Washington Times reported on March 17, 2016 that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) will welcome 18,000 guests to its three-day policy conference (‘Come Together’), which begins on March 20 in the nation’s capital.

It has drawn a startling array of high-profile speakers, ready to have their say…

The AIPAC roster includes Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich, along with Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Democratic Whip Rep. Steny H. Hoyer and Sens. Robert Menendez and Lindsey Graham.

A fleet of lawmakers too numerous to name will also appear, along with journalists, strategists, diplomats, clergy, pollsters, student activists, lobbyists, entertainers and assorted luminaries from the military and intelligence communities. The event is, in a word, huge, and described by organizers as “three of the most important days affecting Israel’s future.” And the mission: “To strengthen, protect and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of Israel and the United States.”

Comment: Presently one of the more important threats to Israel’s safety is the policies of Obama. The AIPAC meeting is therefore of especially great importance in 2016. With anti-Israeli sentiments rising in Europe similar events are needed in European countries. This is especially the case in Sweden where the present foreign minister has been banned from visiting Israel due to her vehement anti-Israel stand.
