Obama crowned as chicken.

The editors of the Washington Post published an editorial Friday that roundly condemned President Barack Obama for the “barnyard epithet directed at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu” and called on the administration to “reset relations” with the Israeli leader.

The “crudeness” of the “chickens***” insult by a “senior administration official” quoted by the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg “raised the question of why the Israeli leader provokes such passionate animus from an administration that coolly shrugs off insults from the likes of Vladi­mir Putin,” the editorial stated.

It noted the Obama administration’s obvious frustration at not being able to convince the Netanyahu government to stop Israel from building for Jews in areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority.

“Some analysts conjecture that dissing Mr. Netanyahu may be part of the administration’s groundwork for the deal it hopes to strike with Iran on its nuclear program this month,” the editorial board road. “The Israeli leader is almost certain to oppose any accord, just as he denounced the interim arrangement struck last year; he can be expected to lobby Israel’s allies in Congress to oppose any lifting of sanctions.

“The ‘chickens—‘ label applied to Mr. Netanyahu, who served as an elite paratrooper, was linked to an assessment that, out of caution, he missed Israel’s opportunity to carry out a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Presumably Mr. Obama welcomed that prudence. But the administration, said the speculators, wanted to signal to both Tehran and Jerusalem that it would not be hesitant to do battle with Mr. Netanyahu over an Iran deal.

“That seems to give the White House too much credit for calculation. In reality, the attack reflects an unreasonable and disproportionate reaction to Mr. Netanyahu’s resistance to U.S. nostrums on matters of crucial importance to his country — as well as rank unprofessionalism by one or more of the president’s senior aides…

“Given the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East and the very real threat that it will spread and escalate, Mr. Obama would be wise to initiate a reset with Mr. Netanyahu.”

If the feedback to the editorial is any guide, most readers are not at all sympathetic to Israel. Most of the comments made Israel out to be an ingrate that does not says “thanks” for American assistance by taking orders from Washington.

The Washington Post as recently as four years ago was usually on the side of the Obama administration and routinely criticized Israel for not abandoning Jews in Judea and Samaria.

The Palestinian Authority’s constant incitement against Israel, its refusal to conduct real negotiations and instead insist on “all or nothing,” plus Hamas rocket and missile attacks, the complicity of Iran, the frightening appeal of radical Islam and President Barack Obama’s fiasco in Syria – all of these factors have helped turned the newspaper against Obama.

Notably, The New York Times editors did not deem it important to comment on the “barnyard epithet” unless it does so on Sunday.

So far, the newspaper continues to report and opine “all the news that fits” its agenda.

  1. My disappointment in this president has exceeded my contempt for nixon, johnson, and has overwhelmed carter. It is clear he has one agenda which he plans on accomplishing unequivocally as president : which is to change the dynamic in our strategic foreign policy with the overall muslim world post Bush era. He clearly fundamentally agrees with the notion that Jews have no right to a country and is subversively abusing his position in power to accomplish his own personal agenda regardless of the political will of the US people. He made personal deals which he now is strugglling to implement because his basic opinion of his position as president is tatamount to being a king or dictator. Israel is not a third world entity which is burdensomely beholden to the US. The political ties are important and are gratefully accepted on both sides. Their relationship is not by any means one sided. And it is this one sticking point that BO is not grasping about the exisiting relationship. Couple his confusion with his personal agenda and we have a mess. If BO truely believes all the middle east troubles can be resolved by the formation of another arab state (remember that the PLO have a state already and it is Jordan) called palestine, then he is worse than a cracker jack figure head, he is also a stupendous fool. We all are going to be paying a huge price if his plan to allow Iran to flourish and have nuclear capability. This president has hurt us beyond any we have had to endure.

  2. hell they can claim parts of Canada, and I’m pretty sure they are insane enough to do that but it sure as hell doesn’t make them entitled to it morally OR legally. Obama and flicka (my female shepherd) and he (Obama) have ONE thing in common… oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh 🙂

  3. No one can deny BO is a muslim. He is thr second coming of anti christ! He is a devil that will resurect all evilness of the middle east like iran or iraq, who was biblically the origin of Babylon!

    The bible indicated the “mark of the beast” which BO is now showing. And if BO allows iran to produce legal nuclear weapons, he is only delivering humanity to the end of the world!

  6. And there is no guarantee that when iran has its nuclear bomb, world peace or even the gaza/palestine vs israel conflict would stop. Arabs like conquering lands and seizing them. Historically true. And if iran will have nuclear bombs while their enemies and non allies wont submit to their demands, they wont hesitate flipping the advantage to avenge and lead the world. Arabs are poker faced! Sorry but america will not be safe even of obama would join the pact of the devil middle easterns.

  8. Kerry and Obama are two of the biggest putzes EVER! How DARE they denigrate the leader of our best ally in the world?? Do I have to remind him that his attitude is sucked up and reflected by the sorry idiots called Progressive Dems. That is the new name for Communists! And he IS a damn communist/muslim himself. He has switched sides on the war on terror, so he FAVORS IRAN, our mortal enemy, and he calls the brave hero, Bibi as if he is some no account in Ferguson, MO. I hope that every single democrat looses the election big time.

  9. This is really good, calling Netanyahu a chicken. If Obama were in the hot seat where he is then he would crawl under his bed and pee his pants. It seems that since Obama wants to give our land to illegal aliens he expects Israel to give their land to their enemies. Ha, fat chance!

  10. Don’t blame Obama. the DNC selected him, because they were sure their slogan “Its Time for an African American President” would work, and they would win the WH. It did and they have. Blame them for picking a man without ant real credentials for the job. At least Clinton and Jimmy Carter had Credentials for the job. Voting present on every bill up for vote in the US Senate is not very good credentials.

  11. I’m a strong Democrat but no longer label myself a Liberal because of how terrible they’ve been to Israel and Judaism. It’s been really rough seeing the people, I also label myself as, bashing my people.

    And no Iced Tea, according to the Bible, the AntiChrist will serve 7 years. Half good and the other half terrible. It’s his 6th year and nothing has been considered good and nothing has been considered real bad except in the beginning and that was because of Bush. Other then that, the only problems have been from Republicans not liking Obama and blocking everything. I can’t wait to laugh at you Christians when Obama leaves office, because nothing will happen. You guys have been saying he’s the AntiChrist since he got office and nothing has happened. It’s about time to stop calling him that because he doesn’t fit the profile.

  12. About time that the country begins to get the truth. And Israel IS thankful for the US support militarily, and financially…..but remember that the Obama administration continues to send tons of money to Arab states states too……and they already have all of that OIL MONEY….Israel does not, and further more Israel is an ally. Obama has been on the wrong side of Muslim extremism all along which begs the question…..WHY?????

  13. Because he is working to bring us down from the inside, do some homework. Look at what he has done, we have Palestinian authority being un our government jobs. That is his true job as a muslim islamist, this is the first time I can remember having terrorist in our WH on a day of prayer. No Christians just muslim terrorist, ckeck it out. So you will know.

  15. Calling Netanyahu loathsome names only sums up the classless, the hapless, the unfit crowd we have in the White House. Time for them to leave, it is not their House it is ours and they have made a mess of it. Time to bring the /remodeling and cleaning crew and fix it. Democrats/progressives/communists, leave Washington and go home. You hate OUR American anyhow!

  16. Please–I didn't vote for him as did many others not vote for him. But we are suffering, non-the-less, for the stupidity of our fellow Americans. I pray daily for G-d to remove this evil man from office.

  17. Please don't assume that the feedback on the editorial website is an indication of anything other than frustrated Obamatons who are about to massively lose power in the election Tuesday.. The Washington Post has been for years now a tool of the Obama administration, and is treated as such. There is enormous support for Bibi and for Israel in the US, but those folks are not in power and are often denied a voice in our corrupt media. Am Yisrael Chai. Hashem is with Israel, and millions of Americans as well.
