Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is canceling a scheduled meeting with Barack Obama at the White House tomorrow to return to Israel to deal with the fallout of the raid by Israeli forces to enforce the Gaza blockade on a flotilla of ships trying to run the blockade, MSNBC reports.
Netanyahu is in Canada today. YNET News reports he is cutting his trip short in Canada to leave for Israel.
Looks like he has a real mess on his hands back home.
Goota love him! He handles a crises the way obamination can only dream of.
Now the _resident can meet with the Arizona Gov., right?
Good for Bibi!
Obama’s on vacation anyway playing hoops and golf. Israel is obviously more important than meeting up with the Muslim Kenyan
Good. Maybe Obama has time to see the Arizona Governor after all.
Maybe enough news to deflect from the earthshattering barbq at Bambi's.......
It would have been even more fun, though, if (in the absence of this incident) Bibi had simply announced, “We don’t have any meaningful business to discuss, so I don’t want to interfere with Mr. Obama’s fixing the oil-well leak.”
I am praying for Israel. But, I’m not worried!!
why on earth would he be meeting theOne anyway? it’s not like any good will come of it.
Rumors that the White House told him not to come right now. After his last snubbing thousands of liberal Jewish financial supporters of the Dems went nuts. Now Obama needs to mend his financial fences...but he can’t be seen being nice to BB until after the liberal media takes him apart over this...and they will.
What a wasted opportunity.
I’m sure Obammie the Commie would have offered him some sage advice from his years of experience and accomplishments...advice that would have brought peace and prosperity to the region while enabling Israel to defender herself and run her own affairs with safety and dignity.
Iran is watching this development with great interest.
The moment the Obama Administration signals that it would not help defend Israel from an Iranian attack, the MULLAH’s JUST MIGHT ACT.
Ironically, Obama’s stance of appeasing these terrorist supporters might actually TRIGGER the war, not prevent one.
“Looks like he has a real mess on his hands back home.”
Yep and the media is working on making it even bigger and bigger by the minute. Guess BB wasn’t interested in a lecture by the snot-nosed boyKing. Can’t say that I blame him.
You mean not all leaders go on vacation when faced with a crisis????
Obama is now spared the major inconvenience of pretending to care what happens to Israel.
