Netanyahu distances himself from comments by new adviser who suggested Obama anti-Semitic

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday denounced a number of past statements against senior US officials made by his newly-appointed media adviser, Ran Baratz.

The Facebook posts written by Baratz came to light on Thursday after he was tapped by Netanyahu to be his next spokesman and head of public diplomacy and media relations in the Prime Minister’s Office.

In one such post, Baratz referred to US President Barack Obama’s response to the premier’s Iran speech in Congress as "modern anti-Semitism."
