INU - While Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments about Iran at the UN General Assembly were predictable, one need not look to Israel for the perception that Iran is a threat to rival the Islamic State. That perspective has been repeatedly expressed by a number of American lawmakers, including Senator and possible Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who published an op-ed at Politico on Sunday harshly criticizing president Obama’s approach to diplomacy with Iran. Cruz emphasized that the IS situation does not diminish the importance of the Iran nuclear issue, the Washington Examiner reports.
