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”.

I’ve been to Doncaster, Manchester, Meltham, Liverpool and many others of your fine cities and have made many friends and acquaintances in the “Mother Land”. I feel sorry for our global friends as to the way they have been treated and the way our enemies have been befriended.

But I also believe that there is a purpose to all of this and it will be a good one...

What he means is when he posts he gets a message that his message is being reviewed before it’s displayed. I got that treatment for a while in the beginning but after a while I was released from the review list.

“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.”

It's going to take American Jews to fix this. They are going to have to wake up and stop voting for Dem's and vote for Republicans. Until they do this the Dem's will continue to dump on Israel.

No Muslim will be seen with a Jew. Obama is a Muslim.

Don't be silly. Obama is with a Jew every day: Rahm. (I know he hates Israel but any Muslim would still consider Rahm Jewish.)

No, it's that Obama is bought and paid for by enemies of Israel and he HAS to snub them and go against them in policy. To some of his benefactors, that is why he is there.

For Israel to help herself, she needs to help us get rid of this President.

Only problem is that would leave the world with a President Biden and that's just as scary. I think I'd rather see a President Hillary as awful as that sounds.

The line, “He who blesses Israel will be blessed and he who curses Israel will be cursed” is not in the Bible at all. That phrase is a misinterpretation of one verse, Genesis 12:3. In Genesis 12:3, God said to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you, and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” The direct “bless-curse” line concerned Abraham alone, not Israel.

While I am a Christian and I believe the US should support Israel, that “verse” is not in the Bible.

“Obama has enemies in the CIA and Mossad. Don’t be surpised if some unassailable revelations turn up sooner than later. “

This is a great point that was brought up earlier today. The Mossad probably has a file on Zero as thick as a brick. Let’s hope they start leaking some info. out soon! Keep pissing Bibi off Obortion, that’s a good strategy!!

The direct “bless-curse” line concerned Abraham alone, not Israel.

The context of the blessing, as repeated elsewhere in Genesis, refers to Abraham and his descendants. (Genesis 26:3-4, 27:29, 28:13-15). However, you're quite correct to note that there is no such verse referring to Israel as it did not exist at the time of the original blessing.

That is by our request. It would be percieved as a religious war and we would lose all Arab cooperation if Israeli troops were present in those countries. However, Israel gives us lots of intelligence which saves American lives.

I haven’t read very far in the comment to know whether this has been brought up, but, if memory serves, Bibi was coming over here to address AIPAC and, as tensions got high in the healthcare vote-buying, Obama realized he might have offended the Jewish Congressional block by his condemnation of the new Jerusalem housing. In a show of nicie-nicie, he invited Netanyahu to come talk to him while he was in the U.S. Once the healthcare vote was in, the Jewish vote was no longer needed and he didn’t need to be nice to Netanyahu. I firmly believe it was all a ploy to get healthcare passed.

This must be something recent. I lurked for quite a while before I signed up, but as far as I can recall, I never got a reviewed message.

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.

They were not the only one to think this. Obama is really, really stupid. If I were out of a job, I would be LIVID that the President is spending his time humiliating our allies rather than taking care of domestic concerns.

But Obama is a narcissist first and foremost and can't accept the fact that Israel is not bending to his every command, so he will go down this road even if it hurts him politically. He is a clown.
