Corrine Brown was one of Congressional Black Caucus members who stompy-footed their way to a boycott of Netanyahu’s historic speech before Congress. Her spokesman said, it was “completely innpropriate”.
So then, it wouldn’t be possible that she could give a review of the speech would it? Much less a “rave review”. Right?
Liberals are shameless, liars and panderers, so Ms. Brown didn’t let a pesky little thing like “not attending” the speech keep her from giving a glowing review!
Bizpac Review: Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a strong supporter and friend of the Jewish nation of Israel, wholeheartedly applauded Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his address today to a joint session of Congress:
“As a longtime supporter of the state of Israel and active Member of the Democratic-Israel-Working-Group Caucus (DIWG), I stand with the Jewish state in its continued quest for peace and prosperity for its people and for the world. Beyond a doubt, Israel is located in a difficult part of the world, surrounded by countries and extremist organizations bent on its destruction. Nations such as Iran, and terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, who are committed to Israel’s destruction, are aided and abetted by nations like Iran, to achieve that goal. As our partner and chief democratic ally in the Middle East, I believe that the United States must continue to do everything possible to support Israel in its quest for self-defense. Certainly, the $3 billion in yearly U.S. foreign assistance to help the state of Israel’s defense is money very well spent.
Israel’s history, based on the incredible resilience and perseverance of its people, is a story of courage and success in the face of seemingly impossible odds. For 67 years now, Israel has stood out as a democratic beacon in a region mired by instability and dictatorial regimes.
Beyond a doubt, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech today encapsulated the importance of the friendship and bond between our two nations. As Americans, we must remain steadfast in our commitment to the security of our loyal ally— in an alliance we have had since President Truman announced America’s recognition of the Jewish state just minutes after its independence was declared in 1948. Beyond a doubt, the friendship between the United States and Israel is founded on common principles – and it is because of those principles that in a bipartisan fashion, both Democrats and Republicans continue to advocate jointly on behalf of the Jewish state, and I reiterate my strong support for the nation of Israel.
In closing, I would like to borrow from the words of Prime Minister Netanyahu: ‘Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years…Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them…May Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute. May we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead…(and) may we face the future with confidence, strength and hope.’”
Pathetic. Truly pathetic.
