Israel's Netanyahu declines offer to meet with Obama: White House

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declined an offer to meet U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House later this month and canceled his trip to Washington, the White House said on Monday.

Netanyahu's decision to nix his U.S. visit marked the latest episode in a fraught relationship with Obama that has yet to recover from their deep differences over last year's U.S.-led international nuclear deal with Iran, Israel's arch foe.

The White House said the Israeli government had requested a Netanyahu meeting with Obama on either March 18 or 19 and that two weeks ago he was offered a March 18 encounter. [ Source ]

  1. Israel should not bend to a phony request from a man that wants to pull the strings of Israel. PM Netanyahu is well within his rights to decline and I support his decision not to fall for a man who lies and does not believe in Israel's right to exist!

    Well done, Mr. Prime Minister!!! Well done!!

  2. It is sad that the American people have allowed our leadership to create such a wall of separation between us and Israel. I remember seeing shirts everywhere in Israel stating that Israel has our backs, and now we have walked away from our closest allie. Hopefully we can restore the damage the last eight years have done. God bless Israel and pray the right Leader is elected that will stand strong behind Isreal as well as our other allies!

  3. I told you Netanyahu was smart. Why meet with a lame duck who has only been your enemy, who can't do anything for you, and might not make it back home if he did come to the U.S.
    You know - the CIA has ways of getting foreign substances in people and doing things 'electromagnetically' that most of the citizens of the world have no idea.
    And Benjamin wouldn't want to wake up like Judge Scalia did the morning after he had a meeting with Obama.
    Told you Netanyahu was smart.

  4. Obama is in my personal view a devote supporter of all Muslim nations and their false religious beliefs. I pray no one will try to physical way (especially not assassination.) He will face God's judgement as will we all.
    I strongly oppose many of his policies, lack of action to fight with our allies especially Israel against ISIS.

    I am absolutely not a raciest. I have no objection to electing a black president If he or she governs according to our Constitution and puts our nations borders and enemies above who attempt to destroy our nation as well as all others and kill all who do not believe in their religion. I stronly believe our legal citizens should be our presidents first priority when helping them during their times of genuine needs rather than giving those who have never paid a penny into Social Security.

  5. This is the sign for us(chrstian and jew). The end of the world is very very soon. The Son of God Jesus Christ is coming. All world will against israel and the true church of christ. Don't scare about the relationship between us and israel, soon all world will against you. Until the false prophet come. This prophet will do agreat peace between Israel and Arab nation. This peace is the seven years peace treaty. But after three and half years he breaks the treaty and he proclaim himself us God(Gohova). .....ARMAGEDDON.....
