“As a Jew, I want to welcome anyone who wants to criticize a lobbying coalition funded by arms manufacturers, evangelical Christians, and allies of the right wing edge of Israeli politics. Criticizing AIPAC is not anti-Semitic and it’s absurd that this even needs to be said.”

That's Shane in a nutshell dude. He constantly exaggerates. That's been proven scientifically as a common sign of low self esteem.

“I'm Jewish & a full-time money-in-politics reporter. Everyone knows AIPAC is a very influential pro-Israel lobby that spends money to influence members of Congress.

Not every sentence involving Jewish people & money is anti-Semitic.”

Let’s be honest: the outcry on this would not be nearly as strong if she weren’t a Muslim woman with an Arabic name who wears a hijab.

When there actually is no money and only stereotype, then it is what it is.

Probably true. A flying horse is much more believable than Jesus.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Omar believes this garbage. It’s one of the lazier and most timeless talking points of a rogue’s gallery of cranks, Islamists, and, of course, anti-Semites of the Left and Right, as well as conspiracy theorists generally. Congress is “Israeli Occupied Territory” according to all the worst people.

Now a few points seem worth making. AIPAC isn’t a foreign lobby. It’s an American organization run by Americans. It spends remarkably little on lobbying and Israel spends virtually nothing on lobbying Congress. According to Open Secrets, the biggest political contributor of the “Pro-Israel” lobby in the 2018 cycle was . . . J Street, which spent nearly four times as much ($4,057,820) as the next biggest contributor NORPAC ($1,126,063). Planned Parenthood gave $5,734,048. In 2018, AIPAC did spend the most on lobbying — which is different than contributing. But again, its expenditures were relatively miniscule at 3.5 million. Lawyers spent nearly three times as much on lobbying ($15.4 million) and their contributions totaled over 217 million. The financial, insurance, and real-estate industries contributed nearly $883 million and another half-billion on lobbying.
Takes a special kind to look through all that and see a big money conspiracy of ze joos to get us to generally support the regions only liberal democracy that doesn't execute people for apostasy. A practice some would apparently like to see expanded.

Even Jews that criticize AIPAC were offended by the way she acted.

K

Criticism of Israel or its lobby is not anti-Semitic just because a website editorial says it is.

Think for yourself bro. You can do it!
