Obama to Netanyahu: Jagshemash!
Here’s a tea leaf, and, I’m afraid, a 2006-vintage joke. As an indication of President Obama’s continuing displeasure with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — displeasure that apparently is compelling some within the administration to advocate proposing a comprehensive U.S. Middle East peace plan — Obama will meet with nine world leaders during next week’s big Washington summit on nuclear security. Kazakhstan’s Nursultan Nazarbayev is one of them. Netanyahu, who will attend the summit, is not.
As a consolation measure, informed sources explain, Nazarbayev plans to explain to Netanyahu about the inferior quality of all other nations’ potassium supplies.
