Likud MK says Obama’s criticism of Netanyahu has ‘a bit of hypocrisy’

A confidante of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused US President Barack Obama on Friday of exhibiting “an iota of hypocrisy” in criticizing the premier for remarks made during the recent election campaign which were perceived as racist.

In an interview with Israel Radio on Friday, Likud MK Tzachi Hanegbi was asked to comment on Obama’s comments to The Atlantic.

“It’s astonishing that President Obama didn’t see fit to criticize countries like Iran, which regularly executes people, or Turkey, where journalists who write things critical of their government are sent to jail,” Hanegbi said.
