AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) is the largest pro-Israel organization in the world. The bipartisan heavy-weight lobbying group meets annually in Washington DC, and typically hosts the biggest names in politics, foreign policy, military and public affairs. Israeli Prime Minister and American Presidential candidates are typically invited to speak during election years, and virtually all appeared this year.
At the close of the annual conference, the 18,000+ attendees ascend Capitol Hill in order to lobby every single Senator and House Representative in US Congress to press a united agenda to support Israel. I had the blessed privilege of attending the 2016 AIPAC Conference and was very pleasantly surprised at the bipartisan, multi-cultural unity when it comes to support of Israel. That support is waning in Congress these days, but still very strong.
Previously, I shared VP Mike Pence’s speech and today I will share a few other presentations from the now-concluded 2020 AIPAC Conference. Enjoy!
