Presidential candidate Ted Cruz began his address to the AIPAC conference in Washington D.C. with a timely Purim analogy, with the Jewish festival celebrating the Jews' escape from the jaws of extinction centuries ago set to begin on Wednesday evening.

"When we come together, we can defeat tyrants. Today we are reliving history," Cruz said, linking America's fate to Israel's.
