Israel's consul-general in Los Angeles "expresses his deepest regrets for the distortions of [US Chief of Staff Rahm] Emmanuel's views," according to a statement released overnight Wednesday by the consul's office. The statement came in response to reports quoting Emmanuel as saying that the White House was losing patience with both the Israelis and the Palestinians. Emmanuel was said to have made the statement during a meeting with Los Angeles Consul General Jacob Dayan. "During his visit to Los Angeles, Mr. Emanuel reiterated his unflagging commitment to Israel's security and his devotion to the search for Israeli-Palestinian peace," the press release from Dayan's office read. The press release further described the report, which had originally appeared in Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot, as "harmful."
