The pro-Israel special interest group is the most powerful interest group on behalf of a foreign country in the United States.
In fact, it may be the the most significant and pervasive special interest group in the country.
It consists of numerous institutions and individuals that work to influence Congress, the president, academia, the media, religious institutions, and American public opinion on behalf of Israel. It has been active in the U.S. for many decades.
These groups drive legislation to expend $19 million per day on behalf of Israel despite Israel’s violations of international law and U.S. law, and Israel’s long documented human rights abuses (see this).
The lobby works to propagandize people of all faiths, races, and political backgrounds. It tries to claim that those who disseminate facts they dislike are “antisemitic” – even the many Jewish and Israeli individuals and organizations who work for peace.
Below is a partial list, in no particular order, of groups and individuals that publicly support Israel.
