Prime Minister Netanyahu Goes to Congress. by The Elephant's Child

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a magnificent speech before a truly supportive joint session of Congress this afternoon.  It is an excellent speech, the text is here. One very memorable passage:

Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens enjoy real democratic rights.  Now, I want you to stop for a second and think about that.  Of those 300 million Arabs, less than one-half of one percent are truly free and they’re all citizens of Israel.  This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong with about the Middle East, Israel is what is right about the Middle East.
