Hundreds of Rabbis Condemn Bernie Sanders' AIPAC Comment
Nearly 350 rabbis signed a letter last week condemning Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ decision to skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual conference. Sanders said days ago that he would not attend the conference, accusing the organization of bigotry. The rabbis condemned Sanders for his attacks on the organization, which has traditionally enjoyed bipartisan support among elected officials. “As strong supporters of the USA-Israel relationship and AIPAC’s role in advancing it, we reject Senator Bernie Sanders’ outrageous comment accusing AIPAC of fostering bigotry,” the rabbis wrote. “AIPAC is one of the last remaining vehicles in American politics that proactively seeks to bring Americans from across the political spectrum together to achieve a common goal,” they continued. “The AIPAC Policy conference may be the largest political gathering of Democrats and Republicans in the entire country.” Sanders is widely considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination and would become the first Jewish president in USA history if he wins. However, Sanders has come under fire from Jewish organizations over anti-Israel sentiments expressed by his campaign, according to media sources Sanders has repeatedly trotted out campaign surrogates who support a boycott of the Jewish state, including Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar. (VFI News)
