I find it strange the the US congress would invite Bibi to speak before them to begin with. What exactly has Israel done for the US that merits such an honor? The applause is even more weird. Why should US legislators care if Israel has a presence in the Jordan Valley or if Jerusalem remains undivided. How exactly do any of those things benefit the US? And I don't by the AIPAC explanation. They aren't even a PAC so they don't donate money.
