House Republican and fiery Tea Party freshman Rep. Allen West (Fla.) compared President Obama unfavorably to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday.

Allen West tweeted:

Listening to Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu right now. Hopefully our own President is listening. He can hear what a real leader sounds like

Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Friday about the request for statehood made Friday by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to the U.N. Security Council. The request was made despite the Obama administration’s veto threat.

The White House has warned that a U.N. declaration of statehood would undermine the administration’s efforts to facilitate direct peace negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel.

“The Palestinians want a state without peace,” Netanyahu said in his speech.
