Gallipoli was a failure that haunted Churchill as much as supporting the Iraq War haunts many politicians today. Yet he was right about Hitler when others hid from the truth. Churchill, like Netanyahu and unlike Barack Obama, worried more about victory than pride.
Conservatives, long used to the media protecting the Clintons at all costs, are puzzled by the fact that journalists seem to be pouncing on the latest scandal involving Hillary Clinton's offsite email server. As Clinton scandals go, this hardly seems the worst. It seems that federal laws may have been broken--but they may not have been. (The Wall Street Journal concluded, bizarrely, that the private email system "was legal while she served as the nation’s top diplomat.") Why the sudden interest?
Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, sat down with NBC News this week for an exclusive interview. NBC's headline for the interview is: "Iran Foreign Minister: We Believe We Are 'Very Close' to Nuke Deal." But the Times of Israel noted a buried lede--"Zarif: The Netanyahu regime ‘should be annihilated'." While the American editors focused on boosting prospects for President Barack Obama's signature diplomatic initiative, their Israeli counterparts focused on the threat that remains.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned home Wednesday to positive reviews of his speech in Congress the day before. If it had been his intention to use the event to boost his campaign, however, he made little impact, enjoying a modest bump in the polls, at best. In one poll, the speech received rave reviews, with 44% of respondents saying it boosted their opinion of him, versus 12% who said it hurt their image of him. However, his Likud party was still in second place.
It does not matter whether they attended the speech, boycotted the speech, or read the transcript of the speech. Democrats, surprised by how convincing Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on Tuesday turned out to be, have simply decided to lie about it. Netanyahu said "we should give up on any diplomatic path," according to Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA). He failed to provide "viable alternatives," according to President Barack Obama. None of that is true, as the transcript shows.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a special joint session of Congress on Tuesday was so successful that many of his critics conceded that he had defied their expectations. Some, however, took issue with the fact that he invoked
Following his stirring address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will return home, having made his point about the dangers of the Iran deal currently on the table. The question is: what next for Congress? President Barack Obama has vowed to veto any new sanctions--and may have sown enough division in his party to prevent an override. Yet there is another bill in the works that, after Tuesday, Obama may find he cannot refuse.
How successful was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a special joint session of Congress on Tuesday? Judging from the changed reactions of his media critics, almost all of whom praised the speech, it was a complete triumph.
Speaker of the House John Boehner will present Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a bust of Winston Churchill when he arrives to address a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, according to the Speaker's office.
Israeli Prime Minister addresses Congress on Tuesday, March 3. His topic, as per Speaker of the House John Boehner, is to explain "the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.”
