    Obama And BB

    Hello, I am doing a work in the university about the relationship between USA and Israel.
    This sentence (from the news of today its important to me):

    To White House officials, it was a show of respect to make time for Mr. Netanyahu on that day back in March 2010. But Mr. Netanyahu did not see it that way. He felt squeezed in, not accorded the rituals of such a visit. No photographers were invited to record the moment. “That wasn’t a good way to treat me,” he complained to an American afterward.

    Its very important to me to understand the meaning: Is the meaning that the meeting shows respect by giving time to BB and they do it because what happened in 2010(bad event to Israel from BB's side)?
    Thank you.

    If this is for course work, we can't do it for you.

    I am not getting grade for the sentence - be sure.

    Just want to understand what this specific sentence means:
    To White House officials, it was a show of respect to make time for Mr. Netanyahu on that day back in March 2010

    Re: Obama And BB

    The meeting showed respect by Obama giving time to BB. (according to the US)
    Obama did it to show respect to BB. (according to the US)
    The whole event was the bad event to Israel. (according to Israel).

    I was assuming you knew your history better than I do. Do you know what happened in March 2010 between Israel and US - the 'meeting'? If not, you can find out - you might understand the meaning from that.

    Re: Obama And BB

    Just from a native side: how do you the translate this:
    "to make time for Mr. Netanyahu on that day back in March 2010".


    How do you see the words "that day back in March 2010". Don't you feel a negative connotation?
    This is my last question.
    Thanks.
