MILLINOCKET, Maine, February 8, 2015 — When Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears before Congress on March 3rd, he won’t be speaking to a packed house.
Several Democrats have decided that the leader of the only Democracy in the Middle East doesn’t warrant their attention.
They are willing to ignore the fact that Israel is the target of all the terrorists in the region and ostensibly the United States considers them an ally in combating terrorism.
Having Netanyahu speak to them concerning the threats looming in the Middle East, including the possibility of a nuclear Iran is apparently not that important to the Democrats.
Nancy Pelosi early on lamely claimed that Democrats have scheduling conflicts on that day. And Nancy herself has somewhat weakly voiced her intention to attend the speech. Will she or won’t she?
Vice President Joe Biden suddenly discovered that he has a trip abroad on that day, although it’s not a stretch to think that Joe didn’t have a clue about it until recently.
A partial list of those planning to skip, boycott or ignore the speech includes G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), James Clyburn (D-S.C.), and Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.).
The Republican Jewish Coalition and the Zionist Organization of America have signaled their intent to publicly condemn any Democrat who doesn’t show up.
