Hundreds of anti-AIPAC billboards have been posted across central subway stations in downtown Washington D.C. proclaiming that “AIPAC does not speak for me”.
Sponsored by the left-wing Jewish Voice for Peace and the Avaaz global advocacy group, the posters were highly visible to many of the 13,000 delegates attending the pro-Israel lobby’s annual conference.
 “AIPAC does not speak for me. Most Jewish Americans are pro­peace. AIPAC is not,” the billboards say.
Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director of Jewish Voice for Peace, said: “AIPAC is the NRA of foreign policy lobbies, pushing a right­wing agenda that does not represent the majority of Jewish Americans: Its support for military build­up and endless settlement expansion makes peace impossible. It cannot claim to speak for all American Jews.”
The posters are part of a concerted effort by left-wing groups outside the Jewish establishment to get their voices heard during the three-day AIPAC conference. Protesters from various radical Jewish and Palestinian groups have held vigils outside the entrances to the Washington Convention Center, where the conference is being held, leading to some scuffles with police and AIPAC delegates.
