    In the U.S.-Israel dispute over Iran's nuclear program, Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has emerged as an unlikely protagonist -- siding with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rather than President Obama. In his joint address to Congress, Netanyahu made a point of recognizing the 86-year old Wiesel, who sat in the Speaker's Box with the prime minister's wife, Sara. With us today is Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel." "Elie, your life and work inspires to give meaning to the words, 'never again,'" he added, as lawmakers gave Wiesel a standing ovation. "And I wish I...

    The people at State who are responsible for this probably didn’t see anything amiss. They probably believe much the same thing, even if they wouldn’t state it in the same lurid terms: they likely think that if Israel would just go away, peace would prevail in the Middle East.

    The pundits have been going crazy since Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress today. What spoke loudest, though, was the thundering applause during some two dozen standing ovations for Bibi. And while much was made of Democrats being angry over the speech, there were just a couple of lines specifically related to President Obama’s nuke deal that made the majority of Dems sit out the ovation.Here are some of Bibi’s best lines from the historic address:TWEETING AYATOLLAH: “Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us.

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minster of Israel, delivered a powerful speech to Congress on Tuesday morning that made one thing abundantly clear, the leader of the free world does not reside in the White House. Netanyahu’s speech stood in stark contrast to the irrational rhetoric the Obama administration continues to preach on a daily basis. Such rhetoric on behalf of the adminstration insists on giving Iran the “benefit of the doubt” in regards to negotiations over a long-term nuclear deal while minimizing the actual threat such a “deal” would have on the Middle East. Netanyahu articulated the threat posed by...

Before addressing the threat of a nuclear Iran, Netanyahu tried to clear up the misconception his visit was political after the White House condemned his invitation from House Speaker John Boehner, which was extended without President Obama’s consent. He also thanked Congress for their support of Israel’s Iron Dome. “My friends, I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to...

Such rhetoric will not satisfy those in and out of Congress who share Mr. Netanyahu’s legitimate questions. His speech singled out “two major concessions” he said would be part of any deal the...

Backed by Iran, Shiite militias are rampaging through Iraq. Backed by Iran, Houthis are seizing control of Yemen, threatening the strategic straits at the mouth of the Red Sea. Along with the Straits of Hormuz, that would give Iran a second choke-point on the world’s oil supply.Just last week, near Hormuz, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier.

Those in the Middle East however are fully awake to this metamorphosis, which is why Egypt has perhaps become Israel’s staunchest ally, and why several Arab nations – which may still detest Israel’s existence, but not as much as they fear their own survival...

All of that fell away in the wake of a clear, powerful, and emotional call by Netanyahu for the United States and Israel to stand united against the evil terror of Iran. Netanyahu opened by expressing his humility for...

    The Obama administration has “unilaterally” and “completely” stopped sharing intelligence with Israel over Iran’s nuclear development program due to its anger over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Tuesday address to Congress, Israel’s Channel 10 reported, a charge the White House flatly denied. “The U.S. unilaterally stopped all of its joint activity with Israel regarding the nuclearization of Iran,” the news show reported Monday night. This freeze in intelligence sharing was attributed to the “American anger” at Netanyahu. White House national security spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan told TheBlaze in an email, “the report is completely false.”

    Congressional Republicans haven't had many victories in their lasting conflict with President Obama, but Tuesday brought one. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's somber, provocative speech to Congress checked all the boxes. It called into question the efficacy of any deal the Obama administration might strike with Iran over its nuclear program, it likely renewed momentum for another round of Iranian sanctions on the Hill, it positioned the GOP politically as the party more worried about Israeli security, and, despite the White House's best efforts, made the president appear petty and churlish.

Specifically, Mr. Obama "attacked Netanyahu's judgement" in secret talks with his cabinet, slamming the prime minister of the United States' closest Middle East ally.

    As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepared on Tuesday to address the US Congress regarding the Iran threat, in direct defiance of the Obama White House, at least one nation outside of Israel was supportive of the move: Saudi Arabia.

But Dr. Al-Faraj said the Israeli leader was providing a vital service...

    Introducing a one-sided report on Monday's NBC Today that featured no criticism of President Obama, co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed: "Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has arrived ahead of a controversial speech to Congress tomorrow.

Correspondent Andrea Mitchell emphasized how unwelcome Netanyhu was for the White House: "Arriving in Washington without fanfare late Sunday, Israel's prime minister is at the center of a political firestorm. Shunned by the President, Vice President, and Secretary of State for coming to lobby Congress against a...
