Dinner With Netanyahu

I … Joel Rosenberg in article Dinner With Netanyahu dated March 23, 2010, writes that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a powerful speech at the AIPAC gala dinner Monday night and received scores of standing ovations. The longest and most sustained came when he directly challenged the policy of President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton who seek to divide Jerusalem and stop Israel from building “settlements” in East Jerusalem. Netanyahu stated firmly, “Jerusalem is not a settlement. It is our capital.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) were the evening’s other keynote speakers, and I have to say I was impressed with both

II … Chakham writes in article Following Up On The US Reaction To Israeli Construction, relates that Prime Minister Netanyahu has arrived in the United States and gave a speech before the Conference of AIPAC2010, noting that Jerusalem is the Israeli capital. Netanyahu also met with President Obama Tuesday, March 23rd for about three hours according to some reports

One can  view Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before AIPAC below via AIPAC at YouTube (in 4 parts); and find the text of the speech at the Prime Minister’s website:  “Address by PM Netanyahu at the AIPAC Policy Conference.”

Amb. Bolton also spoke with John Batchelor on March 23rd a bit about the US foreign policy in re: Israel in the radio program’s HOUR 4.  LISTEN TO MP3 (interview begins at 8:12 min).  For further, see AEI:  “Israel and the Crisis with Obama” & “Obama’s Global Failure” by John R. Bolton.  Earlier, Batchelor spoke with  Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal about Israel; the WH meeting bet President and Netanyahu; JERUSALEM construction; PA provocations in Jerusalem; IRAN  LISTEN TO MP3 (interview begins at 17:42 min) … see WSJ, The Global View  “The Netanyahu Diaries: What Israel’s prime minister really thinks” by Bret Stephens.

III …  Jim Arkedis writing in article ProgressiveFix article Biden, Israel, and the Aftermat relates the announcement (of the 1600 housing unit settlement in Jerusalem being approved) turned the trip on its ear — Biden delayed attending a dinner with Netanyahu and issued this uncomfortably harsh statement: ”I condemn the decision by the government of Israel to advance planning for new housing units.”

IV … One can follow Joel Rosenberg on his Weblog Flashtrafficblog,  his mother is Gentile and his father is from a Jewish background – previously worked with several U.S. and Israeli leaders, including Steve Forbes, former Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Natan Sharansky, and former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
