From a small pro-Israel public affairs boutique in the 1950s, AIPAC has grown into a 100,000-member national grassroots movement described as “the most important organization affecting America’s relationship with Israel.”
AIPAC works closely with Congress to secure vital U.S. foreign aid for Israel and promotes strategic cooperation between the two nations, to develop sound U.S. anti-terrorist policies, and to share homeland security techniques.
