This is the way Obama’s team speaks of a U.S. ally, while making disastrous concessions to an enemy of the U.S. “US official: Netanyahu’s response to Iran deal “˜weak and desperate,– by Adiv Sterman for the Times of Israel, December 1:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s vocal opposition to the P5+1 nations” signing of an interim deal with Iran last week was “weak and desperate,” an unnamed senior official at the White House reportedly said Sunday, adding that the Obama administration considered Netanyahu’s complaints to be of no great concern to the US diplomatic effort.
According to a Channel 10 news report, the senior American official added that although the White House believes Netanyahu will attempt to thwart US government policy by appealing to members of Congress, the Obama administration does not see the Israeli prime minister as a threat in this regard.
Netanyahu’s statements since the interim deal with Iran was signed early last Sunday “indicate a lack of self-confidence. We”re not excited about his vocal opposition,” the official was quoted saying.
Still, the unnamed official added, “We do not really fear the result. We have learned how to work in spite of him; he can be managed.”
The official added that Netanyahu’s opposition to the Geneva deal is understandable, but said that the prime minister’s response was causing more harm than good.
“Too bad he does not trust us,” the official said. “We know what we”re doing on Iran. We”re not naive.”…
Neville Chamberlain didn’t think he was naive, either.
