Israeli Official Now Suggests Boehner Misled Netanyahu On Speech

A senior Israeli official is now implying that House Speaker John Boehner led Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to believe that his invitation for the prime minister to speak before Congress in March was bipartisan, according to Reuters.

"It appears that the speaker of Congress made a move, in which we trusted, but which it ultimately became clear was a one sided move and not a move by both sides," Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Tzachi Hanegbi said Friday on a Tel Aviv radio program, per the news outlet.

Then, via Reuters:

The interviewer asked if that meant Netanyahu had been "misled" into believing Boehner's invitation was bipartisan, a characterization Hanegbi did not contest.​


Boehner's invitation for Netanyahu to speak on Iran, extended without consultation with the White House, has stirred partisan tensions. The White House called it a breach of diplomatic protocol. House Democrats have met with Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer to register their displeasure, and some have said they will boycott the speech.

Israel is clearly lying. Who is surprised?

Otherwise, how does anyone explain Dermer spending 3 hours with Kerry and never mentioning it, the day before it was announced?

"If you want to make a point or express your opinion, fine. But simply posting articles that others have written is the height of intellectual vacuity. It is obvious that many of these posters haven't even read, much less understood, these articles. Instead, they see a catchy (and usually misleading) headline and think that this confers some sort of legitimacy to their preconceived beliefs.

Why not try composing your own thoughts first, and then post a coherent message?"

Is Netanyahu really that ignorant about U.S. politics. He thought something bi-partisan came out of Congress?????

Really????

I think they are just using that as an excuse to ease their asses out of the speech.
