Taking a love of Israel advocacy to Washington, D.C.
Exclusive interview with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN). We discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and why people shouldn’t say it’s never going to end.
“By the way, your ambassador is doing a great job.”
At AIPAC this year, there has been lots of focus on Iran and other threats to Israel’s security. But recent elections have shown Israelis are more concerned about domestic issues.
Our first report from the opening plenary session of AIPAC 2013. Highlights include Obama needing to convince Israel he’s a friend, humanitarian aid going to the Assad regime, advocating for lethal assistance in Syria, and a plug for Israel’s lovely beaches.
It was clear who President Obama was speaking to. Not just to AIPAC. But to Jewish voters. To those doubting his support for Israel. To those concerned about his commitment. To them he said, “I have Israel’s back.”
Abbas says freezing settlement construction is a “precondition” to talking peace. Should there be Israeli “preconditions” to peace? Like abolishing hate speech against Jews?
AIPAC Policy Conference is here. And TC Jewfolk is going to be in the thick of it, live from DC. We’ll also be interviewing Franken, Bachmann, Ellison & more! Stay tuned!
Go to AIPAC PC, & you can stand before your Congressman & say “I am in your district, & here is what I want you to do for Israel.”
