Donít second guess me again: Netanyahu to US
NY Post ^ | August 2, 2014 | 5:50am

WASHINGTON — Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again” on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

An Israeli official said the Netanyahu government viewed both Hamas and Qatar as having violated the commitment given to the U.S. and the U.N. and that it expected the international community to take practical steps as part of a “strong and swift response,” especially regarding the return of the abducted soldier.

In a phone call with U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, Netanyahu vented his anger, according to people familiar with the call.

Netanyahu told Shapiro the Obama administration was “not to ever second-guess me again” and that Washington should trust his judgment on how to deal with Hamas, according to the people. Netanyahu added that he now “expected” the U.S. and other countries to fully support Israel’s offensive in Gaza, according to those familiar with the call. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name.

They said Netanyahu made similar points to Kerry, who himself denounced the attack as “outrageous,” saying it was an affront to assurances to respect the cease-fire given to the United States and United Nations, which brokered the truce.

Kerry should (and probably does) know that 'cease fires' are a device used to reinforce troops when you are in bad shape, like calling for a 'time out' in a ball game that is going badly.

Some people can't be negotiated with. What is anyone going to say that will make Hamas quit being a terrorist organization?

——President Barack Obama demanded that those responsible release the soldier.——

The demand says volumes about Barack Obama.

He doesn’t understand the basic process is war. Combatants are killed and captured. The depth of misunderstanding of basic war and the continued futility of trying to reduce actual war to some sort of criminal activity indicates the depth of Obama’s naievete. War can not be resolved in a court room nor conference table. The single most important component of peace is spilled blood not pious utterances.

The 60’s pacifist is just plain lost when he enters the reality of world affairs

The return of a combatant can not rationally be be demanded by an irrelevant third party.

By not naming those responsible the demander admits not knowing who is responsible.

In the vernacular, every day Obama stands before a microphone and shows the world his ass. Pitiful.

Other than attempting to appease the terrorist-loving nimrods of the UN, the enemedia, and anti-semitic libtards, I’m not exactly sure why Bibi would have agreed to anything brought forth by horse face or the jug-eared ass clown.

Obama has clearly chosen the side of discivilization and offended Israel.

Finally.

The desperate end of Obama now begins. Lets hope it is fast enough to save America.

G-d be with Israel. Crush her enemies on all sides Father and strengthen the IDF. Confuse those who seek to harm Israeli citizens and cause their plans to collapse. Jesus, In your Holy name I pray. Amen.

The fact that an America-hating idiot such as John Kerry holds such an important US government position is an affront to decency and common sense.

“some Israelis and American pro-Israel groups complaining that the U.S. was treating the group - a foreign terrorist organization as designated by the State Department - as a friend.”

Can’t imagine where would they get such an idea... (/sarc)

I’m just happy that Bibi finally said it out loud and in public.

I don’t expect Obama to give up his quest for the destruction of America, Israel, and a free and prosperous West.

The fact that the American electorate voted FOR this administration, twice, shows that too many Americans don't have either decency or common sense. Too many are more concerned about free abortions, free birth control, gay marriage, EBT, and the printed stimulus drunk stock market.

Will the American electorate wise up in time to save this country is anyone's guess.

They (unfortunately our leaders) upon the wrong side of the fence in ME affairs should just butt out. If they can’t help Israel, they should not get involved at all.
