Anonymous Obama Official Anonymously Calls Netanyahu a "Coward"

Nothing says courage like anonymously slandering someone

Obama’s people certainly are good at inverting the basic meaning of words. Letting your country get nuked is courageous. Fighting to stop it is cowardly.

Of course this description comes from Atlantic/Bloomberg troll Jeffrey Goldberg who has been known to twist the content high profile interviews as flexibly as possible. We already saw that after Castro had to come out and correct his spin on the interview.

But Obama Inc. is filled with leftists who have little foreign policy experience and hate Israel. And Jeffrey Goldberg is happy to be their useful idiot. Obama Inc. loses its mind when criticized by some Israeli politician, but in true cowardly fashion, doles out attacks on Israeli politicians to malicious trolls like Jeffrey Goldberg.

So he’s happy enough to turn out an article full of anonymous quotes calling Netanyahu “Recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and “Aspergery” and “chickenshit”.

Oh and a coward.

Because nothing says courage like anonymously slandering someone to a coward who trolls using articles full of supposed quotes from anonymous sources.

It’s like a cursed circle of cowardice.

When he isn’t quoting supposed anonymous officials, Goldberg puts forward his own miserably cowardly point of view by arguing, “It is true that Jews have a moral right to live anywhere they want in Jerusalem, their holiest city. It is also true that a mature government understands that not all rights have to be exercised simultaneously.”

Sure. Swap in blacks for Jews and Jerusalem for Alabama and see how that works. No?

But this entire cowardly diatribe wouldn’t do without one coward who is always willing to put his name on the record for whatever view he thinks is popular at the moment.

“The Israelis do not show sufficient appreciation for America’s role in backing Israel, economically, militarily and politically,” Abraham Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, told me.

Who are the Americans and who are the Israelis?

America polls better in Israel than anywhere else. And vice versa. Is Obama, America? Is Netanyahu, Israel? About as much as Abe Foxman and his useless parasitic organization represents Jews.
