Violent settlers on the move

Emboldened by Trump and Netanyahu, violent settlers are once again trying to seize Mount Al-Urma, one of the highest mountains in the occupied West Bank and a strategic position for Israelis.

But the people of nearby town Beita aren’t going anywhere. They’re holding 24-hour vigils to protect the mountain amidst threatening social media calls for its takeover.

Democrats Ignore AIPAC

Four major Democratic candidates said they will skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference while Mike Bloomberg is set to speak at the annual event taking place on Sunday.

Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg will all skip the conference for various reasons.

Sanders has vowed to skip AIPAC’s conference, aligning with liberal activists who pushed every Democratic White House candidate to rule out an appearance. The decision by the Vermont senator is drawing sharp criticism from pro-Israel members of Congress and the Anti-Defamation League, making Bloomberg’s decision to attend a point of sharp contrast with his opponent.

Sanders said in a tweet the group gives airtime to “leaders who express bigotry.”
