Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday. The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.In other words, Obama could not force Bibi to agree to 13 unconditional demands on Israel - and the affirmative action kid stormed out of the room, hissing and cursing. My only question here - is anyone surprised? Barry is a child - a child who can read the teleprompter in a way that could impress some adults - but he is still a child. Intellectually - he never grew up. Unfortunately, he is more than a child (or less) - he is a naughty child, a child who did not have good parents, who grew up with the grandparents who adored him and fullfilled every little desire of little Barry. And now, "first time in his adult life" someone said "No" to Barry - and he is hysterical, he is breaking the toys and storms out of the room. I hope someone keeps the nuclear suitcase away from him - he may do things he will regret later.
… (Mr. Obama) immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. Key among those demands was a previously-made call to halt all new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: “I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls.” As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. “I’m still around,” Mr Obama is quoted by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. “Let me know if there is anything new.”
Of course, the story did not end here. Currently, different factions inside the Obama clique are throwing insults at each other. "Zionist", "Jew Hater", "UnAmerican", "Jew Lover" are just a few things that the public is allowed to hear. Politico reports deep divisions inside the Obama groupies, and I believe this only the beginning. Dennis Ross is accused of putting Israel's interests above American interests. Dennis Ross counters with a not entirely unreasonable suggestion that Obama should pay a little bit more attention to Iran's rush to build nuclear bombs, and a little bit less attention to the fact that Jews continue to insult Moslems' sensibilities by residing in the ancient Jewish city of Jerusalem.
In addition, I cannot forget to mention a rather peculiar argument proposed by the Wright-Ayers wing in the Obama administration. Some unnamed kommissar said that dropping the issue of Jerusalem would completely undermine Obama's credibility in the Middle East. It's only fair to ask - why did Obama put himself in a position that his credibility depended on whether Israel would forbid the Jews to live in Jerusalem? How dumb was it on his part to make a big deal out of it? Hasn't he been told about the Jewish connection to the city of Jerusalem? It's like asking Moslems to give up Mecca and Medina, and tell the Pope to move Vatican to Detroit.
Another interesting argument was proposed by a left-wing anti-Zionist writer for New Yorker, David Remnick. Dave acknowledges that Israeli public is deeply distrustful of Obama administration. He also says that Israelis completely misread president Obama. Given that there is probably little distance between the mouth of a NY liberal and Obama's ears, I presume Obama took the words of David to heart and decided to come clean with the Jews and remove all misunderstanding - just watch his treatment of Bibi Netanyahu. According to FoxNews in June 2009 "A new poll shows only 6 percent of Israeli Jews see President Barack Obama's administration as pro-Israel, while 50 percent see it as pro-Palestinian." After Obama's recent attempts to educate Israeli people about his attitude towards the "Zionist entity", it's likely that Jews will see more clearly his policies, and the number of people who see Obama as pro-Israel or who formed no opinion will drastically drop. Thanks for educating the masses, Barry.
