We are strongly opposed to the agreement being formulated between the world powers and Iran that could endanger Israel’s very existence.

And now this…
Reuters will interview Barack Obama on Monday just hours before Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.
Obama is hoping to preempt his message.
Israel National News reported:
Reuters has obtained the rights to an exclusive interview with US President Barack Obama later today (Monday), just hours before Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is to speak before the US Congress.
The interview is to be recorded in the White House, about 24 hours before Netanyahu is due to speak. It also appears that the US president will not only address Netanyahu’s appearance in the interview, but also the negotiations with Iran.
