JNS.org – Israel’s Voice and Voice of the Copts, along with other grassroots organizations, are organizing a rally in Washington, DC to support Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to Congress about the Iranian nuclear threat.

The rally, which is bring promoted under the hashtag #BibiSpeaks4Me and will take place at 9 a.m. at US Capitol West on the day of the speech, has an estimated 1,000 confirmed attendees so far, Israel’s Voice President Michael Mendelson said.

On Tuesday, Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman partially reversed his initial criticism of Netanyahu’s speech, which has been opposed by the White House and some Congressional Democrats on the grounds that House Speaker John Boehner did not consult with President Barack Obama about inviting Netanyahu.

US Jewish Groups Praise Tillerson’s Renewal of State Department Antisemitism Envoy

US Jewish groups reacted with praise and relief on Tuesday to the news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is...

“While the original decision by Prime Minister Netanyahu to accept the invitation to address Congress without consulting the Democratic leadership was, in our view, ill-advised, now that it is happening, the speech deserves support from both sides of the aisle,” Foxman said. “This is a time for Members [of Congress] to transcend the political controversy and come together to underscore the broad support for Israel’s security and understanding of its unique concerns about the threat of a nuclear Iran.”

In an event description for the rally, Israel’s Voice said, “Not surprisingly, Netanyahu has been urged to cancel his March 3 speech by Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and by the so-called ‘pro-Israel’ group J Street, which has been circulating on Twitter the hashtag, ‘BibiDoesntSpeakForMe.’ Yet, unlike the ADL, which has backpedaled to some extent, Israel’s Voice has remained firm in its support and has established the Twitter hashtag ‘#BibiSpeaks4Me.'”

    As an American Jew who will be making aliyah soon, I want to express my deepest appreciation to Bibi for having the courage to speak truth to power on behalf of Jews everywhere and civilized people around the world: You do speak for me! Kol ha-kavod, Bibi!

  • Edith Palace

    Bibi speaks for me!!!
    Welcome Bibi, leader who has a backbone!
    Shame to Congresswoman or Senator ( even worse) Feinstein, or California, shame on Steven Spielberg, b.streisand,all the weak rich self hating directors in Hollywood, who are the same uninvolved ignorant people with ways their ancestors must have been in the 1940’s when my parents and my grandparents were taken to Auschwits by cattle cars!!
    Never again will Jews be intimidated and scared into being slaughtered!
    Judge Janine Pirro has more guts, intelligence than these mentioned weaklings.

  • The Prime Mnister of Israel speaks for me and Israel.
    I am proud to be part of this rally of welcome. Speak on Prime Minister and let the truth be heard.

    I’m proud of Bibi. It takes guts to do what he is doing, and believe me- it’s not only for Israel that he is going to speak, it’s for the rest of the world as well. I wish him every success.
