Netanyahu up close and personal

People criticize me for my casual photos. Well, take a look at Netanyahu’s official twitter feed and his personal twitter account— maybe I should friend Netanyahu on facebook!  I must say, these are some of the most unstatesmanlike pictures I’ve ever seen. A selection:

Here he is watching the Olympics last July.

Netanyahu does the Moses finger with the Golani brigade. Looks like the same shirt as above. Is this the guy you want to start World War 3?

He worked on his speech on the plane. That tie came off in a hurry.

He met the Secretary General, along with Deputy Prime Minister Avigdor Lieberman. Doesn’t look like Lieberman knows what to do with his hands, when he’s not ethnic cleansing.

Let’s face it: he’s not a nice guy and one can almost imagine a perpetual sneer on his preppy, porcine punim. But I see nothing unusual here. Lots of Israelis, like their distant Persian cousins, don’t wear ties or pose majestically all the time.

Funny, I think he’s actually a good-looking, middle-aged man, and in these pics he looks like a very ordinary middle-class guy: businessman / father / husband / uncle / etc.

IMO, that’s probably what’s most disturbing about those photos: They belie the fact that he’s the domineering leader of an oppressive, colonialist, expansionist and supremacist state.

bottom pic he looks like Sharon, jowls and all – noxious human being

Bibi likes to pose in front of the Talmud and other imposing, gold-trimmed Jewish tomes. Kinda like that rabbi in A Serious Man. We are the People of the Book and I am its Leader.

Funny, they never catch that flat-screen TV in the formal pictures of that bookcase.
I wonder if those books are real or if he just paid for the spine.
