Won't back down

Do you think Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu will decline to speak to Congress in March?
Elie Wiesel thinks he should speak.
Maybe Democrats could learn from Netanyahu instead of shunning him.
Welcoming the prime minster with courtesy and respect as the leader of a democratic ally is the least we should do, but it’s not all we can do. We can also learn from him. Netanyahu has spent many years on the front lines of the war on terror. As a young man, he was fighting terror while Barack Obama was fighting boredom. As an adult, while Obama was community-organizing his way to the presidency, Netanyahu was a participant in the civilizational struggle in which both Israel and the United States, as leaders of the West, are engaged.
