World Leaders? Sarkozy, Obama on Netanyahu

Sir, - The remarks made by French President Nicolas Sarkozy concerning Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as well as the response of Pres. Barak Obama were both demeaning and insulting to Netanyahu and the State of Israel.

These intemperate statements add a most unwelcome ingredient to the already fragile negotiations wherein all three gentlemen must deal with critical issues confronting Israel and the entire western world.

If there was any proof lacking about the less than admirable stature of some of the world's major leaders, we now clearly have it in black and white.
