AIPAC Fly To Israel, Schedule Meeting With Netanyahu, To Discuss Kosel Rift

5

Three top leaders of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee arrived in Israel on Wednesday to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and discuss the impact on the pro-Israel lobby of Sunday’s government decisions on the Kosel and conversion.

The delegation is expected to meet with Netanyahu later today, and is scheduled to be in the country for only a day.

The AIPAC decision to send a delegation came amid a wave of calls it received in Washington both from constituents and from the offices of congressmen (the vast majority of whom were Democrats) expressing concern about the decision to freeze the plan to establish an expanded egalitarian prayer space at the Western Wall and to move forward the bill that would give the ultra-Orthodox a monopoly over conversion in Israel.

  1. AIPAC STAY IN AMERICA!

    The Kedusha of the Kotel Ha Ma’aravie and of Yerushalayim Ir HaKodesh is not subject to negotiations or debates.

    And this is the overwhelming consensus of every element of Torah Jewry worldwide: Haredi, Hasidic, Modern Orthodox, National Religious, CHARDAL, etc. etc.

    The status of the Kotel will not be decided by votes in the Knesset or by Jews in the Diaspora.

  2. World inertia. Reform jew hears he has bad wit, calls congressman or Aipac and wants his helping schnooker.

    This is just he-haw time. The simplicity is to know G-d is real.

  3. Hate to break it to you, but this move was decided by votes in the Knesset and because they are needed to keep a coalition government.
