It’s the humiliation phase, in which the Iranians get to exploit photos and video showing their opponents as weak and the Iranians as strong.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin are refusing to meet with former President Jimmy Carter during Carter’s trip to Israel.
