Netanyahu Speech at US Congress to Iran's Benefit

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming address to the US Congress on Tehran's nuclear program will exacerbate tensions in the US political arena and in Israel's relations with world's countries, which will ultimately benefit Iran, an official with the presidential office wrote on his twitter account, ICANA reported on Saturday.
Hamid Aboutalebi pointed to the following six "rifts" that are likely to be deepened by Netanyahu's speech:
1- Between the two major US political parties (Republicans and Democrats). This will break their consensus on their hostile policies against Iran;
2- Between the US Congress and the administration. This will intensify the differences within the ruling system and tensions within the United States;   
3- Between the US and Israel. According to Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Netanyahu's speech will be "destructive to the fabric of the relationship" between the two countries;  
4- Between the US and Europe on the contents of the negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program;
5- Within Israeli society and in the ruling system in the occupied territories. This will inflict "strategic damage" on Israel's next administration;
6- Between belligerence and pacifism. This will create a tendency in the international community toward Iran's peaceful policies and countering Islamophobia and Iranophobia.
Aboutalebi reasoned that the widening of these rifts will be in Iran's interest, since "his speech will be ignored like the one he made at the UN General Assembly in 2012, depicting a cartoon, and this will benefit regional peace and stability," he noted.
The public are eager to hear "the message of peace and stability", the official said, adding, "This message is conveyed via Iran's peaceful negotiations and resistance not Netanyahu's speech," and "no one buys the message of war and insecurity any longer."
US Republicans have started a "game" which will undermine the "interactions" between the two main US political parties, he concluded.
