The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the most powerful lobby in the world, wrapped up its 2014 Policy Conference on March 4, where Iran’s supposed pursuit of nuclear weapons, as well as the Ukrainian crisis and Russian response, were the central themes of the gathering.
AIPAC is notorious for its influence—some would say its lock—on American foreign policy, elections and Congress.
The promotional video for the 2014 AIPAC Policy Conference boasts that AIPAC representatives and pro-Israel partisans have held “special meetings” with all the members of Congress—100 senators and 435 congressmen. “This is democracy at work,” stated the video cheerfully.
“Where else can you see prime ministers, presidents, secretaries of states, leaders of Congress? The only place that you can see that is here at the AIPAC Policy Conference,” an AIPAC representative declared in the promotional video.
