Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) attacked the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on social media Sunday, accusing the organization of "bigotry."

Sanders wrote on Twitter, "The Israeli people have the right to live in peace and security. So do the Palestinian people. I remain concerned about the platform AIPAC provides for leaders who express bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights. For that reason I will not attend their conference."

AIPAC responded to the Democrat presidential candidate Sunday evening with a statement on Twitter that was captioned, "Senator Sanders has never attended our conference and that is evident from his outrageous comment."
