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.

>> Dissing perhaps our most valuable ally and friend
Number of Israeli troops in Iraq = zero.
Number of Israeli troops in Afghanistan = zero.
Most valuable how, exactly? <<
Yeah, even Bush knew that having israli troops in Iraq and Iran would be Political and National Security Policy Suicide. It is bad enough the Saudi’s spend tons of money making Israel look like the cretin of the middle east. That would have given the islamofacists even more of an excuse and a definiate rallying point.
Also hard to explain that whole
“bless those who bless you, curse those who curse you”
to some folks that don’t cotton to the authority of the Word.
I think the POS in the Oval Office is trying to weaken Bibi at home so that Israel will be easier to bully. Some reports have said that, that Obama wants the leftist Israelis in the governing coalition to weaken Likud.
Bibi has bad luck with his timing as PM. He had to deal with Slick Willie the first time, and Slick undermined him and sent Serpent Head to Israel to help Bibi's campaign opponent. Obama is also trying to weaken Bibi in Israel.
And the percentages who voted for him implicate the whole Nation.
Mr. Netanyahu should feel honored, not humiliated.
We should wait until we fight someone friendly.. then thay’ll help.
How disgraceful obama is ..oh but he bowed b4 the saudi prince
Muslims do not tolerate Jews. Got it?
He may not be that bad. He is but an amateur, a bush league, strike that, a farm team stringer.
He has no experience and is in way, way over his head and he knows it.
Arrogance is a defense for low self esteem that is epidemic among people of his culture.

You can take black punks off the Chicago streets but you shouldn’t expect them to act in a civil manner.
I think you might be correct.
Isn't the Clinton administration one of the first to call for a palestinian state?
They had Arafat at the White House & at Camp David on a regular basis - kissing his butt & trying to make Israel make ridiculous concessions.
