Abe Foxman, national director Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a powerful Israeli lobbying organization, has slammed Presidents Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy for their anti-Semitic slur against Israeli prime minister Benji Netanyahu during recent G20 meeting in France.
Abe Foxman has called the titbit conversation between two Israel-Firsters, US President Barack Obama and his host at the Elysée Palace, French President Nicolas Sarkozy – calling Israeli Prime Minister Benji Netanyahu “a liar” and ” a pain in the neck”.
According to two journalists, Arnaud Leparmentier of Le Monde and Dan Israel of Arrêt sur Images, Sarkozy told Obama: “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he is a liar“. To which Obama replied: “You may be sick of him, but I have to deal with him every day“.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Abe Foxman said: “President Obama’s response to Mr. Sarkozy implies that he agrees with the French leader. In light of the revelations here, we hope the Obama administration will do everything it can to reassure Israel that the relationship remains on a sure footing and to reinvigorate trust between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, which clearly is not what it should be. What is sad is that we now have to worry to what extent these private views inform foreign policy decisions (in the Muslim East) of the US and France“.
According to Dan Israel, Sarkozy was responding to Obama’s questioning of French vote in favor of Palestinian membership in UNESCO. Dan Israel also reported that Obama asked Sarkozy to convince Mahmoud Abbas to slow down his bid for United Nations’ membership. Obama has already threatened to veto such bid at the UNSC.
