…Fiddlesticks. One of the moving sights every time it has happened, Bibi’s appearance in Congress, is the reception he gets. He is smothered in love, respect, affection. He enters and walks down the aisle through a forest of hands and people smiling from ear to ear with applause as background music. The Israeli Leftists here don’t know what they are talking about and/or are so envious of him, they deny this reality.
