The excitement is surely building. Only a week to go until the annual AIPAC Policy conference when several US elected officials and associated shills will remind the world who they really work for.
Even Tel Aviv Jane Harman is scheduled to give opening remarks and to discuss "an insider's look at the Middle East," if she is not deemed too radioactive.
Over 300 members of Congress reportedly attended in 2008 but the guest list for this year has been hidden at the organizer's request. I suppose that's to keep constituents from publicly questioning their representatives about where their loyalties lie and ruining a good time.
A big private conversation piece this year will most likely be whether the AIPAC's own spies, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, both former lobbyists, will finally get their day in court or the charges be dismissed in the name of 'national security.'
Other whispered topics may include whether or when to bomb Iran and how to derail a 'one-state' or 'two-state' solution for the Palestinians.
A gala kosher banquet is scheduled where Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL), Republican Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) join hundreds of their congressional colleagues, foreign dignitaries and activists from across the country in celebrating the U.S.-Israel alliance. Other 'notable' speakers at the conference will include Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, James Woolsey, former CIA director and Robert Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Maj. Gen. Ido Nechustan, commander of the Israeli Air Force, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and of course Senator John Kerry (D-MA), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
This list of 'dignitary' speakers show that being bought and blackmailed by Israel is truly a bi-partisan effort. The list of Pro-Israel PAC contributions to congressional candidates is extensive, a 'leave no congressperson behind' money trail.
A Shabbaton is also scheduled, including both Jews and Shabbat goys. Only $150 per person. Tax deductible.
The last but not least thing on the agenda is Lobbying (At the Convention Center and on Capitol Hill). The untold billions given to Israel each year must be reinforced.
No word of any protests against the AIPAC crowd this year. I wonder why Glenn Beck and Hannity haven't organized anything? I thought eliminating wasteful spending was what they were all about.
NSA wiretapping of the event is said to be optional, but all is fair in love, war and Israeli control of Congress.
Treason Fest™..... a uniquely American affair.
