Report: Sarkozy calls Netanyahu 'liar'
ynet news ^ | 11/7/11 | ynet

Posted on 11/07/2011 5:43:57 PM PST by Nachum

Microphones accidently left on after G20 meeting pick up private conversation between US, French presidents. Sarkozy admits he 'can't stand' Israeli premier. Obama: You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!

French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly told US President Barack Obama that he could not "stand" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that he thinks the Israeli premier "is a liar."

According to a Monday report in the French website "Arret sur Images," after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington's strong objection to the move.

Sarkozy is a fool.

Zero must have been eating out of his hand. Any anti-Israeli sentiment inflates his dreams of a Jew free world.

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.

A member of the media confirmed Monday that "there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue."

He added that while it was annoying to have to refrain from publishing the information, the journalists are subject to precise rules of conduct.

Which, of course, begs the question of how they found their way into print.

It also appears to be true what many of us have been saying: Israel is indeed alone.

Still, he said that reporters "did not have a chance to take advantage of this fluke."

If it had been GWB, they would have been all over it, wall-to-wall.

BTW..Do you think Obama ‘has to deal with him every day’? Barry probably only deals with Israel when he is dragged kicking and screaming into a briefing with Hillary.

Barry spends 100X more time on the golf course than he does on Israel

Interesting view of the _resident on Israel.

Maybe SeeBS will run this in tandem with their Fast and Furious coverage.

I don't quite agree. Israel has few friends in power in Europe and no friends at all in our racist and anti-Semitic White House, but Israel will never be alone.

I'm just repeating what a couple of reliable sources wrote long ago; as a Jew, you must have read the same words. I have clear and convincing reasons to trust their promises, and I do trust completely. There is no guarantee that it will be pretty, and I expect some very unpleasant events, but we both know which side will win.

Well...I’m not the poster that said it ... BUT

Bibi has balls. It’s possible that the strike by Israel is inevitable and all of this media chatter about it is to throw Iran off. If Israel’s going to act alone because Iran truly is at the point that it must be done ... this “accidentally caught” conversation let’s Obama and Sarko off the hook ... even though they may tacitly think Iran needs the nukes taken out.

If nobama wins again, we in Texas will be a Whole Nuther Country!

Actually, if worst case scenario and somehow he is re-elected (fraudulently of course) it probably be 6 months and there will be a real R2 with the Mil siding with us not him.

"...but we both know which side will win."

There's a few of us down under that have a fair idea as well 8-)

"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision"

 Thanks to Army Air Corps and Sunken Civ for the Ping.
 My take FWIW:
 I don’t believe the “I didn’t know the mike was open” excuse... ever, especially not at meetings at such high levels. 
  So, who did the leaking, and whom does it benefit?
  Who is the winner? Who is the loser? 
  We know Sarko detests Obama, we know Obama hates Bibi and Israel. I think Bibi and Sarko actually have a good working relationship. 
  It is possible that Sarko set up Obama, hoping he would make an anti-Bibi, anti-Israel comment. And the Dear Leader never disappoints in that department, does he?
  Obama needs to be seen as supporting Israel; now, once again, he shows he doesn’t. Sarko has been accused of being too close to Israel, in fact, often accused of being Jewish. 
  This might also be payback for the snarky, tasteless comment Barry made about Sarko and Carla’s new baby. 
  Let’s see if any if this makes a difference with the knee-jerk leftist Jews who voted 80+ % for Obama in 1980.
