Posted on 11/11/2009 9:15:40 AM PST by RobinMasters
JERUSALEM The White House has not released any official photos of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting this week with President Obama just one of several signs indicating a rift between the two leaders.
Netanyahu arrived in the U.S. last weekend to address a convention of Jewish leaders. The prime minister's office had for weeks attempted to schedule a meeting with Obama, but no meeting was officially confirmed until Netanyahu was already on a plane on his way to Washington, sources in Netanyahu's office said.
The only photos available to the media so far have been pictures of Netanyahu entering and exiting the White House. Any official photos taken of Obama and Netanyahu have not been released.
Neither Netanyahu nor Obama's team had scheduled any press conferences after the meeting, contrary to usual custom. Sources close to Netanyahu told WND the Israeli team canceled media briefings at the request of the U.S. administration.

Rahm? Oh he’s the real president.
Doesn’t want to inflame the islamic jihadists.
Tells the world all they need to know.
The White House isn’t being very subtle about it, are they? This is a Gordon Brown level of dissing, without the denials.
I am The Won.”
“Heads, I win. Tails, you lose.”
Stay strong, Bibi.
When you’re an addict you have to suck up to the dealer, no matter how much you get abused between fixes, because the fix trumps everything else. In this case the drug is American dollars and Bibi has billions of reasons to put up with Zero’s BS.
Great! I hope Bibi told Obama to go take a flying leap!
That's illogical and extreme, even for the First African president.
It is more subtle and insidious than that.
Hussein wants to signal his muslim masters that he will not dignify recording any deference of any kind to a jew.
But bowing to a muslim ruler by the president of the United States of America is OK.
Puerile, ignorant and disgusting and unacceptable doesn't begin to describe it.
I think Obama, Rahm, Jarrett and Ax have all tried to intimidate and cajole Bibi regarding the West Bank settlements, and the tough Israeli PM will have none of it. I’m positive there have been very angry and loud shouting matches in the WH, probably between Rahm and Bibi for the most part. The Obama Adminstration will definitely be remembered for, among other things, it’s disgraceful behavior towards Israel. Pathetic.
Bibi: “Look son, you’re a one-termer. Do not begin to lecture me about the Middle East. As with everything you opine on, you have no real understanding of the situation.
You are no king, you are only a steward, keeping the seat warm for what will hopefully be a grown-up as the next American President. I do not seek, nor do I need permission from a steward to protect the lives of the Jews—I already HAVE that permission from someone with a higher pay-grade.”
Just maybe it was the other way around.
Maybe the fact that the U.S. is officially recognizing Iran's right to nuclear power has something to do with what's going on.
We have to be fair to Obama, maybe his Imam told him that muslims arent supposed to be photographed with Jews. Maybe it’s a fatwa,,,
People might not like Obama, but right now they like republicans even less. We *really* need someone better than Huckafraud and the Rominator. No it isn't Sarah. Obama would tear her apart.
Sir please remember not all Americans are classless.
BTW.......Wishful thing here, but could you imagine these 2 at the helm????
Sheik Obama isn’t above using Jews to do his dirty work.
