The Times Of Israel: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that he will not be deterred from “defending Israel” by personal attacks, in response to a report that quoted an anonymous US official calling him a “chicken—-.”
“I was personally attacked purely because I defend Israel, and despite all the attacks against me, I will continue to defend our country, I will continue to defend the citizens of Israel,” Netanyahu told the Knesset.
Opinion: We wrote about this yesterday. My first inclination was to expose the hypocrisy of comparing PM Netanyahu with former secular progressive Jewish leaders.
But as I reflected on my post, it occurred to me that I could not remember any time in history that a member of a White House team actually called the leader of any nation a chicken****.
Let alone an ally.
But this is the Barack Hussein Obama administration. This ideologically anti-Semitic team has denigrated and harassed PM Netanyahu over and over again for six years, even drawing a moral equivalence with the terror group Hamas.
America has and will continue to pay for our leaders’ behavior. The covenant (Genesis 12:3) God made with Abraham was never rescinded, but reinforced in Romans 9:3-4, meaning it still applies today.
And here is the part that amazes even me; no one in the White House is apologizing for it.
