The ‘Business-Like Relationship,’ Spying and Kumbayah

Barack Obama insists that his petulant and petty behavior toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu isn’t personal. “There’s a tendency … to frame this somehow as a personal issue between myself and Prime Minister Netanyahu,” Obama said Tuesday. “[T]he notion is, well, if we all just get along and everybody cools down, then somehow the problem goes away. I have a very business-like relationship with the prime minister. I’ve met him more than any other world leader. I talk to him all the time. He is representing his country’s interests the way he thinks he needs to and I’m doing the same. So the issue is not a matter of relations between leaders. The issue is a very clear, substantive challenge. We believe that two states is the best path forward for Israel’s security, for Palestinian aspirations and for regional stability. … Prime Minister Netanyahu has a different approach. And so this can’t be reduced to a matter of somehow let’s all, you know, hold hands and sing Kumbayah. This is a matter of figuring out how do we get through a real knotty policy difference that has great consequences for both countries and for the region.” No doubt there are substantive policy differences – after all, Obama’s bowing to the Iranians. He tries to maintain the appearance of just being a practical guy, but Obama’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder means he can’t abide anything he perceives as a personal slight. Netanyahu has crossed that red line.

On another note, Obama is upset that Israel reportedly spied on negotiations with Iran and shared information with Congress. But he found out because the U.S. was spying on Israel. Furthermore, might the Israelis have been spying on Iran, and not the U.S.? After all, Iran regularly threatens to annihilate Israel, and nuclear weapons would make that a bit easier. Finally, Obama might try another novel idea: communicating with Congress himself.
