White House aide went on CNN this morning to congratulate the people of Israel.
He wouldn’t congratulate PM Benjamin Netanyahu and avoided mentioning his name.
The Weekly Standard reported:
“We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And we’re going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and we’re not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward,”
