“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will give a Mideast peace policy speech in front of U.S. Congress in late May, Haaretz learned on Thursday, in an attempt to counter a speech expected to deal with U.S. Mideast policy by President Barack Obama,” reports Haaretz. “On Thursday it was announced that the premier received official invitation to speak before Congress due to the support of Republican congressmen, and following several weeks in which he and his staff had been attempting to procure such an invitation. Netanyahu is expected to speak at the same week in which he is scheduled to address the AIPAC conference due to take place on May 22….”
Mr. Netanyahu previously addressed a Joint Session of Congress on July 10,1996.
