Vice President Joe Biden won’t commit to attending Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress next month.

He’s not the only one.

Dozens of House Democrats are privately threatening to skip the March 3 address, according to lawmakers and aides, in what’s become the lowest point of a relationship between the Israeli prime minister and President Barack Obama that’s never been good.

Democrats have had to balance publicly supporting Israel with backing Obama, who’s trying to close a deal with Iran to curb its nuclear programs over vehement opposition from Netanyahu, who has expressed concerns that the U.S. president is being naive. Negotiations are facing a deadline at the end of March for a political framework.

The speech was devised by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer to provide Netanyahu a prominent Washington platform to warn about the dangers of the proposed deal with Iran. But it also appeared to be based on an Israeli perception that Obama was weakened after midterm elections gave control of both houses of Congress to Republicans, and timed to take place just two weeks before Netanyahu faces re-election on March 17 — and footage of American officials applauding him couldn’t hurt his prospects.

I'll bet the farm they don't skip Net.

Yeah, I agree. They don't have the balls. Nutanyahoo will give his little speech - then go home and build more settlements on stolen land.

Democrats need not attend.... This event is only for those with a genuine concern and interest in protecting Israel.

Fuck Israel. It can protect itself. It's an undeclared nuclear power. Cut off the $4 billion in yearly welfare.

I hope Ben uses the term "Muslim Terrorists" and all the other Terrorist names the Democrats will never say in Public, and hopefully 100 Million Americans will hear it.

It's not just Israel. That's the point. He will talk about Iran. He will talk about ISIS. He will talk abotu the threats thsoe two present to the whole world. Netanyahu and Israel live with that reality. Obama seems to play it on TV.

So then we are free to use the term "Christian Terrorists" - right?

Netanyahu Calls For Scrapping UN Gaza War Probe

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday called for scrapping a U.N. commission, which is tasked with investigating potential war crimes committed last summer in Gaza, after the inquiry's chief resigned amid accusations from Israel that he was biased against the country.

Netanyahu said the commission, set up by the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, was an "anti-Israeli body" that had a proven track record of doing nothing about true human rights violations around the world.

Just more Jew whining from Nutanyahoo. He doesn't want his war crimes exposed.

Seems to be a pattern for progressive liberal democrats.

Don't like something, run away from it.

Seems they did the same thing in Wisconsin a few years back.

Yeah I hope they boycott the speech also. About time that America had proof positive of the bigotry of the democrat party.

Imagine that a politician going to another country to give a speech just to booster his election. It's not like he is going to Germany.
