Israeli reporter says Obama-Netanyahu transcript legitimate
Jihad Watch ^ | 7/29/14 | Robert Spencer

Both Obama and Netanyahu are denying it, however, but they could be expected to do nothing else, given the circumstances. The strongest indication of the authenticity of the transcript is its absolute believability, knowing what we know about Obama and his view of Israel. The transcript is here. “US and Israel deny report of harsh Obama-Netanyahu conversation,” by Ricky Ben-David, Lazar Berman and Ilan Ben Zion, Times of Israel, July 29, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

…Netanyahu rejects PMO-POTUS call transcript

The Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement that the Channel 1 report is false, using precisely the same words as the White House.

I don’t think it is fake.

Do you remember when the Norks captured the Pueblo and the captain signalled during his television interview that he sounded cooperative under duress and didn’t really mean it?

I see the same signal in Israel tweeting exactly the same words as the US. In my opinion they are saying that this wasn’t their choice and they had to deny it for the sake of preserving what is left of the alliance.

I believe it IS legit.

This is why, I think, Valerie had Bammy go out yesterday and pretend to act like he cares about Ukraine....create ANOTHER news story and get the lapdog media in the USA to cover it for him.

The foreign media, sadly, is more solid on reporting about Team BO than the entire national American press.

I don't usually call people out for typos, but the correct spelling is "taster".

Here is part of the disputed consversaiton fromchannel one via Pamgeller/atlas shrugs whom I trust more than any or the rest.
Transcript of a telephone conversation between US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister

Benjamin Netanyahu that occurred on Sunday, 7.27.14, Source: Chanel 1, IBA News

Obama: I demand that Israel agree to an immediate, unilateral cease fire and stop all offensive activities, especially air attacks.

Netanyahu: What will Israel receive in exchange for a cease fire?

Obama: I believe that Hamas will stop shooting their rockets, quiet will be answered with quiet.

Netanyahu: Hamas has breached all five previous cease fires; it’s a terror origination that is committed to the destruction of the state of Israel!

Obama: I expect Israel to unilaterally stop all of its military activities; the images of destruction from Gaza are moving the world further away from Israel’s position.

Netanyahu: Kerry’s proposal was totally unrealistic and gave Hamas Military and diplomatic advantages.

Obama: A week after Israel ends its military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings which include an Israeli commitment to remove the blockade and other restrictions from Gaza.

Netanyahu: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. You can’t rely on them to be honest brokers.

Obama: I trust Qatar and Turkey… Israel is not in a position to choose the mediator.

Netanyahu: I warn that Hamas will be able to continue launching rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks…

Obama (interrupting Netanyahu): The ball is in the Israeli court and it must stop all military activities.

That exchange sounds about right. Obama isn’t interested in answering questions, just dictating terms. He wants to project power he just don’t have. He is a weak, sad and petty person. I think the King was trying to provoke a hostile response.
