You needn’t be a body language expert to realize US President Barack Obama does not like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Apparently, it is enough that you be within earshot (via Gateway Pundit).
Shortly after the photo-op meeting and “working lunch” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the one that saw President Obama openly chastised by the Prime Minister for Obama’s earlier public comments regarding wanting to see Israel return to its 1967 borders, the president verbally “went off” on Richard Daley in the private study area that adjoins the Oval Office. President Obama’s verbal attack was clearly heard by numerous staff up and down the West Wing hallways.
The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly, “What the f-ck was that!?” That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again! Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.
Sounds like Obama could have do with a chill pill. Or even something else.
Unless I am reading into things, and his reference to “Never again” meant to convey his disapproval of the notion he would ever suggest Israel return to the Auschwitz lines.
