The Prime Minister’s Office dismissed as “unacceptable and wrong” an uncharacteristically sharp public criticism of Israel’s legal standards leveled Monday by US envoy Dan Shapiro, who said there seems at times to be one standard of law in the West Bank for Israelis, and another for Palestinians.

“As Israel’s devoted friend and its most stalwart partner, we believe that Israel must develop stronger and more credible responses to questions about the rule of law in the West Bank,” Shapiro said during an address at the annual Institute for Strategic Studies Conference in Tel Aviv.

    This man has obviously been eating Obama peyote. With this present White House administration Israel’s main objective has been to avoid drinking the Obama koolade. America and Europe have unfortunately spent to much time at the purple fountain. All you hear from the Obama akalaids are he has turned the American economy around….with 20 trillion dollars of debt….any idiot on this planet could do that……Europe has been overrun with Hillarys Bengazi refugees…..And this idiot says America is Israel’s most devoted friend. Hallucinatory hog wash.
