Washington, D.C. — March 26, 2016 … AIPAC brought together over 18,000 Jews from around the US and Israel. In doing so and having invited all of the US Presidential candidates AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) made one request. Show respect to the speakers. Do not boo, do not yell, do not display any signs or banners. Do not walk out.
We all know that if we have two Jews, we will hear three opinions. But not one Jew yelled out or held a protest sign as businessman Donald Trump took the stage.
Trump, who is known for making racist, abusive remarks has stated that he was “neutral” on Palestinians. Anyone who knows anything about Israel and Middle East politics knows that one cannot be neutral with Palestinians or with any of Israel’s neighbors. When one is fighting an enemy who advocates Jihad or Holy War against all Jews and Christians, you cannot “negotiate” as Trump suggested with those who want to murder you.
