Congresswoman Calls AIPAC a 'Hate Group' After They Attack Her in Ad

Quote
A pro-Palestinian member of Congress is upset that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) harshly criticized her positions on Israel, calling them a "hate group" following the publication of an ad on Facebook.

Rep. Betty McCollum, a Democrat, has become one of Israel's strongest critics. She also claims to be "pro-Israel." She has introduced a bill that would prohibit any U.S. military aid to Israel from being used to detain children. She voted against the resolution condemning Rep. Ilhan Omar's comments about Jews running the U.S. She voted against the anti-BDS resolution in the House last year.

AIPAC said in the ad that McCollum and other pro-Palestinian members of Congress pose a threat "more sinister than ISIS." Was that "over the top"?

AIPAC's comment might have been hyperbole, but "hate speech"? And AIPAC is a "hate group"? McCollum outed herself as antisemitic, IMO.

Does the SPLC have a rating for AIPAC?
