Channel One in Israel has produced what it claims to be a leaked transcript of a conversation between US President Barak, “I’ve got your back, Israel,” Obama and Israeli PM, Benjamin Netanyahu in which the President of the United States tries to bully Israel into submission to its enemies. “The White House quickly issued a denial, with Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser, calling the supposed transcript of the call “totally false,” in effect, asking those who have read the transcript to disregard an exchange that, if true as reported, perfectly explains what has appeared to be the exasperating hesitancy of Netanyahu and his cabinet to vigorously pursue action in Gaza that would end Hamas’s ability to continue bombing, kidnapping and murdering Israeli Jews. Netanyahu’s office, for what it is worth, also provided a twitter denial reproduced in an article in Time.
Pray for Benjamin Netanyahu. Anyone want his job? True or false, the transcript fits the strangely unfolding events of the last three weeks as Israel has been hesitant to get an essential job done, puzzling its people with unilateral cease fires and excruciating deliberateness in Gaza while her citizens and soldiers remain in harm’s way.
In Leaked Tape, Hostile Obama Tries to Force PM to Accept Truce (excerpt below)
Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities – particularly airstrikes…I trust Qatar and Turkey, and Israel is in no position to choose its mediators.
President Obama “trusts” Qatar? Maybe Barak hasn’t seen this video, recently delivered from the pulpit there, about “good things to come.”
and I suppose it’s also possible that the leader of the free world is unaware of Qatar’s huge investment in Western companies and Hamas terror.
The Qatari portfolio includes British supermarket giant Sainsbury’s, French oil company Total, Porsche, Volkswagen, Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona; it also gives millions to Hamas.
If Obama trusts Qatar to deal fairly on Israel’s behalf in a negotiation, why not also Turkey, whose PM considers Israel a terrorist state?
But the US Denial is on Twitter, So It Must be True (that the transcript is false)
