‘For the past 2 years, Obama has enabled Iran take over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, & Yemen. P.M. Netanyahu is going to Washington because Obama has left him no choice.’ – Caroline Glick
The Kansas-based Unity Coalition for Israel states that “this one man holds the safety of the entire world in his hands. Everything else is a side issue.” It is thus “fortunate that Congress has an opportunity to hear” him, writes the organization’s president Esther Levens.
The Unity Coalition has requested, via press releases and various announcements, that all 535 members of Congress attend the joint session this Tuesday to hear first-hand Netanyahu’s “perception of the dangers that threaten the very existence of the United States, Israel, and all of Western civilization.”
From California, the Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors (CJHS) association writes: “If the Obama administration strikes a deal that helps Iran acquire nuclear weapons, Israel and America will live under the black cloud of a nuclear threat. At this point, Bibi Netanyahu’s address to Congress is all that stands between us and that threat. We stand unequivocally with him.”
Doris Wise Montrose, President of CJHS, notes that the International Atomic Energy Agency has stated that Iran is “being evasive about its nuclear program and appears to be covering up attempts to develop nuclear weapons. Iran doesn’t even feel the need to conceal the fact that it built a full-scale replica of a U.S. Naval carrier and blew it up during recent war games.”
“And yet,” she continues, “President Obama acts as if the Prime Minister of our erstwhile ally Israel is the problem… [Obama knows that after the speech] he will be forced to counter the Prime Minister’s compelling points and defend his own willingness to cut a deal with Iran.”
“We remember the times when Persia tried to destroy us,” Montrose quotes Netanyahu, “and today in the same Persia there is a ruler who calls for the destruction of the Jewish state, and they plan on doing it with nuclear weapons.” Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, too, “remember when a Jew-hating evil tried to destroy us, and we too believe it is the sacred duty of each American and Israeli citizen to defend our countries against an enemy that seeks to try it again.”
A third organization – Traditional Values Coalition of Washington, D.C. – lists the catastrophic results of the agreement Obama appears to be planning with Iran. It states that worst of all is that the deal will limit the size and scope of Iran’s nuclear program for only 10-15 years – even as Iran continues to develop nuclear weapons on a smaller scale “that is still large enough to arm terrorists and strike at Israel, Europe, and the United States.”
“This is why we must impress upon all of Congress to listen to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next Tuesday when he speaks to a joint session,” according to the group. “This is why the Senate must be prepared to act with new sanctions against Iran.”
As respected analyst Caroline Glick sums up in her latest Jerusalem Post column, “now we are seeing that far from being an opportunist, Netanyahu is a leader of historical dimensions. For the past two years, in the interest of reaching a deal, Obama has enabled Iran to take over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen… Netanyahu is coming to Washington next week because Obama has left him no choice. And all decent people of good will should support him, and those who do not, and those who are silent, should be called out for their treachery and cowardice.”

As a son of Holocaust Survivors, I unequivocally support this CJHS declaration.
