Netanyahu Addresses Congress To An Enthusiastic Response

Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress today and gave a speech reiterating his previous remarks to President Obama - and Congress absolutely ate it up.

Warm, folksy and incisive, if was Netanyahu at his best..amazing what some peole can do without a teleprompter.

The Israeli leader was greeted with minutes-long applause as he entered the chamber, and his remarks were greeted by standing ovations no less than 29 times.

Netanyahu told Congress that Israel was the only country that has guaranteed freedom of all faiths in Jerusalem, and that Jerusalem must remain undivided.

He also was quite clear that Israel “will not return to the indefensible borders of 1967”, that the 'Palestinian' refugee problem will be solved outside the borders of Israel, and that Israel must retain a military presence in the Jordan Valley, remarking that in the Middle East, peace depends on the ability to defend oneself.

He also was quite plain that Israel had no intention of negotiating anything with a 'Palestinian' entity that was allied with Hamas.

One of the best lines of the speech: "President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people, and I told you it wasn’t easy for me, and I said… “I will accept a Palestinian state.” It is time for President Abbas to stand before his people and say… “I will accept a Jewish state.”

The heckler, by the way was Rae Abileah, a Left wing loon belonging to President Obama's friends, Code Pink.

President Obama obviously forgot how popular our Israeli ally is with the majority of Americans. And his attempt to undercut and embarrass Bibi Netanyahu turned out to be a miserable failure.

I might sound like a murderous son-of-bitch, but I just wish the Israelis would wipe their enemies off the face of the earth like they did in the good old days. They could call it "Operation Canaan Redux". The worse thing about it is I'd probably gain fifty pounds courtesy of Orville Reddenbacher watching and cheering the carnage.
