Netanyahu is Israel's PM. So he's the one who has to cope with the pogrom, he himself has helped to arouse. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    1. He named Lieberman as Israel's FM, not in any other less absurd portfolio for him. 2. He hasn't come up with initiatives, and blaming Abbas wasn't and isn't enough. 3. He stalled, waited and hoped, until the Palestinian train overran Israel. 4. He has a share in souring the relationship with the USA, who's still kind enough to put its prestige on the line and vetoing the bid at the UNSC. 5. He has no vision, no plan, no leadership, no other goal than prolonguing the status quo, hoping that "facts on the ground" would finally draw reality. But he bet on the wrong horse. Global sympathy for Palestinians, earned with relentless Arab propaganda, including Arab blackmail over decades, amounts to "facts on the ground" too, whether Netanyahu sees them or not. 6. So he's entitled to go to the UNGA in New York, and say "the truth" in front of maybe half the delegates. The USA and the EU will be there to listen to him, as well as Australia and Canada, even Russia and China. Brazil and India will sit there to earn an undeserved aura of impartiality. And that would be it. Some boos, some loud exiting the room, but he will say what he has to say, at the day when Israel will face the diplomatic pogrom, anyone could have predicted by the sheer stupidity of naming Lieberman as "Diplomat in Chief". (BTW, Caligula named his horse as consul of Rome).
