Netanyahu: I’m not going to Washington to confront Obama

In almost daily references to his forthcoming speech to the US Congress, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday night: “This is not a personal disagreement between President Obama and me. I deeply appreciate all he has done for Israel in many fields.” He then stressed: "I am going to the United States not because I seek a confrontation with the President, but because I must fulfill my obligation to speak up on a matter that affects the very survival of my country."

"I intend to speak about this issue before the March 24th deadline and I intend to speak in the US Congress because Congress might have an important role on a nuclear deal with Iran.” Under this deal, Iran, which is openly committed to Israel’s destruction, could break out to a nuclear weapon in a short time, and within a few years, have the industrial capability to produce many nuclear bombs.
