Democrats: Don't Attend Netanyahu's Speech

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Members of Congress should ask Speaker Boehner and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to cancel Netanyahu’s scheduled talk to Congress weeks before the Israeli election. If the talk is not cancelled, Members of Congress should refuse to attend it.
There are currently 32,763 signatures. NEW goal - We need 40,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Republican House Speaker John Boehner has scheduled an address to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu two weeks before the Israeli election, without consulting the White House or the House Democratic leadership. Netanyahu and Boehner have said that the purpose of the talk is to attack President Obama’s diplomatic engagement with Iran and try to blow up the talks. The White House has said that President Obama and Administration officials will not meet with Netanyahu.

Urge Democratic Members of Congress not to attend Netanyahu's speech by signing our petition.

UPDATES: So far, 36 Democrats have said that they won't attend the speech:
