The Israeli media sported banner headlines this morning proclaiming that VIce President Joe Biden's goal during his visit here this week will be to force Prime MInister Netanyahu to stand down on Iran.
I just spent the evening at Netnayhu's father, Prof. Benzion Netanyahu's 100th birthday party. Prof. Netanyahu ended the evening with a short address in which he stated that he is certain that Israel will stand up to Iran and win. The Prime Minister very ostentatiously went over his father's speech with him before he gave it and walked him up and down the steps to the stage at the Begin Center where the event was held.
I certainly emerged from the evening with a strengthened belief that our leader will not bow to the Obama administration.
