New York Times – Susan E. Rice, President Obama’s national security adviser, sharply criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel on Tuesday over his plans to address a joint meeting of Congress next week, saying his actions had hurt his nation’s relationship with the United States.

Mr. Netanyahu’s decision to travel to Washington to deliver the speech two weeks before the Israeli elections has “injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate, I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship,” Ms. Rice said in an interview on the PBS television program Charlie Rose.

    The caliph Hussein Obama has a harem of anti Israel do gooders advising him.I wonder what these hos will say when Israel (which is now alone) uses nukes to bring bring Iran down. the Kurds will break a way and Iran will be a shell of itself.

    What is the Obama administration so afraid of? such a n unbalanced and vigorous response to an invitation from the Congress. Clearly something is amiss.

  • defiantjewess

    who cares, we Jews don’t. at least the ones with some piss and vinegar left. Susan Rice is a drone for Obama.

      It is quite difficult to understand how most of the JEWS are this and that and control what you would think is the entire world. Perhaps my thinking is misguided and yet it seems the only difference between Jews of any race.There are many races of Jews. What makes Jews Jews and time period which makes them different is the emotion of but one word. LOVE.. It appears that most people of any country are completely unaware that Israel’s population of citizens is 33% Arabs.This 33% holds positions in the Israeli government. For centuries Jews and Arabs have lived side by side in harmony.How many of you are in knowledge of exactly how long it takes an Israeli military fighter from take of until it is flying over enemy territory. Depending on the pt of take off; at the most 3 minutes. So where do Israeli fighters practice?
      THE JEWS CONTROL ALL THE WORLDS MONEY. Yah sure. How many of you anti jewish humans have any idea how this craziness came about Well it seems that thousands of years ago Jewish tribes were some how barred from doing business within the Cities gates after sun down. Some how their own citizens would not loan them any money. The Jews were basically merchants who lived outside the cities gates. They loaned men of good reputation money. And yet through the loaning of funds, so others of non Jewish Faith could prospers control the world. POPPY COCK OR COCKY PROP. THINK. Netanyahu is far from dumb.
      It amazes me that Israel still is willing to even talk to men of such hate. Several month before 9/11 the US press was crucifying Israel for their cold blooded sniper attacks on innocent single individual who were being blown up indiscriminately. Really? These innocent men and women were only different in their dress.. All of them were wearing enough explosives to take down a block of an Israeli city. How did Israel learn this. Well it seems that Sephardic Jews and Palestinians look the same. BECAUSE THEY ARE.And where terrorist groups put wooden guns in 3 year old little childrens hands. Mossad and other super duper secret organizations are seeking the parents approval to allow them to begin training children to become infiltrators. Jimmy Carter is a very fine man. And yet he destroyed our intellignece advantage.How many of you had knowledge that less then 24 hours after 911…1.Laura Bush and our President were hosting a member of the Saudi Government, affectionately known as Babel Bush to dinner at the white House?
      The next day 24 Air Force jets returned 24 members of the Ben Laden family in the United States back home.THINK for 24 hours before you go beserk.

    This is not a quarrel between the US and Israel. It is a fight between Netanyahu and Obama because Obama means to conclude an agreement with Iran that leaves Iran on the threshold of making a nuclear bomb. What Obama has agreed to could not pass the Senate. Therefore, Obama is calling it an agreement rather than a treaty which requires a 2/3 vote. It remains to be seen how many Senate Democrats will support the President. Not one has said that he/she will support him yet.

    Iran wants to destroy Israel. Israel must destroys Iran’s nuclear sites. The world cares little for Israel.

    • JadedInSanDieg

      I could not agree more fully with Bernard Rosenberg. Fact is- America’s foreign policy and nuclear stance towards Iran has remained unchanged and unquestioned for the last 40 years: Iran MUST NOT come into possession of a nuclear weapon. This policy has changed under Barack Obama, a man who, in regards to foreign policy- is uninformed at best and delusional at the worst. Case in point- in 2009, just 10 weeks after his inauguration, Obama addressed Prague’s Hradcany Square and gave his vision for a “nuclear-free” future- which showed just how immature and provincial and absurd our Commander in Chief truly is. Undaunted, Obama has since flip-flopped on his views and has apparently decided that it is best to simply arm EVERYONE with nuclear weapons and turn them loose because NOBODY is foolish enough to drop the “Big One” in his mind. Korea has laughed at us and they are now a nuclear power. And the arming of Iran is simply Obama’s way of creating “nuclear equality” in the Mid East. After all, nobody really TRUSTS Israel to be the only nuclear superpower in the region, right? The Presidential Delusional on Capital HIll are preparing to usher in WWIII and they are too arrogant to even see it. However, you can be assured that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu understands FULLY what is happening. The day is now coming that Iran WILL attack Israel with nuclear weapons. This WILL happen within 5 years, maybe 10 at best. Israel will blow to hell Iran and it’s ally Russia who will pony up with Iran to get at Israel’s oil. Bibi GETS IT folks! Wakee-wakee! Nobody is going to care about the global economy that is swirling around the bowl when there is a nuclear fallout cloud hanging over the Middle East. Bibi tried to warn us, but we didn’t listen. And now the whole world will pay for America’s mistake.

      It appears that history is once again repeating itself and the ruddy Hebrew shepherd boy is once again left to stand alone and face the giant with his little sling and stones. And once again, the fool and his money are on the giant…
