  1. Congress to Roll Out Red Carpet for Bibi

    He’s gonna talk, but will they listen? Invited by Republicans to address Congress on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hopes to win American lawmakers’ support for scuttling an Iranian nuclear deal. Israel is aggressively opposed to the Islamic Republic developing nuclear weapons — citing security concerns — and its leaders are concerned that Western resolve for a nuke-free Tehran may be waning. Obama’s staff has urged Netanyahu not to play into partisan politics, and while they can’t stop him from talking, at least 30 Democrats, including Vice President Biden, plan to boycott his address.
