Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a page from President Trump and condemned liberal media outlets for promoting “fake news.”
In a video released on the Israeli Prime Minister YouTube channel, Netanyahu asked, “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,” Netanyahu began. “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,” Netanyahu continued. “This is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas document says that 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,” Netanyahu explained. “They want to use their state to destroy our state. Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel--is that progress or moderation? Only if you have no standards whatsoever.”
“It's bad enough that Hamas lies to the world. We don't also have to lie to ourselves. Hamas murders women and children. It’s launched thousands of missile attacks at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps,” Netanyahu added.
“So, where does this hate-filled document belong? Right there,” Netanyahu stated as he crumbled up and threw the new Hamas document in the trash.
