Earlier in February, Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., whose upper Manhattan district includes a large number of Jewish constituents, issued a challenge to Netanyahu via Twitter.

Rep. Greg Meeks, D-N.Y., who also represents a heavily Jewish district in New York City, told the Washington Examiner he's still deciding whether he'll attend Netanyahu's committee address Monday morning, but definitely will not show up on Tuesday for his address to a joint session of Congress.
