With Israeli elections just days away, we gauge voter sentiment ahead of a contest that will likely return Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to power. But many voters are disillusioned, not excited about the prospects ahead.
John Boehner has rejected what he sees as Obama's demand to 'sit idly by' over Iran, inviting the Israeli PM to address Congress next month. The White House was unimpressed by the surprise guest speaker in the Capitol.
The Israeli prime minister has triumphed in his party primary by a landslide. Netanyahu is seeking a third straight term in office in legislative elections in March.
