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.

Perhaps Bibi should, as a pre-dinner exercise, have them practice loading into cattle cars as a stark reminder of the insanity of their lock-step support of the Democratic Party...

“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.”

Let’s see how that relationship works.

American Jews love Democrats. Democrats hate Jews and Israel.

American Republicans love Israel. Americans Jews for the most part hate Republicans and everything they stand for. For some of them, this means Israel as well.

It is pretty well reasonable to conclude that American Jews need some serious relationship counseling.

My sense is that a dangerous subsection of American and European Jewish people have become so convinced of their safety and security in Europe and the Western Hemisphere that they no longer see any value in a "Jewish Homeland." Thus, they have decided to cut it loose and let it be devoured by Islam. The rich and powerful are in Beverly Hills and other rich enclaves. No antisemitism to speak of here. Nothing to worry about. They control vast swatches of the American and global economy and, more importantly, the governments. The religious and the patriots can have Israel and the headaches it brings. The folk with the money are tired of the stalemate and, as their nests are very well feathered today, they are pushing Obama to dump Israel. Axelrod. The ballerina, may others see or have no use for the troubled pain in the kiester called Israel.We are witnessing a dumping of that allegedly failed concept by the rich and powerful. Who are the enemies of Israel?

The Obama people are watching closely as Media Matters. Their people are ready to rewrite history. They will be hard at work ready to attack BiBi.

If I am BiBi I am asking huge Israeli Donors to either give to GOP or not giving at all.

Its at 9:30.

They can save the money on counseling... they need to stop putting their liberal politics above all else in their lives.

I wonder if Harry will still have the sling on his arm and the huge black eye. I suppose he could cover up the eye thing with stage makeup, and go a few minutes without the sling.

Anyone hear if he explained the injuries? (i figure “i was hit by a door” was already used this week, so he needs to use something like “I stumbled into cabinet/table” or something similar.)

Harry, keep in mind these people love you, very much. Their votes are certain, so you can be frank with the AIPAC crowd.

No need to worry about Pres. Hopey Changerton’s pro-Pali speeches this week, at the same venue and eslewhere, you know, the throw-Israel-under-the-bus plan. The Jewish Dems are still totally on-board. You are among friends.

I’d guess Harry Reid because he’s the Senate Majority Leader, and Rep. Boehner because he’s the House Speaker. I don’t know why the schedule changed...maybe the original time was in error. I hope it’s nothing more than that.

There is a comparison photo going around which includes this one and one with the marxist in his youth; complete with “fro”, smoking a cigarette and a smirk on that hideous face. The contrast is stark.

I will say though, even with how we feel and what we believe, the marxist is completely disregarding the exchange that took place between he and Netanyahu on Friday.

Obama is making speeches that still call for Israel to go back to the ‘67 borders. And he’s speaking to the world which by and large is anti-semitic.

I don't know, BUT...

There's the story of Churchill being invited to speak at a school where he had applied for admittance when a youth, only to be turned down.

There was great excitement at the prospect of the now famous statesman's oratory.

At the appointed time, after the introductions, he took the podium, and said,

"Never give up. Never give up. Never, never, ever give up."

And sat down.

What if Bibi gets up and says

"I'd like to give a shout out to the President, that is, the next President of the United States -- SARAH PALIN."

And sits down.

Cheers!

We should keep checking back. Bibi probably won’t speak until the dinner actually starts.There will be ‘warm up’ acts first.

Hopefully the cable news stations will pick it up when he starts.

Now besides what appears to be a third (?) time change, they're saying that Netanyahu isn't speaking at all? If David Victor introduces him at 10:01 and Netanyahu departs the stage at 10:04, he can't be speaking, can he? How confusing!!

I guess I'll just keep it tuned to CSPAN-2 and see what happens.

Churchill, huh?

I recently took an interest in Churchill. I’m not sure why. I downloaded an e-book of some of his speeches. It’s titled “Liberalism and the Social Problem.” I anticipated it to address liberal/leftist/progressive ideology and how to deal with those problems.

Unfortunately, the introduction written by the editor of the book bothers me greatly. It describes Churchill as a raging liberal. It makes him sound like he’d be a major player in the progressive war on reality we find ourselves in today. At least, that’s how the intro read to me.

I’m still going to read the whole thing. I figure I can let Churchill speak for himself.
