Washington caught off guard by Netanyahu visit
Ynet ^ | 10.25.09 | Yitzhak Benhorin

Israel says PM did not consult Obama ahead of trip because meeting on peace process unnecessary.

WASHINGTON – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's intention to visit Washington for the annual UJC General Assembly has surprised many on Capitol Hill and was apparently not coordinated with the Obama administration.

An American source told Ynet Sunday that news of the visit had been received with reserved astonishment.

The Obama administration has not yet responded to questions of whether a meeting with Netanyahu was forthcoming due to their surprise over the unscheduled visit. On the other hand, failure to invite Netanyahu to the White House may be perceived as a diplomatic crisis.

Sources in Jerusalem say Netanyahu did indeed decide to attend the GA without first consulting President Barack Obama, but that since the latter would also be present at the event the two may meet in any case.

The sources say a summit between the two leaders would be superfluous at this point in the peace process, and for this reason an official meeting has not been scheduled.

An official statement regarding Netanyahu's visit is scheduled to be published soon in the US, and an unofficial oral announcement has already been given by the Jewish Federations' leaders. The prime minister's visit is scheduled to take place on November 8-10.

Thanks for the Palin photo. Yes, I've known that she had that Israeli flag in her office, ever since she was nominated for VP last year. Yet it was implied at a Jewish Dummycrat event during last year's campaign - by none other than the former impeached (and removed) black federal judge, Alcee Hastings - that Palin is antisemitic and anti-black. Why? Because, according to Hastings, she hunts moose! That's Dummycrat illogic and idiocy for you!

BTW, I have a hunch that the posted article at the start of the thread isn't very important in the general scheme of things.

An alternate view . . .

Leah Rabin, the late widow of assassinated premier Yitzhak Rabin, used words such as "nightmare," "monstrosity," "corrupt" and "liar" to describe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in letters she wrote over a decade ago that have recently been obtained by Haaretz.

. . . oher han that . . . HOWDY!

It's very simple. Netanyahu didn't call first because Israel understands that Obama wants the Muslims to win.

The rest of us should understand it too.

Hilarious. Netanyahu shows that Obozo is completely irrelevant, by not "consulting" him before attending, and also by being indifferent as to whether "the two may meet." They may, or they may not - Bebi doesn't care either way.

When other leaders start to ignore zer0 or put him in the corner maybe Americans on the fence will wake up. The biggest surprise is that zer0 will attend the conference. Wonder what he will apologize for?

Great strategic move on Netanyahu’s part. Don’t let Obama dictate the agenda at the conference. Classic example of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer.
