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 tonightIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, House Majority Leader John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reidwill appear personally in both banquet halls.
Representatives from more than 65 countriesincluding ambassadors from China, South Africa, Mexico, Turkey and the Netherlandswill 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.
That’s him WHEN he was a young man defending Israel. Now he’s an older man defending Israel... same heart, same courage.
Extremely easy on the eyes isn’t he??
Is anyone listening to this? The AIPAC leader is saying not to vote for a leader based only on their US-Israel policy. And Israel cannot be a wedge in the world.
He was practially giving Zero all the credit yesterday for killing bin Laden. He’s from Chicago, so that tells a lot.

Proof the universe is not fair...that Bibi Netanyahu could be one of the most badass commandos the IDF ever produced *and* look that good doing it. And I’m a happily married guy saying this!
(My wife saw the picture, looked at me, and said, “dear, I love you, but if I could time travel...”)
My dearest (and I do mean that sincerely) on-line friend, please post the pictures of Netanyahu and Palin that you have in your wonderful collection. (in the mean-time)
