The Interfaith Zionist Leadership Summit

May 17-18, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.

Israpundit is assisting in the promotion of this event because we believe in its cause and in this movement. It has a great list of speakers and will prove to be a highlight of the year for anyone attending.

Speakers will include Gary Bauer, Daniel Pipes, Mort Klein, Joseph Farah and presenters from CAMERA and JINSA.

The conference is free but you need to register. And bring a photo ID.

The emphasis is on action
* to assure Israel's survival in the face of Palestinian terrorism and the Quartet's Road Map for imposing an irredentist Arab state in the "West Bank" and Gaza.
* to educate the public on the threat of Palestinian statehood to America's true and enduring national interests.
* to document the responsibility of Palestinian leadership and society - aided and abetted by Saudi Arabia, Iraq, other terrorist states - for originating and sustaining jihad/intifada violence.
* to expose media ignorance and bias in Middle East coverage and virulent Anti-Israel/Anti-Semitic agitation on campus.
* to solidify and chart future strategy for the emerging alliance of Jewish and Christian Zionists.
