The Washington Report On Middle East Affairs And The Institute For Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep)


Between the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Christians United for Israel (CUFI) conferences in Washington, DC, the 2020 annual conference about the elections, free speech, Israel, the Israel lobby and Palestine will be held on Friday, May 29, 2020 at the National Press Club in the nation’s capital. There will also be a gala dinner at the Press Club on Thursday, May 28.

This educational event is open to the public and will examine the strategies, tactics and policies of Israel and its U.S. lobby.
