‘A New Low’
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
That’s how CBS described U.S-Israeli relations after a senior Obama administration official made a vulgar, disparaging remark that was leaked to the press about the Prime Minister of America’s strongest ally, Israel.
House Speaker John Boehner said, “When the President discusses Israel and Iran, it is sometimes hard to tell who he thinks is America’s friend and who he thinks is America’s enemy… He either condones the profanity and disrespect used by the most senior members of his administration, or he does not,” Boehner said, “It is time for him to get his house in order and tell the people that can’t muster professionalism that it is time to move on.”
Prime Minister Benjamine Netanyahu responded by taking the high road, stating, “Despite the attacks, I will continue to defend our country.”
