White House denies Netanyahu snub
politico44 ^ | 9/11/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 09/11/2012 12:57:57 PM PDT by ColdOne

The White House is denying that they refused to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of a U.N. conference later this month.

"The President arrives in New York for the U.N. on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

"The Prime Minister doesn't arrive in New York until later in the week. They're simply not in the city at the same time. But the President and PM are in frequent contact and the PM will meet with other senior officials, including Secretary Clinton, during his visit," Vietor said.

Too late! The Israelis have already spilled the beans on Obama’s snub.

What else could they say?

“Yeah, sure, we snubbed him. What’s the big deal?”

Does the Israeli report on the WHLFCOLB.pdf forgery have anything to do with this snubbing?

I don’t think there are two people in America who are naive enough to actually believe the White House spin on this disgraceful backstabbing of Israel by the regime of Barack Hussein Obama.

Meanwhile the US has cut its military coordination with Israel and is supplying U-boats to Egypt, and is refusing to take any action against Iran which poses an existential threat to the continued existence of Israel.

There was a report last week (from a source I could not verify) that asserted that the combined intelligence services of the US analyzed geopolitics and concluded that the US’s interests would be served if Israel were destroyed. Certainly, President Obama is acting as though he believes this.

Maybe because Bibi offered to fly to Washington to meet, if necessary. For that matter, Obama has nothing else to do but campaign somewhere anyway, so he could really meet Bibi in NYC if he gave a flip.

President Obama acts like a petulant child.

I am sure that he did not order the platform changed, despite Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claims. Rather, some political guide — Axelrod? Plouffe? — urged that the change be made.

Shortly before, and even the day after, the change in the platform, the President’s press secretary was unwilling to go on record with the identity of the city that President Obama believes is Israel’s capital. A few days later they did say that he believes that it is Jerusalem but it has to be negotiated between the parties. What does that mean?

Obama is doing his best to render Israel defenseless while helping to radicalize the Middle East under the Muslim Brotherhood and in particular taking no action to hinder Iran’s crusade to develop a nuclear bomb with the expressly stated intention of using it against Israel.

In other words, the plank is “words, just words” to our child President, and he is going to go about his business of destroying Israel’s geopolitical security as aggressively as he can.

The Prime Minister doesn't arrive in New York until later in the week. They're simply not in the city at the same time.

"The Secret Service doesn't allow Obama to drive, for security reasons, so he really doesn't have any way to get all the way up to NYC to meet people on such a short notice".

“The President arrives in New York for the U.N. on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said.

Typical Demonic Party response and ploy: Bibi reported stated that he would travel to the capital to meet with the jug-eared moron, so the skid mark’s spokescum attempts to deflect the accusation by stating the empty chair won’t be in NYC.

Because Bibi flew 5880 miles into NYC. And Obama is 213 miles away in DC.

1) Obama has flown that before in AF1 for a “date night” and just to buzz Manhattan.
2) If Obama asked, Bibi would certainly make a stop in DC.
3) Bibi REQUESTED to meet with him.

And these are national leaders, in the flashpoint of the Iranian bomb and collapse of Egypt topics, yet, Obama has not the slightest desire to even speak to him.
Last time Bibi was here, IN the White house, Obama left him sitting there to go have dinner with his family. Is there the sightest chance that Obama thinks, “hmm, that was kind of a huge snub,,,i’d better reach out to that ally?”.

There’s no reason to carry Obama’s water here. He is in the wrong. No excuses.

Im not a national leader. I have friends 6000 miles away. If they came here to within 200 miles of me, and ASKED to see me, and i refused without explanation,,,. It’s like that.

I really think Obama feels Israel doesn’t mean anything to his supporters or the so called independents and he is probably right

The lost Jewish vote is a non issue

Most Jews live in certain areas and since enough will remain with him where it counts he probably doesn’t care about lost votes that won’t be enough to lose in the states that are locks

I think you are mistaken.

If they believed Israel is irrelevant to their supporters they would not have first sent Sen. Durbin out to try and bluster his way through the omission of the Jerusalem language from the Democratic Party platform, they would not have changed it, and they wouldn’t have let Debbie Wasserman Schultz go on and on claiming that President Obama insisted that it be put back in and that its omission was a technical oversight.

The fact is that some of the states that have reasonably-large Jewish populations are swing states, including Florida, Ohio and perhaps even Pennsylvania. I saw a poll today that showed Jewish support for Obama down to 59% — still high, but nothing like it used to be.

Moreover, many of the financial backers of the Democrats are Jewish, and if they are not longer able to convince themselves that Obama is a friend of Israel they will not support him financially.

I think that this year the votes of Jews can play a significant role, and that Obama’s strategists believe that Israel sits in a warm place in the Jewish consciousness, notwithstanding its pariah status among progressives and academics (but I repeat myself).

Do you remember this official White House photograph from 2009, which was described as Obama speaking on the phone to Netanyahu? I think that we all have learned that showing the soles of your shoes to someone is regarded as an insulting display of contempt to that person.

Obama has a history of treating Israel with utter disrespect.

Most muslim jihadist pro-Palestinian terrorist-supporting fools hate Israel and its leaders.

And then there were those Hamas phone banks cold-calling Americans to vote for Obama. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

Exactly. There's no reason for Bambi to refuse.

But what I really want to know is why people here are defending his refusal to meet with Netanyahu. Particularly since it's at least the second time Bambi's snubbed him.

You are far too gracious to the average, idiot, ignorant, willfully stupid demoRAT voter. 45% of the country will pull the lever for Buruk Huzzien 0dumb0, irregardless of what he says or does. And most of that 45% are so willfully stupid & ignorant, they would not care what he said or how he acted against Israel. The 10% in the middle are close to being willfully stupid & ignorant, if thaty cannot see through the lies & deliberate destruction of America by 0dumb0 and the demoRATs.

I think he did snub the Israeli PM, and when word started getting out about it -the Obama admin started spinning.
Much like what they did when word got out about the DNC platform dropping “God” and “Jerusalem as capital of Israel.”

Partisan politics aside. The ME is a tinderbox. Iran is developing a nuclear capability. Israel may be forced to take action if the situation continues. The US has a dog in this fight. We have stated that we will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.

Given the time and circumstances, it is imperative that Obama meet with Bibi, if only for the optics. Iran continues its threats and is actually increased its militant rhetoric over the past few weeks. What is Obama thinking?
