This was in response to Netanyahu ordering new settlements while Biden was in Israel, a huge insult and quite deliberate insult meant to appease the extreme right in Israel.
After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu.
Mr Obama was said to be livid when such an announcement derailed the visit to Israel by Joe Biden, the Vice-President, this month and his anger towards Israel does not appear to have cooled.
He returned to Israel yesterday isolated after what Israeli media have called a White House ambush for which he is largely to blame.
“The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated and altogether weaker than when he came,” the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz said.
As I’ve said before. Without the military and economic support that Israel receives from the US, it would not exist. It really needs to realize that. Kudos to Obama for not taking their crap any more.
