Benjamin Netanyahu’s reaction to the firebombing of a Palestinian home that killed a toddler and severely burned his brother and parents was swift, sincere and strong.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has unswervingly – and correctly -- insisted that the Iranian nuclear threat is a global problem and should not be allowed to be portrayed as an Israeli issue.  Shifting the focus to Israel would be harmful to the Jewish state and undermine the campaign to de-nuke the ayatollahs, he said.

Good advice.  So why didn’t he take it?

Benjamin Netanyahu declared war on the Iran nuclear agreement and launched a major lobbying campaign to bury the hated deal crafted by his nemesis, Barack Obama. 

The Prime Minister will be meeting every American politician who comes to Israel during the August congressional recess and working the phones with the rest of them.  He's not only mobilized his government but his political allies, particularly the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
