Time to say thank-you to Congress

In a surprise move, Obama vetoed the UNSC resolution condemning settlements. It’s time for Israel to say thank you, and the best way would be for Netanyahu to propose cutbacks in American aid, thereby strengthening the alliance with the US.

Last week’s US veto of a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements once again highlighted the critical role Congress plays in the US-Israel alliance. And it’s long past time for Israel to give Congress a tangible expression of thanks for its ongoing support.

Granted, the veto decision was technically made by President Barack Obama, not by Congress. The question is why.
