Well, much of America hates Obama and loves Israel, so we’re even, and the enraged Obama just can’t handle those facts.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s election victory could derail two of President Obama’s top foreign-policy goals — a peace agreement with the Palestinians and a nuclear deal with Iran, experts said Wednesday.
“Netanyahu has just been re-elected by a significant margin and is more than likely to form a government that will keep him stable and in power for three to four more years,” Reuven Hazan, a professor of political science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, told NBC News.
“So if they can’t mend the fences? It’s a lame-duck administration in the US. Netanyahu will just try to buy time until it passes.”
Ignoring Obama would also play well at home, and the breach between the pair may be too broad to repair, others said.
“While the United States is loved and beloved in Israel, President Obama is not,” Robert Danin, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, told The Washington Post.
“They have six years of accumulated history. That’s going to put limits on how far they can go together. I think we’re just going to see a continued friction and tension, but perhaps at a reduced volume.”
Meanwhile, the petulant man-child has time for his silly basketball picks Wednesday but no time to call Netanyahu to congratulate him on his huge victory. That speaks volumes.
While world leaders called Netanyahu Wednesday to offer congratulations on his stunning victory, Obama did not.
Earnest said the delay was standard protocol and the president would make the call in a few days, once Israel’s president calls on Netanyahu to form the new government.
Sure he will. Obama always loves calling his enemies, right?
