The framework agreement reached last week between the UN "5 plus 1" group and Iran has won general approval internationally, except in Israel and among Benjamin Netanyahu's Republican Party claque in Washington, where such was never expected.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes a bid to thwart President Barack Obama’s foreign policy toward Iran, the Iranian press is reacting to the wrench Netanyahu is trying to throw into negotiations over Iran’s civilian nuclear enrichment program. But for some odd reason, American mass media are almost never interested in what critics of the United States are saying.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly believes he can openly side with the Republican Congress against President Barack Obama without facing any consequences. However, Meir Dagan, the former head of Israeli intelligence, sees danger.
Republican House Majority leader John Boehner secretly invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington to address Congress and then once it was set up he let Barack Obama know about it.
