BILL CLINTON MUST NOT RECOGNIZE THIS BIBI:

Netanyahu Rebuffs Clinton Over Construction (JAY SOLOMON, 3/23/10, WSJ)

Mrs. Clinton took the dais first Monday and told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that the future of Israel's stability very much depended on Israel's government establishing the conditions for successful negotiations with the Palestinians, specifically a cessation of building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Mr. Netanyahu followed in an evening speech by telling Aipac's annual policy conference that building in East Jerusalem was his government's sovereign right and that Israel could ultimately only depend on itself to ensure its security.

"The future of the Jewish state can never depend on the goodwill of even the greatest of men. Israel must always reserve the right to defend itself," Mr. Netanyahu told the conference. He added: "The Jewish people were building Jerusalem 3,000 years ago and the Jewish people are building Jerusalem today. Jerusalem is not a settlement. It is our capital."


It was uncomfortable watching President Clinton dominate Mr. Netanyahu at Wye River, kind of like a prison shower scene. Now the Israeli PM is returning the favor to this inept Administration.
