Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress: A Wedge Between Two Allies

In a controversial joint session of Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vehemently argued against the pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran. Netanyahu strongly laid out how this deal would be bad for the international community, as this agreement would give Iran the impetus to produce a nuclear weapon.

Any agreement “doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb, it paves Iran’s path to the bomb,” Netanyahu said. “So why would anyone make this deal?”

This speech before Congress has placed a wedge between the two long term allies, with The Washington Post reporting that Netanyahu’s speech before Congress frayed relations between the United States and Israel and laid bare fissures between leading Jewish American groups and Jewish Democrats by discussing a deal (that has not yet been reached), on how to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Iran poses a “grave threat” to Israel and the world, stated Netanyahu. The prime minister is expressing his concerns in the speech about enriched uranium and Iranian nuclear research and development, as well as his worries about the approach taken to the international nuclear talks.
