Israel’s Netanyahu addresses joint meeting of Congress on July 24

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to address a joint meeting of the US Congress on July 24.

Bipartisan congressional figures – including House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (DN.Y.), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – signed an agreement message stating Netanyahu is invited to speak.

‘Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal.’

“I am deeply moved that I have the privilege to represent Israel before both Houses of Congress and to present the truth about our righteous war against those who seek to destroy us to the representatives of the American people and the entire world,” said Netanyahu. noted.

In a statement, Schumer said: “I have clear and deep disagreements with the Prime Minister, which I have expressed both privately and publicly and will continue to do so. But because America’s relationship with Israel is rock-solid and transcends any one person or prime minister, I joined the request to let him speak.”

Left-wing independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has noted that he will not attend Netanyahu’s speech.

“Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal. He should not be invited to address a joint meeting of Congress. I will certainly not be attending,” Sanders said in a statement. “Israel obviously had the right to defend itself against Hamas’ horrific terrorist attack on October 7, but it did not and does not have the right to wage war against the entire Palestinian people.”
