On March 3, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress on the topic of Iran's nuclear program. We cannot think of a more important issue for the United States, Israel and the entire West. And we cannot think of a more important voice on this issue than the leader of our front-line ally, Israel.
But will your Congressmen be there to hear him? Don't be so sure.
To our great disappointment, Vice President Biden and over a dozen members of Congress have already announced that they won't be attending this speech. They've cited concerns about the manner in which Speaker of the House Boehner invited the Prime Minister to Washington. But given the late hour and the high stakes, such excuses could not be more petty.
Your representatives in Washington may or may not agree with Prime Minister Netanyahu. But shame on any member of Congress who presumes to vote on Iran sanctions without even hearing him out.
