This is what we know he’d say, what we know he thinks. He didn’t have to go to Congress to say it. “This is a bad deal — a very bad deal. We’re better off without it,” Netanyahu says. There you have it — the money quote. The Israeli leader says “the alternative to this […]

Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack. According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United […]

President Obama is prepared to veto legislation that would allow Congress to have a say in approving a nuclear deal with Iran. The White House told The Hill Saturday a recently introduced bill to that effect is a no-go. “The president has been clear that now is not the time for Congress to pass additional […]
