Netanyahu Speech Before Congress On Iran: Fist Pumps From The Midwest
March 4, 2015 9 Comments
My, and many of yours, as well, old friend, Cultural Limits wrote today in the DC Gazette a Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of the US Congress. Her article is linked here, and I recommend that you read it. But one paragraph really struck home with me:
For Americans starved for forceful leadership without excuses, Mr. Netanyahu’s address was a breath of fresh air. It is very obvious that this man loves this country and respects the system it represents even if he is the leader of a different nation. His presence was without apology – and without constant references to his own achievements real or imagined.
I doubt that I need to say that I couldn’t agree any more with her. This afternoon Daniel Hannan. MEP Tweeted this, which you can see I retweeted.
It is rather refreshing to see a man address Congress who has, and likely will again put his life on the line to do “the harder right instead of the easier wrong”, isn’t it?
Here’s Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel to the United States Congress yesterday.
And just a quick note, Netanyahu thanked Congress for our help with the Iron Dome system that saved so many Israelis last summer. If you didn’t know the Israeli Iron Dome system is a spin-off of the much maligned Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI-Star Wars) that so many ridiculed President Reagan about.
