The tension is escalating today between President Obama and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu over how to deal with Iran's nuclear program.
The rift between the two leaders deepening.
After Israeli prime minister the Israeli prime minister reportedly asked the United States for a new show of support.
By setting red lines.
That if Tehran crossed would trigger a military response.
The United States refused.
And that refusal spark Netanyahu sharpest attacks in years that we've seen from Israeli leader against the White House listen here.
The world tells us through words.
There's still time.
And I say it.
-- -- -- Wait until when.
Those into the international community who refuse to put.
Red lines before -- Don't have a moral.
Right to place a red light before Israel.
Danny Danone is the deputy speaker for the Israeli parliament he's chairman of Israel's Likud.
Which is the same conservative party of the prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu mister deputy speaker welcome back to the program thank you great to be great to have you -- -- New York.
Let's talk about that and that seemed to be a direct response to the United States trying to pursue more diplomatic options.
Before pulling military putting military options.
Legitimately on the table is that what was happening.
The clock is ticking and we know that they running walking very fast and -- -- -- awards to come here to Washington don't and to us President Obama you want us to wait.
-- -- -- What you gonna do in the future and I think President Obama decided not to -- side.
We cannot wait for ever we look what's happening today in Iran but with what's happening in media for the -- -- We cannot allow them to become you -- I want to ask you about that because there was a report yesterday out of the Israeli media that mr.
Netanyahu had requested a meeting with President Obama and had been denied and they described it as the low point.
It I -- a new low in relations between mr.
Netanyahu and mr.
Obama is that true to the prime minister request a meeting with the White House.
Department of things come to the UN general assembly he was speaking the UN.
But he wants to me that book that put them to discuss that -- issue with him we -- -- we need to think to get him and think together and even -- started to -- -- but what's -- thinking -- that -- wonderful President Obama.
I multiplied in a new book I write about it that President Obama.
Decided from the beginning to adapt and hopeful to -- even you have to leave it to Egypt Saudi Arabia -- -- -- to Israel.
In order -- now when we knew we -- in the course of the moment.
You spending -- out of -- through this is another declaration of we don't see reductions.
You say the prime minister wants to come meet with President Obama the two men reportedly spoke last night what they did misspeak -- was confirmed by the White House for over an hour.
But the White House says that there was never our request for mr.
Netanyahu to meet with President Obama in Washington.
What I am sure you would be it would have asked the prime minister he's coming into town in two week's time but I know that -- -- -- Needs and I think maybe Connecticut before the United States can speak about what's happening immediately if I don't let's -- -- very -- with his campaign.
But you can multiple -- or neglect.
-- amazing to me that if do you feel like that is happening.
We food that is happening and I think that the Obama would like to maybe -- eventful -- or -- -- -- but look what's happening if you ignore those fulfills.
The coming after you nobody -- and then that back in Egypt in the media and but it happened this today.
Because the -- level to anything but don't care about this cycle for elections in the US.
They'll walking and -- went up a fake it in me to fight back and.
We've seen Israel as as one of our strongest allies and now it's.
More and more appearing to be perhaps our only ally in the Middle East especially given what's happening in Egypt which which had been strong ally to the United States.
Do -- do you feel that it is in the United States.
Interests to be forging an even stronger relationship with Israel right now and and and to have Israel's back more than ever.
Even -- -- only an ally of the United States who got the same values not not the same interest -- the time but not a democracy.
You know he's become without upstream if you thought the -- a window or the solution that we -- -- forces making -- -- to me -- Egypt.
You just gave it give a lot of money.
We got money that banks are borrowing from doing its -- -- finally diesel submarines would be used against Israel all of the US.
There is this a theory last question minister Netanyahu doesn't like mr.
Obama and is trying to set him up to look bad prior to the election.
Because there can be no great political outcome for President Obama in a meeting.
Netanyahu is that true you know it was -- -- -- what very well.
-- nothing -- -- on me I'm not a Democrat or Republican thing with prime minister Netanyahu.
We -- -- Israelis and what will too good that we the American people in the White House but frankly speaking.
We think that to date President Obama decided not to walk we to Israel is trying to be -- police say he doesn't fool.
Bishop -- speaker thank you so much for being here thank you updated on all the that's what's the name of the book you've been -- to prevail I think Easter season.
