New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is sitting front and center in the U.S. House chamber to support Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Kraft is sitting directly behind Netanyahu's wife, Sara ... while her husband addresses Congress about why he believes Iran is a nuclear threat.
The speech has become a controversial issue in Washington -- with several members of Congress boycotting the speech.
But Kraft clearly wanted to make a statement ... which isn't too shocking considering Kraft's connection to Israel.
As we previously reported, Kraft not only sponsors the Israeli Football League ... but recently produced a documentary about the country.
