AIPAC’s Policy Conference returns to Washington this weekend. Like many other pro-Israel Americans, I know that America’s relationship with our closest ally in the Middle East, and the only Jewish state in the world, is best sustained when it transcends the partisan rancor that divides entrenched opponents on so many other issues. Diverse American political support for Israel is a source of strength for both nations and for the Jewish community.
During this first Policy Conference during the Trump administration, how do we avoid letting shared pro-Israel values be overwhelmed by differences on other issues – or differences on what it means to be “pro-Israel”? The answer is clear: we don’t shrink from those differences, but we express our positions with passion, with vigor, and with respect.
When we disagree with this Administration, as we have with presidents from both parties over many decades, we do so as clearly and powerfully as we can.
