At the moment it appears that some members of Congress are angry that Speaker of the House John Boehner took it upon himself to invite Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress.  Usually these types of invitations are left to the discretion of the President of the United States. It is no secret that there are differences of opinion between the White House and the Israeli government. However, the issue at hand has to do with whether or not Iran, a Nation that openly calls for the total destruction of Israel, and ultimately the United States and Western Civilization, shall be allowed to have nuclear weapons.

The present emotional rift between the White House and members of Congress as to who has the right to invite any world leader to address Congress is infantile. This immature political football game distracts and obfuscates the dire issues at stake.  Simply put, Iran is coming closer to having the nuclear capability to destroy Israel, Europe, and the world, as we know it.  It’s even closer than we can imagine.

The Iranian government makes no secret that their agenda is to destroy Israel and kill every Jew in the world.  Iran funds terrorism around the globe to achieve this goal, even though their government denies it. Iran’s ultimate goal is world domination and Sharia law.  With all of Iran’s centrifuges, they already have the capability to hold every nation on our planet hostage.  It’s not a mater of if, but when, the leadership of Iran will push that red button.

It is my opinion that Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israeli Intelligence know what Iran is up to better than anyone else. It is to America’s advantage to listen to what Prime Minister has to say.

The ongoing negotiations between the United States and Iran over Iran’s nuclear program have gotten us nowhere.  Iran clearly has the upper hand, and they continue nuclear development.

Congress needs to be as well informed of Israel’s findings as our President by listening to what Prime Minister Netanyahu has to say. The possibility of nuclear war must be reversed lest we endure the final destruction of all mankind.

The best analogy I can give as to the imminent dangers is asking you this question: Would you allow an emotionally disturbed individual the right to possess a gun?  In this analogy, I refer here to the Iranian governmental leaders, not the decent citizens in Iran who cannot criticize their government for fear of imprisonment and execution.

Our Congress needs to be informed and up to the minute on critical situations that could mean life or death to the United States. Passing laws and resolutions without being apprised of the facts can be disastrous.

To all members of Congress: I urge you not to boycott Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech.  Stop bickering. Your job is to serve the best interests and safety of the American people. It is your sworn duty and responsibility to do so no matter what your personal likes or dislikes may be!
