(CNN) JERUSALEM - When asked on Saturday evening about a report that he told Secretary of State John Kerry and US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro "not to ever second guess me again" on how to deal with Hamas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not deny them, choosing instead to say the report didn't reflect the general "tone and substance" of the calls.
"First let me make a general statement about our relationship with the United States," Netanyahu said in English when an American journalist asked about the report from the Associated Press' Matt Lee. "I think the United States has been terrific."
