The rumblings have already begun against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s anticipated address to the Congress of the United States, currently scheduled for next month. The protests sound like this:
1) It’s not fair to candidates who are running against Bibi and his party in upcoming Israeli elections to have him speak here at this time.
2) Bibi’s presence here would be divisive.
3) Congressional Democrats from both houses will probably boycott the speech.
4) No head of state has ever been invited to speak before Congress without first securing the blessing of the President.
5) Mr. Netanyahu should confine his speech to a closed meeting of a select group of Congress members.
Given the possibility, or rather probability, that the Prime Minister could make some revelations about what’s really happening in the Middle East, which the American Press Corps en masse, Mr. Obama and his Democrats definitely do not want the American People to hear on network television, I would not be at all surprised to hear even more dire rhetoric from the White House and Department of State in the coming days, such as:
1) Netanyahu’s presence in the United States will pose such an insurmountable security risk that U.S. authorities will not be able to guarantee his safety while he is here.
2) Threats of massive violent protest and riots in Muslim enclaves located within Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado and elsewhere in the United States, due to Netanyahu’s presence, could make it necessary for him to be headed off at the airport and sent back to Israel – in the interest of preventing loss of American lives and destruction of property which would inevitably result from said riots and violent protests.
We shall soon see what Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry have up their sleeves. I could have this all wrong. I’m just sayin’…..
