“Arrogant”, “Superficial A liar. New names for Israeli PM BiBis!

Bob Gates’s diagnosis was unflattering. The US defence secretary called him “arrogant”, “superficial”, and teeming with “outlandish ambition”. Gates even tried to get him banned from the White House grounds.

World leaders shared the same sentiments. The President of France said, “I can’t stand him. He’s a liar.” And the President of the United States, courtesy the same open mic, replied, “You’re sick of him? I have to work with him every day.”

Yes, Benjamin Netanyahu, he of silver hair and silver tongue, doesn’t bring out the best in people. The Israeli leadership has had its share of monsters, its Begins and Sharons. But Benny Netanyahu is a different kind of disease: a gentleman with a degree from MIT and an accent from Philadelphia.

Which is why, at first glance, the PM seems a lot more palatable than his predecessors, with their eye-patches and war crime inquiries.
