”French President Nicolas Sarkozy branded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "a liar" in a private conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama that was accidentally broadcast to journalists during last week's G20 summit in Cannes.
"I cannot bear Netanyahu, he's a liar," Sarkozy told Obama, unaware that the microphones in their meeting room had been switched on, enabling reporters in a separate location to listen in to a simultaneous translation.
"You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you," Obama replied, according to the French interpreter.”

thank you mr. obama &

mr. sarkozy

for revealing to us your humanity

in denouncing the insanity of

mr. netanyahu,

even if it cost you both major points in the






it was quite refreshing to hear that even the two of


are fed up with his


if only you would speak more like this

when unaware that the microphones were on

so that the world would get more of a sense

of what is really going on,

rather than what is tossed down the pike &

manufactured by the american & israeli media,


an even better reality would be

if the both of you & your buddies could

just tell these things to the american people, the israeli


and the rest of the world,

flat out,

without being scared that you’d be out of a job,


letting the cards fall where they may,

in hopes of a better chance at peace,

as opposed to netanyahu’s mission.
