Grassroots groups planned a rally in support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington. Dubbed #BibiSpeaks4Me, the rally takes place 9 a.m. on March 3.

The Prime Minister of Israel is set to speak to Congress on March 3. In response to those who oppose the speech, Israel’s Voice, Voice of the Copts and other grassroots pro-Israel groups have joined in solidarity with the Prime Minister and will hold a rally at the US Capital West in Washington, D.C. (Front Grassy Area of Capitol), March 3, 2015 at 9 a.m.

There has been an all-out diplomatic and PR war against the Prime Minister of Israel, seeking to discredit his speech to the American people before Congress. The Prime Minister’s objective is to inform Congress of the dangers of the looming deal, to Israel and the West, between the Obama Administration and Iran.

The powerful Iranian Lobby Group NIAC is even taking out expensive ads in The New York Times, hoping to thwart and pervert any truth that may get out into the public discourse.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is worried by what he and other top officials, including Henry Kissinger, former Ambassador Dore Gold and members of Congress have called an alarming deal that would give Iran access to nuclear capabilities as well as gain hegemony within the region, leaving Israel facing an existential threat. Time is of the essence for the prime minister to deliver his message about the danger of this deal, as the players involved are hoping to close it sooner rather than later.

J Street, an organization that masquerades as a pro-Israel group, took the astonishing stance of going against the PM’s visit to Congress and came out with the hashtag campaign #BibiDoesntSpeakForMe.

Michael Mendelson, president of Israel’s Voice, stated, “1,000 have confirmed their attendance and we’re hoping with more promotion that many more will stand with us, at the #BibiSpeaks4Me Rally!”
