    Why bother? He isn't serious about peace and only visits to collect more U.S. taxpayer hand-outs. Stop giving him $ until they are serious about a real peace deal.

    Obama should refuse to meet Netanyahu until all Israeli settlements in Palestinian areas are abandoned and new construction stopped. Also, all aid to Israel should be cut off. "Friends" like Israel we don't need.

    Is the war mogerer going to ask for more U.S. aid? If so, our answer should be know. Israel needs to stop building settlements and making the peace process impossible to move forward. This almost reminds me of the final episode of 24.

    What will be "changed?"

    USA perspective
    • Has the USA charismatic president Obama "change" his policy after his many offers and distortion of history– toward the Muslims without getting absolutely nothing in return?
    ( except a more radical- Iran- Yemen-Somalia and Taliban offensives in Pakistan and Afghanistan and more Jihad by individuals in USA)
    • Will he reconsider his Chamberlinan policy of paying to the Muslims with the Israel coin?

    Israel perspective
    • Will Natanyahu accept to play Chehoslovacky roll ahead of WW2?
    I wonder what will be the outcome

    What do they want now and how much money? Or are they going to apolize to Joe Biden for THEIR rude behavior? No more money PM. Get it from your own country since you guys seem to criticize the US so much.

    It's time to put pressure on him. He is doing everything to prevent peace in the region and is endangering OUR security.

    R e s p e c t. Let's see if President Obama can give an oscar winning
    appearance this time, and at least PRETEND to care about Israel (not
    Palestine only, as we all know his true feelings now). But for Propaganda purposes he should at least embrace our great ally for the
    cameras.... but not likely. He will never bow to him, like he usually does to foreign leaders. Cordial welcome? Not likely... but Smile Barak, do it for the cameras.

    Hopefully Netanyahu will tell Obama that he has just 5 more months before his party is unceremoniously kicked out the door thanks to Barry's stellar leadership and that Barry himself has just 2 years of sitting idly in the white house after which he is sent packing due to his epic failed presidency. Box score: 4 years, no accomplishments, 1 major bill passed which is overwhelmingly rejected by the populace, quadrupled debt, single-handedly destroyed his party and sat by and watched the biggest environmental disaster in American history take place without lifting a finger to help. Heckuva job, Barry!

    I just hope Natanyahu doesn't accept an invitation from Obama for another dinner.

    All you liberals should get your
    heads out of the shade.
    Obama would be wise to take some
    advise from Netanyahu. He was
    going hand to hand combat with
    terrorists when Obama was in
    grammar school in Indonesia.
    Netanyahu disarmed a terrorist
    in an airport on board a plane years
    ago and has much more experience
    than anyone in our State Department
    does in anti-terrorism. Just keep drinking
    your cool aid guys and the conservatives
    will keep protecting your unrealistic butts.

    So, will Oblamer be as disrespectful to his guest this time as he was last time.

    HEY LIBRARIAN. You must be talking about nobamby. I will bet Netanyahu gets left in a cloak room again for an hour while our dear leader goes to dinner. nobamby would not do that to any other head of state and there is no wonder why Israel and many other heads of state have little or no respect for nobamby. Our comic in chief is a joke to North Korea, Iran and about every other country. PATHETIC

    Nutinyahoo should simply stay in Israel; this war monger, armed with over 100 of the USA given nukes is clearly a danger to the entire planet...

    Why? Is Obozo lacking for media attention? Need another photo op? Or maybe he wants to look tough as he insults one of our closest allies AGAIN?

    If I was Netanyahu I wouldn't be seen with the weak Obozo.

    Or maybe he's coming to tell Obozo that he will do his dirty work and take out Iran? Yes, those "sanctions" are working sooo wonderfully.

    You say you are a resident of Texas, to which country are you more loyal, the USA or Israel?

  19. To visit Washington...?

    Netanyahu to visit Washington again...Pres Obama reliazed that the last and not so long ago visit was wrong for him to make Netanyahu to slip in and out from the White House by the back door...on the other hand Felipe Calderon was given a state dinner to meddle in domestic affairs while Obama stood by his side.......................................................!

    If I could send him a dozen roses , i would. President Obama take the time to read Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38...let it sink in your soul. I stand with Israel....and even though you may think you shouldn't should! God will not be mocked in any way!

    After the despicable way Isreal's last visitor to this country was treated by our president I'm surprised any of them would come again. This country owes Isreal a major apology for the way they have been treated by the current administration. Instead of Obama apologizing to the whole world now we find ourselves in the position that it is necessary for us to now apologize for his actions.

    he asked for a military aid, he got it. He ask for annual financial aid, he got it. He ask for security unbrella protecting Israel, he got it this year even though people here are losing their houses and living in tents in the parks, but he got all the help. What all these helps got us in return? NADA! If he ask to invade Iran for their sake. No way! Tell congress to stop pandering.

    When he visits, it will be an ideal time to arrest this terrorist for crimes against humanity for what the Isrealis are doing to the Palestinians.

    Israel is God's chosen nation and God Himself will protect them. They really don't need the US; it just makes us feel good that they want to remain friends with us. Netanyahu knows Obama means to side with the muslims against Israel - Obama has said that everything done in the past 60 years was wrong, meaning Israel should never have been made a nation –, and he is still trying to remain friends. God has said in the Bible that any nation that befriends Israel will be blessed; and any nation that does not befriend Israel will be cursed. How's that working for you, Obama lovers? Oh, that's right, you don't believe God, just Obama.
