The conversation between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama was tense and tough, according to a report on Channel 1 Tuesday evening.
Based on a transcript of the conversation, obtained by Israels channel 1, Obama behaved in a rude, condescending and hostile manner, the networks foreign correspondent concluded.
During the 35-minute conversation on Sunday, the president reportedly demanded that Israel should immediately and unconditionally end the operation.
When Netanyahu asked what Israel would get in return for unilaterally ending the strikes, Obama replied: I believe Hamas will stop firing rockets quiet in return for quiet. To which Netanyahu responded that Hamas has already violated 5 cease-fires and is committed to the destruction of Israel.
I repeat and expect Israel to stop all of its actions against Hamas in Gaza, Obama said. He added that despite Netanyahus objections the United States trusts Qatar and Turkeys mediation. Israel is not in a situation that it can choose its mediators, the president told his Israeli counterpart.
Netanyahu in response: Hamas will continue firing rockets on Israel and use their tunnels to attack our people.
At this point, Obama interrupted the Israeli leader, stating, the ball is in Israels court, and it must end all military activities.
This anal orifice needs to STFU.
Ubama. Not stupid. Evil.
What a psychopath...and I don’t mean the nice Jewish gentleman
Who does Obemba think he is that he can issue orders to the leader of another country? Ronald Reagan or Abraham Lincoln?
Oh, wait. He already said that, didn’t he?
Obama’s an ass, and a Muslim.
What I wonder is, who leaked this? It sounds plausible, but is it true? It is so badly below the diplomatic norm that it is unusual.
Spoken like a true moslem.
“and it must end all military activities.”
“It puts the lotion on it’s skin...”
Typical malignant narcissist.
Someone should give Netanyahu $20,000.00 so he can buy a plate at one of Obama’s many fundraisers. This will grant the Israeli leader the right to have a brief civil conversation with the “Leader of the Free World”.
Does Netanyahu prefer the chicken or the salmon?
If this wasn’t so serious, it would be high comedy.
Obama really really wants Israel to stop fighting back against his friends - Hamas. Is Obama really this clueless?
Sounds about right.
After hanging up, Nethanyahu gave half a peace sign to Obama.
I don’t understand. The Jews love the Democrats. This must be a mistake or some kind of trick. Next thing you know, we will hear that Obama is letting Iran continue with it Nuke program.
Netanyau probably held the phone two and half feet away while Jug Ears was issuing demands and bloviating, I sure would!
The conversation was taped and analyzed later
This disaster of a president should have been impeached long ago. Shame on the Republican House for being such cowards.
It could very well be that someone in Israel leaked it to highlight what an imbecile they’re dealing with.
Why would he want to defend Israel’s borders or its democracy? He’s doesn’t want to defend our borders or our democracy. To him, Israel’s defense is counter to his values. It’s amazing that Obama has united the Egyptians and Israelis with his bend-over-backward support for Islamic extremists.
