The Israeli people have the right to live in peace and
security. So do the Palestinian people. I remain concerned
about the platform AIPAC provides for leaders who express
bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights. For that
reason I will not attend their conference. 1/2

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) blasted the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Sunday in a statement
confirming that he would not attend the pro-Israel
organization’s annual conference.

Sanders tweeted that he would not attend the conference due
to AIPAC’s connection to “leaders who express bigotry and
oppose basic Palestinian rights,” an apparent reference to
the current administration of Israel headed by Benjamin
Netanyahu, whom Sanders has repeatedly criticized in the
past.

We flatly reject Senator Sanders’ smears of @AIPAC and will
attend its Policy Conference in greater numbers than ever
before, led by our CEO, @DavidHarrisAJC.
