U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice ridiculed Israel’s Ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, for spending time with Republican casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday.

According to the report, Rice was asked in a recent meeting with a top American Jewish leader why she had not held meetings with Dermer. She responded, “He never asked to meet me.”

“Besides, I understood that he’s too busy traveling to Sheldon Adelson’s events in Las Vegas,” she added, referring to the major Jewish philanthropist who also owns Israeli daily Israel Hayom.

Haaretz reported that Rice was referring to Dermer’s attendance as guest of honor at a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition in March. The event, the newspaper claimed, proved that Dermer continues to “dabble in American domestic politics as a sympathizer with the red, Republican side.”

Rice asserted in a Twitter post last week that U.S-Israel relations remain stronger than ever. “As I said yesterday, U.S.-Israel security relationship is stronger than it has ever been,” she tweeted.

      Israel is not our friend. Get that through your thick skull.

  • American

    That is how it begins. Americans are tired of the back-stabbing Israelis. America will dump your silly little country and your chickenshit leaders.

    Ms. Rice is quite familiar with individuals who run off to black-tie events; look at her Commander In Chief.

  • Jonah

    Thanks to the elections her days of being warshipped will come to an abrupt halt.

  • Dr.M.Otero

    What the US is doing is not reassuring. “Having your back’ is Chicago speak too vague and unreliable. Bibi has seemed to be a thorn in Mr. O’S side because Mr.O doesn’t want to divulge his State Department’s plans. O’s stalling must have signaled Bibi that something was afoot. Since then State has declared itself off limits to Bibi. What balm can the US offer Israel for one alleged to be a close ally? The US strategy is not risk free unless Russia can store Iran’s stockpile dependably, Chances of that?

      He is a chickenshit and a coward, perhaps.

      Well-stated, and most likely true.

    Normally, I try to be analytical in reacting to developments like these, but Rice’s sarcasm about Ambassador Dermer evokes only the urge to wretch. Couple Rice’s snide, ad hominem remark with the vulgarity delivered through The Atlantic, just a few days ago, and we have a U.S. Administration proving that it has the mentality and maturity of a self-absorbed middle-schooler (actually, that is giving this Administration too much credit). As for Rice’s objections to Ambassador Dermer spending time with Jewish Republicans. . .Hmmm . . .Shall we actually believe that a political operative and former UN diplomat in the Obama Administration is so unschooled in diplomacy and politics that she fails utterly to grasp that it would be severely remiss of Dermer NOT to establish working connections with Israel’s only reliable supporters in the U.S.? Moreover, would any Ambassador to the U.S. in his right mind shun supporters in favor of spending time with the foul-mouthed insulters of Israel who now fill the halls of the White House?

  • Marv Hershenson

    This person is an embarrassment and contributes to the non-existing foreign policy of the USA. She has a responsibility to reach out to the Ambassador. What a self-serving fool.

  • Bernard Ross

    why would anyone want to meet with a set of incompetent adolescents who appear to be playing at topsy turvy day in high school.

  • Fanfare

    And she’s too busy kissing the rear ends of the Iranians.

    Her, Powers, Kerry, Obama, Hillary, every single one of them are lined up with the jihadists.

    Any Jew or Christian who supports Israel and votes for a Dem is an idiot.

      So true Obama is very bad news
