Netanyahu Has A Forceful Response To Democrats Who Demand He Stand Down.
You have to hand it to the Israeli Prime Minister, not much seems to sway him, or get him down. Despite the President using the New York Times as political weapon, as the US Herald reported Sunday, he appears to be resilient and determined to make himself heard on the Iranian negotiations that are forthcoming.
According to ABC News, Benjamin Netanyahu will be coming to the U.S. to speak before congress next month as planned. This decision was finalized in an election speech in Israel Monday.
"A bad deal with Iran is forming in Munich that will endanger Israel's existence. ... Therefore I am determined to go to Washington and present Israel's position before the members of Congress and the American people."
So, despite all of President Obama and the left's politics, Prime Minister Netanyahu will still be coming to speak to the U.S. Congress. The New York Times story in question used the 'War Of Words' to make it seem like Benjamin Netanyahu did make the White House aware of his plans to visit and speak to congress, what followed was a lot noise and smear against the Israeli Prime Minister.
The New York Times has since edited the story, with no actual apology to be heard from the normally center-left newspaper.
“ An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.“
Prime Minister Netanyahu's own political opponents used the story against him to say that he was damaging U.S.-Israel relations. It House speaker John Boehner who offered the invitation to Mr. Netanyahu to speak before congress. The speech Mr. Netanyahu intends to give before the U.S. Congress, regarding Iranian sanctions, will come just before Israeli 2015 elections.
According to ABC News, the Israeli Prime Minister stated that despite the attacks from his political parties and differences in opinion with President Obama, U.S.-Israel relations remain strong.
