Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to yesterday’s criticisms from the White House by suggesting the Obama administration does not have the facts straight on housing developments in East Jerusalem.
Netanyahu said, “I think they [the Obama administration] should be acquainted with the facts first. You know? First of all, these are not settlements. These are neighborhoods of Jerusalem. We have Arab neighborhoods and we have Jewish neighborhoods.”
He added, “It doesn’t make me feel good. I think the important thing is to just get the facts right. I mean start with the facts.”
