OBAMA TURNS DOWN NETANYAHU MEETING REQUEST….NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON JEWISH AFFAIRS RESPONDS
NCJA Calls on Obama to Meet with Netanyahu
For Immediate Release
September 11, 2012 — On the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America, the National Conference on Jewish Affairs (NCJA) has condemned President Obama’s shocking decision to decline Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to meet in New York at the end of September during a U.N. conference.
It is NCJA’s understanding that Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office requested the meeting, and said that Netanyahu was even willing to travel to Washington, D.C. for such a meeting.
NCJA calls on President Obama to reverse this decision and to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu as requested. NCJA states:
“This latest decision is a new low in Obama’s treatment of Israel and Prime Minister Netanyau. Given the situation in Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East, the violence against an American Embassy in Libya, the assault on the American Embassy in Cairo and the burning of the American flag there today, and the rise of radical Islamists throughout the Middle East, a meeting with the leader of Israel, America’s best friend and ally in the region, is not only desirable but a necessity for American national security as well as that of the Jewish State.”
