The entire spat with the White House over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation to speak to Congress was entirely manufactured by the White House.
The truth about the incident, in which the White House complained that it was terribly wrong for Netanyahu to accept House Speaker John Boehner’s (R., Ohio) invitation without first notifying the administration, was made evident by a correction added to a New York Times article that greatly changed the timeline of events that effected the situation.
Here’s the correction, added on Jan. 30, a day after the article was published:
Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.
Is Obama an anti-Semite? I don’t know, but it is a cinch he has trouble getting along with Conservative politicians like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and I think it is logical to suspect the fact Netanyahu is a Jew does not help.
