Hoenlein On The AIPAC Scandal
Executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Malcolm Hoenlein, rips the American media in an op-ed piece for the JTA:
There have been hundreds, even thousands, of articles in the American press regarding an FBI investigation involving the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
While the reports imply or assert various charges, none in fact has been lodged, despite an investigation that has lasted more than a year. While information has dribbled out, it’s still hard to discern exactly what wrong allegedly has been committed that would justify such a highly publicized case.
Leaders and members of the Jewish community are confident that there is no substance to the allegations, yet their level of concern is increasing. Why?
