Arkansas delegation praises Netanyahu address
WASHINGTON — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was praised Tuesday by the entire Arkansas delegation for delivering a clear and compelling case for drawing a hard line against Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“He made a compelling and impassioned speech about why the world and the United States can’t live with a nuclear Iran,” said Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. “A bad deal doesn’t stop the path to a bomb; it paves the path to a bomb.”
Netanyahu, who spoke to a joint session of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, comes as the U.S., France, Germany, Russia, China and the United Kingdom are seeking an agreement to lift sanctions against Iran as it agrees to curtail a nuclear weapons program.
