Via NY Post: Obama administration, Netanyahu bicker on Twitter
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the Obama administration to task Sunday for using Twitter to call his stance on Iran “wrong for 25 years.”
Asked on CBS’s “Face the Nation” whether he was offended by the Friday tweet from the White House, Netanyahu retorted: “I think it’s useful to remember who your ally is and who your enemy is.”

On Sunday, the prime minister defended his predictions — and also responded with his own Twitter dig.
“If I had to choose, I would retweet something that relates to Iran and that’s the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s recent tweet in which he cites nine ways and reasons that Israel should be destroyed,” Netanyahu said….
