Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a rare appearance by a serving premier before the country's Supreme Court Sunday to defend a contentious natural gas deal.Critics say the agreement between the government and a consortium including U.S. firm Noble Energy, pushed by Netanyahu, overly favors the firms involved and have petitioned the court to block it.
