Bibi Wins Over Congress

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech in Congress discussing Israel's 1967 border lines on Tuesday was met with overwhelming bipartisan approval. Much of Bibi's speech was aimed directly at President Obama, who said in his Mideast speech that an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement in Israel should be "based on 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps." Congress erupted in cheers as Bibi maintained his stance that "Israel will not return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967," with or without Obama's proposed "swaps." Throughout his speech, Bibi received 29 standing ovations, which surpasses the 25 ovations Obama got during his 2011 State of the Union address.
