|Who did Netanyahu return to the path of reason?|
Having watched Israel's Prime Minister since 1996, I haven't made up my mind whether Binyamin Netanyahu is crazy or he just going to play games with the public. Right now, I still tend to the latter, although I think he's not as savvy as Shimon Peres.
Although Netanyahu's Zionist believers may take his historical fairy tales at face value, the world has shown him a red line. They won't be fooled by a charlatan.
According to Netanyahu, Hitler got the idea of the Final Solution from the mufti Amin al-Husseini. Hitler just wanted to expel the Jews the mufti told him to "burn them". The mufti as the string-puller behind Hitler, which seems quite bizarre. If it had not been for the Israeli Prime Minister, nobody would have taken notice of this nonsense.
Netanyahu is not so clever that he would himself come up with this rubbish. He has excellent spin doctors who do the readings and writings. Two Zionist scientists discovered these groundbreaking insights in the book "Nazis, Islamists and the Making of the Modern Middle East".
With this unhistorical view, did Netanyahu want to distract attention from his brutal oppression of the Palestinians or the efforts of right-wing Jews to take over the Temple Mount? In linking the mufti to the Nazi atrocities, Netanyahu aimed, de facto, at President Mahmoud Abbas in order to weaken his already weak position even further and squeeze further concessions out of him.
