JERUSALEM (JTA) -- President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are set to meet on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Netanyahu is scheduled to arrive Wednesday in New York for the General Assembly meeting. He told his Cabinet Sunday that he will meet with Obama, as well as other world leaders, upon his arrival.

White House National Security Council spokesman Ben Rhodes confirmed the scheduled meeting to reporters over the weekend. Obama is not scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, according to the White House.

Netanyahu and Abbas are both scheduled to address the General Assembly on Sept. 23, after which Abbas said he will submit a bid for full membership for the state of Palestine in the U.N. Security Council.

    Maybe this will give 0bama another chance to run around yelling "What the f*** was that?!?!" (very presidentially, of course) as he did after the last media-covered meeting with Netanyahu.

    Obie needs to be on his best behavior, Americans are watching this time and, those of us who remember his treatment of Bibi last time, aren't going to watch it happen again. I don't, for one minute, beleive that he will not be meeting with Abbas, even if it's secretivley, he will meet with him. He wouldn't snub his homeboy like that!
  • BlueMax372 MBSVirg... 2011/09/19 20:34:06
    I believe you're right. Besides, we'll have no way of knowing what sort of behind-the-scenes thuggery will be going on between 0v0mit and his fellow muzzies.

    We may not have any way of knowing, but someone will know and someone will let it "slip". There can't be any way he would let this opportunity go by. He needs his "pals" to further his agenda and they will be all over him.

  • BlueMax372 Gooky 2011/09/18 23:45:22

    Obummer is looking for the Jewish vote. I hope he doesn't get it after the way he's disrespected Israel and American Jews.

    Netanyahu will need to sanitize his hands after the meeting.

    I wish we Americans had the kind of stellar political leadership and national security acumen that Israel enjoys.

    We can only wish ................ will our Republic survive for another 14 months?
  • MichaelJ 2011/09/18 18:48:19 (edited)
    I would suggest for the President's and our country's sake to not allow any photos to be taken.
    I hate to be mean but our President standing next to an effective leader is kind of like Barney standing next to Sheriff Taylor.
