Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's message before boarding his plane for Washington Sunday and his meeting Monday with US President Barack Obama is that Israel has successfully withstood strong pressure over the last few years, and will continue to do so.

"I am leaving for an important trip to the US," Netanyahu said before taking off for a five day visit to Washington and California. "I will meet President Obama, and we will discuss Iran and the diplomatic process. I will stand firm on Israel's vital interests, first and foremost security."

Over the past few years, Netanyahu said "Israel came under pressures, and we deflected them amid unprecedented regional turmoil. We maintained stability and security. That is the way it was, and that is the way it will be."
