Leading rabbi connected to AIPAC calls for limiting aid to the ‘fanatical,’ violent Israel

Here is an interesting sermon from Rosh Hashanah. Jonathan Blake, a leading Reform rabbi in New York, likens Israel to Abraham and says there is a good Israel and an “Israel of dangerous fanaticism” that lifts a knife against the innocent. Then he calls on American Jews to restrain the bad Israel by “redirect”-ing money […]

As AIPAC sputters, ‘Americans for Peace Now’ publicizes ‘apartheid’ charge

There was big news inside the Israel lobby yesterday: the legendary Israel lobbying group AIPAC will not hold its annual conference next spring, citing lingering covid concerns– if you believe that, and I don’t.

Even AIPAC was alarmed by rise of Israeli racist party in 2019. Now, who cares!

What happens when Israel just keeps turning into such a rightwing Jewish-supremacist country that American Israel-lovers lose their stomach for defending it?

It’s Kamala With protests against police brutality raging and activists pushing for criminal justice reform, Joe Biden picked a former a tough-on-crime prosecutor as his running mate.

One pleasurable surprise of the AIPAC policy conference in early March — the leading Israel lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee — was how much bad press the organization got.
