Obama Treats Another Ally with Disrespect

March 26, 2010 at 07:47 (General Stupidity, News)

You don’t do this with any guest in your home, and you especially shouldn’t do it as the so-called leader of the free world. How humiliating – and we should be humiliated too. We (not me for God’s sake) elected this savage. This all boils down to Obama being a petulant child because he doesn’t get exactly what he wants. What a narcissistic fool he is. I wish at the very least that arrogant dictator would exercise some dignity and decorum.

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”.
