The Free Beacon reported that Clinton’s comments came while at the State Department:
Hillary Clinton accused the Jewish state of acting “cocky” during a major 2010 feud between the then-secretary of state and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a recently disclosed email she sent to an aide.
Clinton’s criticism came during a period described by Israel’s then-ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, as the worst point in U.S.-Israel relations in 35 years, a situation largely attributed to Clinton’s own actions.
Just a week before Clinton’s email was sent, she berated Netanyahu in a 45-minute phone call. She demanded that Netanyahu consent to multiple demands to preserve the historically close U.S.-Israel relationship.
