What does it say about the American press and the anti-semitic left that, to get a fair interview with Benjamin Netanyahu, you have to go back to 2013 and Bill Maher? When you watch it today, his predictions are so spot-on that they’re chilling. I’m sure a lot of conservatives probably missed this interview when it first came out because, hey, it’s Bill Maher. It’s also the most honest interview I’ve ever seen with the Prime Minister.
Here is a leader who can speak to an audience more honestly and openly than any of the leaders we have here. I can’t help but think of the Malcolm X quote “We want to talk right down to earth in a language that everybody here can easily understand”–only the topic is about Israel’s right to exist and defend itself. Crazy thought, I know. The part near the end where he says why he thinks so many Europeans feel it’s an appropriate analogy to compare Israel to the Nazis was particularly poignant. Oh Europe… when will you ever get it right?
