Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has forced Joe Bidens Governments hand.

It takes little political nuisance to analyse the significance to US Israeli lobby, Jewish people in the US to fully realise this government support that will inevitably be considered a failure if democrats boycott Netanyahu's address to Congress

The timing is off while the Gaza War continues. When it is over maybe Netanyahu will no longer be the PM.

While some Democrats are saying they will come out of respect for Israel, a larger and growing faction wants no part of it, creating an extraordinarily charged atmosphere at a gathering that normally amounts to a ceremonial, bipartisan show of support for an American ally.

Good to see the tide is turning. Democrats know that support for this war could cost them the election.

wallace, it would be fortunate for all parties, if a fire alarm was pulled and congress had to evacuate the building to some land far far away.

I see the hand with blood... in this article...

I hear loud cry from the lef*tist and the Muslims that 100s of children have been killed in the war between Israel and Hamas.... lots of crocodile tears ..

BUT THEY ARE HAPPY TO KILL MILLIONS OF BABIES in the mothers womb...... Enjoy killing them... And keep on killing them.... taking out from the womb and piece by peace a living baby and watch it in a steel bowl..... And happily smile at the dead baby.

This is ABORTION.

This is the what the Biden wants to project for his re-election

What a double standard ..

I’d have no interest in listening to the lies of an evil perpetrator of genocide either…

Wow! We actually agree on something

What do you expect from the typical insecure White politician, that stand for nothing and fall for anything, they wonder why their grand children will be under minority rule in the future and you foreigners think they are your salvation, you are for a rude awakening

Circumstances are such that Netanyahu should not be invited to address Congress. His singular approach to resolving the Hamas/Hostage issue, while totally correct from his ex-military point of view, has turned global opinion against Israel and put the U.S. in a difficult position with respect to support. What irks me the most is Netanyahu's seemingly blatant unwillingness to consider the U.S. position first, and secondly his inability to see how Hamas planned all this from the get go. They made it impossible to go after them without effectively waging a war against a defenseless civilian population. He handled the Oct 7, 2023 Hamas attack solely as a Military Leader rather than a Political Leader.

As far as the undying U.S. support for Israel is concerned, one should recognize that there are many Jewish Americans (as well as Israelis) who do not agree with Netanyahu's policy.

Well, let’s see. The Dems are doing a great job at alienating people this voting cycle.

Ukraine deserves billions for its survival, though. They didn't ask for Russia to break all of its treaty obligations.
