Founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Marvin Hier has called on President Obama to “name, apologize for, and repudiate” his senior official who was too chickenshit to go on the record calling Prime Minister Netanyahu Chickenshit, The Algemeiner reported.
Rabbi Hier told the Algemeiner: “It is rather ironic that a senior American official is prepared to curse his friends, yet when it comes to the mortal enemies of the United States – as the Iranians discovered during the recent nuclear negotiation – praise is heaped on them.”
Jeffrey Goldberg quoted in The Atlantic an anonymous senior Obama administration official who told him, “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit.”
The same official also told Goldberg: “The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars. The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states. The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat.”
