‘Netanyahu damaging Israel’s ties with US for one election campaign speech’

Yesh Atid leader and former finance minister Yair Lapid slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday regarding his upcoming speech in the US Congress which is set to take place on March 3, a few weeks before the March 17 Israel election.

On Wednesday, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu to address a special joint session of Congress. The White House said it was surprised that it had not been informed of the Netanyahu visit in advance – either by Boehner or by Israeli officials – calling it a breach of protocol.
