Don't miss this podcast about We Hold These Truths' vigil outside Washington, DC while the AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committe) convention was going on. We discuss the importance of the gift given to President Obama by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. And, we look into that Jewish festival, Purim? Also, we discuss the Occupy AIPAC event that we participated in and that served as a counter balance to the heavy handed lobby for Israel, AIPAC.
President Obama, in his speech to the AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) convention on March 4, 2012, in addition to all the groveling he did at the feet of AIPAC and Israel, made a curious statement that "...we will always reject the notion that Zionism is racism." Orthodox Jew, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss does not agree. Rabbi Weiss and members of Neturei Karta were participating in the Occupy AIPAC counter-demonstration to the annual AIPAC' convention and gave this interview to WHTT. Occupy AIPAC is a coalition of over 350 organizations who oppose the drive by Israel to make war on Iran with the US backing it.
