The White House appeared to mock Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on social media Wednesday, employing a cartoon bomb similar to an illustration used by Israel's leader to warn against a nuclear Iran.
The image of the bomb, complete with a red line near the top, is virtually identical to that used by Netanyahu during a 2012 United Nations speech on the dangers of Tehran acquiring such a weapon.
"At this late hour there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs," Netanyahu said in his address at the time. "And that is by placing a clear red line on Iran's nuclear weapons program."
Relations between President Obama and Netanyahu are at an all-time low after the Israeli leader's re-election last month. The White House has accused Netanyahu of doing everything possible to sabotage the Iran talks.
