If there's one thing Republicans hate, it's not having a mortal enemy to demonize, to scare their constituents, and to fatten the wallets of their buddies in the defense contract industry. It's also to separate the men from the boys (in their small minds anyway), even though very few of them would be willing to actually go mano-a-mano with anyone. The Middle East is always low-hanging fruit for them, because it's easy enough to stereotype and convince their simple-minded sycophants that everyone in the region is dangerous.
Well - except for Israel, of course. Israel is the Promised Land full of noble men who only want to protect the Land of Jesus and Abraham from those heathen Muslims (who also happen to believe in the same God, but that's another story).
They also hate President Obama, so what better way to poke a stick in his eye, show support for Israel, and demonize another country in the region than to invite Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress? Unfortunately for them, they appear to have stepped in it.
