It's no secret that today's Dim's are no friend to Israel, they are much more aligned with the Palestinian's than they are with the Israeli's.
Dim's of the past would be embarrassed by today's Dimocrat Party.

58 members of Congress skipped Netanyahu's speech
Washington (CNN)Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday further strained an already tense relationship with President Barack Obama.

And a number of top Democrats — including Vice President Joe Biden, whose job description includes the title President of the Senate — didn't attend.

READ: Netanyahu: Deal will pave way to Iranian nuclear bomb

Netanyahu used the Tuesday speech to frame Iran as a major terrorist threat to the U.S and Israel, framing it in the same vein as ISIS and North Korea. And he argued that the deal currently in the works to prevent the nation from gaining nuclear weapons would in fact "guarantee" that it secures them — "lots of them."

The expected substance of the speech, coupled with the fact that the White House was not alerted to the invite ahead of time, had drawn sharp criticism from the administration, and Democrats crying foul. National Security Adviser Susan Rice last week said Netanyahu's decision to speak was "destructive to the fabric of the relationship" between Israel and the U.S.

At least 50 Democratic House members and eight senators who caucus with the Democrats said in recent weeks they wouldn't attend the speech, many in protest to a move that they say is an affront to the president.

Any American with common sense would flee the Democratic Party. No wonder they need illegals to fill their voting rolls.

Isnt giving them 3 billion a year enough of a thank you?
Yes, but it was very disrespectful to boycott another leader. Today's Dims.
I think 3 billion should cover it. And if it doesnt he can always, yanno...Like stop looking for handouts
Yes repubs hate handouts to US citizens but love welfare for Israel. What traitors.
So your taking up the R Dean flag,posting nonsense?
This is grown up stuff,you should bow out while you only look 12 years old,and not 5,but then you are following the childish behavior of the Dems that skipped this speech.
