Why am I going to Washington? Because, as Prime minister of Israel, it’s my obligation to do everything in my power to prevent the conclusion of a bad deal that could threaten the survival of the State of Israel.
The current proposal to Iran would endanger Israel. It would enable Iran to build its first nuclear device within an unacceptably short time. And it would allow Iran to build an industrial capability to enrich uranium that could provide the fuel for many bombs in the coming years.
A regime that openly calls for Israel’s destruction would thus have finally the means to realize its genocidal aims.
Now mind you, I’m not opposed to any deal with Iran. I’m opposed to a bad deal with Iran. And I believe this is a very bad deal. I’m certainly not opposed to negotiations. On the contrary: No country has a greater stake in the peaceful resolution of the Iranian nuclear question than does Israel.
But the current proposal won’t solve the problem. It will perpetuate and aggravate the problem. It would provide a path for Iran to become a nuclear power. And so it’s very important that I speak about this in Washington.
Why am I going to Congress? Because Israel has been offered the chance to make its case on this crucial issue before the world’s most important parliament. (And, Netanyahu received a bi-partisan invitation to speak to the US Congress! Is it better that he offends Israel-supporting representatives of American people, Congress, or one Islamic-apologist, the worst president of the United States, who is on his way out?)
Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has expressed her support for the address despite opposition from the White House. She declared that the US-Israel relationship "is greater than any one person," in a clear swipe at President Barack Obama. "Let us not forget Iran has said that they want to annihilate Israel from the face of the earth, and they have also called the United States the 'Great Satan'," she added, imploring Congressmen "on both sides of the isle" to listen to the Israeli PM and work together to "protect the world" from Iran.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
Just before Netanyahu’s speech at the US Congress, Al Jazeera unleased an anti-Israel ‘smoke screen’, most likely with the help of Obama administration, to discredit his position on the Iranian nuclear program. The Mossad cable said that the Islamic Republic's scientists were working to close gaps in areas of enrichment uranium (at the time, Iran had 100 kilos of 20% grade uranium - higher than is needed for nuclear reactors). Such activities, although legitimate, "will reduce the time required to produce weapons from the time the instruction is actually given". No contradiction at all - Just anti-Israel propaganda!

Brucellosis spreading as PA fails to vaccinate sheep. Brucellosis, an infectious disease that spreads from animals to humans, is on the rise because of the failure of Mahmoud Abbas’ PA to provide vaccines against the disease. More than 400 PA Arabs were infected by the disease in 2014. (Although the PA rulers are good, as Arafat before them, at sending money to Swiss banks)

The Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) were found liable Monday, in a groundbreaking case against the territory for its role in inciting, supporting, planning and executing the seven terror attacks which killed American citizens between 2000 and 2004. $218.5 million dollars was awarded to the victims in the case - a figure that will be tripled to $655.5 million according to the anti-terrorism laws under which the case was brought. "If the PA and PLO have the funds to pay the families of the suicide bombers each month, then they have the money to pay these victims of Palestinian terrorism." (PA must pay for all Jewish victims and compensate financial losses Israel has had due to Arab terrorism!)
The BBC will not be taking any action against a senior correspondent, Tim Wilcox, accused of anti-Semitism during his coverage of a march in Paris following attacks by Muslim extremists which killed 17 people, including four at a kosher supermarket. He apparently equated anti-Semitism and even murder of innocent French Jews by terrorists to Israel's battle against Islamist terrorism.
PA has no Interest in Unity or Rule of Law
Mahmoud Abbas rejected an international effort to impose his government’s rule on the Gaza Strip. Western governments sought to advance a United Nations Security Council resolution that would confer upon the Ramallah administration a mandate to rule Gaza, which is currently in the hands of Abbas’ arch rival, Hamas.
