Dear Friends, Lisa Krouse
I am writing to you from Washington DC. Where I Marcelo Liberman
came to attend the annual American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference. AIPAC, Judith “Judy” London
considered the most effective lobbying group in
Washington, attracted its largest and most diverse Lora Mallen
crowd in history, over 6200 delegates, including 1200
students. In fact, it was my student son, Jesse, who James “Jim” Myers
challenged me to attend the conference with him.
AIPAC’s sole purpose is to insure that the relationship Roger Peterson
between the USA and Israel remains strong. This year
Vice-President Dick Cheney, House Speaker Nancy Julie Reback
Pelosi, and many other leaders of Congress from both
sides of the aisle addressed the conference, as well as Mildred “Mim” Rivo
all the top Israeli politicians and diplomats.
The real purpose of the event was not only to remind
elected US officials of the strategic importance of the Nancy Silbert
only democracy in the Middle East but to actually go up
to the Hill and lobby over 400 members of the House Imi Silver
and Senate on behalf of three items in the action
agenda. This year the threat of Iran’s nuclear weapons Marcia Spanier
program was on everybody’s mind. HR1400 asks that
tough economic and diplomatic sanctions be imposed
on Iran, as a way to prevent armed conflict. Second Shabbat Morning
Israel is up for one last year of military aid in the
amount of 2.4 billion dollars and third, we asked
Congress to pass a bill that the US government will
