Obama Continues to Snub Israeli Leaders, Refuses All NY Meetings
Arutz Sheva - Israel National News ^ | 9/20/2012, 3:26 PM | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 09/20/2012 6:32:02 AM PDT by justlittleoleme

Tensions between Israel and the current U.S. administration further deteriorated last week when President Barack Obama refused to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during his upcoming visit to New York, where he will address the UN General Assembly.

The White House insisted that the meeting would not take place due to the president’s pressing “campaign obligations” which would take him out of New York.

Obama has further snubbed Israeli leaders by refusing to meet with Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who will also be in New York next week, WND news station reported.

Why would a moslem want to meet with a Jew?

Guess Obamie doesn’t need the Jewish vote or their money. As the Anti-Christ he probably doesnt want to be associated with the Chosen people of God and needs to have them step out of the way while he sets up his demionic one world Islamic government.

The pirate picture was taken in 2009. It was released only to make us look stupidly.

Bathhouse Barry hasn’t got time to meet with the Prime Minister of a key ally that is facing potential destruction from an implaccably hostile enemy...

...but he has time to meet with a jerk dressed like a PHUCKING PIRATE! http://poorrichardsnews.com/post/31880410191/for-real-obama-has-oval-office-meeting-with-pirate-on

Take a look at the link in Post #8 - this was tweeted by Obama this week.

In any case, his head is up his arrrrrrrrse.

“Obama ... Refuses all NY Meetings...”

SUCH hypocrisy from Obama!! when he was just in town to meet with Letterman, Jay Z and Beyonce!! My daughter who goes to law school (she is a 3L) in Virginia happened to be in mid-town Manhattan on Tuesday since she had a job interview. She had booked a discount hotel room that was in the Times Times Square area (otherwise she would have avoided Times Square).

Anyway she was trying to get to the subway to take her down to the East Village where my other daughter lives. Broadway in that area and major streets were shut down by security for Obama’s Letterman appearance and this was early afternoon. She said that people were not happy about the major inconvenience. Maybe some of these liberal New Yorkers will start to wake up?? All of this hassle and security for the Letterman show and no meeting with Israeli leaders!! Such a double standard that man has!! He is a Moslem with sick priorities- I have no doubts.

NOT THAT I’M SAYING THIS IS HAPPENING but ....

If the US and Israel had cooked up an October surprise for Iran this is exactly the sort of thing that would be used as cover.

Again, full disclaimers.

I must be too jaded. I still believe the popular jewish vote will be overwhelmingly for obama.

Whatever has turned them into podpeople, I'm glad I'm immune from it and am grateful that Israel is also and is preparing for the next test.

I hope and pray that God will forgive us for obama and that the consequences for our giving him such power and making him our spokesman don't destroy us.

Why should Obama meet with the Israelis? It's obvious that he's got the Jewish vote locked up no matter what he does with Israel, so he can spend his time shoring up his Muslim outreach. Perhaps he'll announce an expansion of his Outer Space Is For Muslims, Too® initiative on the day Bibi is in town just to make it totally clear where he stands.

In every direction, Obama is serving notice that he believes what he is doing is a winning formula whether it's high energy prices, high unemployment, weakening our defenses, supporting our enemies, or abandoning our allies, most especially Israel. With the election appearing to be close and his popularity and approval still in the 40s when they should be in the teens, he appears to be right.

It's long past time to expect people to wake up. They're not going to on their own. That's an ominous and massively scary thought, but better to recognize and understand the landscape and what needs to be done than continue to say that we can't believe what he's doing. Well, it's been almost four years of this and it's going to be another four if the fight isn't taken to him directly and out there to the public.

This is DERELICTION OF DUTY (not that he's ever been 'on duty' for the last 3.5 yrs) .... putting himself before the country .... then again, what else have we come to expect from this guy? He should be dragged out of the WH kicking and screaming now. He has ruined the country's economy, fomented class warfare and racial conflict, and pretty much set the Middle East on fire and left Israel to the wolves. His State Department has blood up their eyebrows with the deaths of 4 Americans and this @sshat clown is out running around in Las Vegas, on Letterman, partying with Beyonce/JayZ ..... and there is still a good chance he'll be re-elected for four more? Un-frickin'-believable.

“Guess Obamie doesn’t need the Jewish vote or their money”

Obama got 77% of the Jewish vote last time and I bet he takes the same this time, too. They knew what he was last time around but most Jews are liberal.

I saw a poll about 2 weeks ago that had him at 59% of the Jewish vote - before the latest nonsense in the Mideast and the repeated snubs of Bibi, which should cut into even that diminished number.

And even if he has the Jewish vote locked up,in terms of actual numbers it really doesn't amount to much.

What is really of great import is where is the Jewish money,that may very well be with Obama and that is what counts.

With all due respect, the only place the Jewish vote matters is Florida. NY is heavily Jewish, but it’s going for Obama anyhow. Hopefully, Obama has alienated 5-10 percent of the Jewish population that could make the difference if Florida is close. But, don’t forget folks: The Dems had a Conservative Jew for their VP in 2000 and still lost.

Your #31, excellent points. It really might not matter the Jewish vote outside of FLA.

This whole scenario of him not meeting with the Jews, but meeting with the Muslim brotherhood needs to be made into an ad and broadcasted across America.

If Israel goes down, so goes the United States as our spiritual underpinnings will have been destroyed. America’s Christian community and small Jewish religious minority will not be able to sustain themselves with their Old Testament underpinnings torn asunder, left open then to the struggle twixt Islam and Communism...which Islam will ultimately win as it believes in something other than the self.

The world’s days will become even more filled with Evil, and darker than ever before.

Obama, as a Muslim, knows this, and is determined to bring it, even is it means eventually martyring himself, not caring for his family, nor anything other than jihad, and taking as many of us as he can with him.

As We, as a nation - and Israel - have always needed God’s help, We certainly need it now.
