While AIPAC claims to represent mainstream values and mainstream voters, nothing could be further from the truth -- and they do not speak for me.
Not when it comes to backing the right-wing settlement movement endangering Israel’s future. Not when it comes to their indifference to Palestinian rights and freedoms. Not when it comes to supporting extreme, anti-democratic Republicans. And not when it comes to their efforts to thwart diplomacy and the Iran nuclear deal.
The overwhelming majority of Democratic voters, Jewish voters and pro-Israel voters support justice, freedom, democracy and equality -- for Israelis and Palestinians, and here at home.
As AIPAC’s actions have made clear, they do not share these goals and values. They do not speak on my behalf.
Sincerely, the undersigned
