Joe Biden's snub to Netanyahu as he arrives 90minutes late for dinner in middle of row with Israel
Daily Mail ^ | 3/12/10 | Mail Foreign Service

Posted on 03/12/2010 9:36:45 AM PST by Nachum

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last night by arriving 90 minutes late to a scheduled dinner.

Mr Biden's late arrival was in response to Israel announcing 1,600 new homes will be built in disputed east Jerusalem during his visit to the region.

He sharply rebuked the Israeli step - which came just after the Palestinians agreed to a new round of indirect peace talks under U.S. mediation after a 14-month lapse.

Netanyahu should schedule the attack on Iran to start ten minutes into his next meeting with Joe Biden. “Oops, we meant to tell you in advance, but Joe was late.”

Bibi is studiously looking for a high-profile terrorist target to have Mossad assiassinate while Joe is in town.

Never attribute to malice what can be sufficiently explained by stupidity.

Bibi should insist that the indirect peace meetings mediated by the U.S. will only occur if Biden is present (during the parliamentarian’s rulings on reconcilliation). Then Biden cannot overrule in the Senate.

Benjamin better wake up. He should not be shocked. I would have started dinner without the rude bastard!

In any political or intellectual contest, Bibi would eat Biden’s lunch - so, why not his dinner, too?

Just wonderin’.

Lord above, how embarassing it is to have a whole posse of petty little spiteful queens running our government.

I had to read the article to see if they waited for him before sitting down to dinner. Too bad they just didn’t sit down at the announced time and eat.

I hope Joe apologized to the chef.

Maybe Biden’s motorcade ran over another person and they had to stop and clean up the mess.

The whole Obama administration are classless jerks with no manners, honor, civility, or trustworthiness. When we get this bunch of trash out of our House, we will have your back once again, Israel. Be patient, November 2010 is almost here and 2012 well, then, we will totally clean out the swamp!

No kidding! There is absolutely no excuse for this and between the Office of the VP and the State Department protocol offices, I’d have to think this could never occur by accident.

I wonder if he gave PM Netanyahu an iPod with Obama’s speeches on it?

But some liberals in Israel say:
Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Israel as a friend. As a matter of fact, he is considered to be the greatest friend of Israel ever to have been a member of the U.S. Senate.

--Shimon Shiffer in Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth, two days ago, headline: "Biden: You’re Jeopardizing Regional Peace", according to Laura Rosen in the Politico yesterday.

Truth and delusion.

“I would have started dinner without the rude bastard!”

And serve him warmed up leftovers.

But we never have expected any propriety from this crowd.

I love it. Look at the picture. Bibi is crushing Joe’s hand. I think the message is if you show up late again I will break your hand and every digit.

Perhaps we should suggest that Nurse Diesel (Cloris Leachman) of the High Anxiety movie be in charge of dinner guest protocol. She handled a late dinner guest (MONTAGUE - Harvey Korman) correctly, who then responded “Only seconds late. You’re so strict.”

I’d prefer that Bibi crush Joe’s balls.

But wait! Joe doesn’t have any....like the whole, worthless Oblama/Osama administration.

“You’re so strict.””

And that was when the Chief of Protocol’s agreed, and then reached for the boots and the whip.

The Israeli move was stupid, as Bibi acknowledges. A talented diplomat could use that to his advantage, instead Joe Biden acts like a child.

I think I’d have left him a bagel with a note that we had a grand time, too bad he was late.

Maybe he was taking advantage of the senior’s early bird special at a nearby Rachel’s Pancake House.
