The House of Representatives’ senior ranking Democrat, Nancy Pelosi, said on Wednesday she was concerned that if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the U.S. Congress in March, it may result in negative ramifications for the ongoing nuclear talks with Iran.
The fact that Israel is America’s only ideological ally in the Middle East and that Iran is sworn to the United States’ destruction did not make an appearance in the remarks of the House Minority Leader. “Such a presentation could send the wrong message in terms of giving diplomacy a chance,” Pelosi told reporters outside of a conference of fellow Democratic Party representatives.
Netanyahu will already be in the United States for AIPAC’s annual Washington, D.C. Pro-Israel conference in March. The Israeli PM is set to speak to the entire Congress on March 3.
Pelosi added that it was “not appropriate” that Netanyahu will come to speak only “two weeks before an election.” She did not comment on the fact that high-ranking former Obama administration campaign operatives are currently on the ground in Israel attempting to sabotage Netanyahu’s chances at reelection.
The United States has been engaged in official talks with Iran for over a year. Even as the Iranian regime has “agreed” to certain principles regarding nuclear enrichment minimization, they have been caught time and time again grossly violating their own agreements. It was recently discovered that the regime has built an 89-foot missile which may have the capability to strike the United States. In May, Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei pledged to destroy the United States through “battle and jihad.”
Pelosi shockingly seems to have aligned herself with Iran, which is controlled unilaterally by a dictator who slaughters his own citizens and promulgates Caliphatist terror worldwide, over Israel, the Middle East’s only free country.
