WASHINGTON, March 2, 2012 (WAFA) – Occupy AIPAC, which calls for a new American foreign policy in the Middle East, Thursday kicked off a week of actions to protest Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the Unites States and his push for war on Iran, according to a statement issued by the group.
Occupy AIPAC kicked off the actions in New York City when a member disrupted US President Barack Obama by shouting: “Use your leadership; no war on Iran.”
Obama replied, “No one’s announced a war, young lady. You’re jumping the gun a bit there.”
Iran will be a key topic of discussion when Obama meets with Netanyahu and when both leaders address the America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.
Occupy AIPAC will urge Obama to reject the Israeli push for war on Iran and insist on respect for Palestinian rights.
