I don't know why I am posting this old video...

... probably because I am sick unto death of the lies people keep telling about Barak Obama.

Here's one, that I find especially galling. I'll do more later today, I hope

LIE: Netanyahu snubbed Bibi Netanyahu by ditching him to go have dinner with his kids.
TRUTH:  Obama simply left the room to give Netanyahu time to think over a proposal. Here's the report:
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."
As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."
This was obviously a negotiating tactic, as the kids were in NY at the time. There's a difference between snubbing someone, and playing hard ball. This was an example of the latter, not the former.

On the other hand, this is what a snub looks like:
In 1998, during his first term as Israeli prime minister, Mr Netanyahy angrily cancelled a dinner he was due to give with the then Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook.
And even if Obama did snub  Bibi - so what? That was four years ago. Since then, Netanyahu has been back to the White house several times. He's had his picture taken with the president, and he's been the president's guest for lunch and dinner. And apparently he had a nice time. Here's what he said in 2011:
Thank you, Mr. President.
Well, Mr. President — and first, I want to thank you and the first lady for the gracious hospitality that you’ve shown me, my wife and our entire delegation
More importantly, Obama has provided $315 million for Iron Shield and David Sling, in addition to the $3 billion the US gives Israel annually (money that Obama proposes in the budget he prepares and submits). He has condemned the Goldstone report, vetoed Palestenian statehood, and boycotted the Durban conference. He's told the Arab world that Israel must be accepted as a state, and he's told Hamas that they need to start governing and stop attacking. He's condemned missile attacks. He's said the US- Israeli relationship is "unshakable". He moved quickly to rescue Israeli embassy personal from Cairo. And he's given Israel unprecedented military support, including the largest joint exercise in history.(list partially recapped from Avi Safran's current Ami article)

Given this sterling track record, doesn't it seem small and petty to continue to whine about a frosty moment from four years ago?
