national Jewish-Christian interfaith dialogue after church leaders asked Congress to reevaluate U.S. military aid to Israel.
The ADL in a statement called the request "a serious breach of trust by mainline Protestant Church leaders" participating in the annual interfaith meeting, which will be held on Oct. 22.
WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved President Obama's request for an additional $205 million in assistance to Israel for a short-range missile defense system.
The vote approving funding for "Iron Dome" passed Thursday 410-4. The money is above the $3 billion in annual defense assistance Israel already receives from the United States.
