US still ‘reassessing’ diplomatic attitude to Israel

No letdown from the Obama administration as Netanyahu may have hoped, with his highly publicized apology carefully timed to lead evening TV news editions in Israel.

White House spokesperson Josh Earnest says that the administration will continue to “reassess” US policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, despite PM Netanyahu’s backtrack on rejecting Palestinian statehood and his apology over his “Arabs voting in droves” comments from Election Day.

Earnest says the US will continue cooperation on military and intelligence matters. In everything relating to diplomacy, the US will “keep communication channels open” with ally Israel. But he does not remove the threat of the US ceasing to protect Israel at the UN.
