Pro-Israel groups mix Iran into Syria debate

On Tuesday, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the lobby's most powerful group, came out strongly in support of the authorization, as did the Conference of Presidents of American Jewish Organizations and the Anti-Defamation League.
They were followed by, among others, the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), a group dominated by strongly anti-Obama wealthy donors who have provided millions of dollars to Republican campaigns and are closely associated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud Party.
