Bibi Smash! Netanyahu Pushes Back on CBS Anchor Critical of Israel

In addition to siding with violent Palestinian border assaulters during Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, the network had anchor Jeff Glor sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu where he tried to grill the leader on his county’s military response. But despite Glor’s best efforts, Netanyahu schooled him on what it was like to be a country surrounded by enemies that want to see you destroyed.

Looking back on yesterday, especially Gaza, anything you would have done differently,” Glor wondered, obviously referring to the unverifiable casualty count provided by the Palestinians. Netanyahu said he wished it “wouldn't have happened at all” and explained how Hamas was incentivizing people to go with money. Glor seemed shocked:

GLOR: You said they're paying them?


GLOR: To try to cross the border?

NETANYAHU: Hamas is paying these people who are coming there.

If he didn’t understand that, it might blow Glor’s mind to learn that Hamas actually pays the families of their suicide terrorists too. “They're pushing civilians, women, children into the line of fire with the view of getting casualties. We try to minimize casualties. They're trying to incur casualties in order to put pressure on Israel, which is horrible,” Netanyahu added, to Glor’s apparent skepticism.
