Our Muslim Terror Supporter in Chief has been in quite a snit about tiny Israel lately. It all started when word got out that Israel would be building 1,600 housing units in East Jerusalem. Obama was so pissed that he sicced Hillary Clinton on Netanyahu and then blew off the prime minister for dinner.
Now I think this behavior is quite telling, coming from a man who supported his hoodlum cousin Raila Odinga in Kenya (who wanted to institute shariah law) made his first call as POTUS to fakestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, who hugged Hugo Chavez, and who insists on talking to Iran’s Ahmadinejad sans pre-conditions.
Anyway, Netanyahu is so far standing his ground against Obama.
(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s office said Friday that Israel will not change its policy vis-a-vis Jerusalem despite United States pressure. Netanyahu returned Thursday from a round of meetings in the US during which he was asked to restrict the construction of housing for Jews in parts of the capital city. Right wing MK’s and groups are making efforts to show Netanyahu that mainstream Israel is with him on this issue.
Obama pushed Netanyahu to agree to extend the construction freeze in Judea and Samaria, to release hundreds of terrorists affiliated with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah organization, and to deny Jews the right to build in parts of Jerusalem that were under Jordanian control between the years 1948 and 1967.
In other news, seventy five congressman have signed a letter to Hillary Clinton asking her to cool it with Israel.
Also, if Netanhayu continues to stand his ground, which I doubt he will, word is that the U.S. may abstain the next time the U.N. Security Council issues of its many anti-Israel resolutions.
This picture says it all:
