Washington - Rightfully, our House Republican leaders have delayed today's scheduled 1:00 PM vote on the Obama Iran Deal. "We will continue the conversation on Iran from this morning and discuss strategy for the rest of the week," a GOP leadership aide said.

On the same date that Congress voted to rename the colonies the "United States of America" in 1776 is the same date this year that Congress will move to vote on an issue that could break our nation in pieces.

Congress will vote in support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that President Obama negotiated or against it.

But on the Jewish calendar, today marks 67 years since the dramatic, prophetic rebirth of the Jewish State. A few thoughts to mark the occasion: It’s a very special time for our family as it’s our first time celebrating as new Israeli citizens (“Olim Chadashim”) and actually living here full-time in the epicenter.

(Central Israel) — On Thursday evening, rather than pore over the details of the deal that the P5+1 just struck with Iran regarding its nuclear program, I took one of my sons to a wonderful Passover Seder attended by Jewish and non-Jewish friends in Kfar Shmaryahu, a suburb of Tel Aviv.
