It's official: Bibi speaking to Congress on May 24

Speaker of the House John Boehner has officially invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, May 24.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced that His Excellency Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of the State of Israel, will address a joint meeting of Congress on Tuesday, May 24, 2011:

“It will be an honor to welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu to the Capitol on May 24 as part of his official visit to the United States. America and Israel are the closest of friends and allies, and we look forward to hearing the Prime Minister’s views on how we can continue working together for peace, freedom, and stability.”

NOTE: Benjamin Netanyahu is the ninth and current prime minister of Israel. This will be his second address to a joint meeting of Congress: he first appeared on July 10, 1996. This is the second joint meeting of the 112th Congress: Prime Minister Julia Gillard of Australia appeared on March 9, 2011.
Will Bibi say anything Barack won't like? Stay tuned.

These things usually happen in 'prime time' in the US from what I recall, which means it will be the middle of the night here.

No that would be in the morning in Israel. If he gives the address early in the evening here as is customary.

Whatever he says, I don't think he will come to Washington bearing gifts for Obama.

Are you referring to Obama or to Ehud?

Did you listen to Barak's speech from yesterday about what he expects will be Israel's 2 state plan? Go searching for it and then wait and see what Netanyahu says differently at Bar Ilan II.
