Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'
Timesonline.co.uk ^ | Thursday March 25, 2010 | Giles Whittell,

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”.

This guy is such an embarrasment to us all.

He honors the Saudi King with a bow, but insults the Isarali PM. Wierd.

Idea: Wouldn't be great for someone to buy the rights to perform the German musical about Obama, then play it as a farce? It would be a smash hit -- just like Spring Time for Hitler in the film the Producers.

...but isn't it a violation of Sharia for a Muslim to eat with a Jew?

I have no doubt he's had dinner with Rahmn Emmanuel.

I am infuriated and sickened at how 0thugga treated Netanyahu, who is one of the few heads of state I admire and respect greatly. I only wish we had a man of his caliber as president. Instead, we have a piece of slime, no insults meant to actual self-respecting natural slime.

I was listening to callers earlier and they said this is not a settlement...it is just some apartment buildings needed for people to have a place to live and they have been approved 4 times. More like a zoning matter. Already people living there in the area over 10,000. A settlement is new, this is not a settlement.

Incorrect.

I can recall many instances of Middle Easterners AND their wives appearing at the WH, and other venues.

Obama’s relationship to Muslims is roughly akin to an animal lover’s relationship to a pet. As a Marxist elitist, he has sympathy for them and views their welfare as his mission, but they aren’t quite smart enough to decide their own fate.

Besides, he doesn’t have the personal discipline to be Muslim.

Call him what you will. I have come to the conclusion that he is: a marxist, a racist, an anti-American, and a moslem. I do not believe he was born in America or is even an American citizen.

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.

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.

Number of Israeli troops in Iraq = zero.

Number of Israeli troops in Afghanistan = zero.

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 .

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.”

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.

After his victory over the american people on the health bill. Obama is feeling his oats.

The passage of that bill will make him more arrogant and will reinforce the bullying and mob tactics he employed in getting that passed. His encounter with Netanyahu is the first exhibit of his new sense of power.

Watch for him to use those tactics in the upcoming battles for amnesty, cap and tax, card check, etc.

We’re in a war!!

The fact of the matter is that you are likely wrong. You don’t know about Israelis in Iraq or Iran or Afghanistan because they are secret, undercover, part of the background. You don’t know what they lean or what they share.

Clandestine operations are secret to protect the operators.
