Americans for Peace Now (APN) calls on the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to condemn
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his alliance with a racist ultra-nationalist Israeli party, and to disinvite
him from its annual policy conference.
In response to the firestorm that has erupted over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s brokering a deal designed to bring
Kahanists into the Knesset, AIPAC on Friday issued a tepid statement. It called the Otzma Yehudit (“Jewish Power”)
party “racist and reprehensible.” It failed, however, to say a word about the Prime Minister, who has aligned
himself with this Kahanist party and is working to bring it into government.
On Saturday, the very next day, AIPAC announced it was “honored” that Benjamin Netanyahu will speak at its policy
conference next month, just days before Israel’s general elections.
