The White House has brushed aside an offer by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with President Obama later this month, Israeli officials told Fox News. The apparent snub came despite a state of heightened alert over Irans nuclear program and the possibility of Israeli action.
Sources said Netanyahu, though he plans to be in New York City during his brief stay, was offering to travel to D.C. to make the meeting happen. However, the White House apparently said Obamas tight schedule the president is in the middle of a feverish campaign schedule -- would make a meeting difficult.
The turn-down comes amid increasing international anxiety about Irans nuclear program. The U.N. reportedly has found new intelligence showing Iran is moving toward nuclear weapon capability.
But the exchange between the White House and the prime ministers office is the most recent in what is seen as a cool, if not strained, relationship between Obama and Netanyahu, despite Israel being considered one of the United States closest allies.
One well-placed Jewish-American leader told Fox News that the White House has not yet fully ruled out moving things around on the schedule in order to accommodate Netanyahu but that as of now, Obama is scheduled to be on the campaign trail during the window of time when Netanyahu can make it to Washington.

On September 11, the Muslim in the White House shows exactly whose side he is on. I guess by spitting in Bibi/Israel’s face and disgracing America, he’s showing those Islamics that still want to destroy us and that are ripping down the American flag in Egypt that America “doesn’t hold a grudge” or something like that. I can’t say what I want to say next .....
He made a video for the Arab Forum but he’s too busy?
My fellow American Jews aren’t ignorant. In fact, many are educated far, far beyond their ability to understand. No. Most of my fellow American Jews are brain-damaged. They truly believe that being seen as a good liberal is more important than anything else. Freedom. Safety of the U.S. Safety of themselves personally. Safety of their children. Anything else. Thus, they are a lost cause.
Obama is a fraud and should be kicked out of office ASAP for national security reasons alone.
This would undoubtedly be the truth, what with presidential attendance at intelligence briefings now apparently a thing of the past...
I thought Romney and Netanyahu are long time friends.
It is over a film being produce here that insults Mohammad.
“More like too many are indifferent.”
Particularly American Jews seem to value their Fabian socialist politics and want the issue of Israel to just “go away”.
“What a piece of slime. The DNC should have saved their trouble and just kept the capital of Jerusalem language out of the platform.”
I disagree. Love the way they handled it. They will get the worst of both positions now. They signaled their decadence to moderates but angered their leftist base.
Is 0bama writing off Florida, or does he believe the Jewish vote makes no difference, and he can carry it with the enlarging demographic of “takers” in the Sunshine State?
Traveled there several times in the last two years. I wholeheartedly agree. Just give me a rifle while I’m there and I’ll go down with em with a smile.
I say obama is “too Stupid”.
America is the good guys.
The Øbama Left are the bad guys. The Øbama Left includes the media/pollsters.
Obama Admin Cuts Military Participation With Israel, Increases Participation with Muslim Brotherhood
I had heard Dennis Prager try to address this very topic one day during his radio program. I believe he had written an article about it. His explanation was that that, to the liberal American Jew, his religious identity was “liberalism,” as opposed to Judaism.
I think Israel has more than its share of Socialists and Commies.
for the same day Netanyahu wanted to meet with Obama.
Yes he should. Obama has been one step behind Romney including the Hurricane visit.
