Democrats Ignore AIPAC

by admin 2 Comments

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.”

    It is very brave of these Democrats to boycott the AIPAC conference as this lobby group has immense influence in the US, and many are simply too scared to oppose them. For further insight, there is a great documentary series called "The Lobby: USA" in which AIPAC and other organisations are infiltrated to reveal their murky practices. This 4-part series was first banned but then leaked and is still all available on youtube at the time of this posting. Part 1: The Lobby: USA - Part 1
