Netanyahu Rocks Congress with 29 Standing Ovations

Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu Speaks to the Joint Session of Congress. He says that Israel would be generous with the size of a Palestinian state, but would not return to the "indefensible" 1967 borders or divide the city of Jerusalem. In case you missed the speech Netanyahu’s Facebook page has a transcript. I’m stealing the headline from Philip Klein, but only because his metaphor is so apt: Given the entire joint session of Congress was whipped into a frenzy of enthusiasm, all that was missing here were glow sticks. If you ever want to understand what the issues in the Middle East are, just listen to this speech. It's the very best speech I ever heard on the issue.
