The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.

An official in Jerusalem said that the prime minister’s office sent the White House a message stating that although Netanyahu will spend only two and a half days on U.S. soil, he is interested in meeting Obama and is willing to travel especially to the U.S. capital. The official added that the White House rejected the request and said that at this time Obama’s schedule does not allow for a meeting.

The White House’s response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting the president.

Earlier on Tuesday, Netanyahu launched an unprecedented verbal attack on the U.S. government over its stance on the Iranian nuclear program.

“The world tells Israel ‘wait, there’s still time’. And I say, ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel,” Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday.

“Now if Iran knows that there is no red line. If Iran knows that there is no deadline, what will it do? Exactly what it’s doing. It’s continuing, without any interference, towards obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs,” he said.

Also on Tuesday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that if Iran decides to make a nuclear weapon, the United States would have a little more than a year to act to stop it.”

    Like I said this is on Fox now as we speak here, in this very minute.

    Will re-post and link back to you. This is unfathomable. Obama is making fools of all of us.

  4. Well, I guess people will finally realize whom we are dealing with. Will American Jews remain silent?

    Israel is facing a nuclear Iran alone.

    Thats first of all bad news for : The USA ! We will probably soon see the USA losing its status as a superpower for ” He who curses Israel will be cursed !” If the US government is cursing Israel this means more troubles for this already shaken nation…. Buckle up, USA – your ride is getting rougher and rougher ! I wont be among those who will cry when you go……

  6. Luis Says:

    In the last hour, Fox has reported a few more times about Obama not meeting the israeli PM so this issue is well known by now.

  7. Lion of Zion Says:

    Dear friends – we are all troubled by whats developping before our eyes – we have families, we prefer peace to war….But let me tell you that Israel must NOT fear ! Israel is the only nation on earth with a covenant with the one and only God, the God of Israel ! If anything is real then its HIS presence and HIS will to carry Israel through this difficult time too ! Check the scriptures – see how HE led Israel out of egypt by doing ”impossible things” like dividing the sea ! HE is the same yesterday and today and so is HIS comittment to Israel ! Get encouraged, friends ! We will see HIS miraculous help ! But woe, woe to Israels enemies : they will end like pharaos troops, dying in the closing sea !

    If the Romney campaign advisors have any common sense or to use a Yiddish word: seykhl; they would have Romney meet the Prime Minister and make a big loud production of it. Perhaps a few more Jewish voters might understand the situation and vote Republican (some might be brave enough to risk the eternal damnation of such an act)

      That is a great idea. Talk about a slap in the face to Obama. Mitt has enough cover since BeBe and he worked together and are friends that it would not be seen as trying to undermine BHO.

  9. Louisiana Steve Says:

    Obama’s behavior is not surprising given the betrayals he has done against us all in the past. Once again, he has thrown someone under the bus, only this time it’s the entire country of Israel. Re-election is all that matters to this guy and he will stop nowhere to make it so. However, I do think Iran is so pumped over recent events, they will make a mistake and draw the US into any future conflict. If the US military comes under fire, they WILL NOT sit idly by. You can bet on it.

    From Fox News:

    “Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, tweeted: “How ironic that the #POTUS has time for high dollar $40K-a-head fundraiser with @JayZ and @Beyonce but not for the PM of Israel.”

    How True, How True

    Israel, the Rubicon has been crossed, there is no turning back.

  12. Kayvan Says:

    Mr. Netanyahu should call Obama to tell him:
    with a friend like you, I don’t need thousands of enemies.

  13. Kayvan Says:

    The appeasers ,in the late 1930s Europe, used to turn their face away or ignore or deny what was happening in Germany. Today , they all talk about the imminent danger, but they openly say they can’t/ don’t do anything about it. It means that “never again” should not be taken for granted, it may happen again.

  14. Michael Says:

    The problem is ,besides the religious remarks on here ,half of you believe this propaganda about this being the holocaust all over again.Ive watched Jewish TV many times and have seen the beat of the war drum being made loud and clear.To hell with all those who do not side with Israel ? Scuse me I thinks that’s a bit over the top as we say in America.Iran and Israel are but two nations on this planet who do not speak for all of those who have nothing to do with this fight and do not want to be sucked into WW3 !! The fact remains that out of the two nations Israel alone has the nuke and as of lately a very itchy trigger finger.There are many of us who feel that Israel has lost its collective mind and have been brainwashed into this Apocalyptic mindset.

    However I would be remiss in saying that’s the ideology of all Jews in the holy land .Many are dead set against this idea of prosecuting for a crime Iran has yet to commit.Bibi as he is called is choosing his timing to try and take Obama down and put his little puppet Romney in the white house.Once Obama falls into his trap of making him look weak, then its bombs away and to hell with what most on this planet are against.I personally give credit to Obama for not playing this game and falling into Bibi’s trap.Ive watched Bibi for years and do not trust his judgement at all.

    Ill say it again Israel needs to come clean on its nukes and hold up to its obligation as a nation who has tactical nukes.

      Hello mister Nobel Prize for Optimism !

      So if your islamo-fascist neighbor repeatedly expresses his hatred for you, his willingness to get the neighborhood rid of you, and builds a big cannon aimed at your house, and the police refuses to intervene, what do you do ?
      You escape or you wait peacefully until he kills you ? And do you shout nervously at your realistic wife if she tells you to preemptively attack your neighbor ?

    We are just have been informed that the american ambassador in Libya has been killed. The failure of the Obama & comp. policies is clear for all now. Israel must learn its lessons and act accordingly .
