99. And I am shocked that this dubious story is being accepted so readily
Especially by someone who is as skeptical about unsourced alleged quotes, inaccurately translated news items, and reporting from Ynet generally as you are.

If this conversation between Emanuel and a "leading American Jewish figure" actually took place, it is hard to believe that it would not have been reported somewhere in the multitude of Jewish American news sources that exist.

If Ynet has scooped the rest of the journalistic world and is the only source that has been given access to this hugely significant statement from Emanuel, it seems bizarre that they would not include it on either their English or Hebrew online editions.

And the second part of the blogger's version of the story regarding the Netanyahu-Obama meeting in the US has been directly contradicted elsewhere in the same newspaper.
