    WASHINGTON – Few people are entirely neutral in their assessment of the work and influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Whether revered, feared or reviled, AIPAC is seen by some as an icon of pro-Israel advocacy – or the bogeyman symbolizing everything that's wrong with America's political lobbying and fundraising scene. But no matter how it's characterized, AIPAC's political evolution over the past three years has been one of the defining stories of U.S. politics.

    OnlyFans’ billionaire owner, Leonid Radvinsky, and his wife reportedly pledged $11 million to the powerhouse pro-Israel lobby American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, last year, according to an internal donor list obtained by The Lever. Radvinsky has denied making or pledging the donation. According to confidential internal documents reviewed by The Lever, AIPAC reported a massive $90 million fundraising haul in the month following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack against Israel. One contribution stood out: an $11 million pledge from a “Mr. Anonymous Anonymous” and Katie Chudnovsky, the largest listed contribution in the documents. The Lever was able to confirm...

    @RepThomasMassie This baseless smear is meant to intimidate me into voting to send $14+ billion of your money to a foreign country. Please let AIPAC know we are broke, and these tactics don’t work on this Congressman. @AIPAC Charges of dual loyalty are antisemitic and insult millions of patriotic Americans who stand by Israel. The U.S. is stronger when Israel is secure. No misrepresentation, your vote says it all: NO to standing with Israel NO to condemning Hamas NO to helping Israel win this war

Are you going to change?’” said Nuaimi in comments to a special online briefing organized by the...

The money has helped AIPAC-backed candidates wipe out progressives in primaries in Michigan, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, California and Ohio. UDP and other pro-Israel groups tied to AIPAC – Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI), Urban Empowerment Action PAC and Pro-Israel America PAC —...

    The White House announced on Thursday that Karine Jean-Pierre, a veteran anti-Israel activist who is married to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, will replace outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki, raising potential ethical quandaries. The announcement drew celebratory headlines in the mainstream press: Jean-Pierre is the first black woman and openly gay person to serve in the role. But her relationship with the CNN reporter raises ethical questions about her new role. The White House did not respond to a request for comment about whether Jean-Pierre would recuse herself in dealing with CNN. Malveaux's colleagues include Valerie Jarrett's daughter, CNN justice correspondent...

    Progressive Democrat Nina Turner teased a 2024 presidential bid during a concession speech on Tuesday after she was defeated in her bid to challenge Democratic Representative Shontel Brown. Brown defeated Turner with 66.3 percent of the vote to 33.7 percent in Ohio's 11th congressional district. Turner had read most of her concession speech from her phone but toward the end of her remarks, she said she would speak "extemporaneously" and stopped reading. "Sister Turner ain't going nowhere," Turner said and the crowed applauded and cheered. Turner made reference to the late former Representative Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman ever...

    The director of Amnesty International USA on Wednesday said Israel "shouldn't exist as a Jewish state" in the wake of his organization's release of a controversial report on Israel that drew backlash from U.S. officials. American Jews want a "safe Jewish space," Executive Director Paul O'Brien said, rather than an explicitly Jewish state. O'Brien, who is not Jewish, called on the Jewish community to "collectively change the conversation" and bring about a secular state by adhering to "core Jewish values, which are to be principled and fair and just." "Amnesty takes no political views on any question, including the right...

    Facebook refused to remove an attack ad falsely linking Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar to Hamas, even after her aides said similar claims had resulted in death threats to the lawmaker in the past. The ad was produced by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the pro-Israel lobbying group, and showed the face of the Minnesota lawmaker, who is Muslim, superimposed onto rockets fired by Gaza militants toward Israel. "When Israel targets Hamas, Rep. Omar calls it an act of terrorism," the caption said. The ad is still live on Facebook. The ad seemed to be based on a tweet by...

In a tweet on Friday, AIPAC wrote: “We are disappointed the administration is revoking sanctions on the International Criminal Court officials who are pursuing a baseless and discriminatory attack...
