    The obvious answer is because Netanyahu is the beggar in this relationship and has FAR more to lose if the superpower that is the U.S. abandons Bibi and/or the tiny nation of Israel than the reverse. And it's Obama and the WH diplomatic personnel who actually conduct U.S. foreign policy - not Boehner.
    Giving a speech equals conducting policy? Far out, dude, what are you smoking?

    It's called rules of Protocol. The PM's visit to the US congress is a rebuke to the President of the US and is attempting to undermine the US foreign policy which the Israeli leader doesn't like. It is a serious breach of protocol and John Boehner knows this along with the Israel PM who thinks he's safe because there is a barrier between the Republican Party and the Democrats headed by Obama.

    Below is an article highlighting this breach of protocol by Boehner and Netanyahu. The Israeli leader knew full well what he was doing, but his actions said "screw Obama."

    Benjamin Netanyahu addressing Congress: His willingness to play politics with U.S.-Israeli relations is revolting and dangerous.

    Ask him, I'm sure he'd answer.

    But there's clearly no equivalency between Obama's July 2008 visit and this unsanctioned and politically motivated visit.

    I think it's fine.


    I like it that Israel bombs and kills the Palestinians and Arabs. Frankly they're not bombing enough. The next GOP president needs to pick up the phone after 20 minutes of being president and tell Netanyahu to use every non-nuclear missile in their inventory and that we'll restock them as they go.

    so Obama going to Israel was not "politically motivated"? but bibi coming over the possibility of a radical fanatical regime that is sworn to Israel dustruction is " Unsanctioned and politcally motivated"...

    do you know how and when the election in Israel was even scheduled?..

    interesting on its own



    perhaps even more interesting.



    When looking at these two in concert,
    Are we finally seeing a shift in the general populace with respect to our policies with Israel?


    Still ashamed that Congress gave into Netanyahu's cheap election ploy.
    This invite if for political divisive reasons, but no, there should not be an end to change the policies towards Israel too radically.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!
