Cynthia McKinney's Anti-Israel Campaign

Cynthia McKinney, former U.S. Congresswoman from Georgia and 2008 Green Party presidential candidate, has participated in a variety of anti-Israel campaigns and events in 2009.

During speeches at rallies, conferences and elsewhere, McKinney has accused Israel of committing genocide, apartheid and war crimes, and has repeatedly condemned U.S. support for Israel. She has even accused the pro-Israel lobby of sabotaging her political career.

She has also taken part in multiple organized efforts to bring Westerners to Gaza in order to attract media attention to their anti-Israel agenda (see:
Viva Palestina US & Free Gaza Movement) McKinney has used the attention these campaigns have received to further promote her opposition, and explicit hostility, toward Israel and Zionism.
