Obama v. Netanyahu Round Two


- Advertisement -

They clearly don't like each other.

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article said Netanyahu repeatedly puts both feet in his mouth and risks swallowing them. 

He's arrogant, abrasive, offensive, duplicitous, thuggish, and dangerous. He's an embarrassment to legitimate governance. It's hard imagining why Israelis put up with him.

Former and current cabinet and military officials deplore him. He's wildly irresponsible. Rational thinking isn't his long suit. 

Former Mossad head Meir Dagan said Israel faces no existential threat. He criticized inflammatory warmongering. He urged changing Israeli's electoral system.

"(W)e need a prime minister," he said," who will not be subject to political pressures when deciding on such issues as an attack on Iran or a peace agreement."

"The State of Israel is at a critical point in time of great challenges both foreign and domestic. Minority groups are controlling the state and the majority is not being heard."

Former Military Intelligence head Major General (ret.) Uri Saguy believes Netanyahu's heading Israel over a cliff. He's outraged over his dangerous warmongering. 

He called it "orchestrated and purposely timed hysteria that puts the country into a state of anxiety, artificial or not."

He can't be trusted. Others in Israel feel the same way.

He's obsessed about a nonexistent Iranian existential threat. He's willing to embroil the entire region in conflict challenging it. He'd risk destroying Israel if he tried.

He's gone out of his way to alienate support from Washington. No wonder Obama deplores having to deal with him. As long as he remains prime minister, relations with America won't be easy.
