I am glad he is not attending. Anyone from the Israeli government should not attend.
I wish the USA was not attending.
General Jack D. Ripper: Mandrake, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?
Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: No, I don’t think I do, sir, no.
General Jack D. Ripper: He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
From article: “The prime minister has decided to cancel his trip to Washington to attend the nuclear conference next week, after learning that some countries including Egypt and Turkey plan to say Israel must sign the NPT,” the official said.
Maybe his deputy could get the blue flu when he arrives for the conference.
President Merkin Muffley: Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room.
I have that on my Personal Page. Its true. Leave strategic thinking to the Generals and think tanks.
I would advise the Israeli government to to send anyone.It is a total waste of their time.
BRING IT ON MF!
Where did Drudge get that photo of the One with Netanyahu? It’s embarrassing to have the leader of our country acting like a bigger jerk than Achhhhmanutjob.
A little off topic but I want to get it off my chest...
The picture Drudge has up of Obama and Netanyahu, really, really makes me angry!
At this point, his fears are justified.
Good. Why should he expose himself to further humilitation by Dear Leader, much less be a party to a policy that will without doubt, sooner rather than later, lead to the blow-up of the middle east? He shouldn’t even send a rep. “Obama’s little peace fest” (nice phrase) is more likely to lead us to war than anything we’ve ever done. Ironic, as gross stupidity so often is. God bless and keep Israel.
But look at Bibi. He looks like he’s smelling something bad (and he is).
Gosh that picture is infuriating!
My mother would slap my hand anytime I tried to point, it’s such bad manners!
Pointing and his other hand crammed in his pocket— he looks like he’s standing around on a college campus shootin’ the chit, not the leader of the greatest nation!
Obama is lucky Netanyahu has class and didn’t slap his hand for behaving like an unmannered man-child.
This is as bad as the street shake he gave Chavez.
Can’t he TRY to exhibit some decorum?
This is an intentional display of arrogance and intimidation. There is no interest in decorum or class...this is a well orchestrated performance. God help us.
lol...we knew what you meant. :)
Smart move to send a low-ranking Israeli representative to the meeting. That is what is known as a “snub” to Obama.
Maybe the representative should let it slip during the conference that he’s just the janitor and they sent him to clean up the wrong mess.
Obama's foreign policy goes like this.
Sums it pretty nicely.
And I’m sorry that’s so true.
Well, that about says it.
I have never in my life witnessed such an ill-bred, rude, condescending individual.........it really makes me ill. And then I think this guy is the Pres....shameful!
Netanyahu looks like he’s ready to rip his head off.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Per previous threads, Turkey and Egypt claim the ambush was coming from the Great Satan, not the Arab world.
Not sure 'Progressives' come any other way; but Obama does earn special merit; no question. They are so ugly; they reinforce each other and so are immune to just how awful they are. Am not sure they can ever 'get' just how far removed they are, from civility.
It seems as if 0bama is deliberately setting Ezekiel 38 in motion.
The way he acts with ALL foreign leaders seem to be the same — except the Islamic leaders to whom he BOWS!!!
Check out the pics I put up on another thread of Obama and Russian President Medvedev...
It’s infuriating for sure though - ESPECIALLY as Israel is supposed to be our ALLY - NOT our enemy and Obama is treating Bibi with such horrid contempt... Literally makes me sick to my stomach1
