Netanyahu to Obama: “Don’t Second Guess Me on Hamas”


There have been a lot of reports of behind-the-scenes conversations between Obama and Netanyahu. I’m not sure why this one should be considered any more credible just because it comes via the AP, but the overall content, if not the tone, seems reasonably plausible.

In a phone call with US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro about the breakdown of the short-lived UN- and US-brokered ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vented his anger, according to people familiar with the call

Netanyahu told Shapiro the Obama administration was “not to ever second-guess me again” and that Washington should trust his judgment on how to deal with Hamas, according to people familiar with the conversation. Netanyahu added that he now “expected” the US and other countries to fully support Israel’s offensive in Gaza, according to those familiar with the call. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name.

Netanyahu has already denied the report, not that this means much.

“That’s the tone of our relationship, which gets to the question of these reports that are not only of my conversation with Ambassador Shapiro but also with the President that are full of incorrections, (sic) full of distortions and are wrong both in tone and in substance.

Which means, well, conceivably anything. But what is interesting is the frequency of these reports and their consistency. Some are clearly bogus. Others are channeled through mainstream media outlets. Some may be true, others, like the call transcript that a lot people fell for, are clearly false.

So the question to be asked is who is putting out these reports and what is the agenda? There’s obviously a conflict behind the scenes. And sometimes not so behind the scenes. But with a midterm election coming up and a war in Israel, neither Obama nor Netanyahu are looking to make the conflict public.

Someone however is. Or there may be no ‘someone’. There may just be the media which has emerged as Hamas’ PR agency.

    I don’t know if Netanyahu said that to Obama or not, but he should have.

  • Jason P

    I’d assume that Netanyahu could safely “yes” Obama to death. No one in the world respects Obama and after Kerry’s ceasefire led to immediate deaths of Israeli troops, the facts make Kerry irrelevant. Anti-Israel reporters have to make it seem that Bibi disrespects the office of the President of the United States and hence the American people. In fact the world “disses” Obama and one only has to give him rope to hang himself.

    The arrogance of this filthy rat yid Satanyahoo never ceases to amaze. If I were Obama, I’d start carpet-bombing Tel Aviv. jews are demons in human form.

      except for when inbred trailer park trash like you gets her dumbazz in trouble – then you scream for a “Jew lawyer”

      • justsayin

        Or a “Jew doctor.” These helpless little tools are part of the conspiracist crowd. Good thing the Jews control all aspects of their miserable lives.

    • space cadet

      Wrong, helpless tool. The Jews won’t allow it.

      Spoken like the satan worshiping scum that you are.

    Thanks for sharing, Reverend Wright.

    You mean the ancestors of today’s Muslims who used to:

    “At issue was the Barbary pirates’ demand for tribute from American merchant vessels in the Mediterranean Sea. If ships of a given country failed to pay, pirates would attack the ships and take their goods, and often enslave crewmembers and hold them for ransom. ”

    You might try (key word is try) reading “The Pirate Coast” by Richard Zacks.

    Did you catch the 2nd line of the Marine Corps Hymn?

    Hint to all you LefTARDS out there. Tripoli refers to Tripoli, Libya and it was Muslims using the Koran as justification.

    From the Halls of Montezuma
    To the shores of Tripoli;
    We fight our country’s battles
    In the air, on land, and sea;
    First to fight for right and freedom
    And to keep our honor clean;
    We are proud to claim the title
    Of United States Marine.
    Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
    From dawn to setting sun;
    We have fought in every clime and place
    Where we could take a gun;
    In the snow of far-off Northern lands
    And in sunny tropic scenes,
    You will find us always on the job
    The United States Marines.
    Here’s health to you and to our Corps
    Which we are proud to serve;
    In many a strife we’ve fought for life
    And never lost our nerve.
    If the Army and the Navy
    Ever look on Heaven’s scenes,
    They will find the streets are guarded
    By United States Marines.

    Hamas input noted. Now go back to using children as human shields.

    That is nonsense. When America wants to give its peso to foreign countries, it prints bonds, delivers them to the Fed and the Fed prints currency from ink and cotton. I agree that it is immoral for Israel to take the fiat but the US signed a deal with Israel when Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt.

    Learn to love the suck!!!

    keep goose-stepping in your fat mama’s basement – you’re not even good enough to scrub the toilets of Jews

  • uncle adolph

    It’s getting increasingly difficult to find them- the Palestinian children are rapidly being culled in Gaza by the IDF in the name of Israeli Lebensraum.

  • uncle adolph

    Brilliant retort.

  • Pete

    You mean the Marines fighting in Libya in 1806 or so where fighting for Exon?

  • Drakken

    And a puzzy like you ain’t fit to lick my dusty Marine Corps boots, but it sure would be fun as h*ll putting one of my boots up your azz though.

  • tickletik

    Then maybe they should consider not using them as bunker material if they love them so much.

    Here another option, not that it will matter soon, because our enemies will all soon be dead, courtesy of brave honorable men, but if they don’t want us to put bullets into their filthy little skulls, they might try not shooting missiles in our direction

  • Drakken

    Put me in charge, I’ll show you ragheads how to getter done. Just think Carthage.
