Obama Administration Is ‘Not to Ever Second-Guess Me Again’: Israeli Prime Minister Lashes Out

After a U.S.- and U.N.-brokered cease-fire fell apart hours after it began — because, Israeli officials said, Hamas “flagrantly violated” the truce —  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at President Barack Obama’s White House, instructing the administration, “not to ever second-guess me again.”

As the Associated Press reported:

An Israeli official said the Netanyahu government viewed both Hamas and Qatar as having violated the commitment given to the U.S. and the U.N. and that it expected the international community to take practical steps as part of a “strong and swift response,” especially regarding the return of the abducted soldier.

In a phone call with U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, Netanyahu vented his anger, according to people familiar with the call.

Netanyahu told Shapiro the Obama administration was “not to ever second-guess me again” and that Washington should trust his judgment on how to deal with Hamas, according to the people. Netanyahu added that he now “expected” the U.S. and other countries to fully support Israel’s offensive in Gaza, according to those familiar with the call. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name.

The tongue-lashing from Netanyahu seems to be merely the latest indication that the Obama administration is ill-equipped to settle the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

On Sunday, TheBlaze reported on the Israeli media’s widespread disdain for Secretary of State John Kerry, who was called “pathetic” and “embarrassing” and whose apparently naive approach to the peace process brought comparisons to “an alien, who just disembarked his spaceship in the Mideast.”

Maybe you could rub yourselves off as he personally kills Honduran children as they cross the border with his bare hands as a warning to the rest.

Oh boy. First you think Putin is a real man and Obama is a sissy. Now you think this guy has brains and gonads and Obama doesn't. Why do you sound so prejudiced and resentful of OUR country's leader and so fond of foreign leaders? Kinda un-American, in my opinion.

Tell us PLEASE precisely what Obama should do about this...with details ,okay?

Off topic a minute, but I'm sorry to hear you have been in the hospital.  I hope all is okay and you are doing better.

In all fairness, she said she has been in the hospital and just got home. She's already trying to catch up with notifications.  The least you could have done was to show compassion for her having been in the hospital.  Then, perhaps you could have asked her if she would respond later when she has a little more time.  How can you expect answers when she just got home?
