Tell your reps: Stop taking campaign contributions from Elbit!

Elbit Systems is the Israeli military’s top weapons manufacturer, responsible for war crimes and oppression in Palestine and surveillance and repression on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Elbit produces UAV military drones, surveillance systems, and provides parts and maintenance for Israel’s Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jet which used to bomb civilians in Gaza. Elbit contracts with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for towers, radars and drones on our border, and supplies drones, other weapons and surveillance technology used to kill and oppress Palestinians.

Over 200 Palestinians have been killed and 20,000 injured since March 30, 2018 by weapons developed by Elbit and used by Israel to repress the Great March of Return weekly protests.

Elbit has given $69,500 in campaign contributions to 30 U.S. members of Congress — these contributions play a tremendous role in maintaining Congressional inaction that allows Israel to perpetuate its crimes against the Palestinian people.

We need you to send a message to all the Representatives and Senators taking Elbit’s blood money. Join us to tell Congress “Stop taking money from Elbit and other companies that profit from repression and death!”

    All politicians that continue to support the murderous, racist and apartheid regime of Zionist Israel should be condemned. All governments that value human rights, freedom, peace and justice should stop supporting the israeli regime and stop dealing with its corporations – especially the arms manufacturers like Elbit.

    All nations must demand that Israel:
    • close all settlements on Palestinian land and return to the UN accepted borders of 1948
    • officially recognise the state of Palestine (it is after all, the state on which Israel stands)
    • dismantle its apartheid wall
    • cease all hostilities against the Palestinian people
    • pay compensation to all victims of Israeli terrorism and reparations for all the Palestinian infrastructure it has destroyed


    The UN should have a peace keeping force in the ME to ensure that the Palestinians are protected from the bellicose, murderous and racist state of Israel.
