Rioting continues in Jerusalem; a crisis in US-Israel relations?


While rioting continues in Jerusalem and Hamas calls for another intifada—oh brother—US President Obama is on his heels, saying there is “no crisis” in the US-Israel relationship:

United States President Barack Obama said Thursday that there was ‘no crisis’ in ties with Israel, despite a high-profile diplomatic feud between the allies over the Netanyahu administration’s plans to build Jewish homes in east Jerusalem.

“Israel’s one of our closest allies, and we and the Israeli people have a special bond that’s not going to go away,” Obama said in an interview on Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier.

“But friends are going to disagree sometimes,” Obama said.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu has his own problems.
