Zionist Camp leader Isaac Herzog met with Vice President Joe Biden and US Secretary of State John Kerry Saturday on the sidelines of an international security conference.

Herzog addressed political tensions between Israel and the US over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s scheduled address to the US Congress, saying that if he were prime minister, he would not have accepted an invitation from Republicans that undermines the White House and politicizes support of Israel.

    It wouldn’t matter what position Herzog had! – He would not get an invitation in the first place to address a joint sitting of Congress!

  • The message to Congress has to come from all of Israel
    http://www.madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2015/02/the-message-to-congress-has-to-come.html

    When on May 10, 1940 Winston Churchill became  PM, to fight the Nazis he formed a national government which was a coalition of all major political parties.  This coalition lasted until May of 1945 when after the defeat of Germany Clement Attlee  decided to dissolve it.

    All Israeli political parties, except perhaps the Arab ones, understand that if Iran gets the bomb it will be an existential threat to Israel and the US.  This crucial message has to be conveyed to Congress and the American people. Congress must hear the truth for itself else it will be committing an act of abdication of duty without parallel.

    To remove any accusation of electioneering,  all political parties must send their representative to Congress to deliver the message in unison and demonstrate that they stand by the PM at this  most decisive of moments in Israel’s history.

    according to http://www.inn.co.il/News/Flash.aspx/476634
    The state department denies any meeting.
    According to other Israel sources , Hartzog said “Hello”
    shook hands with Kerry, His aid took a picture – end of “meeting”.
