US irate with Israeli defense minister comments
Associated Press ^ | Mar 19, 2014 3:26 PM EDT | Matthew Lee

The Obama administration on Wednesday vented its anger at the Israeli defense minister’s public criticism of the U.S. and his personal insults of Secretary of State John Kerry.

In a new sign of tension between top officials of the two allies as Washington tries to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal and negotiate with Iran over its nuclear program, Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to protest recent remarks by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon.

Yaalon this week accused the Obama administration of being weak on Iran and questioned its commitment to Israel’s security. Previously, Yaalon has criticized Kerry personally for being unrealistic and naive in trying to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. …

If they thought Putin was too much to handle, trying to bully Israel to make themselves feel better will really show their true weakness.

Obama and Kerry can pummel Israel because they’re pathetically weak on Iran and Russia. They really do have Israel’s back.

At some point Bibi is going to tell Obama to ‘Bite Me’ and unleash hell on Iran.

Obama and his cronies can’t admit that Obama’s ass has been handed to him by Putin, but I think we all know that is what Obama wanted from the start, after all, he promised to be more “Flexible” with Russia after the election

Obama doesn’t like Israelis not drinking the Koolaid of a bad “deal” with Iran, and goes after them.

I can’t blame Israel. Their future security depends on a president who has shown contempt for them and is “working” with Israel’s sworn enemy on a no nukes agreement.

“US irate with Israeli defense minister comments”

WoW!

More impotent than we really knew!

Elections do have consequences and when you elect someone without any REAL experience “you get what you pay for.”

We (the US) and our Allies are in deep $hit — God, please help us from all enemies foreign and domestic, but right now, mostly domestic.

appointing Kerry SoS was an insult to every American servicemember. How his appointment got by Congress, I’ll never know. But here’s to Israel for calling him out - Lord knows our own press won’t.

... as opposed to Obama/Kerry/Biden telling Putin that “He’s on the wrong side of history?”

It’s pretty obvious that we dodged a major bullet when John Kerry lost his presidential bid. But now that he’s SecState he’s showing just how thin-skinned he really is — and I thought John McCain was bad!

Maybe Obama should apologize to Israel for encouraging international isolation and action against Israel if it doesn’t agree to a US sponsored peace deal with the Palestinians.

Irate?

Obama and Kerry are two frustrated antisemites
who (will) continue to try to give away Israel’s capitol,
and to all free terrorists AND arm them, because they
think they can (and the US Congress agrees).

If God is with Israel, they don’t need us. If God isn’t with Israel, nobody will be able to help. 70 AD did happen.

Actually I believe obama, kerry, and the democRATs are cold and calculating ... I see their aim (obama, kerry, and the democRATs) as to destroy and kill anything American and Israeli, which in the long run makes obama, kerry and the democRATs unrealistic and naïve. (mho)

Iran has missiles in Eritrea, pointed at the Red Sea oil shipping lanes; Putin has invaded Ukraine; the dictatorship in Venezuela is collaborating with Iran, Russia, and Cuba; the Iranian-backed koranimals have been launching missile attacks against Israel continually for decades; but the only noteworthy diplomatic problems are Ugandan sovereign law and Israel’s distancing itself from the supposedly impartial mediary in the “peace” negotiations. Impeach Now ping. Thanks Olog-hai.
