Early frost? White House gives chilly response to proposed Obama-Netanyahu meeting
Fox News ^ | 9/11/12

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 Iran’s 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 Obama’s 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 Iran’s 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 minister’s 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 State’s 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.

Wow!!! Just....wow.

If there was EVER any doubt in people’s minds about where Obama stands on Israel, they should be no more question.

What a piece of slime. The DNC should have saved their trouble and just kept the “capital of Jerusalem” language out of the platform.

There can be only one explanation of Romney’s not being 10 points ahead of Obama. Half of the public hates Jews and/or The USA.

Why didn’t the pos-in-chief just leave Israel out of the democratic platform. He doesn’t believe it should survive as a nation.

The JEWS of the USA hate the Jews of Israel. Pretty tough to overcome that.

What a ****ing little maggot.

More and more I find myself wanting to actually move to Israel.

When the day of days comes, and I believe it is very near, I want to win or die with the good guys.

And America ain’t the good guys.

I think Romney should announce an offer to meet with him TODAY for the same day Netanyahu wanted to meet with Obama. It would show that Obama does NOTHING, and that Obama has no interest in havig an alliance with Israel.

Ignorant American Jews need to know which presidential candidate really has their interests at heart.

Bibi is in a delicate spot, as it would be potentially bad for Israel to make support-for-Israel a GOP-only phenomnia — but I am not sure the charade of Dhim support for Israel is worth it.

And, I do think frank talk about Obama from Bibi might be listened to.

This certainly sounds like Israel was going to tell him they’re about to attack. If that’s the case, I’m glad obama didn’t meet with him. If he tells obama anything obama will warn all the muslim nations.

By not meeting with Net it also gives him cover. He can say he had no idea Israel was about to attack.

“...Half of the public hates Jews and/or the USA...”

I think it’s more that half of the public is too stupid and ignorant to care - remember Rome’s bread and circus to keep the plebians content to be ruled? Well, now it’s the sports, and all the electronics (Facebook, utube, realistic video games) and government freebies that act as giant pacifiers so that half just don’t care. It is SOO sad - the apathy shown by these so called Americans to not properly inform thenselves is heart breaking.

That is certainly a possibility.

We have left our ally with no other option that I can see but to utterly decimate Iran.

I cannot believe we have turned our back on them.

We, the country who defeated Adolf Hitler, is now an ally of Adolf Hitler.

I am so disgusted, I am at a loss for words to describe how I feel about my country.

There don’t seem to be words strong enough to qualify,

I think I’ll just remain silent.

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 .....

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 owes to many people for to many things. He's not in charge when his
decisions are beholden to those who got him elected and created his persona.

Obama is a fraud and should be kicked out of office ASAP for national security reasons alone.

“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”.
