Washington Post – The latest furor in the toxic relationship between the Obama administration and Israel erupted over a barnyard epithet directed at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by a “senior administration official.”

Ugly jibes between the two governments are not new: Secretary of State John F. Kerry has been on the receiving end of several from senior Israeli officials. But the crudeness of this one — Mr. Netanyahu was called “a chickens—“ by someone speaking to the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, a frequent recipient of high-level White House communications — raised the question of why the Israeli leader provokes such passionate animus from an administration that coolly shrugs off insults from the likes of Vladi­mir Putin.

    The little horn spoken of by Daniel is and I will reiterate IS standing in the holy place. As everyone is questioning his motives his plan is to establish his legacy of taking the axe to the sheeps heads. This is a time for Israel to be vigilant and for its citizens to prepare away for them and their family’s to survive as Netanyahu and his generals prepare to defend Israel from his forces. When you see Russia and China stepping into their prophetic roles as described by Danial that is a sight that all hell is about to be unleashed on this planet..especially Israel. Now Russia and China stand firm and put a firewall between the little horn and his forces that are rising. Russia is doing fly overs of Europe warning them that if they actively assist islam in the caliphate they will be nuked. Russia is not stupid he knows that the the caliphate forces must convert you are die trying and Putin is going to assist them in the latter. Putin knows this is heading towards nuclear confrontation and is fully prepared to make that response. I hope Allah has enough virgins in the Islamic heaven because the demand will be overwhelming. One thing Israel does not have to fear is Russia or China. Their leaders some how understand that participating in the take down of Israel will lead to the demise of their civilizations..I mean they are on Gods side…they are providing a diversion, becoming a thorn in the side of the little horn, that in turn diverts his attention from Israel and slowshis plans for Israels demise. As this confrontation reaches it’s final stages leading to Armeggedon God will take matters into his own hands. Israel’s objective is to survive and stay alive with as little collateral damage until that occurs.

    Another holocaust is possible. If it happened once it can happen again. Thank G-d we have Israel. We need to do everything possible to keep Israel militarily strong. Jews get out of Europe. There can be no compromise regarding Israel nor can we depend on the good will of others. This unfortunately is a lesson that many Jews have never learned. Never forget, never forgive never again.

    Obama is the real chicken-shit, minus the chicken.

    Obama has proven numerous times in the past that he is a vulgar, ill mannered boor.

    He is probably the “senior administration official”.

    “…..why the Israeli leader provokes such passionate animus from an administration that coolly shrugs off insults from the likes of Vladi­mir Putin.:”

    Obama believes that because Israel has received aid from the US that it has sold its soul to him.

    He is now finding out, much to his chagrin, that helping an ally or friend does not translate into obeying Obama if it damages or even leads to the destruction of his beneficiaries.
