During today's show, Sean broke the news to his audience about the details of a conversation President Obama had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which was first reported by Israel's Channel 1.
While Sean received the information from a credible source close to the Prime Minister's office, both the Prime Minister's office and the Obama Administration have since come out denying the conversation ever took place. In fact, the Prime Minister's office parroted the Obama Administration's reaction verbatim, in a statement saying, "We have seen these reports, and neither the reports nor the alleged transcript bear any resemblance to reality. It’s shocking and disappointing that someone would sink to misrepresenting a private conversation between the President and the Prime Minister in fabrications to the Israeli press."
Judge for yourself, via JPupdates.com:
"During the 35-minute conversation on Sunday, the president reportedly demanded that Israel should immediately and unconditionally end the operation.
When Netanyahu asked what Israel would get in return for unilaterally ending the strikes, Obama replied: “I believe Hamas will stop firing rockets – quiet in return for quiet.” To which Netanyahu responded that Hamas has already violated 5 cease-fires and is committed to the destruction of Israel.
“I repeat and expect Israel to stop all of its actions against Hamas in Gaza,” Obama said. He added that despite Netanyahu’s objections the United States trusts Qatar and Turkey’s mediation. “Israel is not in a situation that it can choose its mediators,” the president told his Israeli counterpart.
Netanyahu in response: “Hamas will continue firing rockets on Israel and use their tunnels to attack our people.”
At this point, Obama interrupted the Israeli leader, stating, “the ball is in Israel’s court, and it must end all military activities.”'
