Emergency Committee for Israel urges Hillary to show up for her friend's speech
The Emergency Committee for Israel has urged putative Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to show up for her friend Binyamin Netanyahu's address
to a joint session of Congress on March 3.
Dear Secretary Clinton,
I understand from an article in Politico
that you'll be in Washington, D.C. on March 3rd. What good luck and
great timing! For, as you may have heard, your friend and Israel's prime
minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is scheduled to speak to Congress that
day. I write, as Chair of the nonpartisan Emergency Committee for
Israel, to urge you to attend the speech.
I imagine that, as a longtime supporter of Israel, you'll want to be
in attendance to show support for the U.S.-Israel relationship. You'll
surely want to show that you have no sympathy for the unfortunate
boycott by some politicians of the Prime Minister's speech, a boycott
that plays into the hands of the enemies of the Jewish state. You'll
certainly want to be there to show solidarity at this historic moment
when Israel, and Jews, are under assault.
I'm sure that, as a former secretary of state, you'd have no problem
getting a ticket to the speech -- but if there's some problem, do let me
know and I'd be happy to put in a word with the Speaker. Please let me
know if we can do anything to help facilitate your attendance at the
speech (the Emergency Committee would, for example, be happy to provide a
car and driver).
I look forward to seeing you in the House gallery on March 3rd along with other staunch friends of Israel.
Chairman, Emergency Committee for Israel
Well it would be one way of putting distance between Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.... Maybe she could even use Biden's seat. Heh.
