But the choice our Democrat friends must make is more fundamental and important than that (much to the chagrin of President Obama): attendance at Bibi’s speech is about Congress’s response to the threats facing America, with a President who refuses to acknowledge those threats. Attending Bibi’s speech declares that the War against Terror in which we partner with Israel is non-partisan. It is, however, in sharp contrast with a President whose world view is marred by an ideology of capitulation, fear and weakness. Congress need not, and must not, stand with a lame duck President who continues to hurt US foreign policy and world stability. And Bibi’s courageous speech is the perfect venue to stand with our allies who see the global conflict as it truly is, and not as President Obama wants it to be: a conflict of good versus evil, of freedom versus an oppressive, fundamentalist Islamist movement hell-bent on world domination.
And the P5+1 agreeing to a plan which allows Iran to continue enriching uranium – a major step in building nuclear weapons – would provide our Islamist enemies with the nuclear weapons exporter they need to take their jihad to a whole new level.
#GiveTheSpeech, Bibi. The world needs to hear what you have to say.
