Oops! And the truth is out.

Sarkozy calls Netanyahu ‘liar’

Ynetnews reports:

French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly told US PresidentBarack Obama that he could not “stand” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that he thinks the Israeli premier “is a liar.”

According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCOdespite Washington’s strong objection to the move.

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: “I cannot stand him. He is a liar.” According to the report, Obama replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

The remark was naturally meant to be said in confidence, but the two leaders’ microphones were accidently left on, making the would-be private comment embarrassingly public.

The communication faux pas went unnoticed for several minutes, during which the conversation between the two heads of state – which quickly reverted to other matters – was all but open to members the press, who were still in possession of headsets provided by the Elysée for the sake of simultaneous translation during the G20 press conference.

“By the time the (media) services at the Elysée realize it, it was on for at least three minutes,” one journalist told the website. Still, he said that reporters “did not have a chance to take advantage of this fluke.”

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.

A member of the media confirmed Monday that “there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue.”

Comment:

Oops, it hurts when the truth gets out. How embarrassing, but also very revealing of what Sarkozy and Obama really thinks about Bibi and the Jewish state. They will both turn their back on Israel with the rest of the world. The front they are keeping will vanish. I am sure that the enemies of Israel are enjoying this little slip up.

Thanks to Jackie for the link.

  1. solana’s slip-up (about sharon) and now this….it’s not hard to see the consensus about israel and it’s leadership among most all the world leaders-open mic or not-their actions are duplicitous at best and evil at worst. some want israel to do the dirty work with iran all the while kicking israel in the teeth. soon-sooner rather than later-God Himself will step in wonderfully for israel—-the world will find out—-it is fighting God.
