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

In addition to siding with violent Palestinian border assaultersduring 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.

Glor ridiculously followed that up with questioning whether Israel could ever sit down and negotiate with the Hamas terrorists who want to kill them. Netanyahu masterfully shot back with his own rhetorical question: “Could you talk to Al Qaeda, would you have discussions with bin Laden?” “As long as they seek our destruction, what am I going to...Read More HERE
