AIPAC has a letter signed by hundreds of congressmen. It doesn't say much. Could they get a stronger one? Could they hint at impeachment? Obama will "consider" abstaining on a vote. Etc, etc. As a later step the USA might not send Israel some of the promised military supplies etc, but hold them ready to airlift to Israel if there is need. And Israel can mentioin the possibility of selling secret US technology to nations the USA does not want to have it.... All just exploring the possibilities, seeing how it might go if there is no agreement. Both sides have a lot to lose, but if one side has a trump then the eventual agreement will tend to go their way.
