Obama White House calls Netanyahu "Chickenshit"

How much more needs to be said by this current administration until it is seen as the most anti-Israeli ever?  What else can they do to insult, demean and castigate Israel?  To call the leader of the only democracy in the Middle East a "chickenshit" and accuse him of also being recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering and pompous is nothing short of childish, and to accuse Netanyahu of aspergery, a claim that implies he suffers from Aspergers Syndrom is just plain nasty.

It shames me to be an American when the president acts in such a crass and insulting manner.

Senior Obama official: Israeli PM Netanyahu is 'chickenshit'

Add another item to the list of insults officials in the Obama administration have lobbed at Benjamin Netanyahu.

A senior Obama administration official recently described the Israeli prime minister as “chickenshit,” according to Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic.

The list also includes descriptions such as "recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and 'Aspergery,' " according to Goldberg.

“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars,” the official told Goldberg, explaining the meaning behind calling the leader of an ally a “chickenshit.”

“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 official said. "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."

A separate official told Goldberg that the administration believes Netanyahu to be a “coward” on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat, no longer believing he would ever launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
