She's, erm, "apologized".
Translation: "Whoops! Sorry for revealing that I'm a senile idiot."I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.

That being said, I didn't say the Israelis were "out of control". In fact, I think the Israelis are fully in control of themselves and it is the Palestinians who are out of control. However, that leaves Israel with a much greater responsibility to act in a humane and measured way when they respond to threats from Palestine...something which they have been seriously failing to do.
