If we can’t get a real man of our own to address Congress and we have to import one from Israel, so be it.
Our Commander In Chief addressed Congress a short time ago with his State of the Disunion Address and didn’t say a darn thing. Netanyahu is gonna have some stuff to say.
Our times are very similar to the time leading up to our entry into World War II. Hitler was beginning his conquest for world domination and America was still weary from World War I and we really didn’t wanna get involved. You all know how that turned out as we just marked the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust the other day. But hey, it’s Super Bowl Lord’s Day on Sunday and ain’t nobody got time for all this nonsense, right?
The consequences now are far greater. Israel is kinda like John the Baptist – a lone voice saying what needs to be said and we really need to pay attention.
Suicidal madmen in Iran are trying to get their hands on the tools they need to hold the entire world hostage and they’re on the verge of having them.
I love Benjamin Netanyahu – I have for years. The man is brilliant and he understands how high the stakes are here. I would STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to watch his address before Congress and then, if you feel so inclined, write your representatives in Congress to tell ’em how you feel.
Below is a good, fairly short piece from the New York Times on this matter.

Administration Official Criticizes Israeli Ambassador Over Netanyahu Visit
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration, after days of mounting tension, signaled on Wednesday how angry it is with Israel that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted Republican leaders’ invitation to address Congress on Iran without consulting the White House.
The outrage the episode has incited within President Obama’s inner circle became clear in unusually sharp criticism by a senior administration official who said that the Israeli ambassador, Ron Dermer, who helped orchestrate the invitation, had repeatedly placed Mr. Netanyahu’s political fortunes above the relationship between Israel and the United States.
