Before Obama became president, Israel was one of America’s greatest allies. After seven years in office, however, Obama has completely ruined our relationship with the nation, and now they want nothing to do with us.
According to Conservative Tribune, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu humiliated Obama on Tuesday when he declined an offer to come to Washington, D.C. and meet with the president. This is a huge snub, as most foreign dignitaries would never turn down an offer to meet with the President of the US, regardless of how bad their relationship is with our country.
Netanyahu isn’t making any bones about it: he’s done with Obama.
“We were looking forward to hosting the bilateral meeting, and we were surprised to first learn via media reports that the prime minister, rather than accept our invitation, opted to cancel his visit,” a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, Ned Price, stated.
Some are theorizing that Netanyahu is avoiding Washington because of the presidential election, since he does not want to show favoritism to any particular candidate. Though pundits expressed surprise at the snub, Twitter users were not shocked at all.
Thankfully, Netanyahu likely won’t have to wait much longer to deal with an American president who actually respects Israel. SHARE if you think Obama just got what he deserved!
