You mean powerful *Likud* lobby. AIPAC wants to be known as Israeli, sure?or better yet, Jewish; all the better to claim to represent the greatest number of people at once, and cow Congress as much as possible. Congress implicitly wants to avoid opposing Jews just because they're Jews, which can be construed as anti-Semitism. But strip off the mask and AIPAC represents neither most Jews nor most Israelis. It's just Likud. It's just the settlers. And the sooner we Americans as a whole, like many of us Jewish Americans, realize that, the sooner we can get down to opposing them.
