Rift Widens Over Netanyahu Speech to Congress

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to address Congress about Iran nuclear talks at the invitation of the GOP and without the White House's approval, has raised fears in Israel that the move could deeply damage the vital alliance with the U.S., which gives about $3 billion in aid to Israel annually. Netanyahu is expected to issue a stern warning to the U.S. about signing a nuclear deal with Tehran, a government seen to be fundamentally untrustworthy and that could threaten the Israel's very existence if it ever developed nuclear weapons. National Security Adviser Susan Rice has called Netanyahu's speech "destructive to the fabric of the relationship." Despite differences, analysts believe Netanyahu will try to repair ties with the White House after March 17 elections. Read »
