Several groups of rabbis and Jewish religious leaders are planning to protest Donald Trump's speech to a major pro-Israel conference in Washington on Monday, accusing the presidential candidate of encouraging hatred.

Trump is scheduled to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference Monday night, and several groups are organizing boycotts of the speech.

"This is not about policies, this is not about parties, this is about one particular person, Donald Trump, who has encouraged and incited violence at his campaign rallies," said Paskin, a rabbi in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. "We are against the hatred, the incitement of hatred, the ugliness that has engulfed this political season."

Despite tough talk, Israel must adapt to Iran deal

Netanyahu frequently lashed out at the terms being negotiated, saying “it will give them a definite pathway to nuclear bombs — not a bomb, but nuclear bombs.”

He angered US President Barack Obama in March when he appeared before the US Congress to denounce the potential deal.

On Tuesday, he called it “a historic mistake for the world” and again hinted at military force.
