Other highlights of #AIPAC2010! For Allison Hoffman’s dispatches, see here, here, and here.

• AIPAC unveiled a comprehensive campaign to decrease Israel’s isolation, mainly by securing its membership to various international bodies—including NATO. [Forward]

• Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) claims Prime Minister Netanyahu owes him $1,800. Seriously. [Capital J]

• A little-noticed but interesting contention in Secretary of State Clinton’s address: that the new democratization of communication wrought by the Internet means Israel can’t as effectively control its message. [Ben Smith]

• Alan Solow (who Allison Hoffman profiled last week) focused, in his address, on Iran sanctions and international de-legitimization of Israel. [Capital J]

• Peace group CODEPINK took credit for the false press release claiming that AIPAC advocated a full settlement freeze. [CODEPINK]

Erastus CoupeDeVille says:

Good conference in Washington DC… it justifies having the Prime Minister of Israel attend it and then meet/greet/influence members of the US Congress… much in the same way that US Presidents attend America-first conventions in Jerusalem and then meet/greet/influence members of the Knesset.
