Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu trolled Barack Obama on Twitter by posting a video where he scolds Obama for not supporting Israel during his presidency.
Netanyahu is up for re-election on April 9. To rally his base, Netanyahu posted a new campaign ad on Twitter (see below).
The clip was to remind voters that Bibi stands up for Israel, even if it means delivering a humiliating smack-down to the anti-Israel former leader of the free world.
Obama Fumed as Bibi Lectured Him
The video is from a heated 2011 exchange Netanyahu had with Obama, when he rebuked Obama in front of a gaggle of reporters about the ongoing Israel-Palestine border conflict.
In the video excerpt, Obama looks furious as he stares coldly when Netanyahu says: “Israel obviously cannot be asked to negotiate with a government that is backed by the Palestinian version of Al Qaeda.”
Israel Is an Important U.S. Ally
The video also shows former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes — a vocal anti-Israel critic — expressing his shock that Netanyahu had berated the president of the United States in public at the White House.
“I’ve never seen a foreign leader speak to the president like that,” Rhodes said. “And I’ve certainly never seen it happen in the Oval Office.”
It’s no secret that US-Israeli relations were dismal during the Obama years. Obama, who’s pro-Islam, did not support Israel the way former U.S. presidents have.
Israel is a longtime U.S. ally and our only true ally in the Middle East, which is populated by Muslim countries that want to destroy the United States.
Unlike the other countries in the Middle East, Israel and the United States are both Westernized democracies where women are not systematically oppressed and abused.
Moreover, Israel and the U.S. share a common bond with their similar Judeo-Christian traditions.
PM: "In recent weeks, we’ve heard a lot about the rise of forces who want to pull America and Israel apart. So I can tell you one thing. I guarantee you this. They will fail.
Our shared values are too deep. Our shared interests too strong. Our shared destiny too intertwined.

Advice from Israel: Build That Wall
Benjamin Netanyahu has a great relationship with President Trump, and has repeatedly thanked him for supporting Israel.
Many Israelis love Trump and support his policies. Take David Rubin, the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel. Rubin urged the United States to build a wall to protect its borders, saying Israelis are thrilled with their wall.
Rubin pointed out that illegal immigration was slashed to ZERO in 2017 after Israel raised the height of its wall to make it harder to climb.
“Everybody is happy that we don’t have illegal immigration in Israel. Some of the Israeli left were complaining and even accusing the Israeli government of racism, but now, nobody is complaining.”
