The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, expressed its full support for U.S. President Barack Obama's decisions on Syria.
The committee demanded in a statement, that members of the House of Representatives and Congress should approve a military strike against Syria and give Obama full authorisation to carry out the offense.
AIPAC's announcement was followed by a similar announcement from the Anti-Defamation League who also expressed their full support for Obama. AIPAC, the Anti- Defamation League and the Republican Jewish Coalition are the three largest and most influential Zionist lobbies in the U.S. The pro- Israel groups support a military strike against Syria.
