'Bloomberg' column details former US defense secretary's feelings that Netanyahu was "impudent," unable to cope with growing Israeli isolation.
Freshly retired US defense secretary Robert Gates was highly critical of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, calling him an ungrateful ally and blaming him for diplomatically isolating Israel and hurting American interests, a Bloomberg column revealed Tuesday.
The criticism, reported in a piece by Jeffrey Goldberg, apparently peaked after Netanyahu met with US President Barack Obama last May, lecturing him in front of the cameras on the Israeli security situation with a level of "impudence" that shocked many in the White House, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Isn’t Gates the most unsavory butt boy for the Clinton/Bush regime?
Make that the Clintoon/Bush/0Zero regimes.
Never miss an opportunity to kick an Israeli Jew leader, when you can gain the respect of the liberals and pretend to bash Obama all at the same time.
Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.
I am not to my knowledge a genetic son of Israel, but I am a spiritual one, grafted to the root.
Any policy denying Jewish ownership of that piece of the earth is anathema, regardless of which “ally” proposes it.
I suspect I would be deemed “ungrateful”, as well.
Impudence??? No shi-! With our emperor. Who the hell do they think they are dealing with? Impudence my ass.
I think he slams Obla bla and praises Hillary. And there is an alliance with Jeb and Hillary that extends. They’re probably talking about who should win, etc. Gates’ bizarre book is a step.
“that shocked many in the White House, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
There’s a saurprise. The Clintons have had it in for Netanyahu since they sent Carvillle and Begaula to fix the election against him.
Come on, Bibi! Get real! You’re getting screwed by the world: we’re just not that into you; GET OVER IT!
its interesting to see the virtual barrage of (mostly very old style, stale) antiSemitic charges that are being levied right NOW in the mass media.
I had not expected the attackers to include Feinstein but self-hating Jews are not new on the world stage, either
(Soros, for instance) and they can do a tremendous amount of harm
Bibi will do what he must do to defend Israel, no matter what Obama or Soros or their IslamoNazi (or EuroNazi) comrades may want. This simple fact upsets the forces of Satan immensely. That Bibi doesn’t just agree to condemn seven million more Jews to die....to please them...
but we can expect even more of this antiSemitic mass media barrage.....
Satan has been trying for 6000 years, and now that he has his earthly agents in positions of power again, he sure isn’t going to just quiet down and give up...
hang on, we have another 3 years of this to go......
Considering all the military, political, financial support America has given Israel, not having provided the unstinting support it did, Israel would not be in existence today. And then to make claim that it ids an ungrateful ally, well,like I said, it would be the absolute worst thing to say, not just for Israel, Israelis but for American Jews and World Jewry.
It all links to the prejuidices Jews have been accused of, have been fighting against ever since the day.
feinstein’s mother was a Russian Catholic. She’s is no Jew.
I’m thinking what should Bibi be grateful about from the regime?
She attended synagogue (While attending catholic and secular schools ). She married three times, all Jewish husbands. She identifies today as Jewish despite the fact this does not help her politically. For what it’s worth.
( that catholic mother was named Rosenberg as I recall too. For whatever it may or may not be worth she is seen at least as a Jew. Even worse so is soros. But thats another problem. )
Israel does not rely on America for their survival.
I think God may have something to do with it. Ya think?
I watched Today show Interview with Matt Lauer and Gates over his book. Matt was foaming at the mouth in attack mode with questions. Anyways- Gates has this neck brace on and he looked stupid as all get out. He had hard time talking and you could tell he was getting flustered by Matt’s questions.
And this is why people view Republicans as idiots. They write books then cower in front of the Media...
Why would any conservative give one whit about what Gates thinks?
I’m trying to think of anything we’ve done for Israel since George Schultz was Secretary of State under Ronald Reagan.
Nothing is coming to mind. Nothing at all. I’m including both Bushes in that.
George W, did stay silent for a while when Israel invaded Gaza just before the end of his term of office. I believe the operation was called 'operation cast lead'.
Yes, he did nothing and thank God for it.
Long live Israel !!!
The only ally Israel need be concerned about is this One >..Psalm 87.
2 Kings 6:17 "And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha."
I detest these people.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Irrespective of my opinion of Secretary Gates opinion, America's ally, not Obama's ally, is Israel not Netanyahu.
That N-Word in the White House is nothing more than a sub-Saharan Arab Muslim trying to make his bones in the world. He will never hold a candle to Netanyahu. He’s not even close.
Mr. Netanyahu is beyond my ability to describe, but I know I love his courage and determination!
“The Clintons have had it in for Netanyahu since they sent Carvillle and Begaula to fix the election against him.”
Pres. Bush also gave Ohmerde 30 days to wipe out Hezbullah in Lebanon, and Ohmerde blew it.
We’re not isolated. We’re just looking in the wrong places for allies. Our natural allies are India, Armenia, Greece, Cyprus, South Sudan, Greater Kurdistan, Alawitia, Baluchistan, Coptia, Christo-Syria, and Christo-Lebanon. Some of those states don’t exist yet, so we ought to midwife them into being. United we can help each other. Divided, we are alone on a vast Islamofascist sea, looking to a stupidpower for salvation, and playing the chocolate Islamofascists against the vanilla Islamofascists, and hoping they kill each other off.
