Making the rounds on the US television media today (appearing on both Meet the Press and State of the Nation), Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu furiously attacked American newspapers for publishing columns critical of his plans for a war with Iran.
Saying the columnists had “set a new standard for human stupidity,” Netanyahu bashed the idea that Iran’s civilian nuclear program was on par with the Soviet Union’s massive nuclear weapons arsenal, insisting Iran’s non-existent weapons were far more dangerous.
“They put zealotry above survival, they have suicide bombers all over the place,” Netanyahu insisted, ignoring that Iran issued religious fatwas banning suicide bombing decades ago and has not been implicated, beyond vague and unsubstantiated allegations, in a single suicide bomb attack in many years.
Netanyahu went on from lying about Iran’s putative suicide bombers to lying about the civilian nuclear program, claiming Iran was “six months” away from nuclear weapons capability despite not having made even a single gram of weapons grade uranium, and warning that if the US doesn’t act soon it will be “too late.”

My, my, my,
It just pains me to NO end.
when I see my right-wing, gun-loving friends
get Soooo upset over Iran wanting to build nuclear weapons.
God, they want to start yet ANOTHER war to stop it!
But for the life of me-
I don't understand WHY those right-wing gun-rights advocates,
(the very same guys who claim the God-given
right to arm THEMSELVES to the gills),
should object to Iran arming itself in any way that it sees fit.
Hey, it's a tough tough tough world out there, right guys?
And after all,
nuclear weapons don't kill people – people do.
Am I right, or am I right, right-wingers?
Were I in Iran, next-door to Izrahell's Diamona lab (with how many nukes, now? about 400-plus?) on the ready, I would be happy for my government to have at least ONE nuke. Yet, and with all of the investigation by US, UN, etc.., nothing has been found.
Still Bibi's rants go on and get crazier by the moment.
Do we usually give into those who act like spoiled children? I hope not!
Boobi plunges ever deeper into ridiculous idiocy.
Foam at the mouth, Boobi.
He's becoming like a carnival geek. Soon he will bite the head off a chicken.
Actually he will launch another attack on Gaza. Nothing like attacking unarmed old arab woman to show off the billions of advanced military equipment flooded on Israel by our corrupt congress. We are warriors we beat the Gaza military.
Here's what we need to do:
1. Remove all of our military and militia (pro-IZ) out of Palestine and IZ
2. Tell Bibi to have at it.
Why is the US Military supposed to be at Bibi's beck-n-call? They do not belong to us and we surely don't belong to them. If they want war, I am sure others will oblige, but why is the US automatically involved? We cannot afford this in any sense of the word.
Why the US Congress tolerates a foreign Prime Minister's (Bibi's) attempt to determine a national policy of American relations to another country is highly objectionable. How many dual Israeli/American citizens do we have in our Congress and where are their allegiances? Has the US Congress been infiltrated by those whose allegiance is to another country?
I do not know how many dual citizens are in congress but I believe there should be none. Israel now limits the dual citizens from holding certain jobs held in Israel, If Israel knows there is a problem with dual citizenship then we should also. Congress provides billions to Israel and then Israel provides millions to get the overly generous congressman or senator elected. A man cannot serve two masters and I think our congress have decide to be prostitutes to fund their career as professional politicians, Lets yake our nation back and vote for people who are loyal to the USA only.
All American Jews are counted upon to either support Israel-leaning politicians or be against any political aspirants who seems uninterested in Israel. I've never had their interests lying anywhere within the borders of U.S.A.
That is obviously the case.
You are absolutely right!
And we keep reelecting the same traitors, time and again.
Wake up America!!
This Nazi lunatic has to be stopped and send to Hague for a brief court case.case similar to Nurrenburg nazi trials ….
When our Congress must sign a loyalty pledge to that sheety little country to even run for office in a winnable manner, it becomes obvious we have an occupier in the nation that needs exterminated.
Is it true that Benjamin Netanyahu has his own custom made straight jacket, or just uses a regular one.
What other heads of state are offered hours of TV time to rant and rage because the US is not starting the war they would like us to fight for them?
This little man needs his mouth washed out with soap and most of all he needs to learn some manners.
He is behaving toward the US like a cheap pimp "correcting" a reluctant money maker.
And while in our house.
this guy is an idiot!
If Satan had a son,it would be Netanyahu. If Satan had a dog, it would be Lieberman
Bomb Gaza, bomb Lebanon, bomb Syria, bomb Irag, bomb Iran, bomb people protesting wars, bomb other religion…bomb everything!!!
Cut somebody Head of this terrorist and no blood!! will pour out of his veins, but only BULLETS and SHRAPNELS….peter czech
Sorry, Netanyahu, you have set the standards for stupidity. But keep going, keep blustering your way into the trap set for you. The trap that will hopefully release the US from your grip.
Just think, this is the fellow who was given repeated standing ovation by the American? Congress. How much attention to the wishes of the American people do our "representatives" ever give?
Also we should not allow dual citizenship. You cannot serve two masters. This needs to be addressed.
This article is inaccurate. I saw the interview. He said 'stupidity' in reference to those who say it's okay for Iran to get a nuclear weapon and that it might actually stabilize the middle east. Netanyahu makes plenty of outrageous and deceitful comments, no need to misconstrue his meaning on this one.
The more Bibi rantings are shown on US television the more his "real" persona is exposed. And the more non neocon fanatics can claim, " we told you so".
When you can't browbeat the newspapers in your own country into believing the lies you're peddling…you go across the pond to your redheaded stepchild's playground and rant and rave your spew hoping to get some sympathy – hoping to insinuate yourself into a political process you have no business getting involved in. Imagine the hue and cry if Obama went to Israel and spent hours on Israeli TV haranguing the Israeli people to not vote for Netanyahoo in the upcoming Israeli election because Obama doesn't want to go along with Bibi's plan to destroy Israel…
>>>"It's the same fanaticism that you see storming your embassies today.
>>>You want these fanatics to have nuclear weapons?"
>>>Stabilize the Middle East! I think that the people who say this set a new standard for human stupidity."
Netanyahu is desperately hoping that his US audience will set a new standard for human stupidity.
If he wants a better example of fanaticism he need look no further than his own 'Settlers' – or the nearest mirror.
Listening to Netanyahu brought to my mind the final pleas of Jim Jones to his cult as he passed out the Kool-Aid.
Crazy man with nuclear weapons and US newspapers are stupid. I'll concede to Bibs that US newspapers are craven and lickspittle, leaning towards the warmongering side of evil. However, Bibs wanting to blast bejesus out of Iran is simply insane and seriously lacking in any credibility whatsoever. You know, Iran being six months away from having a nuke. Hell, Bibs has been on about that for 20 years now.
Sounds like Bibi needs to up his dose of Prozac. He's falling apart at the seams.
If Netanyahu gets to speak to the US Congress after such dispicable interference in American foreign affairs ti will tell me more about our elected representatives than Bibi. They all might be agents of a foreign power.
Wrap this imbecile in the Israeli flag and make him walk down the center of Tehran spewing his racist/terrorist diatribes…let the Iranians take care of this cretin the way the Italians took care of Mussolini.
Tail wagging the dog again, eh?
And Israel is held up as an example of democracy. This is the best leader their wonderful democracy comes up with?
The US supports endless wars for Israel, it all started a decade ago after a false flag attack.

It's a known fact that anti-psychotic drugs often lose their effectiveness over time. Time for this lunatic to have his meds adjusted.
As per Otto von Bismark: "Preemptive war is like committing suicide out of fear of death".
Zionist Warmongering Nutcase Benjamin Netanyahu needs to be in a padded cell.
This insane anti-human is mankind's nemesis. May he reap what he intends to sow.
Why should the entire world become radioactive because of the rantings of this madman?
This nutball could start WWIII at any moment.
Nutty Yahoo and his rabid dog foreign minister need to be put on a deserted island where they can scream their jibberish without the civilised world needing to hear it …
This article is just a smeer. The picture is possibly photoshopped and definitely from somewhere completely different. And the article itself makes nonsensical claims , Nobody asked Netanyahu if a Soviet nuclear arsenal was on par with a non existent Iranian one. So he wouldn't have responded to that idea. The article is just nonsense And as to the claim about Iran banning suicide bombings, a Google shows "Iranian Clerics Call For Attacks And Suicide Bombings On Global Saudi Interests"
But anyhow, Netanyahu's quote about suicide bombings were taken out of context, I recall him talking not about Iran specifically, but about the ideology that drives them (Fundamentalist Islam), which puts its zealotry before its survival.
