Earlier this week, I remarked that President Obamaâ€™s Will has emerged as a political factor to be reckoned with. Now it appears his temper also needs to be considered. Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner' Giles Whittell, Washington, and James Hider, Jerusalem Times Online. March 25, 2010 reports
For a head of state 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... After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisors and â€?let me know if there is anything newâ€?
Obama was apparently annoyed by the Israelis trying to show with flow charts that their Prime Minister was not in the line of command in the recent Biden-discomforting Jerusalem construction announcement. They has better wise up. To Obama, Palestinians = Browns= Good. Israelis=Whites=Bad. Obama does not like Whites. (It's all in Steve Sailer's book!) Arrogantly timed PR blunders simply are a pretext to show this. The Israelis did get off a Parthian shot. They claim they
decided that they could not trust the phone line they had been lent. Mr Netanyahu retired with his defence minister, Ehud Barak, to the Israeli Embassy to ensure the Americans were not listening in.
Great. Netanyahu's political enemies in Israel are gloating up a storm. VDARE.com is not directly concerned with the Palestine question. But between Obama and the Israeli Prime Minister, we have no doubt who cares more about his countrymen
