Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress on Tuesday regarding the dangers of nuclear talks with Iran, but more than 50 Democrats in Congress have decided to boycott his speech.

The number of Democratic members of Congress who announced they would be skipping the speech continued to grow as Tuesday approached, with a running count by the Hill putting the number at 55.

A majority of those boycotting Netanyahu’s speech, including six of the seven senators who will not be attending, have received endorsements from radical anti-Israel group J Street, which has launched an aggressive media campaign against the speech.

J Street sent a letter to members of Congress calling for the speech to be postponed until after Israel’s elections. It also purchased a full-page newspaper ad in the New York Times.

Many of the members who are part of the speech boycott have received support from J Street.

Nearly all the senators boycotting the speech—including Tim Kaine, Brian Schatz, Al Franken, Bernie Sanders, Martin Heinrich, and Sheldon Whitehouse—have received endorsements from J Street. A large number of House members who are part of the boycott are J Street-endorsed as well.

The Anti-Defamation League has called J Street’s fight against Netanyahu’s speech “inflammatory and repugnant.”

A full list of congressmen not attending the speech can be found below.

The only thing repugnant here is republicans treating our alliance with Israel as unconditional and allowing a foreign head of state to lecture us about our foreign policy in our own congress. Asshole wants us to fight the war he wants to start, fuck him.

Tell you what staph. You contact Israel and tell them to give up those billions of dollars we give them. And in exchange, the Jews get to tell us to fuck off.

But don't be taking our money then bitching that they get criticized for doing something stupid.

This little fiasco is going to hurt Israel with the majority of Americans. We have a Congressional approval rating of what 14%. And Boner wants to piss off more Americans by doing this shit. For what? What do the Repubs think they have to gain doing this? Make Obama look bad? You idiots have tried that over and over. How's it working out for ya?

The Shame is on the Republicans who are bypassing US foreign policy to hear a leader who is advocating that we get into another war

Just politics as usual, nothing more. All politicians engage in party politics at one time or another, no difference. Besides, there's no sense in forcing anyone to attend something they are against or see as wrong. Everyone has an opinion, an independent mind, and can do what they feel is right and best at the time. This includes all politicians, not just Democrats. Professional politicians do as professional politicians do, and that means that not everyone is going to agree with them 100% of the time. It's all politics, political show, and playing up to the media. Remember, politicians are doing what they can to have ammunition for the election season that's right around the corner.

Yes, they can basically do as they wish. "The Washington Brotherhood" is an entity unto itself, answerable to no one except itself.

Yeah how dare we have a foreign leader advocating war. Shameful, I tell you!
Who invited him?
Deflection.
Congress has hosted numerous foreign leaders both at its invitation and at the president's.
Again, what are Democrats so afraid of hearing that they wont listen? Why is Obama being so small minded here?

Why Obama So Dislikes Netanyahu

by Dennis Prager March 3, 2015 12:00 AM Those who do not confront evil resent those who do. There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

But there is another question: Why? And the answer is due to an important rule of life that too few people are aware of: Those who do not confront evil resent those who do. Take the case at hand.

The prime minister of Israel is at the forefront of the greatest battle against evil in our time — the battle against violent Muslims. No country other than Israel is threatened with extinction, and it is Iran and the many Islamic terror organizations that pose that threat. It only makes sense, then, that no other country feels the need to warn the world about Iran and Islamic terror as much as does Israel.

That’s why when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to the United Nations about the threat Iran poses to his country’s survival and about the metastasizing cancer of Islamist violence, he, unfortunately, stands alone. Virtually everyone listening knows he is telling the truth. And most dislike him for it. Appeasers hate those who confront evil.

Given that this president is the least likely of any president in American history to confront evil — or even identify it — while Benjamin Netanyahu is particularly vocal and eloquent about both identifying and confronting evil, it is inevitable that the former will resent the latter. The negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program are today’s quintessential example.

Those who will not confront a tyranny engaged in terror from Argentina to the Middle East, and which is committed to annihilating another country, will deeply resent Israel and its leader. For those who doubt the truth of this Rule of Life, there are plenty of other examples.

Take the Cold War. Those who lived through it will recall that those who refused to confront Communism vilified those who did. Indeed, they vilified anyone who merely labeled Communism evil. When President Ronald Reagan declared the Soviet Union an “evil empire,” he was excoriated by those who refused to do so. Yet, if the words “evil” and “empire” have any meaning, they perfectly applied to the Soviet Union. But to those who opposed Reagan, these words could not be applied to the Soviet Union. New York Times columnists lambasted the president for using such

Israel's weakness is very apparent if they can't carry out an air strike on Iranian nuclear facilities like they did to Iraq...
