The Definition of ‘Chutzpah’
As we noted in our post below, Reuters continues to suggest that Obama “endorsed” Palestinian demands that Israel agree to surrender land thus returning the country to the 1949 Armistice Lines (“1967 borders”). We noted that Obama had said nothing of the kind.
Defining the word “chutzpah”, Reuters correspondent Matt Spetalnick, who has led the false charge that Obama endorsed Palestinian demands on borders, now wants readers to believe it was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who misconstrued Obama’s position:
Gee, perhaps Netanyahu got that notion reading Reuters’ “analysis” of Obama’s speech.
Obama chided those who he said had “misrepresented” his position, a slap at Netanyahu, who had seized on the notion that he was being asked to return to 1967 lines while ignoring the president’s stipulation there would be land exchanges.
Memo to Matt: when you hit bottom, quit digging.
