In 2010 Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu. And here we are again in 2012 watching the same circus play out again.
Letterman. The View. Jay-Z. They all merit Obama's time. But not Netanyahu, who has a mad-man, Ahmadinejad, playing with nukes breathing down his neck.
To make things worse, more surreal, more obscene . . . I'm not sure which word or phrase to use. You fill in the blank. However you want to describe Ahmadinejad and Obama being on the same page, using the same word to describe Israel's concern with Iran obtaining a nuke.
On Sunday, a 60 Minutes interview with Obama, regarding Israel's concern with Iran, went a little something like this:
STEVE KROFT: “You don’t feel any pressure from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the middle of a campaign to try and get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? You don’t feel any pressure?”
OBAMA: “When it comes to our national security decisions — any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the
American [Arab] people. And I am going to block out — any noise
that’s out there.”
Not to be outdone, in an an interview with The Washington Post, published on Sunday, Ahmadinejad said, "We, generally speaking, do not take very seriously the issue of the Zionists and the possible dangers emanating from them. Of course, they would love to find a way for their own salvation by making a lot of noise and to raise stakes in order to save themselves. But I do not believe they will succeed."
You just can't make this kind of stuff up. Please tell me Jews who are Democrats, that this matters to you. Please tell me that is isn't just "noise" to you too.
