Tell U.S. Congress not to attend Netanyahu’s speech

Roots Action has sent me an email with a link to a petition to sign.

Instead of letting diplomacy work, Netanyahu wants the U.S. to impose harsher sanctions on Iran, all but ensuring that talks collapse and increasing the risk of war.

I am not about to let Netanyahu dictate to us when we should go to war.  His attempt to influence U.S. politics has gone way beyond the acceptable. Congress’s negotiation with a foreign power probably violates a number of U.S. laws – see the Logan Act.

Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

Perhaps the members of Congress want to prove that they know what an impeachable act is.  Maybe they want to try it on for size before seeing if they can accuse the President of other impeachable acts.

What will it take for the majority to recognize that the Republicans have just gone too far?

When will President Obama declare Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. persona non grata and have him recalled to Israel?
