Herzog: If I was Netanyahu, I would nix Congress speech and hold intensive talks with Obama

Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog on Thursday accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of turning Israel into a partisan issue in US politics.

Speaking at a press conference with his Zionist Union co-leader Tzipi Livni, Herzog took aim at Netanyahu for turning down an invite to meet with Senate Democrats while he is in Washington to address the Congress next week.

"We recently heard very harsh language from senior US officials, but what most bothers me is that Netanyahu refused to meet with the Democrats," Herzog said.
