Peace Now Accuses: Netanyahu is Racist Toward Obama
Arutz Sheva ^ | 24/5/11 | Gil Ronen

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 Ma’ariv, Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer called Netanyahu’s behavior “unprecedented.”

It was no coincidence, he explained, that the Prime Minister’s “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.”

Netanyahu’s “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. .....

of course. Anyone who disagrees with zero is a racist. The great uniter has turned out to be the great polarizer and a racist.

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.”

Playing the race card is a tacit admission that Dear Leader’s conduct is otherwise indefensible. But we knew that.

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.

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.

If were going to use liberal hate logic, couldn't we also say the ONLY reason dems disagreed with Netanyahu is because they're all antisemites?

A lot of ‘high-toned’ rhetoric, and a surplus of hyperbole, but no quotes of specific statements by Mr. Netanyahu's that were “condescending and ugly” and no listing of specific instances of him being “supercilious and patronizing” in his speech.

Basically, the entire point of the editorial appears to be: “Mr. Netanyahu’s response to Mr. Obama’s demands regarding Israel’s actions did not make ME ‘feel’ good. Mr. Obama is ‘black’. Mr. Netanyahu is not. Therefore, Mr. Netanyahu MUST be a racist.”

“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.

That is hilarious.
Teaching actual history to an ignoramus (of any color) is "racist?"

Only a true racist would make such a leap.

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.

Enter the lion's cage... prepare to be bitten.

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...

Yariv Oppenheimer

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.

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.
