JERUSALEM – A member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party slammed as “racist” President Obama’s policies against Jewish construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.
“I think it is racist,” stated Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon. “Can you imagine someone in the U.S. saying Hispanics or blacks or Muslims cannot build in a certain city?”
“What we see now coming from the (Obama) administration – telling Jews to not build in major parts of Jerusalem – is unacceptable,” said Danon.
The Israeli lawmaker was speaking in a radio interview with WND senior reporter Aaron Klein, who hosts an investigative program on New York’s WABC 770 AM.
Danon, the deputy speaker of Israel’s parliament, said most Israelis see Obama as “biased toward the Palestinian side.”
