White House seeks to replace Netanyahu? ID'd 'moderate' leader who can push for Palestinian state
WND ^ | 3/17/14 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 03/17/2014 10:20:42 AM PDT by Nachum

TEL AVIV – In recent weeks, representatives for the Obama administration have held meetings with a senior politician here in which the U.S. delegates brought up the possibility of replacing Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister, according to an informed Jerusalem diplomatic source.

The meetings were held with Israel’s popular finance minister, Yair Lapid, founder and leader of the Yesh Atid Party, which became the second-largest party in the Knesset winning 19 seats in the last election.

The diplomatic source said the Obama administration identified Lapid as a moderate who could be helpful in pushing the Israeli government into accepting the framework to create a future Palestinian state.

According to the source, the talks included the possibility of Lapid bolting Netanyahu’s government if the prime minister rejects the U.S.-brokered regional talks.

Maybe we should mind our own business as to who their elected leaders are.

If the Jews do anything that Obama wants, they assure their doom.

I truly hope that Israeli Jews are not as completely politically stupid as American Jews appear to be.

To vote for, support, or refrain from tossing feces at any liberal is to show your idiocy.

Replace him with Ngô Đình Diệm, perhaps?

I remember when the Obama administration took the reins. They pompously claimed they would never interfere in other nations business, like Bush.

We found out that the exact opposite is what they did. I am sure they are already agitating in Israel as they do everywhere else.

I’d be happier if the Israelis stuck their nose in our business and began exerting pressure here for a “moderate leader”.

Many Israelis are suicidal - anything for ‘peace’ and are regularly mocked by other Israelis.

Just a minor change to your excellent diagnosis of the meddling Obozoites.

I have various problems with Bibi, but if Obama hates him, he must be OK.

More to the point, given Putin is trying to re-assemble the Soviet Union and the Ukraine will probably fall into fascism in response, I would think there are more pressing issues than creating another failed terrorist state in the Middle East.

If Obama thinks he (or America) has any influence on our allies left, he's smoking Choom again. That ship sailed. Last I heard, Israel still elected their leaders too.

Ngô Đình Diệm (About this sound listen; 3 January 1901 – 2 November 1963) was the first president of South Vietnam (1955–1963).[1] In the wake of the French withdrawal from Indochina as a result of the 1954 Geneva Accords, Diệm led the effort to create the Republic of Vietnam. Accruing considerable US support due to his staunch anti-communism, he announced victory after a fraudulent 1955 plebiscite in which he won 600,000 votes from an electorate of 450,000 and began building a right-wing dictatorship in South Vietnam.

Way to push the Israeli people into Benny’s lap, let them know we are meddling with their choices and watch the support for him climb sky high.

Clinton did it, in the 90s. Sent Rahm Emmanuel over there, and he set up a Clinton-style destroy mission, and basically took over Israeli politics, and next election, Bibi was out. Rahm’s probably busy right now screwing up a city with more citizens than Israel, but maybe someone else could do it again.

Maybe Netanyahu will do all of us a favor and release some of the damning information he has on the fraud obama. Israel has to have the dirt on this clown. I wish they would bring him down since nobody in our government has the guts to do it.
