ABC’s Jonathan Karl reports that the Congress rose to its feet 29 times for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
I will talk with Congressman John Campbell about being in the chamber for the address in hour three today, and will play excerpts of the speech.
Netanyahu rules work again. No teleprompter is necessary when you believe what you say and have history, law and morality on your side. The reception accorded the prime minister was as blunt a repudiation of the president’s anti-Israel positioning as a formal joint resolution. Let’s hope the message got through even the thick wall of self-regard erected around the White House.
