As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu headed to the US in late September to meet President Barack Obama and to address the UN General Assembly, he intended to demand publicly once again clamping down on Iran’s nuclear weapons program and removing the threat of Syria’s chemical weapons.

The pro-Israel Wall Street Journal reported, however, that in a private conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Netanyahu expressed his readiness and even encouraged the US administration to reach a diplomatic solution – accept Russia’s compromise – to dismantle Syria’s chemical arsenal, and thus make the threat of a military strike redundant.
