Davis tells Regional Radio that Vice President Joe Biden has been in contact with Netanyahu's opponent in the upcoming Israeli elections, and that the attacks being launched at Speaker of the House John Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to address Congress so close to the March 17th Israeli elections are hypocritical in nature.

Davis added that criticizing the Israeli leader's address could further sour one of the few relationships the United States has in the Middle East.
