Netanyahu's gift to Obama jeopardized the 2800-year-old bond between two peoples

By Sheda Vasseghi During their most recent meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave President Barack Obama a copy of the Book of Esther as a symbol of his fears for Israel if the Islamic Republic of Iran becomes nuclear.
