PM to ministers: Don't talk about Obama

Following series of undiplomatic statements by Likud MKs, Netanyahu orders party's lawmakers not to comment on US president's re-election without coordinating statements with his office
.........................................................

Following the negative responses, Ynet has learned, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered all of his party's ministers and Knesset members to avoid commenting on Obama's re-election without coordinating their statements with the Prime Minister's Office.
..........................................................

Knesset Member Danny Danon was one of the first to express his disappointment with the election results, saying that Obama cannot be trusted. "The State of Israel will not surrender to Obama. We have no one to rely on but ourselves," he argued.

Another Likud lawmaker said that "Obama is not good for Israel and we're concerned that he will try to pressure Israel into making concessions because of his chilly relationship with Netanyahu."

1. Tsk, ignored again, I suppose his feelings are hurt.

You can see why he and Romney got along though, that "only say nice things to me" attitude.

3. I wonder if we should bring up the notion that meddling in US politics is

a bad idea again yet? Or would that be insensitive? I don't think I've ever seen such a bad mis-read. I, at least, know that I don't understand Israeli politics. But, I can also guarantee you Bibi does not grok the USA today, if he ever did.

4. There wasn't any "meddling in US politics"

That was an invention from certain recesses of the media who like to make issues where none exist.

5. I know what I saw. I am not interested in any shallow arguments about nomenclature.

And I don't read those "media" you speak of, unless someone forces it on me here.
