Benjamin Netanyahu was all over US TV yesterday (I saw him on CNN), trashing our president’s negotiations with Iran. The PM released this trailer of his best lines to American media.
He was Islamophobic:
Iran is a great deal more dangerous than North Korea. It’s a militant Islamic power bent on regional domination, in fact bent on world domination, as it openly says so.
Has Iran ever said it is bent on world domination? That is surely a lie.
Notice Netanyahu’s references to “congenital cheating” in Iran:
This is not a personal issue now between me and the president… We do have a difference of opinion. This is a difference of policies, not a clash of personalities….Iran is shown to be completely distrustful. It’s not a country that you can place your trust in. And it’s not a country that you are going to resolve its congenital cheating– you’re just not going to resolve it by placing more inspectors there.
Do the Iranians get to counter these claims? When will our media give Hassan Rouhani the megaphone?
