Dermer invites UAE, Kuwait envoys to speech

Israel’s ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer invited the envoys from Arab countries United Arab Emirates and Kuwait to Netanyahu’s March 3 speech in front of Congress, according to The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg.

According to the report, Dermer emailed his colleagues personally to ask them to come, but was rebuffed.

In addition, Goldberg reports that Israeli National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen told at least two individuals in Washington that he wished the speech was not going ahead, and that he “can’t quite believe that Netanyahu has so dramatically written off a president with almost two years left in office.”
