WH Officials: Netanyahu ‘Spat in Our Face’ Over Boehner Invitation
THEY ARE NAMELESS AND BY REMAINING NAMELESS THEY ARE COWARDS
NY Times accuses Netanyahu of ‘playing politics on Iran’
Paper calls PM’s imminent speech to Congress ‘a breach of sense,’ wonders how he believes disrespecting Obama will help Israel.
ACTUALLY THE NEW YORK TIMES ACCUSATION IS DEVASTATING FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND SEC. KERRY. IT SAYS THAT THESE 2 INDIVIDUALS ARE SO PETTY THAT THEY WILL SACRIFICE THE NATIONAL INTERESTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THEIR PERSONAL EGOS.
PM ruining US ties for election speech, Lapid and Livni say
In separate interviews, Netanyahu’s former allies accuse him of hurting Israel’s security to gain favor with right-wing voters
WHEN WERE THEY EVER ALLIES?….THIS IS THE SAME TZPI LIVINI THAT MET WITH STATE DEPARTMENT AND WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS BEHIND THE BACK OF PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU AND URGED THE US GOVERNMENT TO EXERCISE “TOUGH LOVE” WITH THE PRIME MINISTER AND WITH ISRAEL.
White House officials angrily denounced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for responding favorably to House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to speak before Congress in March, telling the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that the prime minister had “spat” in President Barack Obama’s face.
THESE ARE THE SAME ANONYMOUS WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS WHO, WELL BEFORE THIS INCIDENT ,UNILATERALLY ATTACKED PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU BY CALLING HIM “CHICKEN SHIT” AND THEN LEAKED THESE INSULTS TO THE MEDIA. THIS CERTAINLY WAS OBAMA VERY PUBLICLY SPITTING IN THE FACE OF PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU AND ISRAEL.
“There are things you simply don’t do. He spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price,” an unnamed senior U.S. official said.
THIS “UNNAMED SENIOR U.S OFFICIAL” SHOULD BE PUBLICLY IDENTIFIED AND FIRED IMMEDIATELY. HE IS THREATENING ACTION BASED NOT ON WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE UNITED STATES AND/OR GOOD FOR ISRAEL BUT ON HIS PERSONAL FEELINGS. IF HE SPEAKS FOR THE PRESIDENT, SHAME ON THE PRESIDENT.
U.S. officials said that the “chickens***” epithet that an anonymous administration official used to describe the Israeli leader several months ago was mild compared to the language used in the White House when officials learned of Netanyahu’s planned speech to Congress.
THIS IS A CONFESSION THAT THESE “UNNAMED SENIOR OFFICIALS” STARTED THE BATTLE AND HAVE LONG HELD A RESENTMENT AGAINST PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU. BASED ON MY EXPOSURE TO THESE INDIVIDUALS I BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ALSO VERY ANTI-ISRAEL. THE CLOSING OF BEN-GURION AIRPORT SIGNALED TO HAMAS THAT THEY CAN TIE UP ISRAEL ECONOMICALLY BY JUST THROWING A FEW MISSILES IN THE DIRECTION OF THE AIRPORT. THE MISSILE THAT WAS THE REASON FOR SHUTTING DOWN THE AIRPORT FELL AT A LONG DISTANCE. OTHER AIRPORTS IN THE WORLD UNDER MORE ACTIVE HOSTILE FIRE WERE NEVER SHUT DOWN. THE INTERFERENCE WITH THE ROUTINE RESUPPLY OF THE IDF WAS ANOTHER EXAMPLE. THERE IS EXAMPLE AFTER EXAMPLE. IT IS NO ACCIDENT. THE PRIME MINISTER HAS COME TO THE UNITED STATES ON VARIOUS OCCASIONS AND DID NOT VISIT THE WHITE HOUSE. THE WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCING THEY WOULD NOT SEE HIM WAS GRATUITOUS SLAP. WASHINGTON INSIDERS UNDERSTAND THIS DIRTY GAME. HOPEFULLY, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WILL ALSO REALIZE HOW SHAMEFUL THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF BEHAVIOR IS. UNFORTUNATELY WHEN IT COMES TO MILITARY OR INTELLIGENCE DECISIONS, WHITE HOUSE POLITICAL CONSIDERATIONS AND THE WHITE HOUSE POLITICAL STAFF ARE DOMINANT. CHICAGO POLITICS AT ITS WORST HAS ENTERED THE NATIONAL ARENA AND PREVAILS AT THE VERY TOP OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
When he speaks before Congress in March, Netanyahu is expected to urge lawmakers to impose tougher sanctions on Iran in order to force it to stop its suspect nuclear program, The Times of Israel reported.
DON’T FORGET THE IRANIANS ADVANCED OFFENSIVE MISSILE PROGRAMS, THE IRANIANS AIR DEFENSE SYSTEMS PROGRAMS, THE ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF THE REVOLUTIONARY GUARDS IN LEBANON AND SYRIA, THE REESTABLISHMENT OF RELATIONSHIPS WITH HAMAS, THE ACTIVE INTERVENTION TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENTS OF YEMEN AND SAUDI ARABIA, ETC. ETC.
Haaretz reported that last week Obama personally demanded in a telephone conversation with Netanyahu that the Israeli leader tone down his support for new sanctions legislation — a measure Obama has promised to veto.
The Washington Post reported that Netanyahu’s apparent “disrespect” for the U.S. leadership was particularly offensive to Secretary of State John Kerry, who over the past month had made many efforts on Israel’s behalf on the world stage. This included dozens of calls to world leaders to convince them to oppose a U.N. Security Council resolution that would have set a time frame for establishment of a Palestinian state.
“The secretary’s patience is not infinite,” a source close to Kerry told the Post. “The bilateral relationship is unshakable. But playing politics with that relationship could blunt Secretary Kerry’s enthusiasm for being Israel’s primary defender.”
IF SEC. KERRY IS TOO TIRED OR DEMOTIVATED TO DO HIS JOB, HE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY STEP DOWN.
Meanwhile, Israel’s intelligence chief has denied Kerry’s claim that he contradicted Netanyahu, his boss, by criticizing new sanctions during a January meeting, saying that they would be akin to “throwing a grenade into the process.”
Mossad chief Tamir Pardo denied saying any such thing during a Jan. 19 meeting with U.S. officials. Instead, the Mossad director said he reiterated that “firm pressure” was needed “to bring about meaningful compromises from the Iranian side.”
THIS COMPLETELY FALSE STATEMENT WAS PLANTED IN THE MEDIA. THE FACT THAT THE STATEMENT WAS UNTRUE AND WAS MEANT TO UNDERCUT PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU IS ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE LENGTHS THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION WILL GO TO. THE PRESS SHOULD DEMAND THE SCALPS OF THE INDIVIDUALS WHO PLAYED THEM AS FOOLS. UNFORTUNATELY, TO THE SHAME OF THE PRESS, THEY WENT ALONG WILLINGLY WITH THIS EVIL CHARADE.
