I have not had much to say about Barack Obama's recent snubbing of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but I came across the following comment that rings true.
In a recent Jerusalem Post article about Obama's laughable claim that US will 'do what it must' to stop Iranian nukes, one commenter, mentioning the snub to Netanyahu, saw this response:
So? He has not arranged the meeting with Danish Prime Minister either.Which was followed by this very apt comment, I thought:
Neither did he make the US relations with Denmark a major issue in his reelection campaign. Also, I do not remember him asking Denmark to give Greenland independence and stopping all construction there. And I have never heard Obama discussing whether Copenhagen is really the capital of Denmark (or may be it should be given some special international status, given that once Denmark dominated all of Scandinavia, and so Swedes and Norwegians can also lay some claims to it?) Also, I never heard Obama threatening or scolding Denmark.Indeed.
Barack Obama is probably the least friendly president toward the Jewish state of Israel that we have seen in the brief history of that country.
As my dear 'ol dad would sometimes say, "I wouldn't trust that guy as far as I could throw him."
