US President Barack Obama has refused to answer phone calls from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “more than once,” according to Kuwaiti news source Al-Jarida.
In a deliberate snub, Netanyahu’s calls have instead been forwarded to US Secretary of State John Kerry.
An American source told Al-Jarida that Jewish American politicians have been keen to fix the situation, which has steadily been deteriorating over the past month, and are attempting to set up a meeting between the two world leaders at the White House.
The news is the latest in a series of public spats between the two nations, whose differences about the handling of a nuclear Iran threaten the traditional US-Israel alliance.
Obama has also reportedly been in the process of lifting the sanctions for over 5 months – without a deal with Iran or express Congressional approval.
The statements follow controversial remarks by Kerry last Wednesday, who told Republican senators who were briefed about recent talks with Iran to “ignore anything the Israelis say” about the issue.
Naturally, such damning news comes with its own denial:
The Prime Minister’s Office issued a flat denial, saying, “The report in Al Jarida is wrong.”
Which then leads to this counter to the denial:
The Kuwaiti paper’s exclusive reports on what’s going on behind the scenes of the Prime Minister’s Office have raised the question of whether Netanyahu’s bureau is intentionally using the paper to release information to which it doesn’t want to be directly linked.
If those are the rules of the game, play on.
We have surmised before that Obama and Kerry are using the ObamaCare fiasco as a smokescreen to carry out this spineless, disgraceful betrayal of Israel. Never let a crisis go to waste is the mantra. If I were to surmise further, I would say that Obama is behind this most of all; he’s just using Kerry’s unbridled ego and measureless stupidity as his battering ram. As long as it doesn’t mess with the hair.
