Obama snubs Netanyahu? White House turns down meeting Israeli Prime Minister Israeli sources tell our Wolf Blitzer that at least for now the White House has rejected a request from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with President Barack Obama this month. The Israeli leader wanted to discuss Iran's disputed nuclear program while he's attending a meeting at the U.N. Netanyahu, meanwhile, is growing increasingly frustrated with the U.S. for not drawing a so-called "red line" when it comes to Iran's nuclear program, saying the U.S. has no "moral right" to restrain Israel from taking military action of its own. Obama snubs Netanyahu? White House turns down meeting Israeli Prime Minister – Erin Burnett OutFront - - CNN.com Blogs It is about time that Obama took a stand on Israel and I hope he continues in this vein. Seems to me that this just demonstrates the arrogance that Israel has not only to the US but also to the rest of the world. Who are they to think that they can just whistle and the President of the US will come running to bow at his feet, I say screw him and anyone who says that he is a great statesman and should be elected president of the US. He is not qualified to pour piss out of a boot even id the instructions were printed on the heel.
