Obama Treats Netanyahu Shamefully

The Bible says that he who blesses Israel will be blessed and he who curses Israel will be cursed. God forgive us and be merciful to us.


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. Yet that is how Benjamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.

After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Obama walked out of his meeting with Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a U.S. congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

“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 telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

Maybe the President did'nt appreciate the Israeli gov't announcing a new building project while the VP and Netanyahu were in a press conference. It would appear Israel was trying to give the appearence that the U.S. condoned the building project. Not the way an ally conducts itself.
