AIPAC Opposes Bill to Cut U.S. Aid to Palestinians

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

The nation’s leading pro-Israel lobbying group opposes new legislation that would cut off U.S. aid to the Palestinians, according to multiple sources tracking the debate.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the country’s top pro-Israel outfit, is not supporting new legislation by Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) that would cut off aid to the Palestinian government following its decision to form a unity government with the terror group Hamas.
