Bibi Netanyahu Throws Down on 'Fake News,' Slams Pro-Palestinian Media...
Seriously, does anyone have a better "talking straight to the camera game" than Netanyahu? Every time I watch one of these videos (see Netanyahu Speaks Directly to Iranians, Shows True Tolerance and Netanyahu Delivers Scathing Response to Islamic Terrorism) I think of an only 90s theme song, Bibi in Charge of our days and our nights....
Here's his take on fake news. Spoiler, he's not talking about CRTV saying something mean about SJWs...
Ever wonder what fake news is?
Last week, headlines in CNN, Al-Jazeera and The Guardian said that Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines.
The New York Times headline called this "moderation".
The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel.
Great news, right?
Well, except for one small detail: this is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians. It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel.
So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now?
In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state.
Fake News. It's all around us. And it's not just an American parlance either, as it turns out. But what Bibi is describing as "fake news" above used to go by another name, a longer name with a negative connotation: propaganda. The spreading of a political narrative to change public opinion. Which is what "fake news" has now become, yeah? We turn on the television (or for many of us just log onto the nearest WiFi) and are inundated with "fake news" we have to sort through to determine what is slavish propaganda to a certain political cause, and what is actually news. Each side has a competing narrative. But one side (the left) tends to just paint the other side (the right) as simple hate mongers who kick puppies.

But back to Bibi here. He's leading a tiny country whose neighbors want its annihilation. Those neighboring countries have now resorted to "fake news" (propaganda) in hopes of further swaying public opinion. While steadfastly ignoring all the crimes Palestinians commit in order to wipe Israel off of all maps which have ever recorded its existence. Like these stories of Palestinians cuddling Israelis with pointy objects:
- EVIL: Palestinians Decorate Jerusalem Christmas Tree with Photos of Martyrs
- 67% of Palestinians Support Knifing Israelis. Yes, Even Little Girls
- Palestinians Teach Their Children to Stab Jews, and They're Doing It
The takeaway: Israel is a bastion of freedom and democracy in a region of historical barbarism. Which Palestine hopes to destroy. Barbarism is kind of their calling card.
