Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington on Monday is being billed as a fence-mending visit after their dispute over the Iran nuclear deal — but analysts see the meeting as something of a victory lap for Netanyahu.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton urged Israelis to continue supporting the moribund peace process with the Palestinians, despite the setbacks of the past two decades.
After Benjamin Netanyahu alleged that Palestinians forced Hitler into committing the Holocaust, now even Germany is speaking up.

The Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” had an embarrassing gaffe Thursday, in its effort to track the latest congressional vote count on the Iran nuclear deal.
On the Iran deal, mainstream opinion in Israel’s military and intelligence circles is more closely aligned with Barack Obama than Bibi Netanyahu — as two former chiefs of the Jewish state’s spy services have publicly declared.
Obama: “Let’s not mince words. The choice we face is ultimately between diplomacy or some form of war. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not three months from now, but soon.”
