Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, sat down with NBC News this week for an exclusive interview. NBC's headline for the interview is: "Iran Foreign Minister: We Believe We Are 'Very Close' to Nuke Deal." But the Times of Israel noted a buried lede--"Zarif: The Netanyahu regime ‘should be annihilated'." While the American editors focused on boosting prospects for President Barack Obama's signature diplomatic initiative, their Israeli counterparts focused on the threat that remains.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned home Wednesday to positive reviews of his speech in Congress the day before. If it had been his intention to use the event to boost his campaign, however, he made little impact, enjoying a modest bump in the polls, at best. In one poll, the speech received rave reviews, with 44% of respondents saying it boosted their opinion of him, versus 12% who said it hurt their image of him. However, his Likud party was still in second place.
It does not matter whether they attended the speech, boycotted the speech, or read the transcript of the speech. Democrats, surprised by how convincing Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on Tuesday turned out to be, have simply decided to lie about it.

Yet there is another bill in the works that, after Tuesday, Obama may find he cannot refuse.
How successful was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a special joint session of Congress on Tuesday? Judging from the changed reactions of his media critics, almost all of whom praised the speech, it was a complete triumph.

Israeli Prime Minister addresses Congress on Tuesday, March 3. His topic, as per Speaker of the House John Boehner, is to explain "the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.”
While nearly 1 in 4 congressional Democrats had announced their intention to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, one California Democrat said that he was "honored" to have been chosen to be among the legislators who escort Netanyahu into the House chamber.
President Barack Obama took a stab at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview with Reuters on Monday, on the eve of Netanyahu's controversial speech to a special joint session of Congress on Tuesday morning. Obama said that Netanyahu "made all sorts of claims" about the interim nuclear deal with Iran that turned out to be untrue. Yet Obama mischaracterized Netanyahu's remarks, and misrepresented Iranian compliance with the terms of the interim deal.
