‘There are those among us who are trying to instigate strife between Israel and the US… You will not get away with it’
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to critics Thursday saying, “There are those among us who are trying to instigate strife between Israel and the US,” adding they would “not get away with it.”
The Prime Minister made the statements at a cornerstone-laying event for a hospital in Ashdod.
“The alliance between the countries is strong and cooperation exists in all fields, especially when it comes to security, there cooperation is deep, broad and fundamental,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu’s comments came a day after former Israeli Prime Minster Ehud Olmert made provocative remarks at a meeting with New York Jewish leaders. “Following what Netanyahu did in the last few months, the question arises of whether or not our prime minister has a friend in the White House,” he said.
