Merkel squirms during Netanyahu’s love song to ‘special relationship’

I stumbled across this little gem of a video last night. Merkel’s expression is priceless, as Netanyahu offers this lovesong:

I want to thank you for your warm reception to me… I know and I heard it again yesterday an today how important to you is the relationship between Israel and Germany. You said, it’s not just another relationship, it’s a special relationship, and it’s deeply felt that you deeply feel it, and I appreciate it greatly. I appreciate the time and energy that you’re devoting to strengthening this relationship. And I want to take this opportunity to make it absolutely clear that I have no doubt whatsoever about the depth of your commitment to Israel’s security and to the well-being of the Jewish state.

 New York Times:

Asked whether Israel had “lost Europe,” Mr. Netanyahu said that was not the case, but he acknowledged, “There is obviously a difference of view in Europe on the issue of the settlements.”

Ms. Merkel concurred. “On the question of settlements, we agreed that we do not agree,” she said.

…….

Any expectations that Mr. Netanyahu would try to defuse the situation or at least play it down during his visit to Berlin were dashed Thursday when he brushed aside criticism.

Referring to the “special relationship” between the two countries, Mr. Netanyahu said to Ms. Merkel, “I want to take this opportunity to make it absolutely clear that I have no doubt whatsoever about the depth of your commitment to Israel’s security and to the well-being of the Jewish state.”

If he expands on that, it could become something akin to the Edgar Wallace’ Plot Wheel, Bibi potboiler edition. At any rate, he… Read more »

Time for Germans to throw Merkel out. When will the guilt stop???? BTW, Merkel can feel guilty for ever but she must NOT make us Palestinians pay for her guilt.

“I want to take this opportunity to make it absolutely clear that I have no doubt whatsoever about the depth of your commitment to Israel’s security and to the well-being of the Jewish state.” to which he should have added “including Judea and Samaria in the Land of Israel which has existed for four thousand years”

It’s not what the gentiles say, but what the Jews (sorry, Israelis) do, that matters. ditto facial expressions. Until EU does more than talk, it is all somewhat less than a hill of beans. Disagree on the settlements issue? Disagree as in “talk”? And what “issue”? Whether they are illegal? Whether they should all be torn down? Whether they should — from here on out — not be augmented? “Issue”? Whether they should be talked… Read more »

I see disgust in her facial expressions.

She is thinking she would rather be anywhere besides listening to this lying toad,s patronising claptrap.
