"It was a festival of slights," remarked the "Daily Show" host about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress on Tuesday.
During Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's impassioned plea to Congress to protect Israel by opposing diplomacy with Iran, he failed to mention that Israel has an arsenal of 100 or 200 nuclear weapons.
Most Iranians had difficulty taking the Israeli prime minister seriously.
For "Prime Minister Netanyahu and the hawks in Congress, mostly Republican, the primary goal is to undermine any potential negotiation that might settle whatever issue there is with Iran," the renowned political commentator and linguist tells Amy Goodman on a recent episode of "Democracy Now!"
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is stridently and continually harping on the alleged dangers of Iran to Israel’s security. And yet, there are, in fact, more pressing dangers to Israel than Iran’s nuclear reactors.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes a bid to thwart President Barack Obama’s foreign policy toward Iran, the Iranian press is reacting to the wrench Netanyahu is trying to throw into negotiations over Iran’s civilian nuclear enrichment program. But for some odd reason, American mass media are almost never interested in what critics of the United States are saying.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly believes he can openly side with the Republican Congress against President Barack Obama without facing any consequences. However, Meir Dagan, the former head of Israeli intelligence, sees danger.
Senator Bernie Sanders, the most consistent and prominent progressive in the U.S. Senate, has decided to skip the speech of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress on March 3. It is Bibi’s Kanye West moment.
