Netanyahu Lets Sparks Fly On Obama Administration


U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro was shouted down by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as they met in Israel to discuss the Obama administration’s position on Iran. “Time has run out,” the Prime Minister exclaimed.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Netanyahu was clearly frustrated with Mr. Shapiro:

A source that participated in the meeting said that a particularly angry and stressed Netanyahu began a tirade against the US president, attacking him for not doing enough on Iran. “Instead of pressuring Iran in an effective way, Obama and his people are pressuring us not to attack the nuclear facilities,” the source quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Angered about continued US rhetoric that diplomacy needs more time to work, Netanyahu said flatly: “Time has run out,” Yediot reported.

While Shapiro tried to respond politely, but firmly, apparently he overstepped his bounds. He said that Netanyahu was distorting Obama’s position. He claimed that Obama had promised that Iran would not obtain nuclear weapons and that military options were still on the table.

That did not go voer well and sources claim that is when “spark flew” in a shouting match between Netanyahu and Shapiro took place. Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) was also on hand and sat stunned as Shapiro and Netanyahu went at each other.

This is exactly why we should remove the leash and let Israel do what they want about this. They sense a threat from Iran. They have the capability and the fortitude to eliminate that threat. Let them have at it. Why in the world would we hold them back?

It is possible that Netanyahu will meet Obama at the United Nations General Assembly meeting in September. One wonders if sparks will fly there as well.
