MKs from Israel’s largest parties were quick to respond Wednesday to US President Barack Obama’s statements a day earlier in which Obama criticized building in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Har Homa and Pisgat Ze’ev. But while MKs agreed that US-Israel relations were on shaky ground, Kadima and Likud MKs were divided as to where to place the blame for the renewed tension.

“President Obama proves time and time again the extent to which he is cut off from all reality in the Middle East. During his visit to China, he attacked our building in Gilo, and yesterday in Jakarta he attacked the building in Pisgat Ze’ev and Har Homa,” complained MK Danny Danon (Likud).
