The new report out today (from the G-20 meeting November 3) is shameful and embarrassing for President Obama and French President Sarkozy. It highlights the arrogant anti-Semitism of this US administration. It is yet another example of why Obama’s approval ratings are so low in both the US and in Israel.
“I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar,” Sarkozy told Obama, unaware that the microphones in their meeting room had been switched on, enabling reporters in a separate location to listen in to a simultaneous translation.
“You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you,” Obama replied, according to the French interpreter. Yahoo News 11-08-11
There are two shocking observations here. The first is the obvious gut level disrespect for the Prime Minister of Israel. This was not for public consumption, but actual personal opinions of Netanyahu. It is not surprising given the public disrespect shown toward him by our President. However, there is something visceral and unsettling to hear it from his heart, so to speak.
The second shock, as you dig deeper into the story, involves the attempt to muzzle the media. All the reporters who overheard the remarks were asked and consented to signing an agreement to not release the details. Every one of those “journalists” should be fired immediately. Why do they even exist if not to report the news. Does anyone seriously believe it was not “newsworthy”? They were muzzled because of the “sensitive nature” of the remarks. Hello? Does the attitude of two leaders of the free world matter? When overwhelming pressure is applied for Israeli concessions, is this news? You betcha!
Pray that Israel will wise up and recognize that their so-called allies are only out for their own best interests, not Israel’s. We have read the end of the Book. We know that all the nations are going to come against Israel. It has begun.
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Joel 3:2
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith Yehovah, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. Zephaniah 3:8
