Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called Iran “the greatest threat to world peace,” and has become increasingly vocal about the nation’s uranium enrichment program. He recently asked the U.S. to take a hard stance against Iran, but on Monday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton maintained that the U.S. “would not set a deadline in further talks with Iran, saying there was still time for diplomacy to work.”
In a news conference on Tuesday, Netanyahu became more aggressive, saying, “Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.”
Now, the White House is telling Reuters that the president will not meet with Netanyahu when he visits the U.S. later this month:
An Israeli official told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Netanyahu’s aides had asked for a meeting when he visits the United Nations this month, and “the White House has got back to us and said it appears a meeting is not possible. It said that the president’s schedule will not permit that.”
Netanyahu has met with Obama on all the Israeli leader’s U.S. trips since 2009.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
