This is just wrong on so many levels. First, Obama shouldn’t be inserting himself in the Israeli elections. But, he isn’t just voicing an opinion, he’s actually funding the opposition to Netanyahu’s election, and has flown 5 campaign experts into Tel Aviv to help defeat him. They’re careful not to support any specific candidate, thereby avoiding Israel’s campaign finance laws. Just for a little extra nastiness and anti-Israel bias, he refuses to meet with Netanyahu when he speaks in front of the U.S. Congress in March. This is how he treats our allies, while sending Yemeni terrorists home to Al Qaeda to wage more Jihad. Is there any question that Obama is anti-America and pro Jihad?
Obama won’t meet Benjamin Netanyahu – in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu’s visit’s proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won’t get involved. No, he’s not getting involved at all. He’s just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu. That’s all. No interference whatsoever.
The Israeli Left adores touting Netanyahu’s “interference” in American elections, specifically his expression of support for Mitt Romney in the 2012 campaign. When it comes to Israeli left-wing politics, there are simply things you just don’t do when you represent the center-right. It should come as no surprise then that Haaretz, known on this side of the globe for its freakish ability to generate anonymous White House sources that love talking about how much Obama hates Bibi (a shared talent among the Left) would conveniently forget to translate this little news item for their English-reading audience.
