Programming Note: Don't miss Greta Van Susteren's interview with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Thursday at 7p/2a ET on "On the Record."
Ed Henry reported from outside the White House following a meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
After giving a tough speech against Iran at the United Nations on Monday, Netanyahu warned Obama not to loosen sanctions or make concessions to Tehran.
Henry said the president attempted to tout progress in the negotiations, but Netanyahu sounded like he was "having none of it," warning Obama that part of his legacy could be allowing Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.
Netanyahu expressed to the president that Iran is the much bigger long-term threat compared to ISIS, saying he "fervently" hopes that Iran will not become a nuclear power under Obama's leadership.
In his speech to the UN, Netanyahu slammed those who criticized Israel's military offensive against Hamas over the summer, but now praise Obama for going after ISIS.
"They evidently don't understand that ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree. ISIS and Hamas share a fanatical creed, which they both seek to impose well beyond the territory under their control,” he said.
