New York City’s new mayor, Bill de Blasio, told an AIPAC gathering last week: “Part of my job description is to be a defender of Israel." Indeed, New York mayors have been outspoken defenders of Israel since the state's establishment.
Anne Frank's appeal: Last week, JTA reported on Anne Frank's appeal among Japanese, while a controversy about a German miniseries about her also made headlines. In the 1950s, a stage version of Frank’s diary was produced around the world. In 1956, JTA reported that German audiences "reacted with shocked silence." A year later, Israel’s president attended the show's premiere in the Jewish state.
AIPAC'S clashes: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is battling with President Obama over Iran sanctions, but he is not the only U.S. president to clash with the pro-Israel lobbying group. In the 1980s, AIPAC opposed President Reagan's sale of AWACS radar planes and other weapons to Saudi Arabia. And in 1991, the group fought with President George H.W. Bush over loan guarantees for Israel.
