Elie Wiesel and Ted Cruz Urge America to Listen to Netanyahu
If the Democratic Party boycotts Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to congress, they will prove themselves to be as juvenile and anti-Semitic as the BDS movement which has infected American college campuses.
They will also demonstrate that they are not serious about our national security or the preservation of our best ally in the Middle East. Elie Wiesel and Ted Cruz voiced their concerns today.

Elie Wiesel, Ted Cruz Urge U.S. to Take Iran Seriously, Listen to Netanyahu
Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel told a large group on Capitol Hill on Monday that the threat of a nuclear Iran must be taken seriously and said it was important that Americans hear Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.
Wiesel was joined by Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) in a jam-packed Senate auditorium for a discussion on the dangers of Iran and the rising tide of anti-Semitism across the globe.
“To be Jewish in this world is to always be concerned,” explained Wiesel when asked about Iran. “When enemies make threats, take them seriously.”
“When evil begins its work, don’t give it another chance,” said Wiesel.
I read Elie Wiesel’s first-hand account of being a concentration camp prisoner during the Holocaust when I was in the eighth grade. It should be required reading at all schools.
If Wiesel is concerned, so am I. You should be too.
