More than 10,000 people from across the US participated in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's annual conference in Washington on Sunday.

US President Barack Obama is scheduled to give an address at the meeting. He is widely expected to emphasize what binds Israel and the US when he addresses America’s largest pro-Israel lobby, rather than highlight the policies revealing wide conceptual gaps between the two countries contained in his speech last week.
