Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

For a head of state to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of.

Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip seen in Jerusalem tonight as a disastrous humiliation.

After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisors and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman who spoke to the Prime Minister said today.

“It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House phone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

Newspaper reports recounted how Mr Netanyahu looked “excessively concerned and upset” as he pulled out a flow chart to show Mr Obama how Jerusalem planning permission worked and how he could not have known of the announcement that hundreds more homes were to be built just as Mr Biden arrived in Jerusalem.

Mr Obama then suggested that Mr Netanyahu and his staff stay on at the White House to consider his proposals, so that if he changed his mind he could inform the President right away. “I’m still around,” the Yediot Ahronot daily quoted Mr Obama saying. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

With the atmosphere so soured by the end of the evening, the Israelis decided that they could not trust the phone line they had been lent. Mr Netanyahu retired with his defence minister, Ehud Barak, to the Israeli Embassy to ensure the Americans were not listening in.

The meeting came barely a day after Mr Obama’s landmark health reform victory. Israel had calculated that he would be too tied up with domestic issues ahead of the mid-term elections to focus seriously on the Middle East.

Is dumping Netanyahu what passes for diplomacy these days?

President withdraws to have dinner in private

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it a violation of Sharia for a Muslim to eat with a Jew?

What a guy, Obama. Dissing perhaps our most valuable ally and friend...and at the same time being soft on our enemy, Iran. He just loves tyrants.

What did Bibi expect, respect? If he did then he is not a smart as I thought he was. Obama is the most disgraceful President we have ever had, after we restore the republic Obama must go down in history with the likes of Benedict Arnold, Jane Fonda, and John Kerry.

Can you find that post where a Freeper said that he had talked to an professor and glean that the reason obama left Michelle to go to the Middle East was because Muslims don’t bring their wives or something...I’ve tried but fail to find it.

The Kenyan dined with Jews at a faux seder a year ago. The photos were lovingly distributed by Jewish liberals as proof of how wonderful the Kenyan is. Needless to say, the pix lacked the required BARF ALERT.

Watch the men together. Our President certainly does not like the Prime Minister. Are we allowed to suspect that his
18 or 20 years in the pew listening to one America's foremost gasbag anti-semites might cause suspicion.

IMHO, 60+ years of being surrounded by people that would as soon see them wiped off the earth, makes the Israelis fairly tough customers.

Unbelievable. Our one true ally in the Middle East. It’s not enough that the Muslims hate us? We’ve got to piss off the Israelis too? Great job there you moron. I will tell you if Obama thinks this is going to placate the Muslims, it won’t. It will be taken as a further sign of weakness. If I’m a Muslim I’m looking at this as “Not only is America weak and morally bankrupt, they betray their allies too.”

You know, everytime someone mentions that Obama is a Muslim, many people, even some conservatives, say that isn’t true, Obama is a christian, yada, yada, yada. But I have to say, if Obama isn’t a Mohammed lovin’ Muslim, then why does he behave in a way that appears designed to get the approval of the Muslim world. To trash our most loyal and consistent ally in the Middle East is an outrage. Sadly, Hillary Clintoon is not much better.

I only hope that Israel realizes they have to go it alone with Iran, etc and Israel bombs them back into the stone ages. Then, I hope US Jews see the light and stop voting, en mass, for Democrats.

Let’s see, 0bamao has stated that he is willing to sit down with known terrorists and cutthroats but it appears that he is unwilling to sit down with America’s [former] friends and allies.

I don't think Netanyahu was humiliated by Obama's behavior. I am sure he expected BHO to behave just as he did.

I'll bet Bibi felt great sympathy for the American people, that we have such a self absorbed POS as our president.
