Netanyahu’s Master Class on British TV

editor 9 November 2017

By Melanie Phillips.. Whatever you think about Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu, this is a master class in how to present the case, not just for Israel but for rational western policy on the manifold and gathering threats to the world within the Middle East – of which the overwhelming threat by far is posed by Iran. Watch how he calmly copes with the usual boiler-plate prejudices about the Palestinians and then makes the points that so badly need to be made to a British audience – such as pointing out that Israel has helped save many British lives. Not a fact that the British often hear. Watch the video below.  (more…)

Statements by PM Netanyahu at the General Assembly (GA) of the Jewish Federations of North America

editor 18 November 2016

By Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).. Hello to all of you from Jerusalem.
Question

Everybody here also realizes that no prime minister in the history of Israel has done as much to understand the concerns of North American Jewry and has done more to make this egalitarian space a reality. For that we thank you. But could you please give us an update with respect to the implementation and what you recommend that we do and that we not do to help this process. (more…)

editor 6 September 2016

By Manfred Gerstenfeld.. Next week Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu will visit the Netherlands (September 6 and 7, 2016). A succinct summary of anti-Israel incitement there may help him and his staff to better understand how the current Dutch reality differs from the distorted positive image many people still hold, namely the one based on the much publicized story of Anne Frank and her diary. The Anne Frank story has entirely overshadowed a far more important one: the total disinterest of the Dutch government in exile in London during the Second World War in the fate of its Jewish citizens under the German occupation.
