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’s full of crazy libs....so don’t be surprised if he gets some boos. They consider him ‘right wing’ and just love that Livni marxist chick running in opposition to Bibi.

It was a bit surprisinsg to see this heading on the AIPAC page:

‘Obama Praises Historic U.S.-Israel Relationship’

Was wondering if they truly heard Obamas speech a few days ago?

They’re going to push him out of prime time so fewer Americans will see him...

Thank you, GF. I guess we will all be able to see it on CSPAN2 LIVE or via the AIPAC LIVE stream on the net?

WOW. We have a very long wait!

I don't know, you think that Netanyahu would be the person they would push Other people out to get.

I bet OMoslem has something to do with it, he most likely wanted to snub Bibi again, Our Sarah is going to have to do alot of apologizing for that douche when she becomes president.

He’s not my hero, but I have a great deal of respect for the man.

Let me clarify: he’s a hero, but not my hero. I know I am TOTALLY over analyzing this, but there is a major difference in the implied message between “a hero” and “my hero.”

And my clarification here is completely irrelevant to anything else said on this thread, you probably don’t care, and I don’t blame you at all for rolling your eyes at me. I just REALLY wanted to differentiate on the two forms of usage because it popped into my head. And it amused me. Feel free to ignore this post. ;-)

that was my first suspicion; terrible to be so cynical; lol

Netanyahu was scheduled for 8:45-9pm since this morning; something changed. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if Netanyahu takes the stage before 10pm.

There was a great turn around in 2010. Hopefully, it will continue on for the Presidential Election. Look at what just happened in Spain. They just had the biggest political turn around in 30 years. Let’s pray people will wise up and see through the manipulative hold he has on some.

Isn't it sad? Benjamin Netanyahu is now considered the leader of the 'free world' when the U.S. has always supported Israel and the U.S. has always been the leader of the Free World. The events of the last week have disgraced us as a Nation.

Obama was off to his Irish Spring today and nowhere near PM Netanyahu, the warrior. He is always running away to somewhere when the heat is on. Must be Soros' idea.

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.

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!
