    S.1 AKA the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act The Senate will vote to pass the Senate bill S. 1 AKA the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act ― which contains four measures that received bipartisan support in the last Congress. It includes the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, which would take the following steps to bring the war in Syria to an end: * Impose new sanctions on persons or entities who provide the Assad regime with financing, aircraft or parts (and related financing), telecommunications services, or support the Syrian energy industry. * Encourage negotiations to end the crisis by suspending sanctions if parties to the conflict are engaged in meaningful negotations and violence against civilians has stopped. * Help investigations that will eventually lead to the conviction of war criminals by authorizing the State Dept. to support entities that are collecting and preserving evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria. The bill also contains bipartisan measures aimed at strengthening security alliances with Israel & Jordan and countering the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement. With the bipartisan nature of the bill, Senate Democrats should not as to be expected expected, to block the bill in the procedural vote. This bipartisan bill would enact new sanctions on the Assad regime for its crimes against the Syrian people, strengthen the security alliances between the U.S. two of its closest allies in the Middle East in Israel and Jordan, while also giving state and local governments tools to counter the anti-Israel BDS movement.
