"President Barack Obama met Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who earlier thanked members of Congress for supporting Israel. Obama and Netanyahu met for three hours at the White House, CNN reported. The meeting came amid tensions between Washington and Tel Aviv over Israel's decision to build new Jewish housing in disputed parts of East Jerusalem -- a decision the Obama administration has urged Israel to reconsider. The White House is trying to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians."
