 American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is an American lobbying group that advocates for pro-Israel policies to the Congress and Executive Branch of the United States. It has been described as one of the most powerful lobbying groups in Washington. The current President of the AIPAC is David Victor, from Detroit, Michigan.


Describing itself as "America's Pro-Israel Lobby," AIPAC is a mass-membership organization whose members include Democrats, Republicans, and independents. The New York Times calls it "the most important organization affecting America's relationship with Israel." As an independent, not-for-profit entity, AIPAC is funded entirely through contributions from its members.
