BREAKING NEWS: PM Netanyahu Heading Back Home

5:00PM IL: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has decided to cut his diplomatic mission in North America short, and following a meeting with Canada’s prime minister, he will head back home, opting to cancel a planned meeting in the White House with President Barak Obama.

Due to the naval commando operation involving the Gaza flotilla, which has elicited an international diplomatic outcry against Israel, the prime minister has decided to respond positively to calls from senior administration officials to return to Israel, even at the expense of cancelling the White House meeting.

  1. First place he should visit when back is the Kosel, to Daven that Hashem should give him the wisdom to resolve the situation.

  2. The Prime Minister should be home now. The left-wing, peace loving majority in Israel needs to hear the TRUTH that humanitarian aid is armaments, violence and PR to demean and delegitimatize the Jewish State. Broadcast on every radio/television station and in all the papers (Haaeretz) also what the “Peace Mission” was all about.
    Now Obama has a chance to give a statement in defense of Israel, its Middle East friend.

  3. should not have left for canada in the first place. but, ok, his place is in israel at the moment, besides, what would he really say to obama??
