Obama and Netanyahu in NYC on different days
"President Obama decided not to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York."
Yep, but he said other things, too
On U.S.-Israeli relations, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "set the record straight — he said, our two countries have 'exactly the same policy' (and) 'our security cooperation is unprecedented.'"
Caught on tape!
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Says she was misquoted and "didn’t say" that the Israeli ambassador said "what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel."
Obama did mention Israeli fear about rockets
"This president went before the United Nations and castigated Israel for building settlements. He said nothing about thousands of rockets being rained in on Israel from the Gaza Strip."
Wasserman Schultz was talking about Hamas' victory in an election -- not its birth
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz "has blamed the Republicans for the creation of Hamas."
Did West mean that the U.S. blew off meeting with Israel or blew off Israel's solutions?
The U.S. "had the opportunity with Israel coming and talking to us about improving our security screening procedures, and we turned them down."
