    Hiighly Inappropriate

    It is hiohly inappropriate for the US congress to invite a foreigh politician to speak, just days before an election when this politician is running for office. It was inappropriate when Clinton campaigned for Peres against Netanyahu, and it is inappropriate for the Congress to campaign for Netanyahu against his opponents.

    say Tehillim for Binyomin ben Tzila

    According to wikipedia his mother’s name was Tzila, I think we should say Tehillim that Hashem should give him hatzlocha rabba in his speech.

    Two points: 1. Currently, in Israel there are a significant amount of members of Obama’s campaign team who are openly, actively working to bolster the labor party in the current election. There is no shame amongst the current white house administration. While they are over their openly campaigning, in the name of the White House against Bibi, the congress is not campaigning for Bibi, rather showing support to moral ideology. 2. This is a Chabad website. Chassidus teaches us to probe beneath the surface. It is quite shallow to think that Bibi’s visit is solely for political purposes. Unfortunately, this… Read more »

    And it was highly inappropriate for Esther to enter King Achashveirosh’s royal chambers uninvited, but for over 2500 years Jews have CELEBRATED this because through this Haman was exposed and we survived his “Final Solution.” WHO CARES ABOUT THIS POLITICAL POSTURING??? WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ISRAEL’S SURVIVAL FROM THE HAMAN OF OUR TIMES!! (And don’t think Iran doesn’t have you and me and every Jew in its cross-hairs, too).

    We must stand together with our brothers and sisters in Israel, not buy into this political nonsense which misses the point!

    Anything that may help save and protect the nation of Israel is not only highly appropriate, but it is mandatory to be done. Preservation of Jewish lives comes before any other concerns.
    Also, please try to spell correctly. It will make it easier for us, as readers, to try and follow your misguided thought process.

    I think there are different types of leadership: rabbinic leadership and lay leadership. Obviously, he’s not rabbinic, but there are elements of clear lay leadership. From the world’s point of view, he is a speaker for the Jewish people.

    I don’t believe that Bibi has or has ever had any intention of bombing Iran. He isn’t 1/100000th of the man that Menachem Begin was.

    There is a game being played here, and it’s called good-cop, bad-cop. Bibi is playing the bad cop, and Obama the good cop. They are hoping that this will persuade Iran to cease their nuclear program.
