Warren nods as audience member calls AIPAC an ‘unholy alliance’ of ‘islamophobes’ and ‘white nationalists’

She boycotted the event last year, too

At a campaign event in Derry, New Hampshire, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) committed to boycotting the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) annual conference this year, while nodding along with an attendee's criticism that the pro-Israel group is getting too cozy with "islamophobes" and "white nationalists."

During the Thursday rally, a member of the audience asked Warren whether or not she would boycott the pro-Israel group's annual event, saying that Democrats shouldn't "legitimize" the group's supposed "bigotry."

"I'm an American Jew and I'm terrified by the unholy alliance that AIPAC is forming with islamophobes and anti-Semites and white nationalists, and no Democrat should legitimize that kind of bigotry by attending their annual policy conference," she said to Warren. "I'm really grateful you skipped the AIPAC conference last year, so my question is if you'll join me in committing to skip the AIPAC conference this March?"

While taking a drink from her water glass, the candidate can be seen nodding along with the attendee's assessment before answering with a quick "yeah" to applause from the audience.

Footage of the full event can be found on C-Span, but a snippet containing the exchange can be seen here:

She later went on to outline her vision for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying that "we need to get both parties to the table. We're not getting that if we just stand with one party."

The leftist Jewish group IfNotNow later tweeted that the question was asked on their behalf as part of an effort along with other leftist organizations to get Democratic presidential candidates to skip the pro-Israel conference.

Warren was one of several 2020 Democrats who joined together to boycott last year's AIPAC annual conference. This year's conference will be March 1-3 in Washington, D.C.

Warren's campaign did not immediately respond to request for comment.
