Fake AIPAC press release calls for 'settlement freeze'

NPR reported on Monday morning that AIPAC had issued a call to stop all settlements. There's just one problem: The call was fake.
Getting ready to go downtown to hear Secretary of State Hillary Clinton address the AIPAC conference, I was surprised to hear on NPR that AIPAC had issued a statement calling on Israel to stop all settlements.

But I couldn't find such a statement on AIPAC's website and when I checked in with the AIPAC spokesman, he said the statement is fake.

"Someone faked my email address," AIPAC spokesman Josh Block said by email. "It's fake."
I wonder who did that.


Lefty blog Mondoweiss is now reporting that Code Pink was behind the press release (Hat Tip: Ben Smith via Twitter). Here's the press release:

Here I thought Eric Yoffie wrote the press release. What is it with Reform Jews and their ephemeral attachment to Jerusalem I will never get.

As some wag once said, there are no 3rd generation Reform Jews.
One need only to look at Moses Mendelssohn to see the truth of this observation.

Dhimmi-Juden-street and their "liberal" cohorts did this

Chrysler 300M, Jeremy Ben Ami and J-Street applauded Hillary Clinton's "ganging up on Israel" AIPAC demarche.

Yep, its pro-Israel, alright!
