In today’s society, it is extremely difficult to be united with so many people that you share such a strong passion for something with. AIPAC policy conference brings Jews and non Jews alike, who are in Washington DC because they all share a common love and passion for the existence of the state of Israel. Rev. Kenneth Flowers, the Senior Pastor from the Great New Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit Michigan, talked about the common bonds shared between African Americans and Jews alike. Through his speech, and his discussion panel, the participants were able to see comparisons between the Bible and Torah, the Civil Rights movement, and the Holocaust, both of which are subjects that I have always been extremely interested in learning about.
