Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) said his suspicions that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would use his address to Congress last week to bolster his own reelection campaign have come true.
The Israeli Likud Party, which Netanyahu leads, released a campaign advertisement Thursday that includes footage from Netanyahu's speech to Congress last week. Members of Congress are shown applauding as Netanyahu speaks at the House dais.
Cohen noted that members of Congress are banned from using congressional proceedings for their own campaign ads, arguing a foreign leader should be held to the same standard.
"The use of Congressional proceedings in campaign ads is prohibited for members of Congress, and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s predictable use of this footage is one of several reasons I did not attend his speech. I am saddened that Congress is once again being turned into theater and that the prime minister made our Capitol into a studio for his political ads, complete with teleprompters and a live studio audience," Cohen concluded.

America is linked to Israel....If the US wants a war, they will listen to the people complaining and just put another war-monger in power! It may look to the people as change is coming for Israel, but the USA will get what they want...If the USA wants war, it will happen no matter who is put in office...And believe me, the USA will have direct contact with the next puppet put in power over there.
How is America linked to Israel the only we are linked is the Israel is a parasite that is sucking the lifeblood out of America. The people in Israel are fed up with the war mongering that Benny has been crying for years. Also Benny is the reason why America has been in many of the conflicts in the ME. Benny lied to the American government about Iraq and he has been lying about Iran trying to get America to attack them. The best thing for America is for Benny to be removed from power then maybe the people of Israel can finally know some peace as long as they don't elect anyone from the Likud party.
