U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently announced that he will not be visiting Israel during his upcoming trip to the middle east. Seeing this as the clear snub that it is, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu couldn’t resist calling out the liberal politician.
During a radio interview on Thursday night, Netanyahu told listeners that Kerry “really has no reason to come here,” showing that the relationship between Israel and the U.S. has completely deteriorated. Obama’s deal with Iran has placed American and Israelis in danger, a fact that Kerry himself has admitted.
According to Conservative Tribune, Netanyahu reminded listeners that Israel had nothing to do with the deal, and then he offered a chilling statement.
“We’re not at the table, we are one of the courses on the menu itself,” Netanyahu warned.
Kerry’s trip to the Middle East will include stops in Egypt and Qatar. This week, he was asked about flying over our former ally of Israel and not making a stop there.
“I think I’ve had more meetings with an Israeli prime minister and more visits than any secretary of state in history,” Kerry responded. “And I consider Bibi a friend, and we talk still and we disagree on this, obviously, and I’ve told him my feelings.”
I don’t think Bibi would agree…
