Hillary Clinton Slammed “Cocky Israel” In Email
Hillary complained about “cocky Israel” in an email released by the State Department.
Israel National News reported:
Then secretary of state accused Israel of ‘always’ sounding ‘cocky’ during a feud between Obama Administration and Israel over construction.
Hillary Clinton accused the Jewish state of “always” sounding “cocky” during a major 2010 feud between the Obama Administration and Israel over Jerusalem construction, according to an email she sent to an aide.
Clinton was secretary of state at the time.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that the email had been “recently disclosed” and featured a screenshot of it.
A week before the email – which is dated March 22, 2010 – she had scolded Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a 43-minute phone call, after an Israeli announcement that 1,600 new housing units were being built in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood in Jerusalem. The announcement came just as Vice President Joe Biden was visiting Israel.
