Netanyahu is blinking

19 02 2015

The following comes from a news report today and it shows the Israeli Prime Minister is blinking ahead of his 3 March speech which hitherto has been billed as a major address to a “Joint Session of Congress”.   This may be one of those rare times where Obama and his team have outmanuever Bibi who largest consideration right now is how this all will play out back home with the Israeli election less than a month away.

A source close to Netanyahu’s office had said Israeli officials were considering amending the format of the speech to perhaps have the prime minister speak in a closed session of Congress or in smaller meetings with lawmakers.
