Christie apologized for the gaffe.
Not long after his speech, Christie met with Adelson privately in the casino moguls office in the Venetian hotel and casino, which hosted the RJC meeting.
The source told POLITICO that Christie clarified in the strongest terms possible that his remarks today were not meant to be a statement of policy.
Instead, the source said, Christie made clear that he misspoke when he referred to the occupied territories. And he conveyed that he is an unwavering friend and committed supporter of Israel, and was sorry for any confusion that came across as a result of the misstatement.
Adelson accepted Christies explanation, the source said.
Before the meeting, Adelson ally Morton Klein, president of the hawkish Zionist Organization of America, had confronted Christie about his use of the term, telling POLITICO he explained to the New Jersey governor that at minimum you should call it disputed territories.

Chris....Take a walk on the boardwalk. And keep walking.
Yes, most Democrats feel that way. What’s new?
What is a “gaffe”?
Inadvertently saying what you really think.
And now the few Jews who don’t vote democRAT will forgive him and vote for the fat turd RINO.
The only ones “occupying” Judea and Samaria are the Arabs who don’t belong there. Muslims occupied Israel for 1,400 years before it was liberated. There is no such thing as a Palestinian. There are 22 existing Arab states and one more is certainly not needed in any case.
They were occupied territories from 1948-1967.
I remember a documentary about constructing the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas years ago - Adelson acted like a complete a-hole, wanting everyone to kiss his ring. Now the pubbies are lining up for his moolah. Makes me sick.
This guy ain't ready for prime time. He sure doesn't know what's going on....bridge lanes or "occupied territory".
His Fatty Arbuckle persona, his tough-guy facade coupled with earnest boyish-charm can only take him so far.....and the bloom is fast coming off the rose when he opens his mouth.
I just built a Donut Shack at the end of the Boardwalk. Watch out for that last step though. ;-)
In his case a Fraudian slip.
If we elect this buffoon Christie, what will the change be in domestic and foreign policy? Has he demonstrated any leadership or has he been running for office, like Obama has, during his entire two terms?
