Although it is no secret that TOA has never really been fond of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu — It seems they are no longer afraid to show it.
For those of you who are unaware, Benjamin Netanyahu was recently re-elected by a landslide in Israeli elections — However many believe that TOA was Secretly hoping he would lose this election.
However announcements came earlier Today that revealed that Netanyahu would continue to oversee the safety and security of the Nation of Israel. However unlike protocol, President Obama didn’t take the time to congratulate Netanyahu on his victory nor did his aide find the time to mention him even once while addressing CNN.
As reported by WeeklyStandard —
“On CNN this morning, White House aide David Simas avoided congratulating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the Israeli elections. Instead, he would only congratulate the Israeli people on having an election.”
“We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And we’re going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and we’re not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward,” Simas said.
