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”.

You've hit on the real insult - Obama didn't even give Netanyahu any DVDS! Oh, the horror!

Face it, we have an uncultered, trailer-trash, ghetto bum in the White House.

That's totally unfair - to trailer trash ghetto bums! They at least have a keen sense of self-preservation. BN is not a man I would cross. I suspect shortly Obama will learn that.

The Mossad file on Obama is being held until after the attack on Iran. There will be a day, soon, that BN - like Michael Corleone - settles all family business.

This is no way to treat a close, long-standing friend.

Mr. Prime Minister, this man (Obama) does not speak for all Americans. I, for one, treasure and appreciate our nation’s friendship with your wonderful country, Israel. You are always welcome here. We are praying for you and for the peace of Israel.

My thought is that Bibi can just nod and smile and accept the money congress appropriates and consider Obama as one an infestation of lice, or the crabs, or perhaps jock itch.

With medication and time, the Obama plague will dissipate.

Is this your speculation or based on knowledge? Because if it based on factual knowledge, I will sleep better tonight.

For starters, they’re willing to execute ops that we won’t do. While the CIA dithers, Mossad does. Pretty handy fellows to have on our side. Doesn’t mean that we need or want their troops patrolling streets in Khandahar. That’d be a disaster.

Well, the Dali Lama was sent out the back door of the White House, where the trash gets piled up, straight into photographers’ lenses for the picture to get back to China.

0bama is a sicko in every way.

Number of Israeli troops in Iraq = zero.

Number of Israeli troops in Afghanistan = zero.

Most valuable how, exactly?


You really think that the muslims would’t go crazy with IDF troops on their land ?
Some things are more valuable than what can be seen by the eye like intelligence and yes they share much of that with us. Quit playing the blame the Jew game .

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

He's not a moslem...he's an atheist.

(Who probably,at one time,was a moslem.)

It’s hard to say what Obama is saying in private.

Maybe something like, “If you try to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, we will shoot down your jets before they get there.”

Or: “Remember that Advanced Weaponry you asked for last year, we have decided to sent it to Saudi Arabia instead.”

Maybe we are going to find out the background of the Socialist President sooner rather than later. Mossad should welcome that task!

When will the American Jews sour on their Messiah Obama???

Obama is following Jimmy “The Anti-Semite” Carter’s footsteps quite closely.

Once an anti-semite, always an anti-semite.

Obama’s true muslim colors are more than showing.
