Multiple Democratic presidential candidates said Thursday that they wont attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committees annual conference in Washington next week.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former U.S. Rep. Beto ORourke of Texas, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, are among the 2020 contenders who have decided not to attend. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering an independent bid for president, will also avoid the AIPAC conference.
It comes as the liberal advocacy group MoveOn has called on Democratic presidential candidates to skip this years policy conference, saying AIPAC had tried to thwart the Iran nuclear deal and had employed anti-Muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric. By not attending, the Democratic candidates can demonstrate their progressive bona fides in an increasingly crowded 2020 field.
But it also gives President Donald Trump an opportunity to highlight his ties to the Israeli government. As the Democrats distance themselves from AIPAC, Trump said Thursday that it is time for the United States to recognize Israels control over the disputed Golan Heights.

The Jewish voters need to rethink whom they are going to support. And I guess Sanders and Shultz are just a couple of Marxist Capos!
Attenion American Jews: open your eyes and ears.
Muslims are running the show now, eh?
Ever since 9/11 when they incinerated 3000 innocent Americans we’ve been bending over backwards for them.
Damn W and his “great religion of peace” happy talk. And damn noname for “you have nothing to fear from a President Obama”.
Bet they will all suck up to CAIR
They won’t. They will keep voting Dem no matter what.
Dems gonna “MoveOn” from pretending they ever liked Jews.
Before you know it, it’ll be impossible to advance in the Democratic Party without having it out for them.
Kapos and Nazis - that’s today’s DemoKrap party!
All those who look upon white Christian Americans as the Main Enemy will never change.
So will a sizable number of nominal US “Christians”.
Excuse me Jewish people, why in heavens name are you still voting Dem? Israel is in the Bible. Why are you trying to kill off your religion? I don’t get it...
Now we see by their self- selection, no less who some of the enemies are. ( comment -/ AIPAC is far too leftist and appeasement oriented for my tastes, but its still a major policy forum that any serious candidate would want to participate in but for any anti- Semitic bigotry they may harbor. This report alerts us to who is problematical we will watch these candidates very carefully now!)
The “nominal” Christians aren’t only 2 percent of the population yet are responsible for HALF of the money dems get.
Jewish folks are doing that.
They need to stop.
true but not what the article is about
The anti-Semites are on the march!
> and yet the majority of American Jews will still vote RAT... <
You beat me to it.
Suppose the Democratic nominee for president in 2020 would say this: “Israel must be completely be destroyed. And every Israeli must die.”
Then the average American Jew would say this: “You’re a Democrat. So you’ve got my vote!”
In a way, it is; certainly if what you said is what the article is about, this is a related if not wholly similar dimension.
The phrase “Jewish folks” is reminiscent of something Obama might say, with all due respect.
And what is similar between the nominal Christians and the liberal Jews that vote Democrat is their politics, never mind their lukewarm if not utterly cold attitude towards religion.
Half the money the DNC gets is from Jews. Not sure if this is a good idea for them (not that American Jews all care about AIPAC)
