A ‘senior official’ which is either the Secretary of State, the Chief of Staff to Obama or Valerie Jarrett, or any one of a half-dozen people like that, this unnamed senior US official said that the Israeli leader had spat in Barack Obama’s face (using the archaic past tense), spit would be the correct tense. The newspaper quoted the unnamed senior US official, this is the Times of Israel. “We thought we’d seen everything but BB managed to surprise even us.” Then he went on with the threat and here it was. “There are things you simply don’t do. He spat in our face publicly and that’s no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that president Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency and that there will be a price.” Yes, there will be a price. Mister Obama and your administration, just to let you know, you are not the Godfather, you are not the Mafia, you and your minions are just second-rate Chicago thugs.
This is a bigger threat to a nation you have previously characterized as our greatest friend in the Middle East. This is the biggest threat that you have given to any of our enemies Middle East. You don’t talk like this to Iran but you talk like this to Israel. It turns out that there was a phone call last week in which Obama personally demanded in that phone call to Netanyahu that he tone down his pro Iranian sanctions rhetoric. To stop insisting the United States put more sanctions on Iran. Again, this has been so misreported in the Obama lapdog media. The Menendez bill that he is cobbling together with Lindsey Graham and a number of other Republicans, a bipartisan bill, doesn’t impose new sanctions on Iran at all. It enumerates sanctions and authorizes the president to impose them when the president thinks they ought to be imposed. Even that authority, not putting sanctions on, but leaving it up to Obama, has led him to threaten a veto of Congress. He will not apply sanctions in order to let the “negotiations” continue- negotiations that have produced nothing for the past two years but continued rhetoric from Iran to destroy Israel.
