U.S. ISRAEL TENSION DEEPENS

U.S. ISRAEL TENSION DEEPENS

On Wednesday the judgment of Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu was questioned by U.S. officials stating that the prime minister’s outspoken condemnation of the efforts being made so as to secure a nuclear deal with Iran had injected destructive partisanship into the U.S. Israeli relations.

Just days before the Israeli prime Minister addresses congress on the threat that Iran posses, Netanyahu accused world powers of neglecting their pledge of ensuring that Iran does not get a nuclear bomb.

Secretary of State’s John Kerry, who is currently engaged with international talks with the Iranians regarding its nuclear program, stated during a congressional hearing that the Israeli’s prime minister may be wrong. "He may have a judgment that just may not be correct here."

Kerry advised that he will be waiting to hear what the Israeli prime minister has to say on his Tuesday speech at the congress. Benjamin Netanyahu was invited by the republicans who are supporting his stand on not agreeing to a nuclear deal with Iran.

Kerry added that Benjamin Netanyahu "was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under (President) George W. Bush, and we all know what happened with that decision."

While echoing the sentiments of President Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, White House Spokesman Josh Earnest warned against politicking the relationship that the US has with Israel, saying that it will be destructive.

"The president has said the relationship between the U.S. and Israel can’t just be reduced to a relationship between the Republican party and the Likud party," Earnest told reporters, referring to Netanyahu's party.

The administration last week accused Israel of distorting the position of the U.S. in the talks by using selective leaks.
