The administration continues in its attempt to marginalize Prime Minister Netanyahu ahead of his speech on Iran. And the efforts appear to be backfiring.

Jeffrey Goldberg tells some important truths in today’s column, Danger Ahead for Obama on Iran:

The White House expects Netanyahu to hit back against its efforts...

Democrats are running on overdrive in an attempt to derail Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress. What started as an attempted Democrat caucus boycott has morphed into a halfhearted-if-vocal D minority boycott bolstered by efforts from the White House to temper enthusiasm for what is sure to be...

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t flinch when Democrats called for a boycott of his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress. Most would agree he had no reason to—for all of their bluster, only 23 dems signed on to a trumped-up letter demanding the speech be cancelled; Nancy Pelosi ...

Benjamin Netanyahu posted a video as part of his campaign.

It’s the type of statement I can only imagine Netanyahu, among current Israeli politicians, giving.

I don’t know how the election will go, and I don’t pretend to understand how Israeli voters will view it, but sitting here on...

The now-open conflict between the Obama administration and Bibi Netanyahu has little to do with Obama’s hurt feelings or a breach of protocol, though it is portrayed that way by the White House, many Democrats, and increasingly, weak-kneed supporters of Israel who worry that getting Barack Obama angry would be the...

It all is proceeding as planned.

A nuke deal with Iran, with the quid pro quo of assisting Iran’s expansion into a regional power, is working its way forward. For that, Iran gets to keep most of its nuclear program, because it likes it.

There are two things standing in the way:...

There’s something bizarre about seeing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoting himself in a lighthearted campaign ad; but the latest spot from the Likud party brings a nice slice of humanity into an otherwise-bitterly contested election, and offers up a laugh or two in the process.

Via the Israel National News:

Is there anyone who gets Obama more upset than Bibi Netanyahu?

It’s not for nothing that unnamed senior administration officials called Netanyahu “chickenshit” and mocked Israel’s failure to attack Iran.

There is no love lost in that relationship.
