Netanyahu's Saudi Fantasy 5.11.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Oded Balilty, Pool Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chairs the weekly cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister office in Jerusalem.  Perhaps because he was at a conference in Bulgaria, just a few hundred miles up the Black Sea coast from Istanbul, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu got around to  publicly commenting  last Friday on the murder of Saudi dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamil Khashoggi a month earlier in the Turkish capital.  “What happened in the Istanbul consulate was horrendous, and it should be duly dealt with,” Netanyahu said. The first part of that sounds fine. The second part sounds like he was talking about someone being pulled over for DUI, rather than about a brutal murder carried out by agents of the government of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Both parts belonged to the lip-service clause, after which Netanyahu got to his point. “Yet ... it is very important for the stability of the world, for the region and for the world, that Saudi Arabia ...

Abir Sultan/Pool via AP, File Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem. “If the campaign of incitement and vilification against anyone who disagrees with your views does not stop, blood will be spilled here. ... There is a deep division and you, elected leaders, have the power to end it.” Those words were spoken in Hebrew at the beginning of this week. They were not intended as a comment on the bombs that had not yet been discovered in the mail in America. Unintentionally, though, they provide commentary on the responsibility for violence by the supposed lone extremist.  The words come from Noa Rothman, granddaughter of Yitzhak Rabin. She  was speaking  at the state memorial ceremony for the prime minister who was assassinated 23 years ago. The “you” to whom she referred to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was present to hear her, and more widely to his political camp. Netanyahu and his loyalists were terribly offended. Quite a few ...
