There’s something bizarre about seeing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoting himself in a lighthearted campaign ad; but the latest spot from the Likud party brings a nice slice of humanity into an otherwise-bitterly contested election, and offers up a laugh or two in the process.

Is there anyone who gets Obama more upset than Bibi Netanyahu?

It’s not for nothing that unnamed senior administration officials called Netanyahu “chickenshit” and mocked Israel’s failure to attack Iran.

Almost since the beginning of this website in the fall of 2008 I have been sounding the alarm about, and documenting, the rise of anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Zionism in Europe.

The speech takes place against the backdrop of a libelous speech by Mahmoud Abbas that even a left-leaning Haaretz columnist noted “more or less buried the peace process.”
