Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) criticized US President Barack Obama for saying in his speech to AIPAC Sunday that too much bluster played into Iranian hands and suggesting that it led to higher gas prices.

"There is a saying that it's easier to watch a fire from far away," Kara said. "We are facing an existential threat, not the US. If Israel doesn't bluster, the US will also be in danger, because Iran's missiles will reach them too. Israel is doing everything possible to keep the world safe, and it's unfortunate that the White House doesn't see things the way we see them here."
