Boycotting Netanyahu's speech was shameful
Boycotting Netanyahu's speech was shameful

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came here to give a very important speech to a joint session of Congress upon being invited by the Speaker of the House John Boehner. The boycott by President Barack Obama and about 34 Democrats is a shameful disgrace. Israel is our only friend and supporter in the Middle East, and we need to stand with Mr. Netanyahu and support him and stand with Israel against the rogue state of Iran and their development of nuclear weapons. Any Democrat who boycotted Israel's prime minister should be voted out of office. What a shameful disgrace to snub the only and best friend we have in the Middle East. Al Eisner, Silver Spring
