Here is what he really said:
It’s difficult for civilized men and women to recognize that our cities, our airways, sometimes our waterways are prowled by beasts that devour the innocent in their way. And the forces of civilization, when they realize the severity of this problem, have no option but to unite very clearly and defeat these beasts.
The beasts increasingly have a name - it is radical Islam. That is what is doing the killing, the murder, the rape, the burning, the beheadings. We must stand together and fight together militant Islam. The people of Israel grieve with you, the people of Israel stand with you. Now and always.
In his talk at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference that same day, Netanyahi also made clear that he distinguishes between Muslims and radical Islam.
The Arab sites are lying and they know they are lying.
But they reported the lies anyway. Al Wafd posted a followup story where readers reacted to the lie by cursing Israelis.
Egyptian TV even had a professor at Al Azhar University respond to the false report by calling Jews "serpents and sons of snakes."
This is deliberate incitement.
At least one English language Palestinian news site, Palestine News Network, repeated the lie, and also linked back to a similar lie claiming that Naftali Bennett had said that "we should have killed more Arabs." Yet they show the video where he clearly says that he says that "it's too bad that we didn't eliminate more terrorists."
Again, this is incitement meant to get Arabs angry and to attack Jews.
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 22,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
