Akiva   (01.15.13)
Sorry YNet, another failed attempt to discredit Bibi because he doesn't wag his tail and bark at Obama's command. Israel doesn't know what's good for it? How about America doesn't know what it's like to have terrorist nations on your doorstep who are determined to make the region Judenrein? How about America doesn't know what it's like to have your VERY EXISTENCE threatened every day? How about America doesn't know what it's like to only have one place on Earth to live without fear of persecution that's already dangerously too small? Thankfully, most of America DOES know these things, so the real reason Obama didn't even bother getting angry is because he can't get away with it.
2. Do Jewish people see it from the same
African ,   Rabbi   (01.15.13)
perspective as Obama? Does the G-d of Israel see it from the same perspective?
3. Obama's comments
Mark ,   Simi Valley, CA, USA   (01.15.13)
President Obama supposedly said, "Israel does not know what its best interests are." ONLY Israel knows what its best interests are.
The Almighty ,in his infinite wisdon ,intended Israel to be a Light to the nations and for us to be seperated from them with out special dietary laws and way of living .Obamas' threats are as chaff .
5. " PARIAH " ( A RAP)
Yo ,it is my desire to be a pariah ,cos yo can't get higher this could be our funeral pyre don't listen to no liar and don't tire it's good to be a pariah if that's what you desire.
Obama cares more about the future of Israel than Netanyahu .
7. advice from Obama
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.15.13)
Obama the arrogant colonialist racist with an inflated ego knows what's good for the natives he thinks are primitive Look how great his plan to impose the Brotherhood on the "primitive" Egyptians is going. And that was a success compared to his wisdom in Libya, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Mali. Note to self: don't take advice from people with a proven record of failure.
8. There will be NO two state solution...mind
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.15.13)
your own business...master Obumma !
9. With friends like Obama,
Tambour ,   Eilat   (01.15.13)
For the first time yesterday I heard a Fox News commentator refer to Obama as an Anarchist. After Manesh De'Souza's work in his book Obama's America 2016, this is very revealing moving the explanation for Obama's actions from loathing for colonialism, hence the famous anecdote that he sent a Statue of Sir Winston Churchill presented to the White House back to England, to Anarchism .. which actually fits much better explaining Obama's behaviour over the years under Jeremy Wright, in the Senate, the Cairo speech, and shipping national debt after criticising Bush Heavens help us and the world
10. "Israel doesn't know what's good for her"
tiki ,   belgium   (01.15.13)
No, the Amateur does! Because Israel "doesn't 'know what's good for her", she has survived all those who want her demise and will continue to do so.
11. Obama verily does all in his power to isolate Israel
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.15.13)
obama will use every tool and every proxy to isolate the jewish state of israel. obama has insisted on a permanent freeze on building in the jewish neighbourhoods of jerusalem and any part of judeah and samaria; obama has openly insisted on trasforming the 1948 armistice lines into borders; obama has refused to recognise jerusalem as the capital of israel; obama did not lift a finger to prevent the palestinian unga upgrade; obama has done nothing but criticise the jewish state while praising the muslim brotherhood; obama has leaked israel's national security secrets in an attempt to undermine israel; obama has accused israel of committing sabotage and assassination in enemy states. obama has appointed the most anti-israel people to his cabinet. obama let it be known to the europeans that they should put pressure on israel in all ways. obama manipulates the iran issue giving contradictory speeches and lying in all of them. we know full well that obama will do all in his power to isolate israel, even if so doing is contrary to american and western interests.
12. Obama: "Israel doesn't know what's good for it"
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.15.13)
obama's puffed up arrogance knows no bounds. obama should keep in mind that israel is much older than obama the kid.
13. 6, CAPTAIN OBVIOUS, of course it is obvious
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.15.13)
who would deny that obama knows what is best for israel by little emperor obama.
14. "Isolated" Israel
Simon ,   HCMC   (01.15.13)
It is better to be "isolated" than dead. No to second Munich, England and France can forget that some idiots will trust them again as Czechs did!
15. Who needs the USA?
Keren IL-BR ,   Israel   (01.15.13)
Time to rethink the relation USA-Israel. We, as a sovereign nation, dont need the Americans. Let's look for the emerging markets, countries that count politcaly and not decadent economies like the USA. There is an inverse logic here: they need us more than we need them. Let them try to get bases in Egypt or Lebanon.... If the USA wants to indulge from our partnership there should be some rules, like consulting us before appointing crazy people like the actual secretary of defense. Comments like this of Obama also should be punished.
16. You YNET talkbackers...
Eldar ,   Haifa   (01.15.13)
Funny (in a tragic sort of way) reading the hysterical right-wing YNET talkbacking parrots. Doesn't matter who tries to tell us - the US government, our friends in Europe, the American Jewish Community, our own left-wing (those fifth-column traitors!) that our occupation policies are leading to our international isolation - they won't listen. They yell "anti-semites, cowards and traitors"! And they yell louder as we sink deeper. End the occupation, negotiate with Abbas, stop funding settlements, bring the settlers back home to within the Green Line. We'll all be better off for it.
17. A political coward.......
Dan ,   Israel   (01.15.13)
Is someone who is supposed to bend over to the international community and Arab demands. Standing up to them sounds less cowardly in my eyes
18. And the haters are out again
Ferdinand ,   Israel & France   (01.15.13)
So here we go again, every time someone doesn't agree with Likud's policies, the Ynet talkback haters come out in full force. Just in the past day we've seen them attack the French, the British, the Europeans in general, US republicans and US democrats. It's mostly comic that these people are so convinced that the whole free world is wrong and that only only ONLY their party is right. It is considerably less funny that they always use such a racist language to argue their paranoia.
19. LOL SOOOO.. obama knows what's best for Israel?
Bad Assed Jew   (01.15.13)
LOL only if Israel divides itself for guaranteed new Islamic military bases within Israel's own gates as in Gaza and proposed repeatedly by obama...... And only to please obama's handler's, the Saudi's, who're busy financing the rebels in Syria and Iran's financing Assad are eliminating Syrians faster than you can say "Jack Sprat'. What is it with obama's obsession with giving away land that isn't his nation, namely, Israel? Bibi is precisely right, there can be no peace with the two factions of the pals nor can there be a segregated Islamic nation on Israel's land, period. ANNEX BUILD CAPITOL ALL OF 'JERUSALEM. obama has 4 years, Israel is eternal and is eternally Jewish.
20. A pathetic attempt to influence Israeli elections
Zev ,   Israel   (01.15.13)
As Obama brings the U.S. to bankruptcy.
21. Israêl interest?
Jacques VITENBERG ,   France   (01.15.13)
Israêl doesn't know what is good for her! But: AXELROD knows! RAHM Emmanuel knows! Chalom Ahchav knows! And OBAMA just repeat!
22. US/Israel ties
Ian ,   Amsterdam   (01.15.13)
Remember what Bibi tried to do to Obama during the US elections... Its payback time... and 2. I don't think any US commentator, Jewish or not, has any right to say that Israeli's don't understand the World they live in... It is in fact the 'West' that does not understand the Middle East.
23. Obama DOES know what's best for Israel
Devorah   (01.15.13)
and he's doing everything in his power to stop it.
24. Expose Obama lies!
Mike Turner ,   NY, USA   (01.15.13)
Obama wants to humiliate Israelis. Be strong & ignore that fool!
25. Bibi is at least a former member of the Seyarat Metkal
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.15.13)
bibi was at least a member of the special forces, did not smoke pot or snorted coke, or got drunk, or skipped classes. israel does not need a community organiser capatulted to the presidency in the blink of an eye to tell her what is or is not good for her.
26. 1948
Jacques VITENBERG ,   France   (01.15.13)
Ben Gurion heard exactly the same words in 1948 and Sharett, , his foreign affairs minister, the first "chalom ahchav" Excuse me! the first was Chamberlain, after Munich agreement, in 1938
27. Obumma is a coward, not Bibi.
Sabine Mallory ,   Palm Springs   (01.15.13)
28. Obama completely fails to understand the ME and has no idea
Zvi   (01.15.13)
what Israel's best interests are. His statements are arrogant and stupid.
29. Obama is islamist trojan horse
SeeitRight ,   Globe Earth   (01.15.13)
As Gorbi once finished Soviet Union, Hussein Obama blows from inside USA and the Western Civilization. Arab "spring" which Obama so effectively promoted in Lybia, Egypt and Syria smells like nuke winter for the West as a whole. Google Global Caliphate, research what's going on and be prepared - vote BIBI!
30. Israel having Jerusalem as capital isn't our interest?
Ilan   (01.15.13)
What is he smoking?
