Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu: CNN And NY Times Trusting The Word Of Hamas Is The Definition Of "Fake News"

|

In a video message posted online on Sunday, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu joined US President Trump in labelling CNN and the New York Times "fake news."

Netanyahu took issue with a series of reports in the Western press this week about a declaration Monday from one faction of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas that the group wants to restore the 1967 borders with Israel. The New York Times reported that "in an intensfying struggle for leadership of the Palestinian cause... ["Hamas Moderates"] are trying to offer a more mainstream-friendly version of its vision."

CNN's headline said: Hamas says it accepts '67 borders, but doesn't recognize Israel.

Netanyahu called this "fake news" and asked: "Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel – is that progress, or moderation?"

"The new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians," Netanyahu explained. "It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel. So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now? In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state."

"It's bad enough Hamas lies to the world. We don't also have to lie to ourselves," he added.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU: Ever wonder what fake news is?

Last week, headlines in CNN, Al-Jazeera and The Guardian said that Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines.

The New York Times headline called this "moderation".

The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel.

Great news, right?

Well, except for one small detail: this is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians. It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel.

So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now?

In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state.

Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel – is that progress, or moderation?

Only if you have no standards whatsoever!

It's bad enough Hamas lies to the world.

We don't also have to lie to ourselves.

Hamas murders women and children. Its launched thousands of missile attacks at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps.

So, where does this hate-filled document belong?
