Bibi’s Apology: Too Little, Too Late?
It was an easy vote-grab. But Benjamin Netanyahu’s pre-election comments that he could never support a two-state solution may have cut him out of the decision-making process. Today he continued walking back his remarks, apologizing to his Arab constituents for racist asides about Arab voting. However, the White House Chief of Staff expressed public support for a separate Palestinian state and defended a hoped-for nuclear deal with Iran that Netanyahu has opposed vehemently. Looks like that special relationship may have crumbled.
