AIPAC 2009: The Movie [VIDEO]


by JTA

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Roughly half of Congress, dozens of foreign ambassadors, and the president and prime minister of Israel were in attendance at the 2009 AIPAC policy conference here earlier this week.

The major annual gathering of the American pro-Israel community, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference proved to be a showcase for fervent declarations of opposition to the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran and for Israel’s quest for peace and security—though both Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) had some challenging words for the gathering about Israeli settlement construction.

JTA’s team was on the ground throughout the conference, filing several video dispatches (see Biden speech, Bibi analysis, and liberal Israel support), live blogging of major speeches (Biden, Kerry and Bibi), and even some words of advice for Vice President Joe Biden, in addition to our news and analysis

For a quick re-cap of the entire event, check out the video at left.
