Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress might be his last major card to play before the March 17 elections, which is why he is determined to deliver it despite objections at home and by AIPAC.
Attack on mosque
An Israeli soldier gestures as Hebrew graffiti is seen on the wall of a mosque that was set alight in an overnight attack in Al-Jaba'ah village, near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, Feb. 25, 2015. Graffiti in Hebrew at the scene suggested the attack was carried out by a far-right Israeli group, officials said. Israeli police said they were investigating the attack. The Hebrew graffiti reads, "Revenge for the Land of Zion."
