Netanyahu: Bad Press Better than Good Eulogy


netanyahuFollowing his speech at the UN, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu granted multiple media interviews to major U.S. networks on Wednesday.

“We have to be very responsible, buck the trends, don’t go by fashion,” Bibi told PBS host Charlie Rose. “If you govern by fashion and you govern by the kind of editorials you’re going to get, you’ll get good editorials and later you’ll get good eulogies. My responsibility is to ensure the survival, security, longevity of the one and only Jewish state.”

He told the American Spanish-language network Univision: “[The Iranians] are building these long-range intercontinental missiles to reach the United States. And they want to arm them with nuclear weapons.”

He told NBC: “Iran conducts, as we speak now, terrorist operations in dozens of countries. He [Rouhani] speaks of the tragedy in Syria, Iran’s forces help Assad perpetrate the massacre of tens of thousands of men, women and children as we speak.”
