On the Eve of Purim, Benjamin Netanyahu spoke before a Joint Session of Congress today [Mar. 3, 2015]. He received about 40 Standing Ovations during his 40-minute speech. Clearly not everyone stood and I saw some who would not even clap. Afterward many of these folks took the opportunity to decry just about everything he said.
What did he say? Iran [Ancient Persia] has a 35 year history of bombing things and killing people, around the world. Much of what they have done has been pointed at The West: Israel, Germany, the U.S., France, Great Britain, etc.
He pointed out that the leader of Iran tweeted that they were going to kill Americans and destroy our country. He pointed out that Hezbollah [Palestinians], Syrian President Assad and the Revolutionary Guard [Golan Heights] are ALL supported and armed by Iran….intent on destroying Israel and any non-fundamentalist muslim country in the region.
He also pointed out that Iran is on the verge of having a nuclear capability. A situation that threatens not only the Region (including Arab nations) but the entire world!
Progressive, Isolationist, ‘Lead-From-Behind’ Democrats? Bibi was fear-mongering. “We know all this and we have it under control!”
No one alive and paying attention believes this. The News shouts in our ears every day: Iran Is Dangerous! Iran Is Fueling Terror Around The World! Iran Is Determined To Dominate Her Neighbors — Friends and Enemies, Alike!

Shoe-bombers, underwear bombers and who knows how many others have sought to wreak havoc on the U.S. and Western Nations in the name of Allah, with Iran in the background.
But we can trust Iran at the Bargaining Table, to do the right thing?
