Biden Avoids Mention of Settlement Building as Protesters Stage “Occupy AIPAC

HeadlineMar 05, 2013

Monday’s speech marked Vice President Joe Biden’s first appearance before the AIPAC gathering since 2009, when he angered the crowd by calling for a freeze on expanding illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. This time, Biden made no mention of the settlements. Dozens of people have been protesting the AIPAC conference under the banner of Occupy AIPAC or Expose AIPAC. Many have dressed up in settlement costumes — large square “blocs” — to protest the settlements.
