Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's invite to a liberal think tank that is closely affiliated with the Democratic Party has been a controversial topic in progressive circles.

The premier appeared at the Center for American Progress on Tuesday for a live question-and-answer session that was streamed live online.

The Israeli government and AIPAC successfully lobbied CAP to allow the prime minister to appear.

The premier's vocal criticism of the Obama administration's drive for a nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic as well as his pre-election disavowal of a two-state solution have earned him pariah status among progressives, many of whom were reportedly perplexed at the CAP's acquiescence to Jerusalem's request for an audience.

Netanyahu also bucked diplomatic protocol by colluding with the Republican leadership in arranging for a speech about the pitfalls of the Iran deal before a joint session of Congress, all without the knowledge of the Obama administration.
