The world has seen two major wars, and one does not have to brief about the consequences that the world faced after the wars. Several countries went to a state where they had to starve and beg for food. The US, Russia, Japan, and Germany are some of the countries that were in a decent position. So many countries had to resort to the powerful global economies to save and redeem them from their plight. As a part of these measures, many organizations and committees were set up so that the nations act in accordance to the peace pact and stick to the moral binding. AIPAC is one among them. So here we are going to chalk down some of the important facts of AIPAC.
The American-Israel Pact:
Israel is one of the smallest nations that faced opposition and threat of being enslaved by a lot of global powers. The constant war that took place between Israel and Palestine added fuel to the fire. In the verge of being enslaved and also to save itself from the wrath that followed of Cold Wars, Israel knocked the doors of the United States of America. As a result of this, the AIPAC was constituted in the year 1951. AIPAC stands for American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
So here goes the mission statement of AIPAC – to strengthen, protect and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of the United States and Israel. To mission statement of the committee visibly states the reason behind the formation of the committee. We do not feel that it is imperative to know ‘who the first president was or who is successor was?’ History is a matter of past and thereby let’s leave it behind. All that matters now is the step taken by AIPAC to turn their mission statement to reality and the ways in which the countries were benefitted after the committee was formed.
Steps taken by AIPAC:
The following are the steps taken by AIPAC as a part of their relations:
- The 2007 Memorandum of Association was called in, and funds for the reformation of Jews were allocated. It amounted to a sum of $30 Million.
- The AIPAC makes sure that Palestine sticks to the pact and takes measures for stopping the terror threats that Israel faces. The United Nations of America also works for the benefit of the relationship between Israel and Palestine.
- America has made sure that the word between the nations is kept up and that Israel doesn’t suffer loss at any cost. AIPAC also takes care of the defense and military systems of the nations. AIPAC ensures that Israel is adequately loaded with arms to protect itself in case of emergency.
- It fought against terrorism by being a supporter of the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1995.
AIPAC’s influence on the USA policies:
AIPAC is termed as the second most powerful influence group in the state. The Congress rule in the US makes sure that it extends its support to the AIPAC and for the betterment of the US – Israel. However, there are certain impacts that the nation took on itself for extending its support for Israel. Today it has more than 65000 members which include dignitaries from both the countries. But there is definitely impact on the recent US foreign policies. The committee was framed when the US policies were entirely different. Now that there are a lot changes in the US policy there are fears that this might stir trouble in the relationship between the nations. Israel is one of the nations that is ready to risk as much as possible to keep peace in stock. So probably this intention can make the committee a going concern.
