YNET: Netanyahu to meet Obama in November
PM and US President will meet in Washington on November 9 for the first time since the Iran deal was signed.
Associated Press and Yitzhak Benhorin, 09.16.15
After months of chilly relations, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet at the White House on November 9, to talk about the Iran nuclear deal that Israel's government has harshly criticized and tried, without success, to block.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the leaders also would discuss efforts to counter ISIS's activities in the Mideast. He called the meeting a demonstration "of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, as well as our unprecedented cooperation to further enhance Israel's security."
It will be the first formal meeting between Obama and Netanyahu in months.
Obama pointedly refused to see Netanyahu in March, when the Israeli leader appeared before a joint session of Congress and harshly criticized the US-negotiated nuclear deal with Iran, Israel's enemy. US lawmakers had arranged Netanyahu's appearance without White House input.
Congressional Republicans have failed to block the deal from going forward. The international accord backed by the United States, Iran, and five world powers would curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions that have undercut Tehran's economy.
The United States has committed to provide more than $7.18 billion in security aid to Israel over the next year. Officials have floated the possibility of signing a new 10-year agreement about US-Israeli security cooperation. But Netanyahu's government has reacted tepidly to that proposal, out of concern that signing such a deal would suggest Israeli acquiescence to the nuclear accord.
Israeli police continue to clash with Palestinian protesters at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site during the Jewish new year holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet in November to discuss the Iran nuclear deal as well as other regional security issues, the White House said on Wednesday.
The Nov. 9 White House meeting will be the first for the two leaders since US-led diplomacy resulted in an Iran nuclear deal that Israel fiercely opposed.

What else is there to be discussed about Iran threat to Israel's existence? I believe that Iran's leader has already made his views crystal clear.
"of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, as well as our unprecedented cooperation to further enhance Israel's security."
Seriously? Do I really have to spell this one out? Yes, I guess I do.
If the U. S. has such "deep and enduring bonds" with Israel, then why did it attempt to sign its death warrant with its worthless Iran Deal?
I say attempt, because The Almighty is on our side.
I guess the U. S. Government would like to humiliate Israel even further, and to make it suffer, up until being wiped out by Iran. The funny thing is that I am not so sure that Iran is as adept as Israel at making surgical strikes on its enemies. This begs the question, just how many pseudostinians will be wiped out in the process?
The Iranians and religious pseudostinians do not care, because they think that they will simply end up in Heaven, welcomed as martyrs (חו״ח).
At least the Israeli Government is smart enough, just barely, to react "tepidly" to a 10 year buy into American thralldom. A one year bribe seems to be all it is willing to accept,...for now. And, what exactly does it think it is going to get out of it anyway? More money to be forcibly spent on American products and overpriced military equipment?
Israel should hold out for something much more valuable: a commitment by the U. S. to buy Israeli products, to combat BDS, which Israel claims that it has already begun to feel.
But, I digress...
So, what do I believe will Netanyahu and Obama really be discussing?
Besides Obama trying to pump Netanyahu for information about his meeting with Vladamir Putin, they will be discussing the impending release of Jonathan Pollard, 12 days later on November 21, and its implications for both national leaders.
What secrets does he possess?
What could happen if he reveals them?
How do they work together to keep him quiet?
November 9 = 11/9, or in the rest of the world 9/11.
