JERUSALEM The White House has not released any official photos of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting this week with President Obama just one of several signs indicating a rift between the two leaders.
Netanyahu arrived in the U.S. last weekend to address a convention of Jewish leaders. The prime minister's office had for weeks attempted to schedule a meeting with Obama, but no meeting was officially confirmed until Netanyahu was already on a plane on his way to Washington, sources in Netanyahu's office said.
The only photos available to the media so far have been pictures of Netanyahu entering and exiting the White House. Any official photos taken of Obama and Netanyahu have not been released.
Neither Netanyahu nor Obama's team had scheduled any press conferences after the meeting, contrary to usual custom. Sources close to Netanyahu told WND the Israeli team canceled media briefings at the request of the U.S. administration.

I prefer to think Bibi said no to a photo op with Hussein.
One is a man, the other is prompter-reader.
“Benjamin Netanyahu is looking more and more like the real current leader of the free world.”
Oh, wouldn’t that be a relief.
Bibi, please save us from Obama.
Wow, that’s a scary line of succession.
Bibi’s people have said that they will attack before Christmas if things are not resolved with Iran. He probably told BOZO the date the attack will take place and King Fear was upset.

“you and your people are on your own for a while”
You forget God. He’s there.
"It would not please his Muslim cohorts in the Middle East. The ones he bows to."
Doesn’t want to insult his Iranian friends ...
0bambi has known this from his Indonesian days at the heel of Lolo Soetero, following him to and from mosque.
Rahm is the Grinch.
some people speakin’ their minds.........
It’s from WingNutDaily. Consider the source, folks.
“Bibi practically forced this meeting on Obama”
How do you know this? i kind of doubt it.
i don’t think it is in Netanyahu’s interest to push the relationship now.
So what is Rahm?
He is a Kenite, those who say they are Jews but are not.
I don’t think Obama trusts Biden, and I think the analysis is definitely on. If you out the guy, and we have to impeach him, I’ll definitely be a better friend that the current Jihadi occupying the seat.
Main point of contention is that Israel has to fly over Iraq which is American controlled airspace to get to Tehran.
Obama would have to grant our military permission to allow that. I think he's telling Netanyahu that any attack is a no-go.
Personally, I hope we have enough true patriots in the military that might disobey a White House order to interfere with an Israeli attack. You know, some times communications just don't get through......
