    Netnyahu hurled three insults at Lord Obama and his aides, which he then needed to deny and apologize for promptly, even before the cock crowed: 1. Announcing the construction of 1600 apartments for Haredi Jews in East Jerusalem, all while VP Biden was visiting and calling for settlement freeze. Netanyahu apologized, and said he didn't know the decision was coming and in any case, the construction will not happen for a couple of years. 2. Calling Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and senior advisor David Axelrod "self-hating Jews" (probably because they are not Likudniks at heart). Heard by too many people, but still Netanyahu denied he said it. 3. Netanyahu's close associate described Obama as "a disaster for Israel". Netanyahu said this does not represent his opinion and he rejects the description. Denial or not, Lord Obama knows the truth.
