We have been saying from time immemorial that Benjamin Netanyahu is worse than a suicide bomber. He seems to have been caught with his pants down lately again. Bribery, corruption and other frauds have been Netanyahu’s daily bread. But that’s not all.
During Israel’s Operation Protective Edge (2014), which lasted a little over a month, more than 2,000 Palestinians were killed.
After Operation Cast Lead, which is also known as the Gaza Massacre and which lasted about a month, more than a thousand Palestinians were killed—759 of whom were civilians. After the Operation Protective Edge, more than two thousand Palestinians were butchered, and more than ten thousands were wounded.
No suicide bomber has been responsible for the deaths of so many people in a short amount of time. Only Netanyahu can do such a thing. So, is it possible that this man deserves to be locked up for the rest of his natural life? Is it possible that he could be a psychopath in a nice costume?
Well, one way to put these issues to the test is to examine what Netanyahu has been saying for the past decade or so. In chapter 6 of his 1995 book Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists, Netanyahu wrote unapologetically:
“The best estimates at this time place Iran between three and five years away from possessing the prerequisites required for the independent production of nuclear weapons.
“After this time, the Iranian Islamic republic will have the ability to construct atomic weapons without the importation of materials or technology from abroad…The first phase of construction and electrical work will be completed within three to four years.”
Did you catch that? According to Netanyahu’s calculation, Iran should have acquired nuclear weapons by 2000. It’s been more than fifteen years and Iran still doesn’t have nuclear weapons. What’s so interesting is that the intelligence community has universally declared that Iran dropped its nuclear programs a long time ago.
But Netanyahu, of course, was not prepared to deal with that fact because he wanted to perpetuate the hoax that Iran was working towards the development of nuclear bombs.
Netanyahu’s Fighting Terrorism was hailed as a political breakthrough by the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Detroit News, etc. To this very day, none of these Zionist outlets has ever apologized for their abject blunder.
Yet despite all of this, Netanyahu continues to perpetuate lies as gospel truth. Iran, Bibi has said, wants to “dominate the world.” He added:
“The one potent force in militant Islam that has emerged is Iran. And it is devouring one nation after the other. It is doing so either by direct conflict, or more usually by using proxies.”
This man obviously thinks that the entire world is blind and that no one has been able to keep a record of what’s happening in the Middle East. When was the last time Iran invaded another country? Do a little history. The answer may surprise you.
In 2015, former Mossad chief Meir Dagan called Netanyahu’s speech before Congress “bullshit.” In the same year, Israeli news commentator and former politician Yossi Sarid declared that Benjamin Netanyahu “is a psychopath.”
Well, what do you do with psychopaths, particularly when they start committing crimes? Do you allow them to roam the earth? Do give him carrots? Do you pet them? Or do you lock them up in padded cells for the rest of their natural lives?
