Rivlin demonstrates a non-partisan approach

There was no need for any member of Israel’s leadership who met with a 37 member Republican Congressional delegation led by House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy of California to make a case against the Iran deal.  It would have been like preaching to the converted.

McCarthy when speaking to reporters prior to the delegation’s meeting with President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday, made it absolutely clear that he and his fellow Republicans were not convinced that the deal holds water.

Rivlin made no reference to Iran till half way through his address and in a demonstration of even handedness and non-partisan policy delivered almost exactly the same speech including inserts that were additions to his printed text, that he had made the previous week to a delegation headed by House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer.
