Elkin: It's Okay to Say 'No' to Obama

MK Ze’ev Elkin (Likud), chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said on Thursday that it is okay to say “no” to U.S. President Barack Obama if Israel's security is at stake.

"The United States is a senior partner of ours and is very important to us, but this partnership cannot come at the expense of the security of Israel's citizens," Elkin told Army Radio.
