JERUSALEM (VINnews) — In the wake of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s initial meeting in the US with Tesla founder Elon Musk, former deputy foreign minister and former ambassador to the US Danny Ayalon sharply criticized Netanyahu on Israeli radio.

Ayalon said that “This is not a regular visit, this is an embarrassing visit. Embarrassing for the prime minister, who has to travel all this way to meet a businessman. Normally it is businessmen who come to visit the prime minister.

“Secondly, he contradicted himself. He comes to Musk, this is the best opportunity to explain Israel, so why does he instead explain himself politically? Its very embarrassing. He said that ‘I have a majority to pass any law I want’ and that itself explains why he needs the supervision of the courts.

“You know what will reverberate the most in Washington? When he called Musk the ‘unofficial president of the US’. That was a slap in the face, a stab in the eye of Biden. This is not the Netanyahu I know, this is a loss of control, spinning out. He is also sending strange messages which are later reworded by the Likud. Maybe he intends to confuse everyone, I don’t know but it looks bad and doesn’t serve Israel, “Ayalon added.

With reference to the expected meeting with Biden at the UN general assembly, Ayalon said that “For the Americans, this meeting is almost pointless. One of the reasons the Americans give for why Biden hasn’t met Netanyahu up to now is because he says Netanyahu’s lost control. We see that Netanyahu doesn’t intervene when[his coalition] humiliates the US. Everything Netanyahu does is in accordance with what he is told in the cabinet.

“Biden is also not at his best but he’s still focused. I think that Biden just because he is a true lover of Israel,  he calls himself Zionist, that is why he can allow himself to behave to Netanyahu as he has. Obama wouldn’t have dared to do this because Obama was suspected of being hostile to Israel.

“What else is a problem? For Israel, when the meeting is in New York, the attention of the president is not on the meetings. He has 50 meetings there. Instead of talking about Iran, Hezbollah and maybe Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu will hear a lecture on what is a Western-style liberal democracy,” Ayalon added.

Biden still hasn’t invited Netanyahu for a visit, he did invite the commie president of brazil who then went and signed up with china. Joe has been siding with the pali terror regime since entering office, and has been stabbing Israel in the back too.

Bibi is a long-game chess player. He makes what appear to be baffling moves, then 10 years later there is a consensus of their brilliance.

Ayalon is deranged if he thinks Biden supports Israel. I’m no longer a fan of Bibi, but I think he was correct to meet with Musk and belittle Biden who treats him like dirt. Musk is very powerful, he is not just a businessman as Ayalon says. It would have been stupid of Bibi to talk politics at the Musk meeting.

How does this genius expect Bibi to visit the Tesla factory without traveling to it?
I know Musk is rich, but relocating the factory to farshtinkeneh NYC just so the Prime Minister can see it seems a bit wasteful.

What a foolish article! Bibi is a polished diplomat and leader. Biden is a known anti- Israel Menuval; 40 years ago he had a screaming match with Menachem Begin A’H.

Well, really this is to be expected. Sometimes Republican leaders like Bibi do things that might upset the leader of the other party.

Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill.
