Netanyahu’s Obsessions

Did Bibi Call Rahm a "Self-hating Jew"?

This doesn’t bode well for Israel’s relationship with the U.S.: According to Haaretz, “[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu appears to be suffering from confusion and paranoia. He is convinced that the media are after him, that his aides are leaking information against him and that the American administration wants him out of office. Two months after his visit to Washington, he is still finding it difficult to communication [sic] normally with the White House. To appreciate the depth of his paranoia, it is enough to hear how he refers to Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, Obama's senior aides: as ‘self-hating Jews.’” The Israeli P.M. is reportedly obsessed with the media, surrounded by bickering aides, and has created “an atmosphere of permanent crisis.”
