Skip to comments.Obama snubbed Netanyahu for dinner with Michelle and the girls, Israelis claim
Posted on 03/25/2010 9:22:39 AM PDT by propertius
Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday.
The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.
The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country's relationship with the United States was over.
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."
As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."

Arrogance, thy name is Obama!
Here’s an Open Question for the American Jewish Democratic Voter:
Are you enjoying this circus, put on by your president, at Israel’s expense?
The word asshat would be properly applied here.
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Thanks Obama for bringing God’s curse on us.
Nay. Obama is a class act.
Wow. Way to piss off our #1 ally in the Mideast.
“Heres an Open Question for the American Jewish Democratic Voter:

Israel has MUCH more stalwart friends and support among conservative Catholics and Christians, than the typical American Jew.
Not a good idea to mock God’s chosen people.
This gives new meaning to the term ‘epic failure’, Another great way to destroy your presidency, what a moron.
So this is the vaunted diplomacy we heard about during the 2008 campaign.
I totally agree!
Looks like my prediction from Nov 2008 was wrong. I should have included Israel too.
"My guess is that the EU is going to be shocked when they realize just how arrogant Obama is. Im sure they, in their own condescending way, are thinking Ah, finally a man we can work with! One who will listed to us and be guided by our nuanced knowledge of world affairs!. Instead after they deal with Obama they will come away angry about being bossed around by him. He thinks hes king of the world now. He doesnt want some sniveling beaurocrat in Belgium telling him what to do! They will take his instructions or else!"
I’d rather eat boiled shoe leather than break bread with this anti-Semitic Marxist. I sure hope Bibi realizes the petulant intractability of the boy he is dealing with.
Netanyahu needs to verbally whip the community organizer in the media at a press conference to show what a little miserable POS he is.
Let’s pray that God’s wrath falls on Obama and his minions.
We know how God values the Jewish people, and how He hates pride.
I pray that the Lord removes these idiots from power before it’s too late. Maybe the House can initiate impeachment proceedings when the Republicans return to power early next year.
They are, the majority of American Jews voted for this POS.
Does anyone now believe that OBAMA is NOT a Muslim who HATES ISRAEL?
And Ninety Percent of Jewish Americans Voted for OBOZO!
Maybe they will wake up before its too late again!
But Netanyahu and Israel shouldn’t feel alone!
OBAMA HUSSEIN Hates AMERICA Equally! In fact, it appears he Hates Everyone who isn’t a Communist Dictator...like Chavez,Castro, Chairman Mao, Stalin, Lenin just to name a few of his obvious Hero’s and Role Models......:-(
Aw... I guess Hillary can come over from the State Dept..and patched up some more of this mess, build some more walls. This is the most transparent administration of modern history, a real TEAM...
Elections have consequences. Wars have consequences. The Arabs lost.
Hebrew to a muzzie is like garlic to a vampire.
Crass, so crass. Nobama has no class at all. I cannot stand his hubris.
Netanyahu can have dinner with my family anytime.
“Are you enjoying this circus, put on by your president, at Israels expense?”
My Jewish friends will bluster about how concerned they are about Israel and how important being Jewish is to them and then in November they will vote Liberal Democratic again. When push comes to shove they are always more Liberals/Democrats than they are Jews! I have repeatedly told many of them how full of crap they are.
It was naive to even have come in the first place.
Bibi should publicly embarass this little piece of zhit muslim....
What a dick!
I once had coffee with Brigadier General Natke Nir and he spoke of the love and support he knows Conservative Christians have for Israel. He told of his many trips to America and the commonality of interests and heritage we have. He greatly appreciates and loves American conservatives. He just shook his head when I mentioned American Jewery. People of character know what is going on.
Agreed. Bibi’s aides should have persuaded him not to have come.
On the other hand, maybe Bibi thought that his speech at AIPAC and the warm welcome he received from Republicans and Congress would have shown Obama the level of support he (Netanyahu) enjoys in the United States.
This is typical of the way Obama is treating our allies. The Japanese are re-evaluting their relationship, Obama chose Chavez over Honduras, Russia over Poland, the Pali’s over Israel, etc.
When Israel and China relations begin to warm the US had better pay VERY close attention.
When you start by doing serious damage to US-Israel relations, it is not difficult to imagine a scenario that is much worse then Obama-care.
Bibi is going to appear very weak though if he does not take Obama to the woodshed.
If he will not stand up to zero and allow himself and his country to be treated this way it only shows weakness to Muslims - and that is EXACTLY why Obama is doing this.
He wants Israel to appear weak and under American thumb to embolden their enemies to attack her.
The “President” is lower class than trailer trash. He stinks to high Heaven!
“.....among conservative Catholics and Christians...”
Are Catholics something other than Christian?
Dear People of Israel,
Please do not judge all of us on the basis of that arrogant, classless, irresponsible, disrespectful, fraudluent POS in the Oval Office. There are many, many of us on your side.
I’ve always suspected that Mossad has TONS of info on Barry Soetero...maybe this would be the time for them to release it and wipe the arrogant smirk off of Bambi’s face!
Yes! Obama is a Chicago street punk with manners to match!
If this was Tuesday night Michelle wasn’t even there...she was on an eating tour of NYC.
Michelle Obama has a feast in NYC
Last Updated: 9:49 AM, March 25, 2010
First Lady Michelle Obama dined at Aquavit, the Scandi navian eatery on East 55th, as she continued her culinary tour of the city Tuesday. “She came by with a group of friends,” says a spy. “She was wearing a sleeveless black dress and had the tasting menu.” Obama tapped Aquavit chef Marcus Sam uelsson to cook last year’s state dinner at the White House for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. While on her spring break here, the first lady also stopped by Dinosaur Bar-B-Q in Harlem and Grimaldi’s pizzeria in Brooklyn.
Celebrity Death Match! Bobo vs Bibi in the shortest death match ever!
.36 seconds was all it took for Bibi to own Bobo.... Bobo has yet to get off the mat...
King Obama is a hard core communists and a Muslim. What did Netanyahu expect from this elite piece of garbage. If I were him, I would call our black nitwit what he is, a anti-American rotten Jew hater.
I believe they’re both Columbia grads. I’m sure Bibi knows who he’s dealing with.
