“Washington, D.C. – Several influential Democratic senators said on Wednesday they and other senators are considering boycotting an upcoming speech to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to protest the decision by House Republicans to disregard protocol and invite the foreign leader without the involvement and blessing of the White House.
“Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, who is also a close ally of President Barack Obama, said: “colleagues of mine are very concerned about it and I’m troubled by it. I won’t name names, of course. It’s a serious mistake by the speaker and the prime minister. The relationship between Israel and the United States has been so strong, so bipartisan.”
“Durbin said he hasn’t decided whether to attend the March 3 speech to a joint meeting of Congress. In his address, Netanyahu is expected to criticize the controversial negotiations the Obama administration is spearheading with Iran aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear program. Those talks face a critical deadline at the end of March.
“Durbin said, referring to Republican House Speaker John Boehner who invited Netanyahu: “one of my closest friends – one of the strongest supporters of Israel – described this Boehner tactic a disaster, a terrible disaster for Israel. I won’t speak for any other members but they’ve been talking to me about what is the right way to react to what could turn out to be a divisive event.”
In an interview with Newslo, President Obama stated that he would “take similar actions in retribution if the Israeli Prime Minster doesn’t cancel his address to Congress by the end of February.”
“I’ve always felt Netanyahu was a wise man, but how he figured to get away with this, and scot-free at that, just eludes me,” Obama said. “I try to be a man of diplomacy and not a man of conflict, but if this is how Bibi wants to play, he’s going to have his hands full.”
“Netanyahu has until the end of February to cancel his address, or not only will I make sure the Democrats boycott his speech, but I will also make an appointment to appear at the Israeli parliament right after. Is this a threat, you ask? You’re damn right it is,” the President concluded.
The same administration that support the Muslim brotherhood right?
Your president is a wanker. Sorry but he is.
I don’t think it’s real. Obama doesn’t have the nuts to make a threat let alone follow it through. Who would listen to what he says if he isn’t buying their votes with tax payer money anyway?
kindergarten behavior by the president and the democrat senators
Ive come to really dislike demorats
Let obama come to israel and boycot him
Yeah, it doesn’t sound real. But if it is, isn’t that a lot like saying, “I going to jam my eye into his fist as hard as I can! That’ll show him!”
You realize this article is absolute click bait bullshit right?
President Of USA acts like a THUG, and even talks like a THUG. You can take the THUG out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the THUG.
if that’s the deal then fine! let him come whenever he wants.
It would be great if he came. Israelis can’t stand him. They could watch leftists suck up to him and his plan to overthrow Netanyahu would backfire even more extremely
he sure is worried about the visit and speech from Netanyahu. Obama should go to Israel. It would be a first.
remember he is sending his recruits to interfere with elections too,, Mr. Netanyahu. They destroy everything they touch, we lost our country because of them.. GBU Israel inJesus Name.
Let Obama come to talk at the Knesset, may baya?
He’s not my president! I don’t respect anyone who is against the Jews, even if he a phoney like Barry Obama!!!!!
you want to down republicans for protocol but democrats do it every day and its ok
What’s good for goose is sauce for the gander in my mitt romney
After Obama made the Middle East worst than ever before ,and now rushing to make Iran nuclear ,how can you expect Israel to believe the Americans ?
make an appointment to appear? what the fuck he thinks our Knesset is a dr. office u just call up and show up? NOBODY is inviting the little shmuk
First of all…he may be the president, but he’s NEVER been my president. Secondly, I agree. The pos is a wanker. Lastly, this response of his is the equivalent of a 3 year old throwing a tantrum and I for one am embarrassed for him. He clearly hasn’t the brains to be embarrassed on his own for not being able to subdue his emotions.
Newslo is a satire site. None of this is true. Although, I wouldn’t put it past Obama to try something like this.
Our President is a total piece of garbage. He is also a traitor to the United States. I pray that when Netanyahu speaks to Congress, he sticks his thumb directly in Obama’s eye and twists it. It is unfortunate that the Prime Minister of Israel has a better understanding of what is best for the US than does the President. Then again, I am convinced that Obama knows exactly what is best for the US, which is why he does the opposite whenever possible.
Since when does Obama control or even have a say in congress? They are completely separate branches of the government. Then again, Obama acts like the constitution doesn’t exist. I can’t wait until he leaves office.
We the (majority) of the people of the United States of America stand with Israel. Obama is a liar and imo, he’s in alliance with the radical islamic extremists. The American ppl, …. I want to hear what Netanyahu has to say.
First of all, unlike in the U.S. Netayahu’s party is in control of The Israeli Parliament and can decide who speaks there. Secondly, unlike the President, nobody in Israel fears the US President speaking there and I’m sure he is more than welcome to speak anytime he wants. Third, the president was invited to speak before Parliament during his last visit there and turned the invitation down. so you see, nobody gives a crap if Obama speaks or doesn’t speak in Israel. It not a threat. Only Obama is insecure and feel threatened by Bibi.
Obama. ..pissing more lines in the sand. He is such a divider. A pos muslim who of course doesn’t want to hear from a strong Israeli leader. Oscumbo is a stinking TRAITOR. He doesn’t want AMERICA to hear the truth of the threat ISLAM poses to the world. His goal, like all muslims is lies lies lies and more lies to deceive non-muslims til they can slit our throats. …READ THEIR BOOKS!
Obama is a FOOL we are ashamed so many low information clueless voters put and kept him im office and a mainstream media that covered for all his lies and deceit
It sure sounds like a temper tantrum to me. It’s awful that someone would actually do anything without this Muslims permission. Why would he even think he’s welcome to speak in Israel after turning his back on one of our strongest allies. I wonder if this idiot in the White House even knows how little this great nation thinks of him, worse yet, if he even cares.
Drama Obama! If he goes to Israel he had better get ready for the whoppin of his life.
Jasmine Ferry you are so right…the worst president we’ve ever had.
Yeah likr that’s going to happen…just like that red line obama drew was really a yellow one that went up the middle of his back.
Personally, if o threatened me I would have to do it. He’s a gutless wonder and that’s the best I can say. Israelis know what that part of the world is, they live there. We ought to support them. I cannot find anything in dc worth supporting or believing in these days. God bless our brave people who will stand behind Israel.
Quack like the lame duck you are Obummer.
Don’t let him, bully you.
Mr Durbin… elections have consequences. Your party is no longer in charge of the legislature. Get over it.
Dick Durbin how can you say you will not listen to our number one country on the Middle East. Just listen and do what is right for our country. Or will you just listen to the friend if isil and the musl brotherhood in our White House. We will be watching you and any other senator who can not even what our friend has to say
Sorry for you fools that think that is true, newslo is a satire site.
What a stupid threat! The Republicans currently dominate the senate! His threat is juvinile. He’s demanding respect where as he should be working more on earning it!
Dear Mr. Obama, You are welcome to speak in the Knesset. Pity the news would appear to be SATIRE!
Bring it on Mr. Obama… There are a LOT of things we would like to ask you…for instance….. http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/2015/February09/091.html and then there is this… http://israel.trendolizer.com/2015/02/white-house-fabricated-spat-with-netanyahu-knew-of-congress-invite-all-along.html and that’s just the warm up 😀
Screw Obam! I can’t wait to hear what Bibi has to say! So does most of America! I wouldn’t let Obama speak at a Dog Show the lying BASTARD!
Newslo, The First Ever Hybrid News/Satire Platform!
the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery. I’d say Obama is guilty of teason. He’s trying to over throw our own government by writing his own laws.
I support Netanyahu
Proof that Obama said the words quoted. That’s low and childish even for him – and he is pretty low and childish.
Go for it Obama, we’d love to see you make another ass of yourself … who is chicken shit now
Obama is an inept leader. A spoiled little child and lashes out like the typical bully he is.

I am sure the Israelis are trembling at the thought of Obama bringing his comedy routine there.
Let him go and stick his foot in his mouth. He can’t get it right. He will be escorted out of the country if they would even have him
If you want to kill the speech of Hussein, just kill the community organizing teleprompter. He won’t show. Democrat males don’t have balls. Just their women do. Like Wassaman Shultz.
All you guys who posted these comments should all be in the parliament what a great job you would all do and YOUR HUMOR IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!
