Pope Francis had a closed-door meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, the latest example of the pontiff’s deeper wade into politics than his Catholic Church predecessors.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ignited a firestorm in his country among critics who say some of his purchases have been frivolous and wasteful.
In what’s sure to fuel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s angst over the American-forged nuclear development deal with Tehran, the foreign minister of Iran said Friday that all further discussions will have to leave out Israel.
President Obama has sent a query to Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, asking the fiery and blunt-talking prime minister to take a break from his criticism of the U.S.-forged deal with Iran.
One year ago, on Nov. 29, 2012, the U.N. General Assembly voted to upgrade the Palestinian Authority (PA) to the status of a "nonmember observer state."
President Obama says the deal to ease economic sanctions against Iran is better than going to war to stop Tehran from building a nuclear weapon.
The agreement on Iran's nuclear program provides President Obama with a rare potential achievement in a blunder-filled second term, but the move is also raising tensions with Israel, America's most important ally in the Middle East.
President Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday in an attempt to smooth over Israeli anger at the U.S.-brokered pact that eases sanctions against Iran in return for tighter monitoring of its nuclear program.
The Obama administration put on a full-court press Sunday to defend the deal the U.S. and key allies struck to try to halt Iran's burgeoning nuclear program — but the White House faces a tough sell with members of Congress who criticized the terms and said they'll still press for even tighter sanctions on the Islamic republic.
Sen. Bob Corker said Sunday the overnight deal reached in Geneva to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for a gradual easing of economic sanctions will be useless if Congress does not hold the Islamic Republic's "feet to the fire" to make sure its leaders do not feel as if they have scored a win.
Israel's prime minister harshly condemned the international community's nuclear deal with Iran on Sunday while Saudi Arabia remained conspicuously quiet, reflecting the jitters felt throughout the Middle East over Iran's acceptance on the global stage.
The saddest commentary on the deal Barack Obama and his frightened allies struck to save the Iranian nuclear program is that it's what we knew to expect. Well into his second term, there are no surprises by this president. He promised Vladimir Putin that he would be "more flexible" once past his re-election, and this is the promise he's keeping.
The U.S. and five other nations have reached an agreement with Iran on its nuclear program following intense talks, a European Union spokesman said in Geneva.
Right around the time Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was heading to Russia for an 11th hour attempt to influence a global deal with Tehran over nuclear development, Iran's top religious leader was emphasizing the fated fall of the Jewish nation.
With the international community inching toward an agreement with Iran that would slow parts of that nation's nuclear program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday cautioned against accepting "an exceedingly bad deal" that he says would threaten the very existence of his country.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained the new procedures to Tony Blair, the former British prime minister who is the envoy for the "Quartet" of Mideast peacemakers — the United States, the United Nationas, the European Union and Russia.
Also Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he has accepted a German mediator's proposal to release 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for a captive Israeli soldier held by Hamas militants in Gaza for four years.
