We all know by now that J-Street is the anti-Israel “peace” group that pretends it is pro-Israel, and exists primarily to give the Obama administration a cover to say that its policies have the support of the Jewish community. But its existence, evidently, is not enough for the legions of American and foreign leftists who seek to create an openly anti-Israel new organization, one that seeks to delegitimize Israel and which hopes for its destruction. These people have now created such a group, which they call “Move Over AIPAC.”
Its first national gathering is scheduled to take place a few days in advance of AIPAC’s own national policy conference, to be held at the end of May at the Washington DC Convention Center. The AIPAC event will be highlighted by a major speech by Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and includes representation from every major Democrat and Republican in both houses of Congress.
So what is the proclaimed purpose of the new group, which seeks to destroy AIPAC and limit its influence, and who is behind it? On their website, the group proclaims that it will “bring activists and concerned citizens from around the country to learn about the extraordinary influence AIPAC has on U.S. policy and how to strengthen an alternative that respects the rights of all people in the region.” Of course they say they only want an “even-handed” policy for the Middle East, while their sponsors and their propaganda indicate otherwise.
