    But this isn't the thread for that.

    His speech? His right to speak, yes. Even the White House said he has the right to speak to congress. No one is saying otherwise. Some Democrats have cancelled already, some will i suspect in the future. But I think the majority of Dems will go to the speech. But do they support what he is going to say will be the key question...

    And why would the Jewish community be against the leader of Israel speaking to Congress? That's absurd.
    1.)Not every Jewish American has to love Netnayhu. They are a Democracy afterall with several political parties with several political leanings. Not every Jewish American is a diehard zionist or even pro zionist like Netanyahu is
    2.) Look at polling data and compare that to Netanyahu and his positions.. Hell the biggest reason he is coming here is to throw hawkish rhetoric around about Iran and to try to undermine the Obama administrations current nuclear talks, yet 84% of American Jews are against that position... Hell Netnayhu
    -"What is striking is how dissimilar the mainstream of Jewish Americans is to the ruling Likud Party in Israel, headed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu..... 31% of Jewish Americans in this poll said they did not feel attached to Israel. Another 39% are only “somewhat” attached. The strong Israel nationalists are only about 30%"
    On how American Jews are Mostly the Opposite of Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu | Informed Comment
    -"The survey found that 84 percent of American Jews would favor either strongly or somewhat a deal with Iran that would alleviate tough sanctions on the Iranian economy in exchange for Iran’s agreement to limit its nuclear program to civilian purposes and accept inspectors at its nuclear facilities."

    -Hell this campaign is supposed to be neck in neck...
    3.)From the link itself
    -"Sideman said he was told about the criticism by Jewish and non-Jewish activists who care about Israel and keep in touch with the consulate. “The speech is seen by them as sticking a finger in the eye of the president and the administration,” he wrote. He said the primary supporters of Netanyahu’s speech are groups identified with the most conservative side of the U.S. political map, like the Republican Jewish Coalition, the Zionist Organization of America and Christian evangelical leaders. “It is our impression that these people’s support for the speech stems from their identification with, and admiration for, a move to defy and humiliate President Obama, more than from the importance they attribute to the Iranian issue, which should be the center of the speech,” he wrote."
