President Trump accuses Democrats of being anti-Israel, anti-Jewish

One 2020 Democratic candidate, John Delaney, a former Maryland congressman, said he would not attend AIPAC because of a scheduling conflict, and an aide said he was "disappointed" to miss it.

Sanders' policy director Josh Orton confirmed his plans and said Sanders is "concerned about the platform AIPAC is providing for leaders who have expressed bigotry and oppose a two-state solution".

The demand by MoveOn.org comes just weeks after freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar accused supporters of Israel of having been bought off by AIPAC's money - a charge that drew cries of anti-Semitism and then a progressive backlash over a planned House vote rebuking her comments. "Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that". Instead, concerns such as the partisan nature of AIPAC and the presence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the conference guided the decision, she said.

Netanyahu, an ally of President Donald Trump, is facing bribery and breach of trust charges to be brought by Israel's attorney general.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, who have addressed the annual gathering in the past, will be skipping it this year, according to multiple reports.

Citing a new internal survey, the organisation said on Wednesday that more than 74 percent of its members agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: "Any progressive vying to be the Democratic nominee for president should skip the AIPAC conference". They include Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Sen.

Netanyahu thanked Trump for the gesture.

The Oslo Accords are a set of agreements between the Government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) signed in 1993 and 1995, which were aimed at fulfilling the "right of the Palestinian people to self-determination". But they are totally anti-Israel.

Israel defines itself as a Jewish and democratic state with a liberal democracy, with a parliamentary system, proportional representation, and universal suffrage. "Anti-semitism has no place in the United States Congress", he said during a cabinet meeting. Some Jewish Democrats were openly frustrated that the measure didn't exclusively include anti-Semitism, and 23 Republicans voted against it because they believed it was watered down.

The intense differences among the Democratic ranks over the U.S.

In the early stages of the process, candidates traditionally adopt positions that appeal to their party's base; in other words, they are courting people who will vote for them in the critical Democratic primaries.

"Nothing that the Republican Party has ever tried to do to win over Jewish voters on the Israel issue has worked".

Omar recieved pushback for arguing that pro-Israel advocates are pushing "allegiance to a foreign country".
