At Davos, just about every Israeli politician we have heard of is attending. Today I saw on television a panel of 2 Fortune 500 CEOs and Benjamin Netanyahu field questions on the global financial crisis and the prospects of recovery.
This what Netanyahu says;
"I'm optimistic about Israel. I don’t accept the assumption that Israel is dependent on the global economy and nothing can be done about it. Israel was one of the last countries to enter the crisis, and if we act right, Israel will be one of the first countries to emerge from it."
Of course you don't Benny, you get billions in annual subsidies from the US tax payer but exclusively in Euros because the dollar ain't good enough.
Then this horse's arse starts lecturing the audiences at another meeting of the danger posed by Iran.
"What is not reversible is the acquisition of nuclear weapons by a fanatic radical regime ... We have never had, since the dawn of the nuclear age, nuclear weapons in the hands of such a fanatical regime," he said.
Oy vey! Is he talking about Israel?
