PM on nominee who insulted Kerry, Obama: I didn’t say I would reconsider appointment

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu froze Ran Baratz’s appointment as his new media chief after past Facebook posts he had written insulting US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry made headlines around the world, but the prime minister wrote on Friday that he did not say that he would be reviewing the appointment, contrary to a US State Department report. 

"I did not say that I would reconsider the appointment of Dr. Ran Baratz, but rather I said that I would attend to the matter when I returned to Israel," Netanyahu wrote in the Hebrew language twitter account of the Prime Minister’s Office.
