LIVE THREAD! PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU AT AIPAC
AIPAC/ also CSPAN2 ^ | May, 23, 2011 | onyx

Posted on 05/23/2011 3:53:37 PM PDT by onyx

At 7:00 p.m. EDT, this photo box will turn into the live feed from the Monday banquets at AIPAC Policy Conference 2011





Monday, May 23, 2011 - 10:00am



While Washington, D.C., is increasingly consumed with bickering between Democrats and Republicans, the U.S.-Israel relationship remains the one issue that transcends the partisan divide. In a display of this bipartisan spirit, more than half of Congress will attend tonight's Gala Banquet, which will fill a room large enough to fit the Washington Monument on its side.



This year, however, for the first time ever, Hall D/E, as massive as it is, cannot fit all delegates and guests for a sit-down dinner. As a result, all student delegates will be seated in the Ballroom Banquet in Ballrooms A, B and C. Each banquet will feature live and simulcast appearances as well as unique programming. The major speakers tonight—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, House Majority Leader John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid—will appear personally in both banquet halls.

Representatives from more than 65 countries—including ambassadors from China, South Africa, Mexico, Turkey and the Netherlands—will be seated at tonight's dinner.

Senators, members of Congress, administration officials, foreign diplomats and other VIPs at the banquets will have their names read during the Roll Call, a lively Policy Conference tradition that has been a crowd favorite for many years. AIPAC National Board members Amy Friedkin and Michael Tuchin will join AIPAC Executive Director Howard Kohr for the Roll Call.

The Gala Banquet will be the end of a full day of Monday programming. The morning kicks off with an address by Reverend Dr. Tony Crisp. After the morning plenary, delegates will head to lobbying workshops, where they will learn from AIPAC's top experts how to make the case for Israel on Capitol Hill tomorrow.

It seems preplanned. Move Over Aipac already has an article about it. Notice the date on the article.

To be fair, he did not say “gay rights,” he said “rights for gays.” In fact, he said “rights for women, rights for gays.”

It may seem a small distinction, but it’s actually important.

In Muslim ruled countries, homosexuals have no rights at all and are often killed. If you take his words in context and by definition, it sounds like he was stating that homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else.

This is a HUGE contrast to “gay rights,” which means changed “rights” based on homosexual preference, and includes “more rights” such as “homosexual marriage.”

It seemed like a calculated play to get the 1 or 2 homosexuals who may hear that and decide to support him without committing himself to extra “rights” for the homosexuals.

“We’ll offer a short form birth certificate...”

Rush offered that suggestion.

A true leader! Said he came to AIPAC to offer his appreciation and plans to deliver a realistic “road to peace” to Congress tomorrow.
