Obama Asks Netanyahu for 'A Breather' From Iran Criticism

President Obama has asked Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to "take a breather" from his "clamorous criticism" of an interim deal with Iran over its nuclear program while the United States starts talks on a comprehensive pact, the Washington Post reported.

Obama and Netanyahu spoke on the phone Sunday, in a conversation meant to calm the prime minister's concerns about the "first stage" deal between Tehran and the P5+1 countries — the permanent five members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.

"A wild card in these negotiations is Israel," Post columnist David Ignatius wrote Wednesday about the next stage of the talks with Iran.

"Obama has asked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take a breather from his clamorous criticism and send to Washington a team that can explore with U.S. officials a sound end-state strategy. Perhaps the United States and Israel need a back channel, outside the bombastic pressure campaign by Israeli advocates."

After weeks of Israeli officials publicly condemning the deal, Netanyahu and Obama have agreed to send an Israeli delegation to Washington to discuss strategy for a permanent agreement with the Obama administration, in a clear shift to backroom diplomacy, the Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.

Last Sunday’s accord with Iran is a six-month agreement with an option to extend, meant to limit the Iranian nuclear program as the P5+1 try to hammer out a comprehensive accord with Iran. In return, Iran received some sanctions relief.

"Now that the Obama administration has won its breakthrough first-step nuclear deal with Iran, officials are planning strategy for the decisive second round that, over the next six months, will seek a broader and tougher comprehensive agreement," Ignatius wrote.

"This 'end state' negotiation, as officials describe it, promises to be more difficult because the United States and its negotiating partners will seek to dismantle parts of the Iranian program, rather than simply freeze them. Another complication is that negotiators will be fending off even more brickbats from hard-liners in Israel, Congress and Tehran.

"If the interim deal was reached largely in secret, through a back channel provided by Oman, this one will have to be negotiated in the diplomatic equivalent of a circus ring, with hoots and catcalls from bystanders."

Obama repeatedly stabs Netanyahu in the back, and now, expects a break?! Netanyahu needs to give back to Obama with both barrels!  O ignores who our real ally is in favor of his wannabe ally, or so he thinks.

Obama is a spoiled child who expects the whole world to do his bidding.

Good thing Netanyahu is a MAN, who will most likely both laugh at, and ignore the punk.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Good thing for BiBi that he isn't a US citizen, the revenue service would be knocking on his door right now.
