Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s characterization of US criticism of new Israeli housing plans in east Jerusalem as being antithetical to American values was a case of “chutzpa” and “an extreme perversion of the truth,” according to J Street.

In a statement released on Monday, the avowedly left-wing American Jewish lobby, which has pressured the Obama administration to do more to advance the creation of a Palestinian state, called on the premier to retract the statement.
