Broad coalition attends teach-in on Israel lobby ahead
of AIPAC conference
Mondoweiss, March 25, 2017
The leading pro Israel group AIPAC (American Israel Public
Affairs Committee) is meeting this weekend in Washington and
ahead of it yesterday I went to the annual teach-in against the
Israel lobby at the National Press Club. There was an audience
of 600 and a lot of excitement. The political atomization of the
Trump era had not penetrated this hall. The speakers represented
many different points of view, from US nationalist to
leftwing/Palestinian to realist to Arab-American.
