Thousands of Jews and many others took to the streets to protest outside this year’s AIPAC conference in condemnation of Israel’s increasingly hostile policies towards Palestinians, in the world’s largest Jewish-led anti-settlement protest.

The annual conference typically attracts around 15,000 pro-Israel Americans and two thirds of the US Congress.

According to the AIPAC 2017 official website, the conference aims to examine the ways in which pro-Israel lobbying and advocacy can be advanced.


“Over three jam-packed days, Policy Conference participants choose from hundreds of informative sessions and participate in the pro-Israel community’s largest and most important advocacy day.”

With the discourse in Israel becoming increasingly dominated by right wing Zionists, the suffering of Palestinians has amplified significantly in recent months with home demolitions, settlement expansions and a crackdown on human rights.

Palestinians took to Twitter to express their solidarity with the marchers and show that hate and discrimination is no match for peace, love and unity.

  1. The Israeli government is finding it harder to hide it’s activities against the Palestinian people from the Israeli people. This gives me hope that a revolution will take place from the inside out…..the Israeli people will bring about the necessary changes that will ultimately lead to peace. My hope is that this takes place before a greater tragedy against the Palestinian people occurs.
