Looks like Obama’s White House was directly involved in the bid to oust Netanyahu and it was motivated by revenge, according to a senior Jerusalem official:
TIMES OF ISRAEL – The White House was directly involved in an attempt to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last week’s general election, during a nadir in ties between the Israeli leader and US President Barack Obama, a senior Jerusalem official said Tuesday.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election, having been partially motivated by a desire for revenge over Netanyahu’s polarizing speech before Congress earlier this month, which sought to undermine the president’s key foreign policy initiative – a nuclear deal with Iran.
“The White House is driven by three main motives,” the senior official said. “The first is revenge [over the Congress speech]. The second is frustration: It’s no secret that they were involved in an attempt to bring down the Netanyahu government – something that we have clear knowledge of – and failed. The third [motive] is the administration’s attempt to divert attention from the negotiations with Iran to the Palestinian issue.”
Obama has always hated voices of dissent, but the ones he really hates are those that are effective and that’s why our narcissist, petulant man-child president went after Netanyahu.
Obama can claim he’s all about Democracy and ensuring freedom of dissent, but when it comes down to it he’s just a tyrant who believes voices of dissent should be squashed lest they get in the way of his anti-Israel agenda.
