It has long been clear the disdain with which President Obama holds Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Not surprisingly this contempt extends to a number of officials within the Obama Administration. In a series of interviews conducted by Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, one Obama official refers to Netanyahu as “chickens#@t” and the “only thing he cares about his political survival.” As if Obama doesn’t care about such things.
This same official also said Netanyahu was “afraid to start wars.” This from the Administration whose red line Syria crossed without consequence. For good measure, this official said Netanyahu was “no Rabin, Sharon and certainly not Begin.” This is precious considering how Rabin, Sharon and Begin have long been bogeymen of the Left.
Another official called Netanyahu “a coward, arrogant” and said he has “Asperger’s Syndrome”.
It’s too bad that Iran and ISIS don’t inspire such contempt from the Obama Administration.
Naftali Bennett, Israel’s Minister of the Economy and Leader of the religious Jewish Home Party, was angered by the article. “No leader of Syria who massacres 150,000 of his citizens and not the leader of Saudi Arabia who stones women and gay men were called chickens#@t. If what is written is true, then the current administration intends to throw Israel under the wheels of a bus.”
Oh, it’s gone well beyond intent. Israel has been thrown under the Obama bus and its wheels have been running back and forth over it.
From where I sit, Netanyahu should wear the contempt and disdain of the Obama Administration as a badge of honor.
