The PJ Tatler » Breaking: Obama Turns Down Meeting with Israeli PM Netanyahu

White House declines Netanyahu request to meet with Obama - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

''The White House's response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting Obama.''

Breaking: Obama Turns Down Meeting with Israeli PM Netanyahu


Haaretz reports:
The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.
An official in Jerusalem said that the prime minister’s office sent the White House a message stating that although Netanyahu will spend only two and a half days on U.S. soil, he is interested in meeting Obama and is willing to travel to the U.S. capital specifically for that purpose. The official added that the White House rejected the request and said that at this time Obama’s schedule does not allow for a meeting.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak reportedly tried smoothing things over, but Bibi is having none of it.
“The world tells Israel ‘wait, there’s still time’. And I say, ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel,” Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday.
“Now if Iran knows that there is no red line. If Iran knows that there is no deadline, what will it do? Exactly what it’s doing. It’s continuing, without any interference, towards obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs,” he said.

I'm pretty sure President Obama is a busy man. Netanyahu will get over it.

Since when does the President of the United States have to drop everything to be fit into a 2-day schedule of a leader who is coming to this country for a reason other than to visit with the President?

Good.
Bibi needs to get over himself.

Go for it, Israel!

You go interfere with Iran!

The USA sends you enough money for your war toys; it's about time you used them on someone other than rock-throwing Palestinians.

Whatsamatta? Don't have the nerve?
Want America to take all the chances?

Wimps.

We don't know that this story is true.

Even if it is it is reasonable to ask who leaked the story and why. Are some of you so lacking in imagination that you can't even imagine that Netanyahu intentionally requested the meeting and then leaked the response in order to help Romney's campaign?

Obama is busy campaigning. Why would he have time for allies that he hates? I can't wait to see him booted from office.

Obama said he's not going to Israel unless you re-elect him.

I wouldn't doubt this for a second. They had quite the bromance going this summer.

Not shocking at all for those who have seen D'Souza's documentary 2016. There's a clue there.
