Yes, Yes AIPAC technically does not directly give money to American candidates; true. What they do do is give money to political action committees that are in lockstep with their views, who then give the money to the American candidates. If there is an American politician who takes views that are opposed to AIPAC agenda, then AIPAC will target them, like a sniper, by funding the opponent heavily in the next election. This sniping has been amazingly effective for AIPAC; they only spend about $3 million a year which by in large keeps our spineless, money grubbing politicians in line.
