Action Alert
AIPAC tried to push a bill that would make war with Iran more likely. They lost.

Help ensure we’ll be ready for the next round.

Today’s newspapers carried an unusual headline, but one we hope to see again and again: AIPAC, the fearsome lobbying group that advocates unconditional U.S. support for Israeli policies, has suffered a humbling defeat.

AIPAC had been making a heavy push for a bill calling for new U.S. sanctions on Iran even as diplomatic talks between the two countries are underway, making the prospect of war more likely. When Senate Republicans on Thursday called for an immediate vote on the bill, AIPAC, apparently fearful of a humiliating defeat, issued a statement opposing the move for a vote.

Just days earlier, people like you made it possible for Jewish Voice for Peace to run a prominent ad opposing the bill on Politico.com, a high-profile website catering to DC insiders. This enabled us to send a strong message: AIPAC does not speak for U.S. Jews. Just as important, this proves that AIPAC can not only be challenged: It can be defeated.

The best time to build on this victory is now. Click here to make a tax-deductible donation to JVP and help ensure that AIPAC’s next attempt to dictate U.S. policy in the Middle East will be met with an even more decisive defeat.

Onward,

Stefanie Fox
Co-Director of Organizing
