The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: "I cannot stand him. He is a liar." According to the report, Obama replied: "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"Too many Israelis and Jews, worldwide, like to think that well-written speeches and well-practiced smiles mean that we have friends and allies in high places like Washington DC and Paris.

It's all an act.
