Obama snubbed Netanyahu for dinner with Michelle and the girls, Israelis claim
Daily Telegraph ^ | 03/25/2010 | Adrian Blomfield

Posted on 03/25/2010 9:22:39 AM PDT by propertius

Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday.

The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.

The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country's relationship with the United States was over.

...

When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."

As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."

Here’s an Open Question for the American Jewish Democratic Voter:

Are you enjoying this circus, put on by your president, at Israel’s expense?

(Just curious.)

Thanks Obama for bringing God’s curse on us.

Israel has MUCH more stalwart friends and support among conservative Catholics and Christians, than the typical American Jew.

Looks like my prediction from Nov 2008 was wrong. I should have included Israel too.

My Nov 14 2008 prediction about the coming EU disillusionment with Obama

"My guess is that the EU is going to be shocked when they realize just how arrogant Obama is. I’m sure they, in their own condescending way, are thinking “Ah, finally a man we can work with! One who will listed to us and be guided by our nuanced knowledge of world affairs!”. Instead after they deal with Obama they will come away angry about being bossed around by him. He thinks he’s king of the world now. He doesn’t want some sniveling beaurocrat in Belgium telling him what to do! They will take his instructions or else!"

We know how God values the Jewish people, and how He hates pride.

I pray that the Lord removes these idiots from power before it’s too late. Maybe the House can initiate impeachment proceedings when the Republicans return to power early next year.

Does anyone now believe that OBAMA is NOT a Muslim who HATES ISRAEL?
And Ninety Percent of Jewish Americans Voted for OBOZO!
Maybe they will wake up before its too late again!
But Netanyahu and Israel shouldn’t feel alone!
OBAMA HUSSEIN Hates AMERICA Equally! In fact, it appears he Hates Everyone who isn’t a Communist Dictator...like Chavez,Castro, Chairman Mao, Stalin, Lenin just to name a few of his obvious Hero’s and Role Models......:-(

For those of you that might know, how much does Israel depend upon the United States for its survival? If the United States terminated all financial aid with Israel, would Israel collapse? How much does Israel need us? I am asking these questions for a reason. I wonder why Israel does not tell Obama to jump up its a**?

“Are you enjoying this circus, put on by your president, at Israel’s expense?”

My Jewish friends will bluster about how concerned they are about Israel and how important being Jewish is to them and then in November they will vote Liberal Democratic again. When push comes to shove they are always more Liberals/Democrats than they are Jews! I have repeatedly told many of them how full of crap they are.

I once had coffee with Brigadier General Natke Nir and he spoke of the love and support he knows Conservative Christians have for Israel. He told of his many trips to America and the commonality of interests and heritage we have. He greatly appreciates and loves American conservatives. He just shook his head when I mentioned American Jewery. People of character know what is going on.

Agreed. Bibi’s aides should have persuaded him not to have come.

On the other hand, maybe Bibi thought that his speech at AIPAC and the warm welcome he received from Republicans and Congress would have shown Obama the level of support he (Netanyahu) enjoys in the United States.

This is typical of the way Obama is treating our allies. The Japanese are re-evaluting their relationship, Obama chose Chavez over Honduras, Russia over Poland, the Pali’s over Israel, etc.

Israel had to know their recent actions would be less than well received by Obama. They seem to be deliberately baiting this naive US President into a confrontation. Typically Israel is several moves ahead of everyone, and thus far Obama has been several moves behind.

When Israel and China relations begin to warm the US had better pay VERY close attention.

When you start by doing serious damage to US-Israel relations, it is not difficult to imagine a scenario that is much worse then Obama-care.

Bibi is going to appear very weak though if he does not take Obama to the woodshed.

If he will not stand up to zero and allow himself and his country to be treated this way it only shows weakness to Muslims - and that is EXACTLY why Obama is doing this.

He wants Israel to appear weak and under American thumb to embolden their enemies to attack her.

If this was Tuesday night Michelle wasn’t even there...she was on an eating tour of NYC.

Michelle Obama has a feast in NYC

Last Updated: 9:49 AM, March 25, 2010

First Lady Michelle Obama dined at Aquavit, the Scandi navian eatery on East 55th, as she continued her culinary tour of the city Tuesday. “She came by with a group of friends,” says a spy. “She was wearing a sleeveless black dress and had the tasting menu.” Obama tapped Aquavit chef Marcus Sam uelsson to cook last year’s state dinner at the White House for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. While on her spring break here, the first lady also stopped by Dinosaur Bar-B-Q in Harlem and Grimaldi’s pizzeria in Brooklyn.
