Netanyahu may face questions about opposition to Palestinian state

WASHINGTON (AP) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
concludes his U.S. visit today with an appearance on Capitol Hill.
He's likely to face questions about his refusal to endorse the
creation of an independent Palestinian state and lay out his vision
of Mideast peacemaking.
A two-state solution is the cornerstone of international Mideast
policy.
Netanyahu will meet with House and Senate leaders and a group of
Jewish legislators.
He'll also try to make his case for strong action against Iran,
a day after President Barack Obama said the U.S. would not "have
talks forever" on stopping the Iranian nuclear program.
President Barack Obama waded deep into the tangle of Mideast
politics during four hours of talks with Netanyahu on Monday. He
told the Israeli leader to stop expanding Jewish settlements and
grasp the "historic opportunity" to make peace with the
Palestinians.
