Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

"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 Binyamin 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, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US 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”.

  1. "Sources said that Mr Netanyahu failed to impress Mr Obama with a flow chart purporting to show that he was not responsible for the timing of announcements of new settlement projects in east Jerusalem. Mr Obama was said to be livid when such an announcement derailed the visit to Israel by Joe Biden, the Vice-President, this month and his anger towards Israel does not appear to have cooled."

  2. What does Bibi expect?

  3. The usual anan... An extended, drooling tongue running up and down his fetid ass..Hasn't that been the case since Harry Truman?

  4. Not since Harry Truman. Ike was pro Arab.

    Harry was less pro Israeli than Stalin and the Eastern block.

    In fact even in the 1960s there was a lot of anti Israeli sentiments because they were "communists" or "socialists" and too close to the Soviets.

    In practice the Israelis were courting both the US and USSR. Still court Russia very heavily. Notice the number of secret trips Bibi has made to Russia.

    Israel likes to steal US technology and sell it to Russia.
