Statement on Israel’s Admittance to UN Group

AIPAC applauds the admittance of Israel into the Western Europe and Others Group (WEOG) in Geneva.  The exclusion of Israel from a regional working group in Geneva was a profound affront to decency and justice which the United States has sought to correct for many years.  Israel’s ability to join WEOG marks an important step toward normalizing Israel’s status at the UN and a setback to those who seek to isolate Israel.

We appreciate the efforts of the Obama Administration in gaining the Jewish State’s membership in WEOG.                        


Consistently ranked as the most influential foreign policy lobbying organization on Capitol Hill, AIPAC is a bipartisan American membership organization that seeks to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel. For more than 50 years, AIPAC has been working with Congress to build a strong, vibrant relationship between the U.S. and Israel. With more than 100,000 members across the United States, AIPAC works throughout the country to improve and strengthen that relationship by supporting U.S.-Israel military, economic, scientific and cultural cooperation.
