Via Times of Israel:
The Israeli government on Wednesday accused the White House of lying by denying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had requested to meet US President Barack Obama later this month in the US.
The accusation will likely serve to further escalate diplomatic tensions between the two countries, which have ramped up in recent days.
We requested a meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York and also suggested that the prime minister could come to Washington, for a meeting, a senior government official in Jerusalem told the German DPA news agency on Wednesday.
White House spokesman Tommy Vietor had said earlier that no such request was made or rejected.
On Tuesday evening, after reports surfaced claiming Obama refused to meet Netanyahu during his short US trip later this month reportedly due to a scheduling issue it seemed like bilateral relations were headed toward a serious crisis.
But later that night, the president called Netanyahu and the two leaders spoke for about an hour, seemingly calming the situation.

Apparently Netanyahu did not get the message, meetings must be part of a fund raiser.
Obama lies? Does the wind blow?
Obama is a busy guy, he cant meet with Netanyahu because he needs to make ANOTHER appearance on Letterman
I can only suggest that Netanyahu reach out to David Letterman to see if he can get a guest spot on the same night.
This is BAD! The Israelis are our greatest allies, and they’re calling out our President as a liar.
This is very, very bad. Been trying to get comments from some friends in Israel, but they’ve been on communication lockdown since yesterday.
Obama would never lie.
He has perfect credentials and documents.
This does not fit in.
I personally think this is a calculated move by the Muslim Boy King -— the Admin is preparing to Condemn Isreal and stay ‘nuetral’ when Isreal attacks Iran and he is creating ‘tensions’ now to support our turning our back on them when it happens.
The Israeli Government knows they won’t be around much longer if Obama is reelected.
Any American Jew who votes for Obama is signing a death warrant for thousands, perhaps millions, of Jews in Israel.
I wonder how much longer they will wait to attack Iran? IF Obama wins they are screwed.
Better yet, Mitt Romney and Netanyahu should have a highly publicized meeting while Obama is making jokes with Letterman.
Maybe Letterman will do a joke about Obama's daughter being raped like he did about Sara Palin's.
The press is the enemy of our Republic. And I read somewhere that nearly all the press people pay NO income taxes, or they are cheating on their income taxes. PRESS PEOPLE ===PAY YOUR TAXES ! You will be turned in!
I bet they attack before the election. That way, Obama will have Romney breathing down his neck which will force him to react pro-Israel.
BE CAREFUL!!!We all know how powerful those commies are..
