Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu labeled CNN and the New York Times “fake news” on Sunday.
Netanyahu called a CNN headline that said ‘Hamas says it accepts ’67 borders, but doesn’t recognize Israel’ as “fake news” and asked, “Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel – is that progress, or moderation?”
“The new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians,” Netanyahu explained. “It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel. So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now? In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state.”
“It’s bad enough Hamas lies to the world. We don’t also have to lie to ourselves,” he added.
