Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Jewish American Leaders Demand AIPAC Apologize over Islamophobic Ads Attacking “The Squad”

HeadlineAug 13, 2021

At least 45 prominent Jewish American leaders are calling on AIPAC — the American Israel Public Affairs Committee — to apologize to progressive congresswomen of color, accusing the lobby group of putting their lives at risk with repeated Islamophobic attack ads. The ads link Congressmembers Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to terrorism and mirror language used in death threats they have received. Omar and Tlaib are the first two Muslim congresswomen, and Tlaib is Palestinian American. They have been vocal critics of Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights and its killing of Palestinians.
