Skip to comments.Netanyahu Welcomed at Home (after Obama's humiliating treatment of him)
Posted on 03/26/2010 2:17:19 AM PDT by SonOfDarkSkies
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was warmly greeted when he returned home from Washington on Thursday after standing up to unprecedented pressure and humiliating treatment from the Obama administration.
A Smith Research poll at the beginning of the week showed 9 percent of Jewish Israelis believe the Obama administration is pro-Israel, compared with an 88 percent approval rating under former President George W. Bush.
A headline in the London-based The Times on Thursday read "Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner.'"
"For a head of government 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," The Times stated.
"Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation," it read.

I pray nightly for Bibi and Israel.
My heart is happy to read about his warm greeting at home.
We all need to write our representitives and protest this disgraceful treatment of a Friend!!
How do you spell crood?
I hope the large American jewish voting block who always seem to vote Democrat bother to heed this warning.
Perhaps the One can make it up to Bibi by bowing to him.
I wish they would stop writing that Netanyahu was “humiliated.”
Bibi wasn’t humiliated. Obama humiliated himself, just like the folks who put a Crown of Thorns on Jesus’ head to “humiliate” Him.
Tell me please, what mortal crown of what earthly kingdom is more glorious than that “humiliating” Crown of Thorns?
Many "Reform" Jews have a moral relativism and peacenik perspective I have gotten into some heated discussions over supporting Israel. Their thesis is Israel is just as bad, They shouldn't have killed the 100 in the tunnels @ Gaza, that they treat the Palestinians to harsh and it is a pox on Israel's house. You know, hook line and sinker from the pages of the NY-Slimes.
It is very frustrating to get discuss our perspective that they (Palestinians) are not necessarily the good guys, in fact some are evil.
I wish so too.
Obama’s behavior was disgraceful and to say that Bibi was humiliated gives Obama far too much power.
Screw the jews in America the majority of them voted for the Jew Hater ,so screw them ,they might as well have voted for Hitler you stupid morons
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I am very happy to hear that he was welcomed back warmly. I was afraid that being dumped by Obama would have been seen as an embarrassment to the Israelis & possibly threaten Bibi’s government.
Granted, I am disappointed in Bibi for different reasons, & that is ‘cuz I don’t think he has been TOUGH ENOUGH against the Palestinian terrorists....I would like to see the Israeli army do to the entire West Bank & Gaza Strip what they did the Racxhael Corrie (remember her?). Gentlemen, start your (bulldozer) engines!
Your comment sounds like Obama math to me ... there are far more Catholics in this country than Jews. You need percentages here ... and I can assure you more Jews voted for the 'anointed one' than Catholics in terms of percentages ... far more.
Completely agree. Netanyahu was insulted by a petulant turd, not humiliated.
Hahah! That was what I was hoping!
“A Smith Research poll at the beginning of the week showed 9 percent of Jewish Israelis believe the Obama administration is pro-Israel, compared with an 88 percent approval rating under former President George W. Bush.”
Adding this to Obama’s Outstanding Record of Dip-lunacy [link list]
You are correct.
Bibi was shown to be a man of character.
The Brown Clown was shown to be a brown clown.
the large American jewish voting block ... are Democrats first and Jewish second -— Zionist (supporting the State of Israel) does not even make the list.
Does anyone have a link to the photo of DL walking past the garbage bags?
Hey I’m Jewish and my friends and family voted for McCain. we have always be republicans and your borderline ANTI-SEMETIC.
“I hope American Jewish supporters of Israel are watching this turn of events!”
Even liberal Jewish voters would see Obama’s temper trantrum as what it was.
But the MSM Jewish voters in the NorthEast watch will never, ever, cover this.
They will never know.
Boy, you do want to say it to them sometimes.
“Far more Catholics voted for Hussein than Jews, so why didn’t you mention them? Or Lutherans? Why only liberal American Jews?”
Are you serious? I mean really, who votes for suicide? American Jews consistently vote Democrat and those D’s consistently do what they can to screw Israel.
Now they have an alleged Muslim in the White House and if he isn’t, he is most certainly their sympathizer.
A Jewish Vote for Barry can only mean they don’t care about their Homeland and that is cultural and semitic suicide.
Well, good luck with that broadstroke description and you are missing the point.
First, we want Israel to survive and thrive. You have conflated the statement “Jews-voted-for-Obama-so-serves-them-right-in-Israel” to being Anti-Semitic. I agree the statement is a little much but the intent of the poster was to make the point that Jews, in America, overwhelmingly voted for Obama.
Barry said he would stand with Moslems, on more than one occasion before taking the White House and still they voted for him.
Again, as a percentage of group and in shear numbers they voted overwhelmingly for a deceiver, who made his position known.
We support Israel, for our own Christian reasons and would expect Jews in America, who may not be Israeli’s to do the same. Yet, we hear nary a peep of indignation when Israel is thrown under the bus.
I have many Jewish friends who support the “rights” of a “Palestinian” homeland in historical Israel. Why?
They think they are being compassionate. This despite the fact there is no such thing as Palestinian race or even a Palestinian People’s History. They are Homeless and Homeland misfits who should be repatriated to their respective countries of origin.
Instead they are used as foils and bait for the other Arab nations, so they have a collective enemy.
Besides the term Palestine was a term invented by the Romans who wanted to wipe the memory of Israel, Jews, Judaism off the map and remove them from history.
Are we asking to much for Jews in America to support Israel?
And are we as supporters of Jews and Israel still, under your definition, Anti-Semites?
I would REFUSE to shake obambi's hand, and consider it a great privilege to shake the hand of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
“The Obama administration has demanded an Israeli response by Saturday so they can present it at an Arab League meeting in Libya”
Ozero can pound sand. Saturday is the Jewish Sabbath. He can wait for his answer.
