Obama Won’t Speak to Netanyahu… But Visits Indian Leader 10 Days Before Election
The fact that Benjamin Netanyahu put his country’s security before Barack Obama’s feelings has the White House thoroughly upset.
Netanyahu,will speak before a joint session of Congress on March 3rd. Netanyahu will reportedly tell Congress that Islamic extremism is on the rise and that Iran should not be trusted during negotiations over its nuclear program.
in response to this the Obama White House announced last week that President Barack Obama will not meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his upcoming visit in March… citing “the proximity to the Israeli election.”
But, that didn’t stop him from visiting India…
In yet another sign this administration lied through its teeth in using a pending election as an excuse for both Kerry and Obama to refuse to meet with Netanyahu, Obama’s travel to India ahead of the February 7th Delhi election has stirred up some controversy.
AAP leader Kumar Vishwas charged that BJP is trying to politicise US President Obama’s visit to gain political mileage ahead of Delhi polls.
