Obama was on the phone with Isreali Prime Minister when this CBS photo was taken.

Fox Nation reported it as a fact – Obama Insults Israel With This Photo
Unless the President is talking to the Prime Minister via “picture-phone”, do you think Benjamin Netanyahu is insulted by Obama’s posture?
Hasn’t Matt Drudge come out of the Closet yet? …Been in there far too long!
And CBS! Let’s not forget that “Liberal Media Giant”! Here’s Howard Arenstein:
Israeli TV newscasters Tuesday night interpreted a photo taken Monday in the Oval Office of President Obama talking on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “insult” to Israel.
They saw the incident as somewhat akin to an incident last year, when the Iraqi reporter threw a shoe at President Bush in Baghdad.
It is considered an insult in the Arab world to show the sole of your shoe to someone. It is not a Jewish custom necessarily, but Israel feels enough a part of the Middle East after 60 years to be insulted too.
Was there a subliminal message intended from the White House to Netanyahu in Jerusalem, who is publicly resisting attempts by Mr. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to force Israel to stop any kind of settlement activity in occupied territories once and forever?
Whether or not it is true, it shows the mood in Israel. They feel cornered. The reactions out of Israel reflect that feeling.
Arenstein just stereotyped the entire Isreali nation with an Arab custom and that dude gets to keep his freaking job?!
Check out Arenstein’s Twitter from a few hours ago…
Some are linking Holocaust shooting with abortion doctor killing. They say Black president is flushing out extremists?
If I had my guess – I’d say Arenstein is a racist pig and CBS is a piece of shit news-outlet.
