During last week’s G-20 Summit in Cannes, President Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy were overheard discussing their mutual disdain for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Apparently, Obama and Sarkozy were still wearing microphones when Sarkozy said, “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar.” To which Obama replied, “You’re fed up? I have to deal with him everyday.”
I suppose Obama and Sarkozy think Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is a peach and Hamas to be a largely secular organization with fine, upstanding gentlemen in its ranks.
It’s too bad that Obama and Sarkozy don’t save their disdain for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs in Iran. Well, with friends like these who needs enemies?
