The new Netanyahu-led government was created to serve its own political agenda, which is far removed from Israel's national interests. Indeed, in Israel the politician's personal interest comes first, the interest of the political party comes second, favoritism comes third, and the country can wait.
In a few days, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will mount the podium of the U.S. Congress to speak before a joint session of the House and Senate. He will use the occasion to blast Iran and issue dire warnings about the current US-led negotiations designed to limit Iran's nuclear program.
Although he didn't have a formal invitation to address the Israeli Parliament, when the motorcade whipped through Jerusalem and pulled up at the Knesset, President Obama was greeted by a huge crowd of both citizens and legislators from the full spectrum of parties, and the President was whisked inside.
