AFSI is an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel.
Our Vision: AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, which asserted Israel’s right—historic, religious and legal-- to the territories won in the 1967 war, when Israel, openly threatened with imminent extinction by her Arab neighbors, turned the tables in six unforgettable days. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel, is essential to U.S. security interests in the region and that “land for peace” is a delusional policy.
At this time AFSI is a major educational support group for the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria, the Golan, Jerusalem, Hebron , the Negev, the Jordan Valley, the Galilee and the threatened cities of Israel. We are also deeply committed to the refugees from the Gush Katif expulsion. AFSI supports the right of Israelis, free from outside interference, to live, thrive and expand their communities in all of the Land of Israel. We strongly support the application of sovereignty to Judea and Samaria.

Israel (AFSI), a major political support group for the Jewish communities of
