Dear PM Netanyahu: I may want my money back

Prime Minister Netanyahu just finished his speech at the Congress.
Meir Javedanfar
As I have stated before I respect and support his right to speak anywhere he wishes, but at a reasonable cost. His decision to sideline the President of the US so he can speak at the Congress could be too costly and detrimental to the interests of U.S – Israel relations.
Now that he has spoken, I have the following questions to ask:
1 – How many Congressmen/women did Netanyahu convince with his speech? 10, 20, 50?
This is an important question to ask, as the state of Israel has just taken a great risk by sidelining President of America, for the sake of this speech. The goal was to convince Congressmen/women to vote against a deal with Iran. So did Netanyahu achieve this goal? How many Congressmen/women did he convince?
2 – What if Khamenei says no to a deal?
We have to remember that Netanyahu took the great risk of sidelining the President of the United States for the sake of his speech, before Khamenei has even accepted the current deal. What if after all this, Khamenei says no to a deal? Then all of this would have been for nothing.
I agree with Netanyahu that Iran should stop calling for the annihilation of the state of Israel. Its repulsive and highly offensive to the citizens of this country.
The citizens of Israel deserve an answer for Question 1. Additionally, if Iran leader Khamenei ultimately says no to a deal, then as an Israeli tax payer, I will want my money back. Millions of Shekels would have been spent on this trip for nothing.
