Latest Benjamin Netanyahu Items
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 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.
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.

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.
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.
