Warren appears to agree with supporter that AIPAC is an ‘unholy alliance’ of ‘Islamophobes,’ ‘white nationalists’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., raised eyebrows on Thursday night for appearing to agree with a town hall attendee that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is an “unholy alliance” of “Islamophobes, anti-Semites, and white nationalists.”

At a New Hampshire event, a woman who describes herself as an “American Jew” expressed her disdain for the pro-Israel group and asked whether or not Warren would vow not to attend the upcoming annual conference in March.

“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,” the attendee began. “And no Democrat should legitimize that kind of bigotry by attending their annual policy conference.”

Warren nodded along as she took a swig from her water bottle.

The attendee continued. “I’m really grateful that you skipped the AIPAC conference last year and so my question is if you’ll join me in committing to skip the AIPAC conference this year.”

“Yeah,” Warren simply replied and waved off the attendee.

She later said about her views on U.S.-Israel relations, “For America to be a good ally of Israel and the Palestinians we need to get both parties to the table. We’re not getting that if we just stand with one party.”

The Warren campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Warren, who previously attended other AIPAC events in recent years, was one of several prominent 2020 candidates who boycotted the annual conference last year. Meanwhile, top Democratic lawmakers like House Speaker  Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. attended the conference last year.
