Iran's nuclear program in a contentious address to the U.S. Congress, which he
said he is delivering out of concern for Israel's security.
The address has caused an uproar that has exposed tensions between Israel
and its most important ally, the United States. In accepting a Republican
invitation to address Congress, Netanyahu angered the White House, which was
not consulted with in advance of the invite, as well as Democrats who were

to attack its nuclear facilities.
Stopping Iran from building a nuclear bomb has become a defining challenge
for both President Barack Obama and Netanyahu, yet they have approached the
Netanyahu considers unacceptable any deal that doesn't end Iran's nuclear
program entirely. Obama appears to be willing to leave some nuclear activity
intact, backed by safeguards that Iran is not trying to develop a weapon.
Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
