Skip to comments.Netanyahu: I thought apology to Biden was sufficient
Posted on 03/13/2010 11:11:17 AM PST by txlurker
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he thought his apology to Joe Biden over the ill-timed announcement of east Jerusalem construction was sufficient and believed the matter was closed.
Speaking to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, Netanyahu said he believed the apology was adequate especially as it was personally coordinated with Biden himself.
The PM's remarks came several hours after he was harshly reprimanded on the phone by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Following the crisis vis-à-vis the US Administration, Netanyahu decided to convene the forum of top seven government ministers Saturday night to discuss the issue.

O really has that foreign policy thing down....
Hillary Rod-ham chewing out this great statesman of a great nation? How revolting.
Oh, Benji, don’t waste your time apologizing to these Israel haters.
Lord, a phone call from Hillary. The poor man certainly has suffered enough now. Yak, yak, screech.
Note to BiBi: Keep up the good work! We just love you over here and wish you were President of the U.S. The bullies are running rampant over here too but we intend to ensure they are out of power soon.
Hillary Rod-ham Clinton’s brother:
Another Pardon, Another Controversy
Hugh Rodham received a contingency fee in connection with a pardon application for Glen Braswell and a fee for work on Carlos Vignali’s commutation application. In 1995, Vignali was convicted of masterminding a scheme to distribute 800 pounds of crack cocaine, worth millions of dollars, from Los Angeles to a narcotics ring in Minneapolis.
He ordered the lash-out because he is politically weak in foreign policy. Even the Hondurans flipped him the bird.
Worse, he is overreacting to small countries. This makes him look even weaker. Shocking, to the liberals, who think they have a superior understanding of things foreign. Remember the reset button?
He understands the American plan very well and is simply letting them know they are not a territory of the US ..Way to go~
Obama / Clinton Diplomacy [or dip-lunacy?]

Biden’s snub to Netanyahu as he arrives 90 minutes late...
Biden scolds Israel over settlement plan...
[Silly fawning infidel]
Why would Israel applogize for doing what is in its own best interest for long term preservation?
Bibi should have hung up the phone.
And then shown Biden the damage done to his middle finger when he hung up the phone.
My glance is directed 2K miles to the east.
And these idiots have the nerve to call W "arrogant".
Isreal was sending a message with the slap to Biden. Not sure if it was to Abbas and the wider Muslim world or to Obama or both. Basically he was saying, we are not dancing to the tune of the US, we’ll do what we have to do.
I hope he slammed it on her ear. The embarrassing foreign policy of this group of ignorant putz' (it's amateur hour) is atrocious. It's quite obvious the VP and the SOS don't talk.
"Netanyahu said he believed the apology was adequate especially as it was personally coordinated with Biden himself".
The PM's remarks came several hours after he was harshly reprimanded on the phone by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
When did she become his boss?
"Following the crisis vis-à-vis the US Administration, Netanyahu decided to convene the forum of top seven government ministers Saturday night to discuss the issue".
Biden, Clinton and the Poseur have NOT ONE friend in the world and thus have made the world infinitely less safe in the process. Our natural allies don't trust us any more (see Japan too) and the tyrants that zer0 loves don't respect him and do whatever they want because they know the impotent one will do nothing. A sorry state of affairs. I can't wait till this guy is a lame duck or impeached.
Bibi apologized for the timing, not the policy.
Well, you got me on that one. Being a stubborn conservative who does listen to reason, my position remains unchanged. No appology necessary.
And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.
We’re in trouble.
I'm with you. Bottom line is Bibi should have told Biden to pound sand, but I don't sit in the big chair...
P*ss on clinton. Bibi should have commented on her thunder thighs and her ugly face.

Come to think of it, it is a disgrace that Hillary Clinton is in the position she holds. The Clintons are far left ideologues who did a great deal of damage to America while “quick on the zipper” Bill was president.
The Clintons sold U.S. technology to Communist China for campaign funds. In my view that makes them traitors. Is it appropriate for this traitor to be Secretary of State?
The Obama Administration is very much in support of the Palestinians in spite of their never ending lethal attacks on Israeli citizens. Does anyone doubt that Obama comes down on the side of the Muslims?
The only foreign leaders that Obama and Hillary have the guts to reprimand are those of our allies.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
BiBi needs to do what BiBi does so well...run his country and protect them regardless of the rest of the worlds opinions. We should be so lucky to have a carbon copy like him for the US....I can really no longer find the words to adequately define BO, he seems to have, is now, and will be continuing his failures to lead according to the peoples will. What words I could say wouldn't be Christian...but I'm just as guilty as those that do cause I think them all to often!!!
We won’t be judged by Hillary’s words and deeds. We will be judged by our own words and deeds. Hillary is in trouble.
Obozo probably ordered her to add in her 2 cents so he could make sure she sullies herself in Israel’s eyes lest she get the idea she might run against him in 2012.
Obozo always has to rub it in and have the last word.
Obama is winging it.
There is no National Security Strategy.
It was due last July. Obama failed to deliver.
The State Dept., Military, CIA, FBI, DHS, and others are running without a clear set of objectives.
And the administration changes their objectives from day to day.
Don’t sweat it, Bibi. Just give Slow Joe something shiny to play with and he’ll forget all about it.
The list, ping
He didn’t have to apologize, but now that he did, I don’t see what else these rats want from him.
What words I could say wouldnt be Christian but Im just as guilty as those that do cause I think them all to often.
I fear that I fall short also. I know that we all do, but I have to acknowledge that I despise this man. It is in fact hard to be a Christian.
Israel is on it’s own. It is shameful that American Jews who are leftists do not support Israel. They are secularists. If Israel is destroyed it will be preferable to them than Obama failing to turn America into a third world nation.
The want him to be a good little Obamabot
This is the first Pres. I can say I do detest all that he is doing and stands for. I have to deal alot with the emotions of anger and hate this man’s actions trigger in me..and it’s not an unhealthy anger either...it is right to be angry for what he is doing and we should not deny that emotion God has given us...after all He has it too!
I’m angry how he is behaving on the international scene. He and Hillary are wrong about Israel..and are playing dangerous games. When our Pres. and Sec. of State are cowtowing to the ME states something is very wrong in Washington...and this with no shame at all.
I don’t care if he or his staff thinks Bo is tired or overwhelmed....and the fact they’re even revealing this shows what dibwads they are...you never show your commanders weaknesses in a time of war...idiots! This makes all Americans look weak now.
It’s his job to appoint people who can assist him but he has no judgement in determining those at all..the price he pays is his own..I have no sympathy for him...he has a choice to do the right things and he’s choosing all that is wrong. That comes with a cost...so I do hope he does suffer...maybe if enough it will turn him to the right way, otherwise he’ll take this country and us down further.
