ASHINGTON - US Republican Jeb Bush, a possible contender in the 2016 presidential contest, said on Wednesday that he is eager to hear a controversial speech by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the US Congress next month.

Bush, a former Florida governor, said he was surprised by the White House's reaction to the planned speech, organized by congressional Republicans. President Barack Obama has said he will not meet with the foreign leader to avoid the appearance of interfering in Israel's national elections on March 17.
