Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s unforgettable quote that “Israel has no foreign policy, only domestic policy” was never as accurate as now. It is now less than a week before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial speech at the US Congress on March 3, and the commotion in Israel and Washington is reaching new heights. There is one issue in Israel on which there is a wall-to-wall consensus: The emerging agreement between the world powers and Iran is a “bad agreement.” Not only for Israel, but for the entire free world.

Great battles are now being waged around the question of what to do, and the question is dramatically affected by the fact that in addition to all this, Israel will be holding elections on March 17 and the current situation is a political standoff.
