Since early Sunday morning, a long line has curled around the largest convention center in Washington D.C.

This year’s AIPAC (American Israel Political Action Committee) Policy Conference is the biggest of all time.

More than 13,000 people showed up at the opening event of the conference, where Israeli President Shimon Peres and U.S. President Barack Obama are set to deliver speeches.

It is no wonder AIPAC is the third largest lobby in the United States. Thousands of people from all across the U.S. – most, but not all of them Jews – come to take part in the annual conference.

Jews were not the only ones to make it to Washington this year. Among the crowd are Christians, African-Americans and Latinos, as well.

The convention center’s main hall is decorated with the American stars and stripes, alongside the Israeli flag’s blue and white.

Even the pyrotechnics, the lighting and video streaming met the expectations of conference participants.This is the kind of event can only be found in the U.S.

On this page you will find live streaming, blogging and Tweeting of the event….READ MORE
