(NewsReady.com) – The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Isreal group, has recently lashed out at Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) for refusing to attend its yearly conference.
Sanders claimed that the organization creates a platform for “bigotry.” He believes that AIPAC opposes the basic rights of Palestinians and their desire to live in mutual peace with Israel.
When you go out of your way to praise Castro for his literacy programs and go out of your way to single out Israel for "bigotry," it says a lot about how you view foreign policy.
Over the next week, the Dem. Party will have to decide where it wants to go. https://t.co/7Qec4LYkLw

AIPAC countered by saying that it supports a two-state deal between Israel and Palestine, which it believes debunks any narrative of bigotry. Additionally, it was pointed out that Sanders has never attended a single one of their conferences.
The organization believes that it’s worrisome Sanders would lead the nation without listening to a highly-influential group that speaks about both countries.
