Panetta loses his cool, calls Israel 'ingrates'

Didi Remez posted the picture above on Twitpic. It's from today's Maariv, a Hebrew newspaper that does not have an English-language website. For the Hebrew-impaired, the headline reads "Panetta: Israel is an ingrate." You can find the article online here (link in Hebrew), and here's a Google translation.
Meetings of the American Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta with Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Barak and President Shimon Peres were indeed positive atmosphere, but in private conversations, he expressed frustration at the lack of confidence expressed by Netanyahu and Barak, the American commitment to stop the Iranian nuclear program. An Israeli source said the Americans believe it is a kind of "ingratitude" and "pigs" in light of unwavering U.S. support for Israel's security.
There is indeed 'unwavering US support' for Israel's security. The problem is that it's only in Congress and not in the White House. The White House was dragged kicking and screaming into imposing sanctions (recall how many 'national security' outs Congress put in the bill so that Obama wouldn't veto it and Obama still wasn't satisfied) and is now trying to jump onto the moving horse in a bid to use it as reelection propaganda.

I'd like to go back and show you a video of a Democratic Senator - New Jersey's Robert Menendez - expressing frustration with the Obama administration's lack of support for sanctions.

Let's go to the videotape.

And you wonder why we don't trust the Obama administration here? This video ought to be played over and over and over again to anyone who wonders why we don't regard the Obama administration as being 'the most pro-Israel evah.' Panetta was here trying to sell a lie. And Israel isn't buying.

I'm just trying to comprehend how these Dems can direct $millions and $billions of green goo slushfunding to Israeli companies and anyone can imagine that there would be no quid pro quo requirements for submission involved? The WH says "don't overplay your hand" by, what, not letting yourselves be nuked by Iran or overrun by the Muslim Bros, al Qaeda, al Shabab, etc that these same Dems have put into power in every direction on Israel's borders?

When President Peres goes to California for public Gaia spectacles, where he provides window dressing that Israel likes Obama and his California cronies, while helping them impose inadequate electric power generation schemes.

If Israel doesn't trust them, then Israel should walk away from the non-military govt $billions of Gaia grants. I'm not talking about the normal technology investment and development success that our two countries have had by teaming up, I'm talking about the possibly lawless $billions in the public trough energy destruction schemes that have infuriated Americans... because that mountain of money makes them think they can push you into impossible situations.

Here's the other side of the Gaia funding wedge... seriously, if it is science, then we have in every other field been taught that it has to be able to be replicated by other scientists, the ground truth has to match the modeled results, etc. etc. These people have cooked some data, apparently deleted some raw data, withheld data and algorithms from others who would re-run it for replication... The actual observed data does NOT track with their projections, and yet wholesale shut downs of industry and energy production around the world are underway based on counter-proven algorithms.

Americans want clean air... we like LA with no brown smog line on the horizon. But these people are warping the scientific method and using the environment as a political club to force submission. Don't take their $money in this Gaia field... I'm just tellin' you! Nothing is free with these people and your compliance regarding their Muslim Bros, Iran, al Qaeda, al Shabab advocacy WILL (and apparently is right now) be required. Or they'll say you are an ingrate. Wake up, Israel! Disassociate from these Democrats!

...and Israel should be grateful for what exactly?? Being on the receiving end of an Obama-energised anti-semitic and anti-Israel sentiment, worldwide? Being on the receiving end of islamic terrorist murders thanks to Obama's appeasment of the nazi regime in Iran? Being on the recieving end of Obama's pandering to Mozlem Brotherhood and its intentions to destroy Israel?? etc etc!!
