White House Sending Susan Rice And Samantha Power To Address AIPAC Conference



The White House will be sending National Security Advisor Susan Rice and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power to address the March 1-3 American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.

According to White House officials, Rice and Power will highlight the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship and America’s commitment to Israel’s security, the Associated Press reported. But the officials will also make President Barack Obama’s case for the ongoing nuclear negotiations between Iran and world powers, talks that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has frequently criticized.

Sending Rice and Power continues the downward trend in the stature of Obama administration representatives at the AIPAC conference in recent years. President Barack Obama spoke at the conference in 2011 and 2012, but has not appeared there ever since. Vice President Joe Biden addressed the AIPAC gathering in 2013, and last year, the highest-ranking White House representatives were Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew.

Earlier this week, in an interview with Charlie Rose of PBS, Rice called Netanyahu’s planned speech to a joint session of Congress on March 3 “destructive of the fabric of the relationship” between the U.S. and Israel. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio), who invited Netanyahu to speak to Congress, said he “couldn’t disagree more” with Rice’s comments.

“The American people and both parties in Congress have always stood with Israel and nothing, and no one, could get in the way,” Boehner said. “What is destructive in my view is making a bad deal that paves the way for a nuclear Iran. That’s destructive.”

  1. There is hatred on display here. Just like the republicans fall into Obama’s trap and launch an unpopular shutdown, the Dems are following the egoist and displaying,openly, their Israel/Jew hatred.

  2. Both have a confirmed anti-Israel record. Obama never hid his anti-Israel and anti-Jewish animus. Will American Jews wake up and smell the coffee?

    Rabosai, l’maan haEmmes contact your senators and congressmen immediately and put them on notice that they cannot count on your vote in the next elections for Congress if they won’t be present and welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu at his speech scheduled for the next week in the dignified fashion appropriate for his position as head of state and one of the very, very few friends of the US. We do this not in order to support this or that candidate in the Israeli elections, but to counteract Obama’s anti-Israel and pro-Muslim policies.

  3. The headline should read like this: “White House Sending Susan Rice And Samantha Power To LIE THROUGH THEIR TEETH at AIPAC Conference”
