The AIPAC annual policy forum drew 6,000 delegates. Topics to be addressed at the conference, which started Sunday in Washington, include the Iranian nuclear threat, maintaining the isolation of the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority and looking ahead to the 2008 elections. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet presidential candidates. On Tuesday, delegates will lobby on Capitol Hill for tougher measures in dealing with Iran and the Palestinians.
