Benjamin Netanyahu is a crazy monster, not a rational statesman. Related: Netanyahu Is A Demon From Hell.
"(Reuters) - The White House has rejected a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet President Barack Obama in the United States this month, an Israeli official said on Tuesday, after a row erupted between the allies over Iran's nuclear programme." - Jeffrey Heller, Reuters, September 11, 2012.
"At the present time Netanyahu has the comfort of knowing that if he does order an attack on Iran two or three weeks before the American election, Obama will have no choice but to back him even though war with Iran could have catastrophic consequences for America’s own best interests in the region and far beyond." - Alan Hart, "Netanyahu v Obama and Iran," August 16, 2012.President Obama has finally rejected Benjamin Netanyahu. Good on him.
"Of course, it isn’t clear that Obama or any future president actually will see events with sufficient clarity to conclude that the United States and Israel are on divergent paths on the matter of Iran. But they are. And, when it comes to America’s vital national interests—particularly when the expenditure of American blood is on the line—the president’s job is to see events with crystal clarity." - Robert W. Merry, "U.S., Israeli Interests Diverge on Iran," September 5, 2012.
In a public confrontation between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, 99% of the world would take Obama's side. Netanyahu is rightly perceived as a liar, a bully, and a monster who is intent on blowing up the Middle East. His case for attacking Iran is based on paranoia, delusion, lies, and racism.
Netanyahu should not be listened to as a serious and rational statesman. He has a problem with facing reality. I don't know why Obama hasn't already put this arrogant fool in his place and teach him a lesson in manners.
It is not okay for an Israeli nutjob to think he can outmaneuver an American president. Netanyahu's arrogance should not be tolerated by anyone, especially not the "leader of the free world."
Netanyahu is no king. Historians will not refer to him as "Netanyahu the Great." The great nation of Israel deserves better. If Netanyahu attacks Iran, the subsequent destruction of Israel will be his fault.
President Obama and the American people would be wise to shun Netanyahu like the plague right now, not after an ill-considered attack on Iran. Any nation that joins Netanyahu in his crusade against Iran will join him in the field of shame and regret.
