    A reader forwards over an email from AIPAC President Lee Rosenberg to delegates to the organization's annual policy conference, which will feature President Obama's and Prime Minister Netanyahu's coming speeches to the organization.

    It's titled "Welcoming Guests Into our Home" and I don't think anyone over there is worried the crowd will heckle Bibi:

    The goal of the conference, as always, is to have every speaker, honored guest, member of Congress, Senator, and administration official who joins us feel that we have done everything we can to extend our hand in friendship.
    They must walk away from the conference knowing that we look forward to working together, with them, to make America and Israel stronger.
    Each speech and appearance at the conference is an important opportunity for us to accomplish that critical goal.

    We have always had the perspective that these speakers and guests have been invited into our home and we will treat them with the warmth, deference, respect, and appreciation that anyone would be accorded as such.

    Therefore, how we conduct ourselves during the conference, individually and collectively, is a matter of great importance. Because we know that you–Democrats, Republicans, and Independents–come to this conference with one overriding concern–a stronger U.S.-Israel alliance–we ask that you act and react to every speech, address, and briefing, that will be offered as part of the conference program in only the most positive manner

    Well, for starters, it's bad manners to boo the president even if you don't agree with him, however, Obama's thin skin might take it personally if they did.
