“AIPAC shares the outrage and deep concern of our fellow Americans about the inexcusable violence and sickening displays of racism and anti-Semitism in Charlottesville this past weekend. The vile hatred expressed by neo-Nazis, the KKK and white supremacists must be categorically and unambiguously rejected. We urge all elected officials to reject moral equivalence between those who promote hate and those who oppose it. There must be no quarter for bigotry in our country.’”
It is strange indeed that whilst AIPAC is outraged by the violence, racism and antisemitism in Charlottesville and categorically rejects the vile hatred exposed, it is not outraged by the brutal military occupation of former Palestine or the illegal blockade of essential supplies for the 500,000 Arab families in Gaza who are forced to live without power as a result of Israel’s deliberate destruction of its electricity supplies.
In fact, AIPAC actively arms, funds and supports the Occupation and the illegal settlement that has induced over 600,000 Israelis to settle on Palestinian land.
AIPAC rejects UN Resolution 2334 that condemns the Israeli government illegal settlement policy notwithstanding that the United States is bound by that Resolution as a UN Member.
AIPAC’s outrage is a ‘selective’ outrage that helps one community, whilst violating another and AIPAC’s claimed indignation at the abuse of human rights, apparently only extends to Virginia, in the United States of America.
