Better not show the latest video of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan. She has already revealed that she is triggered just by the term "fake news" and the video of Netanyahu accusing CNN and the New York Times of reporting fake news about Hamas would probably cause her to wilt from such a macroaggression.
Netanyahu not only clearly explains why CNN and the Times were reporting fake news but provides a nice finishing touch by tossing the Hamas report into a trash bucket.
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 that Israel has not 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 consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now? In order to destroy Israel later. 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 tens of thousands of missiles at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps. So, where does this hate-filled document belong? Right there.
My only suggestion to Prime Minister Netanyahu is to use a trash bucket clearly labeled "Fake News." It would make a great eBay item!
