According to Haaretz, an Israeli newspapers that likes to play whack-a- mole with its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, when Israel’s naughty Netanyahu arrives for official visits to Washington he stays at the Blair House – the big dog’s digs across from the White House – to which he brings along “bag’s and suitcases full of dirty personal laundry” from Israel.
US taxpayers foot the bill, according to a story that first surfaced in the Washington Post. The clothes are then “cleaned for the prime minister free of charge by the U.S. staff,” and paid for with American taxpayer dollars, Haaretz says.
The Blair House offers free laundry services to all its guests, assuming most foreign heads of state use the complimentary service in a reasonable manner; basically taking care of the unmentionables they and their families wear during their brief visit.
“The Netanyahus are the only ones who bring actual suitcases of dirty laundry for us to clean,” one U.S. official told the WP in its story. “After multiple trips, it became clear this was intentional.”
American officials are reportedly perplexed. What kind of weasel brings his filthy laundry with him when he travels across the world? Could be the lord of sleaze already has so much Palestinian plunder piled up in Israel there is no more room to store all the weapons Israel will soon be selling to their new Arab buddies.
One of the prognosticators examining the issue mused that the First Lady kept demanding for something to do until hubby arranged for her to fill a few a shifts at the basement tub n’ suds. The Israelis claim they have been reporting the story for years without garnering much attention until today.
It is understandable why the UAE and Bahrain is looking for new friends with guns. They wish to survive the growing hostility of their lusting neighbors It is harder to understand Netanyahu and Trump’s explanation that their trip-wire treaty with the both wildly rich and pathetically weak Arab ministates is about peace rather than safe naval harbors and deeper Israeli penetration into Arabs lands.
The honest reason America cares is that paying weaklings for acceptance and friendship is cheaper than preventing Iran and its growing band of proxies from swallowing them up. The US has to to have deep water Navy bases where American warships can find the safe harbors it needs to operate effectively in the Middle East.
The influential, right-wing Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported the treaties of sort “delinks the resolution of Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians and the creation of an independent Palestinian state from the broader question of its acceptance by the rest of the Arab world.” In other words, screw the Palestinians, they had their chance. Native Americans intuitively understand.
The overarching reality is that the rest of the Arab world, with bigger and better guns and more and more Russian and Chinese arms transfers, aren’t buying the joint US-Israel treaty with two micro-states that can’t survive without big friends.
Netanyahu’s laundry is likely to survive, but his ridiculous “peace” treaty was doomed from the start.
