As the date for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at US Congress draws near, there are serious criticism about the necessity for his visit.

Earlier this week, a number of Democrats urged US House Speaker John Boehner to postpone Netanyahu's Congress speech, saying the address threatens Iran’s nuclear talks.

The upcoming speech has been criticized by top American officials because it has not been consulted with President Barack Obama.

Meanwhile, President Obama said he has serious differences with Netanyahu on Iran’s nuclear program and warned him against souring negotiations with Tehran.
