Netanyahu Pulls Out of Obi One's Nuclear Summit

Deputy Israeli Prime Minister Dan Meridor will stand in for Netanyahu.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled a planned trip to Washington next week for President Barack Obama’s 47-country nuclear security summit conference.

He made the decision after learning Egypt and Turkey intended to raise the issue of Israel’s presumed nuclear arsenal at the conference, a senior government official said on Friday.
Who in the hell would want to be ambushed by Islamists?
"This conference is about nuclear terrorism," Netanyahu told reporters on Wednesday. "And I'm not concerned that anyone will think that Israel is a terrorist regime. Everybody knows a terrorist and rogue regime when they see one, and believe me they see quite a few -- around Israel."
Meanwhile, Liz Cheney had this to say regarding Obi One's relationship with Israel:
She[Liz Cheney] criticized the administration for the "shabby reception" given Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visited Washington recently, which she deemed "disgraceful."

"President Obama is playing a reckless game if he continues down the path of diminishing the United States' ties to Israel," she said, deeming the world safer when there is "no daylight" between the two countries.
The Guardian is now calling Netanyahu's no show a victory for Arab pressures
