President Obama Continues to Demonstrate Lack of
Respect for US-Israeli Relationship
During the G20 Summit last week in Cannes, France, President Obama was heard making disparaging remarks about the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
President Sarkozy called Netanyahu a "liar" to which President Obama responded, "You're fed up with him - I have to deal with him everyday." The conversation was leaked after both men were overheard when they believed their microphones had been switched off.
Yet again, President Obama has shown a serious lack of judgement with his comments regarding the Israeli Prime Minister. His comments place an even greater strain on an already tense relationship between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu because of the Obama Administration's careless and caustic approach to the United States' relationship with Israel.
Earlier this year, President Obama created tension when he called on Israel to return to their pre-1967 borders in negotiations with Palestinians.
Call President Obama and tell him it is time to start treating Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel with respect!
