    A leader who to the misfortune of Israelis is considered "a master of deception and a liar" by western leaders with the exception of US of course.

    His 'famous' speech to the Bar Ilan university in April of 2008 when he gloated over 9/11 attacks. His exact quotes are blocked.

    " injured AlQaeda terrorists from Syria being treated in secret by Israel". The disclosure first made by staunchly pro-Israel Debka File. And then widely by other media outlets.

    A leader who is a bigger threat to world peace than any other, jeopardizing US geopolitical interests and forcing us into proxy wars.

    Mr. Netanyahu is a great leader who has spent his life fighting against Islamic Terrorism. It is not easy for a small country like Israel to stand for what is right in the middle of all those Arab countries. Israel is a democracy in the middle of a bunch of dictators. Mr. Netanyahu has provided strong leadership for a just cause. Get well soon. Best wishes.

    The game his regime has undertaken to play in the M.East under the "Oded Yinon Plan' would surely push the world towards a horrific firestorm if not checked.
    I have more but wouldn't get thru.
    Have a good one.

    Yeah sure, under the tutelage of the Rabbi Yusuf Ovaida Netanyahu's mentor, the ultra right Likud or Shas or terrorism preached by the likes of Rabbi Shapira and Elitzer.

      Israel was until recently the only mideast country where several hundred thousand Arabs had the right to vote in free and open elections. So yes, it is a democracy.

    for its own sake US needs to distance itself from the policies of this regime and listen to the sane Jewish voices both here and in Israel. Netrui Karta, Gush Shalom,Satmar, IJAN, Jewish Voice for Peace, JStreet and others.

    Agreed @ saywhat, i have many jewish friends who say the same. Netanyahu only wishes to be at war with anyone and everyone just for being at war. Peace is NOT part of his agenda! And i believe reader is the resident jacker FYI.

    It occurs to me that the operation was needed because of the weight of his gigantic cojones.
