He's a war criminal.
by Stephen Lendman
Netanyahu represents lawless rogue leadership. He belongs in prison, not high office. Pre-election polls suggest he'll retain power.
Israelis aren't smart enough to spurn him. Palestinian suffering will continue. The new year began like 2012 ended. More on that below.
On December 22, Netanyahu warned he'll hit Hamas "with a heavier blow" than Pillar of Cloud. He spoke on Israeli television.
"I suggest Hamas not celebrate," he said. Israeli state terror remains ongoing. "We inflicted a very heavy blow," he added.
"We destroyed almost all of their long-range rockets. But I'm telling you that the IDF is preparing to strike a still-heavier blow. Our account with Hamas is not closed."
He discussed late January elections. "The public knows who will deal best with the security, regional and economic challenges. The public wants a strong prime minister with a strong party behind him."
