"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say." - Edward Snowden

This week, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was dragged mercilessly after highlighting the pro-Israel lobby’s financial and political influence in Washington, D.C., which critics across the spectrum dubbed anti-Semitic. She has since issued an apology, but the lobby itself has been caught on tape boasting about how it uses money — or “Benjamins,” in Omar’s parlance — to influence American politics. (Meanwhile, amid calls for her to resign, Omar grilled Elliott Abrams, Donald Trump’s special envoy to Venezuela, about his time covering up massacres in Latin America.)

AIPAC officials aren’t the only hypocrites in town. As Mehdi Hasan writes, many prominent writers have openly acknowledged AIPAC’s political influence, which he argues is no different than that of any other major lobby, like the National Rifle Association or Big Pharma. Calling out that influence shouldn’t be treated any different, either.
