Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has sent condolences to Prime Minister Netanyahu on the death of his father, Ben Zion Netanyahu z"l (of blessed memory).
[P]resumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney extended his condolences today to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the death of his father.
Ben-Zion Netanyahu, a historian and Zionist activist, died today in Israel. He was 102.
Romney called the Israeli prime minister his "friend" in his statement. The two men have been friends for years, and their relationship was forged in the 1970s when they were young up-and-comers sizing up companies for the Boston Consulting Group.
"This is a loss for all of Israel and for all who care about Israel," Romney said about the elder Netanyahu's death.
As of this writing, there is no word from President Obama.

Obama will be like “Oh crap, I have to pretend for a moment I give a damn about the Jews, better send out one of my usual fake condolences so I can get the Jewish vote”
I lost my father at a much younger age. Miss him terribly.
ping to article
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Quick, send him a Zune.
It actually would not surprise me
Or a copy of Mein Kampf.

Shhhh, Don't give Barry any ideas.
Precisely. He’ll have to have one of his secular Jews on his WH staff write it for him.
Condolences to the Netanyahu family. May God comfort you.
Prayers UP for the family. Pray also that ‘gene pool’ runs deep.
Hussein and Shrillary have been dependably less than kind to Israel all these past years they’ve had any power to relate to Israel. How the U.S. treats Israel MATTERS; a lot as far as I can read in Scriptures. - We’re skating on thin ice with this Muslim sympathizer and his cronies in power now.
I just read his obituary today. Prayers for the prime minister and his family and I hope he enjoys as long a life as his father. Good to see at least one candidate offering condolences (although I’m sure President Bush and Dick Cheney did so privately) You won’t see any of it in the news.
Amen. I was pleased to learn his age.
Thankful dear Bibi’s father lived for so many good many years.
Remember the good times, sauropod. I remember going with my Dad catching nightcrawlers in my Grammas' back yard, so we could go fishing.
Stay well ........................................................ FRegards
I always copy the media when I offer condolences to my close friends.
