US House speaker invites Netanyahu to address Congress

US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to address a joint meeting of Congress on Feb. 11.
"In this time of challenge, I am asking the Prime Minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life," Boehner said in a statement.
The invitation came a day after US President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address he would veto legislation that toughens sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.
