Rockets, Iranian Nukes Top AIPAC Agenda

Jonathan Schanzer

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert addressed the AIPAC policy conference yesterday in Washington, DC. On the topic of Palestinian rockets, the prime minister stated:

“… if one city, one small city in your state, in your district, was bombed, not even on a daily basis, but just once, with one single missile,
what would you do? Would you not demand that your government stand up immediately and take the necessary action to defend your citizens?” Read Olmert’s prepared remarks here.

Next to the Iranian nuclear threat, the daily Palestinian rocket bombardment of Israel’s south was one of the most important subjects covered at the conference. For the JPC’s newest initiative on this strategic threat to Israel, visit Palestinian Rocket Report at www.jewishpolicycenter.org/prr.
