Hat Tip: A great patriot: My Aunt Carla from St. Louis [home of the World Champion Cardinals]

I know most of you have heard about the dissing of Benjamin Netanyahu after a meeting at the summit of G-20 nations in Cannes.  In a private conversation  between French president Nicolas Sarkozy and president Obama, an open microphone caught there dislike, oops I mean talk about Prime Minister Netanyahu.
There was a great article in the Jewish World Review about this from Arnold Ahlert that I hope everyone reads.

Here is the main part of the article:

In the first part of the exchange between the two men Obama criticized Sarkozy for not giving him a heads-up on the fact that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid to join UNESCO. That's the same UNESCO which had its portion of U.S. funds cut off by an American Congress which just can't find any humor — or legality (U.S. law bars funding any organization which admits Palestine as a member before it reaches a peace deal negotiated with Israel) — in subsidizing terrorist-abetting organizations with taxpayer funds.

It should be noted that the president hardly agrees. "The United States remains deeply committed to UNESCO and its noble mission to build peace in the minds of men and women," said U.S. envoy to UNESCO, David Killion — who stressed that continuing U.S. participation was not in doubt. "Despite the challenges ahead, we pledge to continue our efforts to find ways to support and strengthen the important work of this vital organization." In other words, in a reaction which is rapidly becoming the modus operandi for this administration, Obama and company are going to do their best to figure out a way to ignore Congress and do as they please.

That's the non-juicy part of the exchange between Sarkozy and Obama. The juicy part was about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "I cannot stand him. He is a liar," said Sarkozy. Not to be outdone Obama reportedly replied, "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"
That sure lets the cat out of the proverbial bag, doesn't it? Nothing like a Wiki-leaks kind of moment for confirming what a lot of Americans — with the notable exception of comatose Jewish American liberals — have long suspected regarding the president's "unstinting commitment" to Israel.
By the way, I was the one that underlined Ahlert's great line on Jewish American liberals.

Oh, oh, I hope the ADL doesn't get a hold of this.  They might think we are making Israel a wedge issue and we can't have that, can we ADL.

Please read Ahlert's great article in its entirety: Open-Mics and Closed Minds.
