The Jewish Community Relations Council of Atlanta endorses and supports the Jewish Federations of North America’s statement issued yesterday on the Israeli government’s decision to deny travel to certain Members of Congress:

The Jewish Federations of North America believes that every member of Congress, without exception, should be allowed to visit Israel, irrespective of whether we agree with their point of view. The relationship between Israel and the U.S. Congress is longstanding and unique, and has served as a bulwark of America’s bi-partisan support for Israel for decades.
