Obama Makes Completely Unsurprising Slam at Netanyahu

We've known for a long time that Obama doesn't like Israel, and especially their current leader:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly told US President Barack Obama that he could not "stand" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that he thinks the Israeli premier "is a liar."

According to a Monday report in the French website "Arret sur Images," after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington's strong objection to the move.

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: "I cannot stand him. He is a liar." According to the report, Obama replied: "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"

The remark was naturally meant to be said in confidence, but the two leaders' microphones were accidently left on, making the would-be private comment embarrassingly public.
It must be a lonely feeling for Israel to realize their last ally has deserted them.

Question for Sarkozy: What, precisely, has Netanyahu lied about?

Question for Obama: Does this mean you're throwing in the towel on the Jewish vote, and trying to wrap up the anti-Semitic vote instead?

I think Israel has known for some time now that Obama is no friend of theirs. Maybe now they think all of America agrees with him... I certainly hope not!
