AOC vs. AIPAC: Bronx/Queens lawmaker slams group for criticizing far-right colleague over opposition to pro-Israeli resolution

Bronx/Queens Congress Member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a firestorm on social media this week when she blasted the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC — calling them “no friend to American democracy.” 

The dust up began in response to a public relations campaign by AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) against Kentucky Congress Member Thomas Massie, a far-right Republican, after he voted against a House resolution symbolically supporting Israel in their ongoing war against Hamas.
