Netanyahu 'doesn't care what Britain thinks of Israel'

The editor of The Jewish Chronicle has accused Israel's Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, of not caring about British public opinion after he refused to give any interviews during his visit to London last week.

In a comment piece in the newspaper, Stephen Pollard – though essentially supportive of Mr Netanyahu – concludes of his office: "The truth of it is that for all they moan about coverage of the Middle East, they don't actually care. They don't care if Brits end up thinking they are warmongers. They don't care if they are losing the PR war. And they don't care if those of us who do care are left fuming at their wilful refusal to do anything to help us counter Israel's appalling image."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Stephen Pollard: the Netanyahu government doesn't give a flying Frisbee as to what any country or that country's citizens think, and why should they?

The world press still describes Israelis as "victims of Palestinian aggression and violence", and any Israeli human rights group attempting to show that's not really the truth gets smeared and shredded by the Israeli media machinery.

Any criticism of Israeli policy, no matter how absolutely wrong-headed or anti-humanitarian toward the Palestinian people (like the siege of Gaza) is immediately labeled "Anti-Semitic".

And critically importantly, Mr. Pollard;the money and military aid keeps flowing in from the US, no matter how much Israel spits in President Obama's face, and tells him it's raining.

Under these conditions, Mr. Pollard, should Netanyahu give a rat's sphincter about what anyone's or any country's opinion of Israel was?

Absolutely not!
