Obama Offended by Netanyau, but Not How You May Think
January 24, 2015 11:06pm PST
In an ironic twist, the Obama Administration, which has repeatedly refused to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister, thinks Netanyahu has “spat in the face” of the President by accepting John Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. The only part of this story that is more ironic is the fact that the same President who orders drone strikes and amnesty without going to Congress is offended by….wait for it….Netanyahu’s breach of protocol in not seeking White House approval before a diplomatic visit. That’s rich.
According to the Times of Israel, a senior U.S. official practically threatens the candid Prime Minister by saying,“There are things you simply don’t do. He spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.”
Honestly, Americans should be horrified at the manner in which this POTUS has treated our ally. What price could Obama be demanding? A Palestinian state? A nuclear armed Iran? An army of ISIS militants, perhaps?
A country so small, but mighty, as Israel stands up to the most vehement, unwarranted hatred imaginable on a daily basis. Obama did little more than stiffen Netenyahu’s resolve to speak before a newly elected, pro-Israel Congress. The stern, straight talking PM of Israel is likely having a good laugh at the most embarrassing President the U.S. has ever had the misfortune to elect.
Obama, who has no record of successful negotiations of any kind in any circumstance, is apparently demanding the pro-sanction stance of Netanyahu be toned down because the U.S. is in a critical phase with Iran. Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but negotiations over a nuclear Iran are more critical to Israel than any other country on the planet. How dare Obama even negotiate with this caliphate filled with Holocaust deniers and anti-semites.
The weakness of the POTUS is only comparable to that of the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry. His decision to run to the U.N. over every minor diplomatic matter is as spineless and distasteful as any practice that weakens American sovereignty. It appears Kerry will also actively avoid Netanyahu when he arrives in March. Pathetic.
White House Spokesman Earnest says,“We haven’t heard from the Israelis directly about the trip at all.” He added that the White House would “reserve judgment” about any possible face-to-face meeting until explanations are made. Explanations? explanations? Explain why the U.S. under the leadership of Obama has withdrawn from any meaningful presence in the middle east. Explain why our President panders to people who call us infidels and ignores our only real ally in the region. Explain the U.S.’s sudden interest in a Palestinian state. Explanations are, in fact, required to mend this relationship, but it would appear Obama and his band of village idiots misunderstand to whom and for what said explanations should be made.
“The typical protocol would suggest that the leader of a country would contact the leader of another country when he is traveling there. That is certainly how President Obama’s trips are planned,” explained Earnest. Earnest, can you explain how the President’s days are spent? Can you explain why he spends more time on the golf course than in the briefing room? Does he get the permission of every world leader before he sends drones in to kill high value targets?
Most Americans are jealous of a leader so strong and patriotic as Netanyahu. The leader of our closest middle east ally should have an open invitation to speak in the U.S. to whomever he/she would like at practically any time. You are welcome here, sir, we apologize for the mistreatment you have encountered at the hands of the current occupant of the White House. Fortunately, his days are numbered there.
