In an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, U.S. officials praise the prime minister’s caution about starting wars but decry his distaste for the peace process.



As the ongoing crisis in U.S.-relations continues, a report by The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg cites a senior U.S. official as saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “a chicken# prime minister,” who only cares about his political survival.

“The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chicken#,” he was cited as saying. According to Goldberg, the Obama administration official said that Netanyahu frustrates the White House and the U.S. State Department the most.

“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” the official said. “The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states. The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. He’s not [Yitzhak] Rabin, he’s not [Ariel] Sharon, he’s certainly no [Menachem] Begin. He’s got no guts.”


U.S. official says Netanyahu is a 'chiken#' PM'

Well there you, it seems the relation between Israel and the US is getting worse everyday. I kinda agree with the statement that says Netanyahu is a chickens*** ......amongst other things of course, and he only cares about his political career.

Netanyahu is a psychopath and a liar. The US needs to stop supporting this apartheid Zionist regime ASAP.

Seriously, Who needs friends like these ?

Not to get off-topic, but you might want to censor that headline before a mod does it for you.

On topic: I don't pay much attention to the talking heads. It's all rhetoric, anyway. Though I expect Netanyahu will have a courteous reply for that US Official.

Excellent, even if it's rhetoric...


About time someone in the Political arena said it like it is.

All leaders are. They follow orders.

But I think he might've been speaking about our president

Sometimes you need to call a spade a spade.

Yes, there is too much honesty in Politics, no need for more of it...

Zounds like a load of crap to me. Benjamin Netanyahu has probably killed enough people already that would constitute a warlike scenario. I have no idea why some US official comes out with a 'no guts' statement..that's crazy, unless the US actually want to take on Netanyahu in a scrap. Something is festering, dancing Israelis...anyone?

Government officials in Israel is constantly insulting the members of our government so turn about is fair play. But more than likely Obama will make this person apologize for his remarks either that or congress will scream about it because you know it's not a good idea to make the boss made.

Mad or 'made' there is an undercurrent about something. The Chicken remark is just a platform.

That's fine.

But when did we stop calling an ally and ally?

The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states.


Bang on the money comment and I hope this shakes up the U.S./Israel relationship

Both Iran and Iraq come to mind. They are only an ally as long as they can be used. Unfortunately in this scenario it's the US that's being used.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

It may be true but it's not a smart thing to say it out loud like that in the press. It destroys future efforts. Politics is a fine game played on the head of pin. This is just someone coming along with a sledge hammer and smashing and flailing. As much as many may like what is said and agree with it, it shouldn't have been said.

Why? Bibi's government has been ever so critical about the Obama administration. If you can't take it, don't dish it.

I hear ya'. And I think Bibi is a nutter. But we aren't supposed to resort to that. Leave him flailing and looking like the child and we should stay above it (and him).

When they started behaving like an apartheid power hungry regime... In the age of social media... Youre not allowed to do that. You have to do it secretly. Or in other words not when the UN are protecting a school full of children when you decide to bomb it.

This made me laugh so hard as I had just finished reading an article on how the U.S. is trying hard to mend ties with Israel.

Guess this guy didn't get the memo. Haha.

The problems, beside the insults and the whining, are the consequences of each one behaviour.
Interesting article hereunder.
