Report: Israeli PM Shouts at Obama's Ambassador – 'Time Has Run Out!'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly shouted “Time has run out!” at U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro, as the two met in Israel earlier this week and discussed the Obama administration’s position on Iran.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Shapiro was in Israel for meetings with Netanyahu, and at some point the PM couldn’t hold his frustration with President Obama in any longer: “Instead of pressuring Iran in an effective way, Obama and his people are pressuring us not to attack the nuclear facilities.” Those present say Netanyahu then said assertively: “Time has run out!”

Shapiro responded by alleging that Netanyahu was “distorting Obama’s position.” Following this, a no-holds-barred shouting match broke out as the fuming Israeli PM let loose on the U.S. ambassador. 

Republican Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) was on the trip as well, and is reported to have watched the episode in “stunned” silence.

Shapiro served on the Obama campaign in 2008, and in that capacity helped shore up Obama’s attempts to portray himself as pro-Israel.
