U.S. Pressuring Israel at Highest Levels Kerry Called Netanyahu - Not Israeli Envoy Oren - to Protest West Bank Outposts

American source tells Haaretz that while its report earlier this week of such a conversation was true, the 'high-ranking' recipient of Kerry's disapproval was none other than Israel's PM; Kerry now in Jerusalem for talks with Netanyahu, Livni on peace process.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last Thursday to voice protest at Israel's plan to legalize four West Bank outposts slated for demolition, a senior U.S. official told Haaretz.
