Obama refuses to meet Netanyahu after Iran row


The White House has rejected a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet President Barack Obama in the United States this month, an Israeli official said on Tuesday, after a row erupted between the allies over Iran’s nuclear programme.

An Israeli official told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Netanyahu’s aides had asked for a meeting when he visits the United Nations this month, and “the White House has got back to us and said it appears a meeting is not possible. It said that the president’s schedule will not permit that”.

Netanyahu has met with Obama on all the Israeli leader’s U.S. trips since 2009.

        I think the whole ‘west’ is sick of the Middle East. Period. Not just Israelis. And tired of pumping tax dollars into it too.

        🙂 It’s an interesting perspective.

          let me put your words in a more logical order: the west is sickening otherwise the east wasn’t so sick; the whole world is sick of the east including israel; mind you the sickness of the east will be contagious to the west & they will have to pay sooner or later for their sickening policies

          LOL if you are so keen to know the truth maybe you should also consider that USA is pumping the east from its petro dollars and also that USA is fed up with israel which costs USA so many billion dollars each year and that this is coming to an end very soon. Ya know that the truth is the whole truth and nothing but the truth and that part of the truth even though it appears true is a big lie like when you call assa3oudyya by ass 

        3. read it…its been that way for years….its good your starting to vere away from the mainstream media…theres another world out there you just have to expand your horizons a bit….
