In an astonishing display of the left’s radicalism and growing anti-Israel sentiment, MoveOn – a prominent liberal organization – has issued a call for all 2020 Democratic presidential contenders to boycott the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual policy conference. Even more astonishing, the Democratic candidates are observing the boycott.
“Not appearing at AIPAC – at least at official events – are any 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, with some openly announcing they are skipping the event amid pressure from left-wing activists,” The Washington Post reported Thursday.
President Trump criticized the decision by the Democrats who want to run against him in 2020 when he spoke to reporters Friday morning as he departed the White House.
“The Democrats have proven to be anti-Israel, and it’s a disgrace,” the president said. “Frankly, I think they are anti-Jewish.”
“You cannot be a progressive and support AIPAC,” MoveOn campaign director Iram Ali argued when he demanded that all 2020 Democratic presidential contenders fall in line and shun AIPAC, the nation’s most prominent voice for the U.S.-Israel alliance.
