As the meeting was about to end, Obama said: “You know, people often read me wrong, but I come from Chicago. I know how to deal with tough rivals.”
Then Netanyahu said that Obama did something else “that deeply shocked me. The message was meant to strike fear in me.”
Netanyahu does not say what Obama said or did to threaten him, but in a recently-published biography of the prime minister called Cracking the Netanyahu Code, journalist Mazal Mualem said that Obama gestured as though he was slitting someone’s throat while saying he knows how to deal with Netanyahu.
