Being at the AIPAC Policy Conference has been a really great experience. Hearing the nations leaders profess their support for Israel has been really eye-opening. The number of people who are supportive of Israel is absolutely amazing. They don’t fall into the categories that you would expect. Pro-Israel activists are Jewish and Christian, black and white, old and young. There is no “typical AIPAC member.” Instead, there is diversity here, which makes sense – Israel does not appeal to any one person for the same reasons that it appeals to another person. The thing that is most in common is support for the Jewish State.
