Dems give Israeli ambassador earful over Netanyahu speech

Washington: Israel's ambassador to the United States has gotten an earful from a half-dozen House Democrats angered by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's acceptance of a Republican invitation to address Congress next month.

Ron Dermer met privately with seven Jewish Democrats today to discuss Netanyahu's plans for a March 3 speech on Iran.

A senior congressional aide says the lawmakers complained about the escalating partisanship surrounding the speech.

House Speaker John Boehner's invitation came with the Obama administration in negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program. Boehner's move has angered the White House and Democrats.

The aide spoke was not authorized to publicly discuss private sessions and spoke condition of anonymity.
