WASHINGTON (JTA) -- President Obama never snubbed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's U.S. ambassador said.
Michael Oren ran through what he said were the distortions of a March 23 White House meeting between Netanyahu and Obama during a dinner he hosted this week for top Democrats.
According to an account of Oren's remarks prepared by the National Jewish Democratic Council, whose officers attended the dinner, Oren outlined why the Obama-Netanyahu meeting was not a snub.
