AIPAC Hits Back At Sanders Over ‘Odious’ Criticism: ‘Truly Shameful’

8

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) fired back at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday night after he said he would not attend the organization’s annual conference and accused it of providing a platform to leaders who “express bigotry and oppose Palestinian rights.”

In a statement AIPAC posted to Twitter, the pro-Israel group said Sanders “has never attended our conference and that is evident from his outrageous comment.”

“In fact, many of his own Senate and House Democratic colleagues and leaders speak from our platform to the over 18,000 Americans from widely diverse backgrounds – Democrats, Republicans, Jews, Christians, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, progressives, Veterans, students, members of the LGBTQ+ community – who participate in the conference to proclaim their support for the U.S.-Israel relationship,” the group said in the statement.

“By engaging in such an odious attack on this mainstream, bipartisan American political event, Senator Sanders is insulting his very own colleagues and the millions of Americans who stand with Israel,” the organization continued. “Truly shameful.”

  1. The Left, first in Europe and now in the U.S, doesn’t much care for Israel. The Left’s takeover of the Democratic party is well underway. A clear consequence of this is the Democrats’ increasing antipathy toward Israel and its government.

  2. I’m glad Sanders, who constantly slanders Israel, is showing his true colors, pre-election, in case anybody had any doubt about his stance on Israel.
    It’s because of people like him, that Jews are leaving the Democratic Party, and joining the Jexodus Movement.

  3. It’s not shameful. He’s true to his beliefs and uses the “Jew card” when it serves him best. He’s a rabid anti Semite will millions of followers.

  4. who needs that garbage there anyhow.would you pick up some dog poop and bring it to aipac ??????the jew is looking for the muslim votes.theres alway another heart attack available from where the first one came from

  5. AIPAC feels hurt that Left-wing Looney Socialist Sanders wouldn’t even attend an AIPAC event even though AIPAC has always been an anti-Jewish (remember Tom Dine) pro left Israel supporting organization.

  6. Shemos reshoim yirkav, he should meet his Maker quickly and through no man’s hand before he ends up like Trotski, another renegade
