Extremist anti- Israel groups planning on protesting AIPAC again

A consortium of  extremist anti-Israel groups, including Code Pink,  End The Occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace,  Students for Justice in Palestine East  and If Americans Knew have begun plans to disrupt the Washington AIPAC Policy Conference, in an effort to  "Shut Down AIPAC"

With nearly 14,000 expected in DC  to help nuture a strong relationship between Israel and America, the assorted fringe groups are going to have a rather difficult time.

Maybe their friends from Hezbollah will join them again this year.


Expect the usual shrill disruptions, inane signage and mindless blather that is characteristic of a Code Pink event.

As of now, their agenda includes.

February 28-March 3, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu will be in DC to address AIPAC, join CODEPINK and Humanity for Palestine for actions to #ShutDownAIPAC!

Is anyone organizing a counter-demonstration I could join? I could drive down to DC from Brooklyn, perhaps with a few chaverim.

Do we really need a counter-demonstration when 14,000 will be attending the AIPAC conference? That in itself shows how irrelevant the protesters are. The best thing you could do is to join the conference, network with other like minded activists, build your skill set, and add your voice to those dedicated to a strong relationship between Israel and America.

well aside from the now two Japanese prisoners that were beheaded ISIS has now burned to death the Jordanian pilot they had in captivity. on top of that today there were some knife attacks on French police protecting Jewish establishments. but don't expect any of these "humanitarians" to pay much attention to that they're to busy protesting an AIPAC conference and no doubt later what will probably be the execution of that terrorist chick in Jordan that ISIS wanted freed.

This may be the most important event in modern Jewish history since 1973, so I would say there is a need for a counter-demonstration. If obama gets a deal that creates iranian nuclear weapons, then Israel's demise (and that of the Jewish people) is merely a matter of time. If obama's appeasement can be headed off, then the people of Israel may yet live. If a demonstration of freedom supporters cannot be raised against terror & tyranny, then hope for a free future is lost. The time is now.
