Benjamin Netanyahu Says He Is 'Determined To Speak Before Congress'

Good for Him!
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today his country had a "profound disagreement" with the White House on Iran and he was "determined to speak before Congress" on March 3 on the Islamic republic's nuclear program.
"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," Netanyahu said in a statement.
In the statement, Netanyahu noted "serious disagreements" between past U.S. and Israeli governments, saying, "None of these disagreements led to a rupture in the relationship between Israel and the United States. In fact, over time, our relationship grew stronger.
"But we do have today a profound disagreement with the United States administration and the rest of the P5+1 over the offer that has been made to Iran. This offer would enable Iran to threaten Israel's survival."
Earlier, Netanyahu tweeted:

The P5+1 refers to the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council – Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States – plus Germany. They are engaged in talks with Iran on its nuclear program. The West says Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies. Israel views Iran as an existential threat.
