|House Speaker John Boehner and Prime Mister Benjamin Netanyahu|
That the President and the Prime Minister disagree on policy is no secret. Not any more than it is a secret that Netanyahu and his political rivals in Israel disagree. And he has a lot of them there. But the relationship between the 2 countries has never been stronger – despite that disagreement. There is no argument between the President and the Prime Minister on that.
The reason these 3 Senators say they will not attend? They say it is because this speech undermines the bi-partisanship support of Israel. What fools. It is they who are undermining it by boycotting the speech. If there were 100% attendance it will show bi-partisan support. if they want to support Israel they ought to show up.
