Israel Blasts U.S. Over Iran

TEL AVIV—The rift between top U.S. and Israeli leaders appeared to deepen Tuesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leveled the sharpest attacks in years by an Israeli leader against Washington, over differences on how to address Iran's nuclear program. Later Tuesday, both governments said President Barack Obama wouldn't agree to an Israeli request for a meeting between the two leaders at the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York this month. The Israelis said their request was refused; the White House said there was a scheduling conflict and there could be a meeting elsewhere at another time. Mr. Netanyahu has asked the U.S. to set 'red lines' that if crossed would trigger a military response. .The rupture was the result of months of growing Israeli frustration with Mr. Obama's approach to Iran, in which he has stressed diplomacy and punitive sanctions. Mr. Netanyahu has exhorted the Obama administration in vain to set "red lines" that, if crossed, would trigger a U.S. military response.
