You can take the opportunity now to register early for the AIPAC Policy Conference 2008 | June 2-4, 2008 • Washington, D.C. with a $399.00 Early Bird Special (Valid until Feb 28, 2008.)
Held in March last year this offers the wildest show in town - last year we had crowd of around 5,000. Many of them were American Jews, of course, but the evangelical Christian community made a really strong showing in the circus tent. For those feeling apocalyptic about the current (and everlasting) turmoil in the Middle East, pastor John Hagee was there to greet them. Of the many prominent speakers at the conference, Hagee got one of the most enthusiastic receptions.
"The sleeping giant of Christian Zionism has awoken!" Hagee proclaimed, taking the microphone at the opening dinner reception on Sunday. The electrified crowd -- most of it Jewish -- roared in support, pounding on the tables. Hagee went on to declare the United Nations a "political brothel" and asserted that Israel must never give up land. He agreed with Israeli writer Dore Gold that granting part of Jerusalem to the Palestinians would be "tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban." And, after rebuking Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he led the crowd in a chant of "Israel lives!" urging them to "shout it from the mountaintops!"

Ladies and gentlemen of AIPAC its a new day in America. The sleeping giant of Christian Zionism has awakened; there are 50 million Christians standing up and applauding the State of Israel."
