Stop settlement subsidies

To IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and President Obama:

The IRS should deny tax breaks to individuals and organizations actively supporting the growth and militarization of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Even though these tax-free donations contradict US policy and violate the IRS’s own rules, the IRS has never responded to prior complaints. We call on you to announce an audit of these organizations and an end to their settlement subsidies.

Over $200 million has been funneled, tax free, from US donors to radical Israeli settler groups. Millions that should go to health care and education here at home instead pay for sniper rifle scopes and surveillance cameras to help extremist settlers push Palestinians off their land.

It’s shocking, and it’s illegal. Everyone knows these tax breaks violate IRS rules -- but there hasn’t been an outcry to force the IRS to audit these pseudo-charities and cancel their tax benefits. Now is the moment to change this.

Israel’s pro-settlement Prime Minister will address Congress in Washington next week, and the media is looking for a controversy. We can give them one, with a major media outcry -- and legal action to push the IRS to stop settlement subsidies. Sign now.
