From Daily Mail:
The French Minister Laurent Fabius has a message about Iraq for Mr. Obama: Get back to the White House and do something.
“I know it is a holiday period in our Western countries,” Fabius told a radio interviewer Tuesday in France, “but when people are dying, you must come back from vacation.”
Obama is more preoccupied with vacationing with his family in Martha’s Vineyard, than to worry about the crisis happening in the world, but says he will come back to Washington this weekend before returning for more golf on Tuesday, according to Daily Mail.
Other nations such as Britain and France have backed Israel with personnel and supplies, according to Daily Mail.
So far, Obama has done little to help with the emergencies in the East, but has had some humanitarian food drops delivered.

Through all of this, Obama stays committed to his vacation. The timing just couldn’t be worse.
“Even presidents need down time, and Obama can handle his commander-in-chief duties wherever he is,” Washington Post writer Dana Milbank wrote on Monday.
“But his decision to proceed with his getaway just 36 hours after announcing the military action in Iraq risks fueling the impression that he is detached as the world burns.”
