(Israel Hayom) – What began last week as a dispute over construction plans in Jerusalem’s Givat Hamatos neighborhood has turned into a war of words between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Obama administration.

In a CBS interview that aired on Sunday, Netanyahu said that U.S. government criticism of construction in east Jerusalem “doesn’t reflect American values.”

White House spokesman Josh Earnest issued a harsh response to Netanyahu on Monday, saying, “It did seem odd for him to try to defend the actions of his government by saying that our response did not reflect American values.”
