Netanyahu’s Meeting with Obama Will Be Neither Friendly Nor Productive

President Barack Obama in an interview with Jeff Goldberg in the Oval Office, Feb. 27, 2014. The language he used to describe Israel's needs for a 2-state solution was the tired, old leftist dogma circa 1993.

Because they have nothing real to sell. Because they know the next ruler at the PA is Hamas, and then we’ve gotten ourselves a second Gaza strip. Because they want Israel to be taken down a few pegs.

Israel scares the Western world. When Israel is permitted to thrive beyond its pestering security concerns, it outperforms every single country in the world. An independent Israel, free from the murderous chaos which the next year is harboring for us, courtesy of Obama and Kerry, can change the face of the region. This must not be permitted, because the stronger Israel gets, the less control the U.S. can exert over it.

U.S. and Israeli policies never completely complemented each other. But this may be the first time in these two countries’ history, that their interests are so contradictory to each other. Most decidedly because of the way the man in the White House thinks.

Netanyahu is not about to meet with a friend or an ally in the White House. He’s meeting with an enemy emperor.

  1. Red Coat says:

    Obama is a Muslim

  2. Obama isn’t just a fool but a dangerous fool that can’t be trusted ! must be that good Muslim schooling he received as a young jihadist

  3. Larry Thomas says:

    Bibi has more important things to do than meet with O – like sorting his sock drawer . . .

  4. It’s my way, or the highway, with Mr. Obama.

  5. He can try to to bring Israel down a few pegs but God takes down puffed up man like obama. Israel will never lose but America will with this regime’s leadership if you can call it that.

  6. Looks like the Jewish Press has become really popular with hillbillies. I always wonder how many people reading Jewish Press are actually Jews.

  7. Hoping this is not true!!!!!

  8. Give the palestinian citizenship and possibilies, Obama. They are let down by the world, not by Israel. So the ******* is the world.

  9. Obysmal is only friendly to Muslims… :(

  10. AIPAC will assuredly be friendly and productive!

  11. Ken Man says:

    Jason do you really believe execution is justice, if we all become obamaites all believing to be right, all killing a dissenting view we become just as bad as jihadists and politicians

  12. Mr prime minister don’t believe that guy in White House

  13. Mr prime minister don’t believe that guy in White House

  14. Just A Big Waste of Time and Money.

  15. Judy Jay says:

    here do you get your information? Obviously, you don’t do your homework before putting such untruths and hateful things in your comments.

  16. Karen Bryant says:

    If anyone needs to be taken down a few pegs its the impostor in the White House .

  17. Judith Ross says:

    Well said, Israel to Obama is like a buzzing fly when trying to sleep, but just remember, Mr. President, Jews and Israel have contributed to this world more than any other peoples in proportion of the population. Wake up and smell the roses and the Sabras!!

  18. Gil Gilman says:

    Excellent…President Obama, and his familiar, John Kerry, remind of nothing so much as spokesment for a product that has benn demonstrated by independent testing labs to have been deluding the public, like imported extra virgin olive oil which failed to pass any of seven tests, or Subway sandwhich bread imbued with a plastic chemical used in yoga mats, yet these to spokespersons and theirentire coterie of numbskulls continue their parading in front of the cameras, telling us how wonderful these products are for us. And don't forget the Naked Juice lawsuit. Both that juice and the Obama administrations foriegn policy have perpetrated a massive fraud on the American public, not to mention its "allies."

  19. Stand for Israel and against obama

  20. Don't think Israel is the only one having these "Obama moments"… any sit down with Obama is a disaster – we've watch the exchanges with Putin, Syria, Libya, Egypt, North Korea, etc. Obama hasn't come out the winner with any of them – so don't worry – be happy.

  21. Don't think Israel is the only one having these "Obama moments"… any sit down with Obama is a disaster – we've watch the exchanges with Putin, Syria, Libya, Egypt, North Korea, etc. Obama hasn't come out the winner with any of them – so don't worry – be happy.

  22. Cary Cowell says:

    As he destroys America so any country that will become Muslim ,working for the same for Israel .

  23. Nice Guy says:

    when ISRAEL makes a deal/signs a treaty: THE WORLD (USA and EUROPE) HOLD ISRAEL STUCK TO THAT DEAL even though: the other side (their sworn enemy) lied from the get/go and even though their enemy has NO intention of living up to nor keeping the agreement…and even if their enemy briefly did keep the agreement, a year or two later, a new leader replaces ABBAS or some other leader and POOF EUROPE and the USA no longer expect Israel's enemy (such as "paslestinians")to keep their side of the agreement since they have a new leader or new situation…or they have five different groups in their country and those other groups are not expected to obey the treaty…BUT ISRAEL is expected to OBEY the treaty 150% even MORE than the treaty originally was meant to ask Israel to do. IT IS SO UNFAIR: that's why the TORAH orders Israel NOT to make treaties with its enemies! Previous treaties were Israel and enemy both signed a big rock and swore NOT to cross that rock…each stayed on their own side of the rock…that was a GOOD TREATY…but treaties where Israel is to give up land and do things and allow Palestinians to sworm into Israel by MILLIONS and for Palestinians to RULE parts of Israel and to be citizens of Israel but not the other way around…are very very DANGEROUS TO ISRAEL AND JEWS EVERYWHERE! All world leaders hide their HATRED of JEWS and ISRAEL when they demand that Israel sign such dangerous one sided treaties. They are more like treaties of SURRENDER!

  24. Nice Guy says:

    just send the Palestinians into JORDAN where they originally came from…JORDAN is made up of 80% Palestinians…and BRITISH stole 80% of Israel that was promised to ISRAEL (Balfour declaration) and made up false country of JORDAN somewhere in 1930-1950 timespan….so why not send all the Palestinians who live in ISRAEL NOW into JORDAN to live and be done with the rock throwers and riotors and terrorists and bombers once and for all ! and there would be peace…why not do it….answer…because EUROPE and THE USA govt want ISRAEL and its Jews DESTROYED forever.

  25. Obama does not know the God of Israel, that’s why he is arrogant towards ZION.

  26. With everything that Obama has done to destroy USA and Israel, is there no person who has the guts to start impeachmant against this man?

  27. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Don’t expect anything from Obadman except platitudes concerning the situation in the Mid-East. He has a reputation as a great verbal performer – but nothing substantial has yet come from this gangling youth. The current POTUS is an intellectual no-brainer.

  28. Ronnie Pleet says:

    He is a congenital idiot

  29. Laurie Lasota says:

    I'm praying that Netenyahu is the one taking this idiotic president down by about 5 pegs!!!!!!! This administration needs to get the hell out of the way because this administration has done NOTHING but take the side of the palastinians because face it this administration HATES Israel!

  30. Allen Miller says:

    The Palestinians don’t want peace. THEY WANT ISRAEL!

  31. Rose Galston says:

    We voted for "O" twice…he was the best of a baaaaad lot…the first time We were hopeful Ron Emmanuel could control "O"'s pro islamic "Tendencies"…he couldn't and Ron left. Obama is NOT a muslim…buuut I honestly believe he does lean in their direction…And we are card carrying Democrats!!!!

  32. Netanyahu is an idiot to sit down and talk to Obama . Hasn't he learned by now what he'll get from Obama. Whether or not Obama is a Muslim is not important. What is important is that he seems to prefer Muslims over Jews,Christians and Americans.

  33. He wants America to be taken down and therefore Israel to come with it … THIS IS HIS GOAL AND HAS BEEN SINCE HE CAME HERE, not born here … DISGUSTING American people can be so stupid

  34. your comments are spot on. I think the same. Give the Palestinians top half of Jordon where the refugees are. You cannot split Jerusalem. No one would split London or New York. The only people from time past in the Land are the Jews and a few Bedouins.

  35. Yechiel Baum says:

    Obama has been a lame chicken president from day one and an embarrassment to the Afro Americans globally. Nethanyahu would have been better staying home for purim.howWEVER, WHEREVER HE DOES GO, put on a kippa AND BE proud your are a Jew representing the Jewish state of Israel.

  36. Kjeld Hesselmann: obama is only an intellectual when he's reading off the teleprompter!

  37. Uzi Kattan says:

    Apparenlty you vote for anything as long as they are DemocRATs.

  38. Susan Lhota says:

    obama is a pathological liar, as is Kerry. Neither of them would know the truth if it were written out for them on their teleprompters. He has betrayed Israel because His only objective is to destroy America from within and without; and to try to force Israel to destroy herself.

  39. Benjamin Fox says:

    I wish Obozo would mind his own business if he doesn't expect of lot more ill weather.

  40. an enemy of Jews. a grifter. a dangerous lunatic. five letters.

  41. If Obama destroys Israel, in the same time Obama is destroying the US.

  42. Gosh, O'h golly and gee whiz, POTUS Obama might try to hit him with his purse. This imposter of a POTUS and the cowardly Kerry have made the US the laughing stock of the world…Israel best arm every non muslim and prepare for the worst because no good comes from these two. And yes, it is obvious from his acts, actions, and omissions that Obama is truly an islamic…and a lot of other things that decency requires that I not mention here.

  43. I find myself wondering why Netanyahu bothers with Obama at all. O is unpopular and serious people no longer pay attention to, or respect him at all. Netanyahu enjoys great respect from the American people and watching him treat our fraud president with courtesy is painful.

  44. I agree with Sandra, Obama has no respect for the prime minister of Israel who is loved by many. Obama cant be trusted.

  45. After today's statement about Israel, I can honestly say that Obama is a total fool. Harvard opened up his mind so much that his brains fell out!!!

  46. Jutta Levey says:

    Obama can't be trusted he speaks with a forked tongue, and only G-d can bring true peace to His people, and no one can do anything about that!!

  47. JONATHAN POLLARD MUST BE TRANSFERRED TO AN ISRAELI HOSPITAL AFTER BEING TRANSPORTED ON Netanyahu's PLANE..HE IS ILL AND MUST BE CARED FOR BY OUR OWN PEOPLE AND EXCELLENT HOSPITALS(ASK THE SYRIANS) WE CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER 29 YEARS FOR A CRIME THAT USUALLY GETS 2-4 YEARS…NO JONATHAN..NO DEAL..TIME TO ACT LIKE KERRY AND THE ARABS….NEVER AGAIN..MEANS DOING AWAY WITH ANTISSEMITISM
