There were 2,000 students who attended the annual AIPAC policy conference in Washington this week. Arutz Sheva spoke to one of them, Ally Michelle from Indiana University.

“For me, my grandma is Israeli so coming to AIPAC is great, because she was a little girl when Israel became a State,” she said. “This is my family and my background and I know that I have to support Israel.”

She added, “It’s great to come here and meet people from all 50 states and even some international delegates. I miss two days of school but I learn way more here than I do sitting in my classes, because this is the real world and this is what’s going on right now.”
