Netanyahu’s Commitment = Settlements > Iran

To the current Israeli government, the Iranian nuclear program is an extremely serious threat. Previous Israeli governments have also had the same view, but no government has emphasized and highlighted this threat more than the current government. Netanyahu’s government has also reiterated its commitment time and again to international efforts underway in the UN and elsewhere to isolate Iran.

When it comes to rhetoric, this is absolutely true.

But in reality, and judging from its actions, Netanyahu’s commitment to building and expanding settlements is stronger. It seems clear that in action, to him and his coalition partners, settlements are more important and are the priority and not Iran.

This topic, as well as other regional developments are discussed in Bloggingheads TV between Meir Javedanfar and Matt Duss from the Center for American Progress
