White House Declines Netanyahu Request To Meet With Obama

| September 12, 2012

Obama tells Netanyahu ‘No Thanks’

The White House’s response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting Obama.

It is obvious to even the casual observer how much disdain Obama has for Netanyahu and the state of Israel

The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.

An official in Jerusalem said that the prime minister’s office sent the White House a message stating that although Netanyahu will spend only two and a half days on U.S. soil, he is interested in meeting Obama and is willing to travel  to the U.S. capital specifically for that purpose.  The official added that the White House rejected the request and said that at this time Obama’s schedule does not allow for a meeting.

The White House’s response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting the president.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak tried to ease the tension on Tuesday, saying that the differences between the U.S. and Israel should be ironed out “but behind closed doors.”

“We must not forget that the U.S. is Israel’s most important source of support in terms of security,” he said in a statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, Netanyahu launched an unprecedented verbal attack on the U.S. government over its stance on the Iranian nuclear program.

“The world tells Israel ‘wait, there’s still time’. And I say, ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel,” Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday.

“Now if Iran knows that there is no red line. If Iran knows that there is no deadline, what will it do? Exactly what it’s doing. It’s continuing, without any interference, towards obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs,” he said.

U.S. Department of State spokeswoman Victoria Nuland stressed again on Tuesday that the U.S.  administration doesn’t see public discussion of Iranian nuclear program and red lines as useful. “We don’t think it’s particularly useful to have those conversations in public. It doesn’t help the process and it doesn’t help the integrity of the diplomacy. To be standing here at the podium parsing the details of the Iranian nuclear program is not helpful to getting where we want to go,” she said, briefing the media.

Also on Tuesday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that if Iran decides to make a nuclear weapon, the United States would have a little more than a year to act to stop it.” source – Haaretz

  1. Shame on you Obama. God will show you his wrath and you will pay. This man is the leader of God’s chosen people. I would not be in your shoes for nothing.+

MAYBE OBAMA IS NOT AS GOOD AS HE THINKS, NOW, IS HE?

  3. Keith says:

    How typical, Obama has already thrown Israel under the bus. Now this is just a total insult. Since when does the head of the nation or a head of state refuse to meet with another head of state. This is so very sad. God bless the U.S.A.??? Why should HE?!?!?! We are in for judgement like we have never experienced before..

  4. txnursie says:

    Obama hasn’t even bothered to thinly disguise his animosity toward Israel. He barely acknowledges Jerusalem as its capital, oh wait… he does NOT acknowledge it, even though the most high God has said it shall be so. Israel is sacred ground to Christians because God has called it His own. It’s where our Savior walked the earth, and it’s where He will reign upon His return. We have been instructed time and time again to align ourselves with Israel and to love its people. We are to minister to them and love them.
    I have been in Bible studies since I was a child and have always been taught about Revelation and how people would blatantly thumb their noses at our Lord and His teachings.
    I suppose I’ve lived a sheltered life as I have been born and raised in Texas, Bible Belt, and raised in an extended family who is predominantly Christian. I never expected people to literally be so hateful towards Him.
    So many of the things the Bible has warned us against, have happened, to the detail as the Bible has described. It’s almost as though it’s a script and people are doing exactly what the Bible told us would happen.
    Honestly, if you weren’t already a believer in the Word of God, when you see this ancient manuscript being acted out in every corner of the world exactly like it says, wouldn’t it give you pause to maybe reconsider? And Obama is playing a huge role in acting out this whole thing. I’m ashamed of him, that he’s our president.

  5. I expect Nethanyahu to get his ambassadors out of the US and tells the US ambassadors to leave Israel. God’s final judgment upon America Babylon the Great is near.

    To the American Jews, COME OUT OF HER, SAITH YHWH.

  6. BTW, Canada is Israel’s only ally, now that Harper has booted the Iranian ambassadors out of Canada.

  7. Daw says:

    Ok my friends, brothers and sisters in-Christ.
    The division you are now seeing between the Obama Administration and Israel is a ruse. The White House has already given 70 plus million dollars to Israel a few months ago for additional defence , along with the new technology of the “Iron Dome ” missle interceptor.
    Understand this. Obama for election reasons as well as side – stepping the activation blame of terror cells in America, must look as though he is “at odds ” with Israel.
    If America looks to be in on an initial attack on Iran, America will be a target from not just Russia, China but also from the inside – out .
    Obama has already assisted Israel through contractual follow-through, without looking like a promoter of war.
    When (not if) Israel goes to war with Iran (prior to the election I believe, the Obama Administration will appear opposed, though the aforementioned money and technology will actually be counted as preparing Israel while securing the Jewish vote.
    Similar to Russian-Syrian contracts for fighter helicopters mentioned a month ago.
    Do not take me wrong. Obama is an evil Despot at best and politics will win over the G-dless everytime.
    I believe in the prophecies of Ezekiel, Psalms, Isaiah etc. These will come to fruition as promised by our Creator. So relax dear believer, and watch G-ds plan unfold as he deals with the “Quick and the Dead”.
    G-d speed,
    DAW.

  8. Marie says:

    DAW…what the heck is up with you writing G-d? Cant you EVEN spell out his name….IT’S GOD! The one that everyone believer or non will bow before one day!!

  9. Mellow One says:

    Yes, indeed! It is clear to see if one wants to see with open eyes. America is doomed as we know it, and it’s not what it was. We turn our backs on Israel, and it’s us that will be wiped off the map not Israel.

    Can you imagine what America would be like today if there were no Christians???? This is coming soon.

  10. Carole63 says:

    What`s happening is in line with bible prophecy, but it is very sad to watch it coming to pass before our eyes!
    I pray the Lord Jesus will come quickly as the world continues to grow darker!

  11. elizabeth says:

    This isnt good obama may be the president but he isnt my president and Gods wrath will come down on him and if we the people allow this to happen then we are just as guilty as he is.

  12. Daw says:

    Obama is your President, do you question his words Marie?
    Congress has won your trust?
    Hum….interesting!

  13. Chris says:

    Where are all this hate and anger coming from without hearing the details of the issue? Although I am in support of people of good will all over the planet including Isreal but, Doesn’t Isreal possess nuclear bomb? For what purpose? Has she dismantled it? If not why? Don’t they think other people in the region feel insecure and they are also entitled to protect them self just like Isreal? Look at India and Pakistan. I just wonder. Can we all get along instead looking for conflict where there is non? What do you gain in the name calling and batching? I just wonder.

    • txnursi says:

      Chris, as most of us who visit this site are Christians, we tend to be of the stance that the Bible is the ultimate authority on the end times and the roles the nations of the world play in them.
      According to Holy Scripture, the Word of God, Israel is not like any other nation, including our own. God gave it as a gift, a promise, to the Jews. They are His chosen people and it is His holy land. He has proclaimed Jerusalem as its capital, and that has been widely disputed.
      Israel is sacred ground and we have been instructed to treat is as such, whatever the cost. I am not trying to engage in name-calling, as you mentioned, but rather feel strongly about Israel’s right to protect itself. It’s been the land of the Jews for thousands of years, God said so. And I don’t envy any nation who tries to divide it up or take it away from them.
