The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the pro-Israeli lobbying group in Washington, have been in the headlines all week long, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking before them on Monday. The focus has been on how much influence the Israeli lobbying group has over Washington and whether J-Street, the more moderate Israeli lobbying group, may give President Obama a chance to push back against Israel and Netanyahu. But why aren't we seeing more Palestinian lobbying groups?
We've heard of AIPAC, but where are the Palestinian lobby groups?
