The self-hating Jew that just won’t quit

July 30, 2009

In case you missed it earlier this summer, Haaretz had reported that according to an anonymous source in the government  that Bibi Netanyahu had referred to David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel as “self-hating Jews.”  The Israelis fumbled apologies and denials, Americans rolled their eyes, and the story died…

.. until yesterday.  JTA isreporting that when asked about the Prime Minister’s comment, government spokesman Mark Regev has denied that Bibi ever said those words.  If there is one lesson the Israelis in this case could learn from the Americans, it is that they should shut up and let the story die already.
