The former head of the Anti Defamation League Abe Foxman criticizes AIPAC for endorsing 37 Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 election results.

“Sad mistake! Israel’s security depends on America being a strong democracy,” Foxman tweets. “Those who undermine America‘s democracy undermine America and a weak America will not be able to stand and support its ally Israel.”

AIPAC spokesman Marshall Wittmann defended the endorsements of the lobby’s new political action committee, saying, “as a single-issue organization, we remain focused on our mission of building bipartisan support in Congress to strengthen the US-Israel relationship.’

The 37 endorsements were among 120, which included dozens for Democratic lawmakers.

Since launching 10 weeks ago, AIPAC’s PAC says it has raised over $1.67 million and an additional $1 million for candidates.
