On September 29, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York, where he emphasized that Israel's war with Hamas and the current U.S.-led military campaign against ISIS stem from the same cause — the threat to the international order posed by militant Islam. Ahead of Netanyahu's meeting with President Obama, Natan Sachs outlines key points in the speech and argues that the prime minister will seek assurance that U.S. resolve on Iran has not diminished, while hoping that the bleak prospect for peace with the Palestinians does not top the agenda.
