Danny Ayalon tells a white lie
Of course he's lying, but it was a stupid question to ask. What did they expect him to say? What Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said is that the outcome of today's American election doesn't matter to Israel
. Tell that to more than 70,000 American citizens living in Israel who voted for Mitt Romney.
Israel is indifferent to the outcome of the US presidential election
as the Jewish state will continue to enjoy bipartisan American support
irrespective of who wins, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told
Israel Radio Tuesday morning.
Responding to whether the government
believed that a potentially re-empowered US President Barack Obama
would apply pressure on Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians,
Ayalon stressed that "Israel does not need any pressure in order to make
peace or to reach diplomatic agreements."
Someone please tell me that the foreign ministry isn't dumb enough to believe this crap.
