Netanyahu ‘spat in our face,’ White House officials say

The White House’s outrage over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to speak before Congress in March — a move he failed to coordinate with the administration — began to seep through the diplomatic cracks on Friday, with officials telling Haaretz the Israeli leader had “spat” in President Barack Obama’s face.

“We thought we’ve seen everything,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed senior US official as saying. “But Bibi managed to surprise even us.

“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,” he said.

    Newsflash: Obama viscerally hates Israel to death. In other news, it was reported today that the sky is sometimes blue.

    • I hope Netanyahu humiliates him again, repeatedly actually.

      • DVult

        I’d like to do more than spit in Imbecile’s stupid face.

  • lgeubank

    Obama is a miniature Jeremiah Wright, only smaller. He dislikes Jews, like many lowbrow, dim-witted blacks.

    And of course, Mussolini for Morons makes his own prejudices U.S. governmental policy.

      Kerry’s no brighter than Obama.

        C’mon, “You’ve Got a Friend” has changed French foreign policy!

        • Justin St.Denis

          And probably killed James Taylor’s career. And that’s a good thing.

          • DVult

            He was all set for a comeback too.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Lurch has comedic value, OTOH

      On the upside, this is the first time Boehner has shown any sign of possessing gonads…

        • Lloyd Snauwaert

          You’re probably right…*sigh*

  • Frau Katze

    Does Obama get on well with any foreign leader? He’s not interested in foreign affairs. He was a small time “community organizer” from Chicago. His interests are very limited.

    He (and Kerry) are dreadful as leaders.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Spitting in Obama’s face is otherwise known as leadership. Netanyahu is filling in the vacuum created by Obama’s defeatism.

  • Jim Horne

    Is the White House outrage further proof of Obama’s incompetence?

    Yes indeed. When it comes to foreign policy of any kind this president has repeatedly shown himself to be a community activist and totally out of his depth in foreign relations. The sooner a Rep[ublican Congress and a Republican Senate clip this president’s wings the better.

  • winniec

    Correction: the Republican congress did it. They showed their contempt for Obama’s ongoing spitting in the face of Israel.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    That’s what you get when you continually piss on Bibi’s carpet….

  • So some unnamed senior official said “and that there will be a price”.

    What does that mean?

    Is Obama going to tacitly approve (Hamas) rockets or a terror attack on Israel?

    Obama during his remaining time in office will do what ever he can to push his Muslim agenda. He knows he is a lame duck. And his personal jihad calls.

    You can be sure he will try to make it look as if he had nothing to do with it. But he is such a fool, even the democrats will cringe.

  • New Centurion

    A price to pay….hmmm, once again President McDreamy has proven that he is not a petty, immature, vindictive, self-absorbed individual. Way to go Barry!

    • He is a peevish lout.

      • Justin St.Denis

        President ThinArabSkin can be depended upon to do what thin skinned ARABS are famous for. Count on it.

  • MannieP

    Zerobama throwing another tantrum.

  • Achmed

    All the je– I mean all the israeli’s will learn their lessons and bow before the Mahdi when they learn who Barrack Hussein Obama really is and he rules The World!

  • Maggat

    Spat in his face? More like a slap up the side of O’bumbler’s head. Good on Netanyahu and Congress.
