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~

[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.
