Netanyahu goes gaga over planned Obama visit
February 11, 2013

TEL AVIV: Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the civil war in Syria and stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts will top the agenda of US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.

“It is a very important visit that will emphasise the strong alliance between Israel and the United States,” Netanyahu, who has had a testy relationship with Obama, told his cabinet.

The White House announced on Tuesday that Obama plans to visit Israel, the West Bank and Jordan this spring, raising prospects of a new US push to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts frozen for the past two years.

The White House gave no exact dates for the trip, Obama’s first to Israel since taking office.

Israel’s Channel 10 television station cited unnamed sources in Washington last week saying the visit to Israel would start on March 20.

3. It's all about attention grabbing headlines

That seems to be the only way some of these news outlets can get clicks.

4. And Passover starts March 25

So will he still be in the Middle East then, or is this a pre-holiday whirlwind visit?

6. LOL at this headline. The exact same Reuters story on Haaretz is:

Iran, Syria, Palestinians to top agenda of Netanyahu-Obama's Israel meeting

7. I SOOOOO do not trust Netanyahu. If I had a say in it, I would not advise Obama to go over there.

Netanyahu is a cold blooded killer, always has been, always will be.

8. The world desperately needs peace in that region, and has for a long time.

I hope President Obama's trip will at least ease tensions in the area, and seriously start to address the long-term issues that can begin dialogue on a lasting peace.
