Barack Obama rejected calls from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid tensions over his Iranian peace deal. Then, later on, he told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pipe down about the deal.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectured Barack Obama in the Oval Office on the dangers facing the Jews back in May 2011.
It’s as if Israel is an enemy and not an ally to this administration.
Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu’s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program.
Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”
Netanyahu was also raked over the coals Sunday by he man he replaced in the prime minister’s bureau, Ehud Olmert, who accused him of bringing relations with the US to an “unprecedented” low point. However Netanyahu is showing no sign of flagging in his campaign against the policies of the US and the other P5+1 powers.
