The New York Times criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech at the UN General Assembly, calling it "aggressive" and saying that Netanyahu "seems eager for a fight," in an editorial posted on Tuesday night.

"Mr. Netanyahu has legitimate reasons to be wary of any Iranian overtures, as do the United States and the four other major powers involved in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program," the Times editorial said.

"But it could be disastrous if Mr. Netanyahu and his supporters in Congress were so blinded by distrust of Iran that they exaggerate the threat, block President Obama from taking advantage of new diplomatic openings and sabotage the best chance to establish a new relationship since the 1979 Iranian revolution sent American-Iranian relations into the deep freeze."
