Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered his controversial address to Congress Tuesday morning, a speech crafted for maximum tweetability. Game of Thrones reference? Check. A Farewell to Arms Control? Check.
If you wanna skip the speech but grasp the message, simply follow the slogans:
“No matter which side of the aisle you sit on, you stand with Israel.”
“This Capitol dome helped build our Iron Dome.”
“At a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.”
“In this deadly game of thrones, there is no room for America or Israel.”
“When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.
“You don’t need intelligence agencies and secret information to know this. You can Google it.”
“[This deal] doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”
“This deal won’t be a farewell to arms—it will be a farewell to arms control.”
“A better deal that Israel and its neighbors may not like, but with which we could live — literally.”
“If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country”
“A racecar driver without a car can’t drive. A pilot without a plan can’t fly. Without thousands of centrifuges, tons of enriched uranium or heavy water facilities, Iran can’t make nuclear weapons.”
“Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.”
