Context

In his speech to the joint US House meeting in Washington on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made it clear that if needed, Israel would have to proceed alone to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, while urging President Obama to apply more sanctions on the Islamic Republic. The prime minister received a standing ovation from both the sides as he said, “In Judea and Samaria, the Jewish people are not foreign occupiers. This is the land of our forefathers.” However, he acknowledged that Israel “will have to give up parts of ancestral Jewish homeland for a genuine peace.” Netanyahu also expressed his willingness to work with Obama for peace despite the differences between the two.
