3. Benjamin Netanyahu: 'People Are Trying To Draw Me Into The American Election'

WASHINGTON -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he knows people want him to say whether President Barack Obama or Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has better policies toward Israel, but he doesn't want to go there.

"I know that people are trying to draw me into the American election. I'm not going to do that," Netanyahu said during a Sunday appearance on CNN's "State of the Union."

"This is not an electoral issue. It is not based on any electoral consideration. I think there's a common interest of all Americans to stop Iran," he said. "What's guiding me ... is not the American political calendar. It's the Iran nuclear calendar."

"President Obama has said that he's determined to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and I appreciate that and I respect that." Asked again if Obama has thrown Israel under the bus by not being more firm with Iran -- a reference to a charge by Romney that Obama has "thrown allies like Israel under the bus" in his first term -- Netanyahu replied, "There is no bus."
