    Iran's Rouhani Says Israel 'Greatest Danger'

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday said Israel creates the "greatest danger" in the region, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against a nuclear deal with the Islamic republic. - In a speech on Capitol Hill, Netanyahu said Tuesday the nuclear agreement US President Barack Obama wants with Tehran "is so bad... it paves Iran's path to the bomb" and "would spark a nuclear arms race in the most dangerous part of the planet". - Rouhani hit...

    Philip Weiss: Media Stunned by Congress's Loyalty to Netanyahu

    In the Emperor’s New Clothes, only the little boy can say that the emperor is naked. The good news about yesterday’s speech by Netanyahu to a joint meeting of Congress is that lots of media are taking on that boy’s role, and pointing out the nudity: exclaiming over the fact that a foreign leader came into our house of government to try and overrule our president on foreign policy. Chris Matthews was especially forceful, describing it as a takeover. While a... More →

    Yvonne Ridley: And the Lesson Today is Palestine and People Power

    Britain has one of the oldest democracies in the world, having been largely run by a parliament since the 1600s.

    David Corn: Netanyahu's Speech; Mansplaining Iran to Obama

    Netanyahu's speech was designed to depict Obama and others working on the current deal as utterly naive and, with Israeli elections two weeks off, to burnish Netanyahu's credentials as a hawk who can school Obama and other American squishes on their own turf. And House Speaker John Boehner, who had invited Netanyahu to use Congress as a prop, had succeeded in firing a torpedo at the president's Iran talks. As unseemly as all this was—Netanyahu could have... More →

    Iran Dismisses Israel's Objections to Nuclear Deal

    An Iranian vice-president on Tuesday dismissed Israel's objections to nuclear talks, saying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not have much influence. - "I don't think (Netanyahu's voice) carries much weight," Massoumeh Ebtekar, who is vice-president for environmental affairs, told AFP during a visit to Paris. - "They are making their efforts to derail the deal but I think the more logical lobbies on both sides are looking forward to a solution. - "The...
