This Week's Program:

Bibi vs. Obama
President Obama has said he wants “real breakthroughs” on Iran’s nuclear program and Israeli-Palestinian peace. But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s triumph in Tuesday’s elections promises Israeli resistance on both of these fronts, and guarantees difficult diplomacy between two leaders. On this week’s HashtagVOA, experts covering Iran and the Mideast discuss how the fray impacts Iran Nuclear Talks, regional stability and beyond.
