Likud’s Feiglin lashes out at Obama speech
Likud MK Moshe Feiglin, one of the most hawkish members of the prime minister’s party, lashes out at Obama on Friday, saying that the US president’s speech in Jerusalem Thursday contained “a lot of filth in the middle.”
In an interview with Channel 10 News, Feiglin praises the parts of Obama’s address that noted Israel’s history and the Jewish people’s historic connection to the land, but slammed the president’s urging for peace.
“When Obama talked about forcing us to make peace, all I could think about was baby Adele, who was injured by stone-throwing near Ariel last week.”
