AIPAC Response to NBC News’ Charge of Dual Loyalty

Earlier today, NBC News posted an article challenging whether a longtime AIPAC member could be trusted with a security position in the Biden administration due to her support for Israel. The charge of dual loyalty has a long and disturbing anti-Semitic history. It has been used for generations to question the patriotism of pro-Israel Americans and undermine our rights. It is a targeted accusation that our community cannot be trusted, and that we are unlike other Americans. It is inexcusable for a major news outlet to perpetuate this offensive charge. Tonight, we posted this tweet in response to the story:

NBC News must retract this offensive story. Charges of dual loyalty are anti-Semitic and insult millions of Americans—Jewish and non-Jewish—who stand by our ally Israel.  We will not be deterred from exercising our rights as citizens to advocate for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.

NBC NEWS Foundation linked to Biden pick for cybersecurity gave $500,000 to pro-Israel lobby AIPAC Anne Neuberger was named senior director for cyber policy on the National Security Council. She spent the last decade at the National Security Agency.
