Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Monday night that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress Tuesday "focuses on the single greatest security threat facing America – the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons."

"We're at a moment in history where echoes of the past can be heard," he added. "The nuclear deal being negotiated with Iran, I believe, would be a historic mistake on the same order as Munich.

"To allow the theocratic extreme mullahs in Iran to have nuclear weapon capability increases dramatically the likelihood that those weapons of great destruction will be used to murder billions," the senator warned.

Almost one in four House Democrats will boycott Tuesday’s address by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to the joint houses of Congress, writes The Hill.
