US/Israeli Relations


This is not going to be a cordial get together. That said, all Bibi has to do is feign some kind of compliance on some level during the meetings, smile, then afterwards drag his feet and wait for the 2012 elections, and hope for a Republican to assume the office of president. The vote in the General Assembly will be difficult for Israel, but there are bigger issues at stake here, not being forced into a devastating deal with an immensely weak, anti-Israel president presiding.

Netanyahu: Getting to loathe you,
getting loathe all about you.

Obama and Netanyahu, Distrustful Allies, to Meet

WASHINGTON — As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel heads to the White House on Friday for the seventh meeting since President Obama took office, the two men are facing a turning point in a relationship that has never been warm.

For his part, Mr. Netanyahu has complained that Mr. Obama has pushed Israel too far — a point driven home during a furious phone call with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday morning, just hours before Mr. Obama’s speech, during which the prime minister reacted angrily to the president’s plan to endorse Israel’s pre-1967 borders for a future Palestinian state.

Mr. Obama did not back down. But the last-minute furor highlights the discord as they head into what one Israeli official described as a “train wreck” coming their way: a United Nations General Assembly vote on Palestinian statehood in September.

Mr. Netanyahu, his close associates say, desperately wants Mr. Obama to use the diplomatic muscle of the United States to protect Israel from the vote, not only by vetoing it in the Security Council, but also by leaning hard on America’s European allies to get them to reject it as well.

  1. Obama is a man with no class.

    He waits to the moment Netanyahu is about to leave for Washington before delivering his speech – dumping a load on Israel.

    He knows that Israel will never negotiate a settlement based on 1967 borders and the fabrication of an Arab East Jerusalem which never ever existed. (Just another lie taken up by the pathetic MSM.)

    So what’s his motive?

    Knowing that what he proposes will never get off the ground can we assume that its just about looking good to the Muslims?

    An authentic Christian President would never propose what he is proposing. I say an authentic Christian President because unfortunately there are nominal Christians – and maybe he is one.

    I truly struggle with the notion that this man is a true Christian. Maybe a nominal Christian – maybe even a Muslim.

    Whatever the reality he is no friend of Israel whatever he might say to the contrary.
