Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
On Sunday morning, March 26, Rwandan President Paul Kagame became the first African president to address the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which also identifies itself as Americas Pro-Israel Lobby. Kagame was also the only foreign head of state to address this years conference besides Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself.

On the same day, a full-page ad for the Champions of Jewish Values Gala in NYC at the end of May appeared in the Washington Post. The event, it said, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, meaning the Israel Defense Forces seizure of Temple Mount -- a holy site to Muslims, Christians, and Jews -- during the 1967 Six Day War. Ron Dermer and Alan Dershowitz will be among the presenters and awards will go to Martin Luther King III, David Friedman, Jose Maria Aznar and others. Paul Kagame will receive the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Prize for Outstanding Friendship with the Jewish People.

I spoke to Robin Philpot, author of Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa, from Tragedy to Useful Imperial Fiction, about the special relationship between Israel and Rwanda.
