Whether the Israeli prime minister and congressional Republicans meant it to or not, Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned speech before a joint meeting of Congress on March 3, just two weeks before Israel votes, has seized center stage as the dominant issue in the election campaign.
Netanyahu this week brushed aside calls to cancel the trip to Washington, which has angered the Obama administration and congressional Democrats.
In his address to Congress, Netanyahu plans to argue against any accord with Iran that allows the country to retain centrifuges to enrich uranium and hover anywhere near a threshold for building a nuclear weapon.
After months of wrangling over the Iran deal, Netanyahu appears on a collision course with the White House.
