After attending AIPAC I understand that the organization and its conferences raise awareness of the most pressing issues affecting Israel and focuses on raising funds to influence our elected representatives to support Israel.
I witnessed how the media twists what our leaders say, interpreting their statements with bias rather than fact. The reporting of President Obama’s speech varied depending on a reporter’s bias on the issue(s) of the US support for Israel and Israel’s thoughts and actions regarding Iraq. Takeaway: I have no doubt that President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu are working together to resolve these issues with full understanding of the stakes involved both in potential human and political casualties and judgment in the court of world opinion.
