"Iraqi Prime Minister's Maliki's criticism of Israel's right to defend itself is unacceptable," Pelosi said in a statement.

"At the White House this morning, Mr. Maliki did not retreat from his comments on Israel and once again failed to criticize Hamas and Hezbollah's terrorist activities.

"Unless Mr. Maliki disavows his critical comments of Israel and condemns terrorism, it is inappropriate to honor him with a joint meeting of Congress."
