“The true rift between Netanyahu and Obama is about policy, not politesse” (that and the fact that Obama hates Bibi’s guts).
From the article:
So here, again, are the facts: John Boehner invited Bibi to speak on an issue of national importance to both the United States and to Israel, and Bibi accepted. The White House was informed of the invitation in advance, as is proper. Democrats were not consulted. Tzipi Livni, Buji Herzog, Jonathan Greenblatt, and the editorial board of the New York Times were not consulted either. This is all according to custom and according to precedent.
Enough said. Someone IS spitting in someone’s face here, but Bibi is the one getting spit on.
