Testing everyone’s patience
It is clear that the US president Obama is sick of Netanyahu, as reported in many international media, including Israeli opposition dailies. It is worth recalling the private conversation that took place during the G20 Summit held at Cannes, sometime ago.
It was heard by many reporters that former French president Nicolas Sarkozy calling Netanyahu a ‘liar’.
The US president Obama responded to it by saying ‘you are fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often’.
Now in a column published by Bloomberg View, by Jeffrey Goldberg, an American journalist wrote after UN General Assembly voted upgrading Palestine to a nonmember observer state of the UN, Obama has supposed to have said privately and repeatedly; ‘Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are’.
‘With each new settlement announcement, in Obama’a view, Netanyahu is moving his country down a path toward near- total isolation’.
‘Haaretz’, the Israeli daily in its comments it said that Obama is not alone. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime-minister David Cameron and other world leaders hold similar views of the Israeli prime-minister. Must we say about the helpless Palestinians?
Netanyahu meddled in the U.S presidential election with a high hope of Republican candidate Mitt Romney getting elected. The brighter side of the outcome of the election is that the Zionists are losing control among the American voters.
This is one clear message we got from the recent US presidential election and Obama’s resounding victory over Romney. We remember the defeated Republican candidate’s visit to Israel, prior to the election and his utterances, to please the Netanyahu government and the diehard Zionists in the US and in Israel, are still ringing in our ears.
