    The response and the publicity is nonsensical. For goodness Netanyahu he is the leader of the country. Not only does the situation demand he be rested and comfortable when travelling for meetings that may be world shattering but common decency shown to a leader dictates it. Anyway, the $125000 is small change. It is a pittance compared to what our president's wife spent on a weekend's entertainment for her family and friends. Millions upon millions of wasted dollars and not for any purpose other than a bit of family fun. And that's all we know about. It's long overdue that we put the issue of Bibi and the bed behind us and move on. The bed will be used by his successors. It's not personal property and will remain in the plane. Do you think when the U S president flies on Airforce one, that he sleeps on a mat on the cabin floor?
