  • That netanyahu thing...

    Speaking apolitically, his speech bothers me from a historical perspective.

    I think there has been good reason why the opposition party has never brought in heads of state to oppose the Executive Branch's foreign policy with speeches on the House floor. Congress isn't the UN.

    It's unfortunate the offer was made. As for the acceptance I'm not surprised at the arrogance.

          I wonder what our Jewish posters think about him declaring himself the King of the Jews. Dianne Feinstein certainly didn't appreciate it.

            The invitation was appalling. The reception was appalling. Sticking it to the President in his own country. Unreal!

              Unreal?
              Really?

              This was the THIRD time Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of Congress.

              The reception by the DEMOCRAT LIBERALS was appalling.

              Sticking it to the President in his own country?
              Well deserved, to the most ANTI-Israel, PRO-Muslim President this country has had since Israel's birth as a nation!

              Appalling?
              Unreal?

              How about that the USA President REFUSED to meet with the Honorable Prime Minister of (supposedly) America's greatest friend in the Middle East?

              How about that the USA Secretary of State made sure he was OUT of the country on the day of the speech?

              THAT is appalling!
              THAT is unreal!!

                  Well, aaronk just insured that this thread will be killed shortly. As for the over-the-top reception by some member of the Congress, it can be explained by the fact that they know they're all being watched, and most members of Congress, especially Republicans contemplating a Presidential run, are wary of displeasing AIPAC, big money donors (eg. Sheldon Adelson) and Evangelical Christians. Rand Paul is being eviscerated by the National Review, the Washington Post, FOX News and talk radio for not being enthusiastic enough with his applause.

                    Yeah, the congress should never clap when a foreign head of state speaks to them. They should only clap when their own president insults and slanders them for an hour.

                    Amazing how every side can see the other side as political and brain dead.

                      Why should Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey or any other Mideast country use their own blood and treasure to police their neighborhood when they can get the idiot Americans to do it for them? Here's an excerpt from Robert Gates' book:
                      • Abdullah, a heavyset man in his eighties with a history of health problems, was very sharp and did not mince words as he smoked one cigarette after another. He wanted a fill-scale military attack on Iranian military targets, not just the nuclear sites. He warned that if we did not attack, the Saudis “must go our own way to protect our interests.” As far as I was concerned he was asking the United States to send its sons and daughters into a war with Iran in order to protect the Saudi position in the Gulf and the region, as if we were mercenaries. He was asking us to shed American blood, but at no time did he suggest that any Saudi blood might be spilled. He went on and on about how the United States was seen as weak by governments in the region. The longer he talked, the angrier I got, and I responded undiplomatically. I told him that absent an Iranian military attack on U.S. forces or our allies, if the president launched another preventive war in the Middle East, he would likely be impeached; that we had our hands full in Iraq; and that the president would use military force only to protect vital American interests.

                        Netanyahu recently admitted to cabinet members that his biggest fear is not that Iran would get nukes but that Iran would honor the nuclear deal.

                        The security cabinet meeting was called after a harsh phone call between Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama over the agreement with Tehran.

                        The two senior Israeli officials, who are familiar with the details of the meeting but asked to remain anonymous, said a good deal of the three-hour meeting was spent on ministers “letting off steam” over the nuclear deal and the way that the U.S. conducted itself in the negotiations with Iran.

                        According to the two senior officials, Netanyahu said during the meeting that he feared that the “Iranians will keep to every letter in the agreement if indeed one is signed at the end of June.”

                        One official said: “Netanyahu said at the meeting that it would be impossible to catch the Iranians cheating simply because they will not break the agreement.”


                        Netanyahu also told the ministers that in 10 to 15 years, when the main clauses of the agreement expire, most of the sanctions will be lifted and the Iranians will show that they met all their obligations. They will then receive a “kashrut certificate” from the international community, which will see Iran as a “normal” country from which there is nothing to fear.

                        Bibi can't exist in an atmosphere of peace and reconciliation, he needs war and conflict every bit as much as a fish needs water.
