"US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's meddling in internal Israeli decisions regarding the development of our capital Jerusalem is uninvited and unhelpful. In fact it is sheer chutzpah (insolence)," said Deputy Knesset Speaker and Likud MK Danny Danon.

"I cannot remember another time that a senior American official deemed it 'insulting' when a sovereign nation announced urban zoning decisions regarding its primary city. This is yet another in the disturbing series of counter-productive declarations from the Obama Administration. It is a gratuitous and frankly annoying comment.

"Secretary Clinton recently embraced the task of helping solve shipping problems of American food products to our shores, yet condemns our right to build homes for Jews in the city of Jerusalem. Jews living in Jerusalem is why Israel exists as a Jewish state. With all due respect, Madam Secretary, forget the gefilte fish for Passover and support our inalienable rights to the Jewish homeland, Israel,” Danon said.
