The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is a powerful pro-Israel lobby in the US.

AIPAC labels itself bipartisan but has also come under criticism by many who feel it is too closely aligned with the Republican Party in the US and the Likud Party in Israel.

It is also often contrasted with J Street, another pro-Israel organization in the US often seen as being more closely aligned with the American and Israeli Left.

In late 2021, AIPAC announced it would begin fundraising efforts and endorsements for certain political candidates in the US.
