Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to yesterday’sÂ criticismsfrom 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.”
Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein blasted the West for criticizing Israel for building homes in Jerusalem when there are more pressing security issues, in a meeting with Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz in Vienna Thursday.
Edelstein slammed Western leaders’ “Pavolovian reaction” to the anticipated construction of 2,700 homes in the southeastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat Hamatos, which was planned two years ago,Â but Peace Now released a report on the topic Wednesday.
“It’s too bad that while the Islamic State is slaughtering, murdering and threatening the West, everyone is interested in a few homes being built in Jerusalem,”Â he stated.
