morning to the pro-israel group apac. both speeches are expected to be highly critical of negotiations over iran's nuclear program. netanyahu believes the program which iran says is peaceful poses a threat to israel. let's bring in erin mcpike. >> reporter: benjamin netanyahu will speak in a few hours, but this rift has been growing. we heard democrats speak out on this including senator dianne feinstein who was on "state of the union" on sunday morning calling netanyahu arrogant. >> he doesn't speak for me on this. >> does that bother you when he says he speaks for all of you? >> i think the jewish community is different from each other.
there are different points of view. i think that arrogance does not befit israel. >> reporter: we learned that the u.s. ambassador samantha power will focus her speech on the relationship between the u.s. and israel. however, she is speaking just after netanyahu does so it could be a little bit awkward. the united states has tried to keep an open dialogue with israel around the trip. secretary of state john kerry spoke by phone on sunday with netanyahu about the negotiations over iran between the u.s. and iran iran. we should get more details in the coming days. john and christine. the obama administration argues is it trying to ease the friction with israel. the speaker is defending his invitation and blasting the
administration for detearriorating the relationship with israel. >> they certainly made it worse over the last five or six weeks. the threat coming from iran and the iranians with a nuclear weapon is a threat to the region and threat to the united states and a threat to the rest of the world. it is a serious issue and we're not going to resolve the issue by sticking our heads in the sand. the prime minister can talk about this threat better than anyone. the united states congress needs to hear from him. >> congress is not the only audience for the prime minister's speech. in some ways, it is not the most important audience. that would be the people of israel. prime minister benjamin netanyahu faces an election in just two weeks. a lot of people think this is pure electioneering right now.
standing by for us is orrin leberman. >> reporter: the timing is not coincidence. it will be 6:00 p.m. here. those are the right are netanyahu was party and those are the other end of the political spectrum seeing it as a valuable opportunity to warn america and europe about the threat of a nuclear iran to the security of israel. there are those on the left who see this as a political move. we have more on the contest on the speech. we know it focuses on iran but we learned that netanyahu at least believes more about the negotiations than congress. he intends to tell congress what he knows with two goals in mind.
the first of the goals is to put pressure on the white house and put pressure on the deal and make sure that keeps israeli's security in mind and push back the march 24th deadline which is three weeks from date of the speech. >> oren liebermann thank you. happening today, happening this morning in fact secretary of state john kerry will meet with iranian counterparts in switzerland. this is the eighth round on the iran nuclear program. as prime minister netanyahu speaks to congress about the program, secretary of state kerry will figure out a way to stem it with iran. that is the real back drop of the entire trip by the israeli prime minister. isis has released 19 christian hostages.
kidnapped in syria last week. the syrian hostages released on the self-proclaimed isis court. let's bring in ben wedeman live from erbil, iraq. ben, what do we know about the isis "court" released the hostages? >> reporter: it is not entirely clear. there have been contacts with the tribal leaders in northeastern syria and isis to win their release. the rest of them which are approximately 200 people who were taken hostage early last week. their fate is still unknown. we understand it will be decided by one of the courts. of course in the past the courts have not exactly been a pinnacle of mercy, so to speak. this is a good start. at this point, we really don't know what they will decide
regarding the remaining hostages. in the past we have learned that others have been sold as slaves. >> ben, how does the kidnapping fit in the strategy? promote terror or punish groups? why this kidnapping rampage? >> reporter: certainly what we know is that the syrian christians in northeastern syria who have been on the sidelines of the war in syria for years, saw isis coming. they know isis reputation. the men took up arms. this is partly why so many were kidnapped. many of the men had gone to the front and these villages were relatively lightly defended. definitely it has a lot to do with the fact these people are fighting back. they have taken up arms and
clearly this is not a conflict where there is a middle ground to be reached. it is essentially fight or die christine. >> ben wedeman in erbil. we are learning new information about the british voice of isis nicknamed by his captives jihadi john. we are live in london with details about that person in ten minutes. round two of the political fight to fund homeland security. money runs out in five days after the stopgap fix. republicans, a lot of people are blaming republicans for the stalemate. they still trying to keep the funding tied to reversing the immigration reforms. the senate has approved the full year with no strings attached. time for an early start on your money. a good start for the first day in march. february folks, it was fantastic for stocks. the best month for the s&p 500 since october, 2011.

days ago before the killing of nemtsov. this is the really big question i think, that we don't have the answer to but facing russia right now. will this be a turning point in the politics of russia? will this killing be a moment at which we look back and say this is the point in which russians considered all of the things that nemtsov talked about in life? the corruption and brutality in russia? will it send a message to silence the opposition? after all, what this says really if you are opposed to the kremlin and opposed to what vladimir putin says this is what could happen to you. that's a very potent message. that may serve to actually further silence the opposition in russia as well. we don't know which way it will go. >> matthew chance in moscow where the tribute sits for

contradictory images. another journalist here said a couple of years before he left for syria, emwazi contacted him by e-mail. saying he was a dead man walking. under pressure from the british intelligence services. this organization cage activist organization cage, released e-mails exchanged between them and emwazi. the narrative has expanded. emwazi feels he was put under pressure by british intelligence services. they tried to recruit him. people here familiar with the way counterterrorism officials work in the country, if that was happening, there was a reason for it. either he was a terrorist himself or he was very close to somebody that mi-5 the british intelligence agency wanted to know more about and they were trying to turn emwazi into an informant. he was with a group of young men in west london where he lived
with connections to al shabaab in somalia. they were raising funds to send support for their fight. he had tried to get there himself. he was associated with some of the group of men who tried to bomb the london bus network in july of 2005. he was associated with another person who was fighting with al shabaab in somalia who went on to be killed in january of 2012 in a u.s. drone strike. this is a complex picture drawn up. the isis defector if you will has the most recent insight and chilling insight. this was just a year or so before jihadi john as he was known to all of us started the brutal beheadings. >> did this defector say jihadi john was religious? >> reporter: that is something we heard from the community.
in recent years, he began to wear more islamic clothing. he was known for wearing trendy clothing. in the years before he left to go to syria, he began wearing more traditional clothing and going to the mosque more often. this image emerges of someone more religious. >> nic, thanks. happening now israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in washington. he will speak tomorrow about the nuclear deal with iran. that move has created a lot of controversy. we will break it down next. septic system breakdowns affect over 1 million homes a year and can cost thousands of dollars to repair. thankfully, rid-x has enzymes to break down waste and time-released bacteria to reduce tank buildup. rid-x. #1 in septic maintenance. and now for rvs too!

valuable opportunity to warn america and the world about the threats posed on israel. now what people seem to agree upon here politics and public the content of the speech and the threat it would pose to israel. if this is the best way to warn everybody and influence possibly influence the negotiations. we have learned more about the content of the speech. our cnn team traveling to washington with netanyahu spoke with the senior administration official. they say they have insight into the deal and they want the u.s. congress to know about the insights. netanyahu's administration warns that the u.s. doesn't know enough. to put pressure on the administration to make sure any deal considers the state of israel and push back the march 24th deadline on the nuclear deal. that deadline is three weeks to

16 men and 3 women in addition to a man taken hostage a month ago. the reports we are getting out of northeast syria, where the kidnappings took place last week is that perhaps money exchanged hands to get their release. that most of the people are over the age of 50 and as far as for instance, isis slave markets, they may not be of high value. this is obviously good news for the syrian christian community in northeastern syria. keep in mind there still is as many as 200 people still unaccounted for and believed to be in the hands of isis. there were reports last week john that some of them had been transported to raqqah. the defacto capital of isis in syria. we know that particularly women, they tend to become slaves sold

was a cold lopener who wanted to appear in videos and described as odd and strange. we have nic robertson live in london. >> reporter: what is odd and strange is we get a divergent view of mohammed emwazi jihadi john. one of the british newspapers here spoken to his former employer a computer company in kuwait. the manager of that company said emwazi was his best employee. an excellent salesman. a nice man. we certainly heard that from the cage organization that has been highlighting his plight and essentially blaming what happened to him on harassment by british intelligence authorities. someone exchanging e-mails with emwazi three or four years ago. emwazi told him he was a dead man walking. he felt under pressure since he was under scrutiny in 2009.
people familiar said if he was drawing attention of the british authorities, it is because he was either a terrorist himself or was close to people in those terrorist circles and perhaps somebody the intelligence services hope they can turn into an informer to spy on other people. what we understand now about the group of young men associated with in london after getting the degree in computer studies at university he had ties to somalia. they were raising funds for them. some of the people he fought with al shabaab in somalia. one later went on to be killed in a u.s. drone strike. we learned that people in the network in london were associated with some of the london bombers from july of 2005. this is a more complete picture that we are getting. cold and odd.
that certainly fits with the profile we have come to know of jihadi john with that knife, john. >> nic robertson, thanks. the first syrian rebel group to receive weapons from the united states has collapsed after losing control of headquarters in aleppo. the group released a statement saying its movement has been dissolved dissolved. the affiliate claimed it lost weapons of u.s. missiles. and north korea fired two missile into the sea of japan and vowed retaliation as the united states and south korea started joint military exercises. this triggers a surge in tensions. the missile launches came with a warning from pyongyang, the military exercises would bring the divided korean peninsula to a brink of war. silicon valley is where the money is not for everyone.
