RJC: GOP Leaders Speak Out about Anti-Regime Protests in Iran

Washington D.C. (January 3, 2018) -- Iran has seen a week of anti-government protests, in which more than 20 people have been killed and 450 arrested. The unrest began with small protests over economic issues in one city, but quickly expanded into mass protests across the country calling for political change.
 
When Iranians took to the streets in 2009, the Obama administration did not respond. President Trump and his administration, along with leading Republican legislators, are speaking out in support of the protesters this time. The RJC thanks President Trump for his leadership in supporting the Iranian people.

Statement on the House Foreign Affairs Committee Passing the Taylor Force Act

Washington, D.C. (November 15, 2017) — The RJC released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:

Today, the House Committee on Foreign Affairs took a big step to enhance the security of Americans and Israelis. Sponsored by Representatives Doug Lamborn and Lee Zeldin, the Taylor Force Act takes the steps necessary to cut off American taxpayer money from going to the Palestinian Authority while the PA continues to encourage and incentivize the murder and injury of Israelis and Americans. The passage of the Taylor Force Act by the House Foreign Affairs Committee now paves the way for passage of the bill by the full House of Representatives. This bill, spearheaded by Republicans in the House and Senate, is in line with our party's rock solid commitment to our great ally, Israel.

The RJC is very proud to have been the first and strongest supporter of the Taylor Force Act, and we promise to continue our dogged work to pass the bill.
