VOI’s Dov Lipman criticizes President Obama for suggesting that it is wrong for Israel to interfere with a Congressional vote.
He points to the fact that, just a few weeks ago, the US Ambassador to Israel called MKs to convince them to vote in favor of the gas deal that the prime minister was bringing to the Knesset. This was an internal Israeli issue with ramifications for the US. The same right applies to Israel, says Dov, in relation to the vote in Congress on the nuclear deal with Iran: Because it has an impact on Israel, Israel has the right to get involved. listen now
