    Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

    For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.

    After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

    “It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

    What a bumbling fool. Insulting one of our closest allies with such idiocy is really unbelievable.

    But considering the moronic capitulation to Russia and turning our back on Poland with absolutely no diplomatic gain this kind of adolescent diplomacy really isn't surprising anymore.

    Thank you President Obama for once again showing that experience actually does matter.

    I read that earlier today... what an incredibly odd way to treat a visiting ally, whether or not you're currently in agreement on an issue.

    Does Obama believe this make him appear "strong?"

    It certainly doesn't make him look strong. Just weak, inexperienced and breaking yet another basic moral decorum for presidents. Not that he cares since its obvious his narcissism trumps his respect for the office he occupies.

    This is another prime example of Obama's arrogance, and amateur status on the world stage.

    This type of behavior may be acceptable when you hanging out with your fellow coke freaks but it's no way to treat a head of state Insulting one of our closest allies as texmaster stated.

    Obama in a fool and all he needs to go along with his actions in a bright red nose and a pair of big read shoes about two feet long. He's a clown and an embarrassment.

    It's bad enough that he kisses butt all over the world and plays the grand appeaser to Countries like Iran that hate us or make nice with his pal and Dictator Hugo Chavez. But this is over the Damn top.

    I'll give the story more crediblity once I see it in a reputable website/newspaper.

    Well what do you know.

    President Barack Obama's meeting with Netanyahu yesterday turned out to be another Israeli charade. President Obama actually left the meeting for a time to have dinner with First Lady Michelle Obama. It wasn't a slap in the face of the Israeli Prime Minister as some in the Israeli right wing media have suggested. It was more like Obama the diplomat signifying that there was not much diplomacy going on at the meeting. Not much if anything was accomplished. Everything the U.S. wanted was on the table in black and white. Israel basically said we'll think about it. Netanyahu Announced on his plane ride home that Israel had reached the "golden mean" in their land disputes with Palestinians. I don't think so.

    Obama should've taken one of these into his meeting:

    I agree the initial report is dubious with it's lack of verifiable sources, but I disagree that Examiner.com is a reputable website/newspaper. It's a dressed-up blog and the quote you gave is simply opinion by the author.

    Interesting. When you do a Google search of "Netanyahu humiliated," all that comes up are right wing websites. Go figure.

    I don't think it was the act of a bumbling fool. It looks like calculated political payback to me. Don't forget, this happened right after Israel announced it was putting more settlers in East Jerusalem, Just as Joe Biden arrived there for a visit.

    It was just Obama and Netanyahu having a dick measuring contest. Just silliness.

    Israel is a liberal democracy, hence the prime minister is not a dictator and does not control everything.
    The timing of the first action was the responsibility of the interior minister.
    The timing of this building of 20 apartments(yes 20) is naturally the decision of Jerusalem's municipality.

    The actual building in East Jerusalem is not something new, and is something that has existed 46 years before the current administration has even been formed.
