Labor MK blasts Netanyahu for invite from US Congress

January 21, 2015 20:36

Labor MK Eitan Cabel reacted furiously on Wednesday to US House Speaker John Boehner's invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address both houses of Congress.

Cabet charged that Netanyahu “ran” to arrange an invitation for himself to address the Congress because he is in “hysteria” over polling results showing him lagging behind Labor-Hatnua in the polls.

"Unfortunately for him, the end of the Netanyahu era has come, and in his political condition not even the American Congress can save him,” he said in a statement.

Cabel said that this invitation, which was apparently not coordinated with the White House, is liable to harm his ties with the Obama administration even worse.

But, Cabel said, “Netanyahu has never had a problem sacrificing the country's vital interests for a photo-op.”
