אובמה זה יפה, קלינטון זה מקסים, אבל העובדה שעדיין אף מנהיג ערבי לא אישר השתתפות מראה איך הצליח נתניהו להשניא את ישראל ולהתנתק מחזון השלום.— Yariv Oppenheimer (@yarivop) September 28, 2016
"Obama [attending Peres' funeral] is nice, Clinton [attending it] is wonderful, but the fact that no Arab leader has confirmed his attendance yet shows how Netanyahu managed to make everyone hate Israel and disconnect from the vision of peace."First of all, there are unconfirmed reports that Egypt's president and Jordan's king will attend.
But even if they don't, for Oppenheimer to blame Bibi is deranged. He cannot be unaware of the incitement against Israel that is seen daily in the Arab world, and it is not aimed at Netanyahu but at Israel altogether. The PA's refusal to "normalize" with Israel is not because of Netanyahu's policies but because of Israel itself.
And we have seen recently a former Saudi general visit Israel, Israel opening up a diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi, much warmer relations with Egypt, and only this week a major sale of Israeli gas reserves to Jordan.
All under the government of Binyamin Netanyahu.
The amount of self-delusion in the Israeli Left is something to behold.
The responses to Oppenheimer's tweet are appropriately derisive, saying that Bibi was also responsible for the destruction of the first temple, 9/11, the Holocaust and Justin Bieber.
