Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly told Barack Obama on Monday that he would never compromise on Israel's security even as the U.S. president sought to reassure him on Iran nuclear diplomacy and pressure him on Middle East peace talks.
In a White House meeting overshadowed by the Ukraine crisis, the two leaders avoided any direct clash during a brief press appearance but were unable to paper over differences on a pair of sensitive diplomatic drives that have stoked tensions between them.
Obama assured Netanyahu of his "absolute commitment" to preventing Iran from developing atomic weapons, despite the Israeli leader's deep skepticism over U.S.-led efforts to reach a final international deal to curb Tehran's nuclear program.
But Obama also urged Netanyahu to make "tough decisions" to help salvage a faltering U.S.-brokered peace process aimed at reaching a framework agreement with the Palestinians and extending talks beyond an April target date for an elusive final accord.
"The Israeli people expect me to stand strong against criticism and pressure," Netanyahu told Obama.
Keep standing strong and stand your ground (Your Country) and don't buy a thing Obama is telling you.. Obama does not have your back he doesn't even have America's back..
Boy, are you ever right !!!
More Americans support Netanyahu and Israel than support our own fraud President Barack Obama. Frankly, Netanyahu would be a much better President of the United States than Obama ever thought about being. Netanyahu is a leader and totally devoted to the welfare of his people and his nation. We have run off the track as a country and it is now up to We the People to rescue America from destruction. Support the true American Conservatives in government (there are a few) and the Tea Party groups because they are all that is standing between our country and "fundamental transformation" into a MARXIST/SOCIALIST/COMMUNIIST/STATISTIST society from which there will be little hope of recovery.
I am sure Netanyahu knows not to trust Obama. Dictator Obama will say one thing and do the other.
Netanyahu is no fool... an "assurance " from Obama is worthless.
Netanyahu is no dummy, so I expect that he knows Obama is lying to him about being serious about stopping Iran's nukes program.
I can give him a good rule of thumb to use.... If Obama's lips are moving, he's probably lying!
For God and Country!
Mr.Netanyahu..Do NOT give in to Obama...He is trying to bully you, so don't let him ...IGNORE him like Putin did, and if you want ..BITCH SLAP him like Putin did !! WE in America support you and so does GOD !!! God bless you and the people of Israel !!!!!
Stand your ground we the people are with you and we will get rid of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SOCIALIST DEM. PARTY AND ITS MEMBERS in the next election and then Obama will be tried for Treason along with Hillary and Holder. Hanging is good enough punishment for those who caused Americans to be murdered.
I hope Netanyahu washed his hands after meeting with the Great liar.
Once again, you have a man and a boy; the man will win every time!
good, Israel will never be put down again. Don't they realize that yet? Israel is GOD's Country and he isn't going to allow it to be destroyed or overtaken again! Just because scumbama isn't with you doesn't mean that the American people aren't. We stand with you UNITED!
I think every FREEDOM LOVING person alive on the planet Earth should push back against obummer and his evil minions.
