“The timing of Prime Minister Netayahu’s speech to Congress is a detriment to furthering a two-state solution, to ensuring honest negotiations with Iran, and is political in timing. Circumventing Congressional protocol is disrespectful to the President of the United States and runs counterproductive to working with the Administration and the American people. That being said, as a new Member of Congress I reluctantly decided to attend out of respect for the Democratic State of Israel and the Israeli people,” said Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11).
