Do you believe Netanyahu's dad?

From The Jerusalem Post:

Channel 2 reported Wednesday night that the prime minister had told his father, 100-year-old historian Benzion Netanyahu, that he purposely set the conditions [for a Palestinian State, IIY] knowing that the Palestinians would never agree to them. [My emphasis, IIY.]

"He doesn't support [a Palestinian state]," the father said in a phone interview. "He set conditions that they won't ever accept. That's what he told me. He set the conditions and they won't accept even one of them."

Netanyahu's office responded by accusing Channel 2 of "maliciously tricking a 100-year-old man."

That Bibi should accuse his own father of senile weakness in order to cover his ass is indicative of the principles this man holds. Memo to Obama: that extends to the negotiating table too.

You left this out: "Kadima released a statement saying that the interview proved that Netanyahu did not endorse a Palestinian state in good faith."

and they do? If I were Angry Arab, I'd twig this is just like Syrian and Saudi media harping on the lack of democracy in either country.

briliant idea to call this 100 year old man for quote. i'm sure all his mental senses are fully alert!

Anon:

Going by previous emanations from Bibidaddy, I think it's safe to say Benzion is completely compos mentis, unlike you.

The art of setting unacceptable conditions to the creation of a Palestinian State is one that Israel perfected long before Netanyahoo became significant. But he had good mentors, perhaps including Benzion...

I dont believe a word any zionist says, I believe what I see. don't need an old man who prbably needs a piss bag to tell me what a 2 year old would probably be aware of, the palestinians have never had a partner for peace, and the longer the zionists follow these ridiculous pre-conditions, the more generations that grow, the more radical they will become. the lies of taba all over again is all I see coming from them. They will never give up whats theirs. The Irish kept going for 750 years, and they still aren't and won't be satisfied until the occupying power is out of the north. thats how it is, you cant take someones house and not expect them to not fight for it. The only hope for the zionists is genocide. A great many of the trolls are advocating it, lets see where it gets them. Hope your all ready for WW3!!!

no wonder Hamas hates BenZion:

Hamas trains their children to go be suicide bomber. BenZion's son Yoni was a paratrooper who rescued 100 innocent hijack victims in Entebbe airport in Uganda.

would you rather your son be a suicide bombers or a hero? Or do you think suiciders are heroes?
