Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu: No thanks,
I don’t need an Obama sponsored Arab ambush
To look upon Obama is to immediately despise him. The narcissistic arrogant one, dishes up one fiasco after the other and the US media, save fox News, cheers. Israel could see this was going to be a orchestrated bash-the-Jew-event from the very beginning, it was to be expected that both Egypt and the new Islamized Turkey would attempt to drag Israel’s potential nuclear capabilities into the arena. No need to dignify the event with the Israeli PM being present. Screw em all. KGS
JERUSALEM, April 9 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled a planned trip to Washington next week for President Barack Obama’s 47-country nuclear security summit conference.He made the decision after learning Egypt and Turkey intended to raise the issue of Israel’s presumed nuclear arsenal at the conference, a senior government official said on Friday.Israel is believed to be the only nuclear-armed power in the Middle East but has never confirmed or denied that it possesses atomic weapons. It has not signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, or NPT.Netanyahu saw Obama at the White House late last month for talks on the stalled Middle East peace process with the Palestinians, but they failed to see eye to eye and relations between the two leaders remain at a low ebb.“The prime minister has decided to cancel his trip to Washington to attend the nuclear conference next week, after learning that some countries including Egypt and Turkey plan to say Israel must sign the NPT,” the official said.Israeli media said Netanyahu feared that Islamic countries attending the summit would try to shift its focus from nuclear terrorism to a concerted attack on his country’s presumed nuclear weapons capacity.The White House said it had been informed Netanyahu would not attend the summit and that Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor would lead the Israeli delegation.
