Posted on 05/24/2011 11:13:36 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
Extreme left wing group Peace Now accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of racist motivation for standing up to U.S. President Barack Obama in a White House press briefing last week.
In an op-ed piece for Maariv, Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer called Netanyahus behavior unprecedented.
It was no coincidence, he explained, that the Prime Ministers Israeli arrogance broke records, and that sentences that are supposed to be said behind closed doors and in internal discussions were exhibited for all to see in a condescending and ugly manner.
Netanyahus supercilious and patronizing attitude in "scolding" Obama stems from the fact that Obama, the first black American president, is not part of the same social milieu as former presidents like Bush, Reagan and Clinton and the like, he went on. Netanyahu did everything he could to humiliate and hurt Obama, Oppenheimer told his Israeli readers. .....

Well, he did use the word “boy” a lot when addressing Urkel.
Naw, just kidding.
Oh yeah, it had absolutely nothing to do with Obama telling Israel that it must be divided to pre-67 borders./s
Here’s Bibi’s “racism” and “condescension”: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with United States President Barack Obama on Friday, one day after Obama gave a speech on the Middle East in which he called for a new Arab state in Judea and Samaria based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed upon swaps.
Netanyahu openly stated his own views on the Israeli-Arab conflict, and warned, A peace based on illusions will crash eventually on the rocks of Middle Eastern reality.
During the meeting Netanyahu flatly rejected the possibility of basing the borders of a Palestinian Authority-led Arab state on the 1967 lines, or 1949 armistice line.
While Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines, he said. These lines are indefensible, because they don’t take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes.

Arutz Sheva is our FNC.
Hey Oppenheimer, ya jackass, Obozo only looks black. He’s actually almost as white as you are!
The effects of modern day racism are nothing compared to the destructive power of excuse-ism...
For everybody that accuses US Jews of being lefty, understand that the same level of crazy exists in Israel, itself.
Playing the race card is a tacit admission that Dear Leader’s conduct is otherwise indefensible. But we knew that.
All my liberals friends are now falling back on the “racist” taunt if you disagree with the president
Is that all they got? If they’re charging racism, they pretty much concede the argument. If you’re dumb as a hammer, everyone looks like a racist nail.
Let’s try that: Anyone who disagrees with Bibi is a Jew-Hater. That means you, Oppenheimer. Left your SS uniform at home? And anyone who disagrees with the United States is a communist.
Obama’s an idiot on Israel - and idiots come in many colors - in Obama’s case, he’s a black idiot. Biden’s a white idiot. Is that racist?
As usual, if one opposes Obama’s policies, it’s racist.
If you don’t support his decrees, you’re a racist.
You don’t like the government screwing over GM & Chrysler’s bond holders, in direct defiance of bankruptcy laws, you’re a racist.
You don’t believe that the federal government has the right to compel you to buy something (health insurance), you’re a racist.
Don’t believe that Israel should be pressured to commit national suicide, you’re a racist.
He’s Irish this week, anyway, isn’t he?
So “Peace Now” wants a race war between Jews and Blacks. Typical Leftist group, predictably hypocritical.
Basically, the entire point of the editorial appears to be: Mr. Netanyahus response to Mr. Obamas demands regarding Israels actions did not make ME feel good. Mr. Obama is black. Mr. Netanyahu is not. Therefore, Mr. Netanyahu MUST be a racist.
Always remember that Israel’s Labor Party and our Democratic Party are eternally joined at the hip.
Eat it, Opie.
He’s a piece of SOMETHING...
sentences that are supposed to be said behind closed doors and in internal discussions were exhibited for all to see in a condescending and ugly manner.
The exact same thing could be said about Obama, and the shocking way he jumped the gun with his snotty speech before Netanyahu even got here. He is the one who set the tone. He humiliated the Prime Minister, ambushed him, even. I would say “payback’s a bitch,” but I think Bibi is too classy for that.
Peace Now = Anti-Semitism
Hmmmmm—what word did you have in mind? Did the word have an s-h and an i-t in it?
This isn’t the first time the Prime Minister of Israel has been the recipient of boorish behavior at the hands of the current pres__ent.
Øbama’s race card is not only expired, it’s canceled because it’s overdrawn!
That is hilarious.
Teaching actual history to an ignoramus (of any color) is "racist?"
Only a true racist would make such a leap.
The slander “racist” has lost its sting, because racism is losing its meaning.
The racist card will be played over and over again until Obamanation is re-elected and continue to be in the news for decades if he’s not. Let’s hope we will read about being racist for decades.
Unless you give Ubama a BJ, you’re a racist.
Besides, wasn't it Zer0 who tossed out the first shot a few days prior when he called for pre-1967 boarders just before the PM came to town?
Then he and his leftist buddies squeal like little girls with a dead frog when he is called on it.
“Treat me as a equal... just not like that!”
What a panzie. What a wussie...
In an editorial, the Jerusalem Post said that a lack of transparency marks Peace Now's financial dealings. It is funded through an educational NGO called Sha'al Educational Enterprises, which, according to its general secretary Yariv Oppenheimer, receives most of its funds from American Jews. Its annual budget is not known, and it provides no information concerning the amount of funds coming from foreign foundations
In 2006, Peace Now director Yariv Oppenheimer reportedly urged the U.S. to pressure Israel into evacuating West Bank outposts, according to a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
What else could the disagreement be about.
Bibi is anti-Irish?
Only the black Irish. He’s ok with red-heads.
So, when Obama deliberately and publicly disrespected and humiliated Netanyahu last year (not once but twice), he was actually revealing his own hatred, bigotry and racism. But we all knew that.
Arutz Sheva/Israel National News is not our FNC. It is a right-wing nationalists and religious new source. That’s not an insult.
Well, its OBVIOUS that ANYONE who criticizes or attacks Obama or his policies is a racist.
Ask Herman Cain, Allen West, Marco Rubio or Alan Keyes.
Soros funded, undoubtedly.
And if their skin’s colored black, they’re also oreo cookies, lawn jockeys and uncle toms, as well as racists.
