Netanyahu Shreds Leftist CBS Host For Promoting Anti-Israel Propaganda: U.S. Would Be ‘Doing A Hell Of A Lot More’ Than Israel In 10/7 Response
TOPSHOT - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (R) greets French President Emmanuel Macron before a meeting in Jerusalem on October 24, 2023. Macron's visit comes more than two weeks after Hamas militants stormed into Israel from the Gaza Strip and killed at least 1,400 people, according to Israeli officials while Israel continues a relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip and prepares for a ground offensive with more than 5,000 Palestinians, mainly civilians, killed so far across the Palestinian territory, according to the latest toll from the Hamas health ministry in Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped leftist CBS News host Margaret Brennan during an interview over the weekend for promoting propaganda from anti-Israel organizations.

Netanyahu made the remarks after Brennan highlighted criticisms from President Joe Biden and leftist NGOs like Doctors Without Borders and Save the Children, which have histories of anti-Israel bias, about the number of people that have been killed during Israel’s military operation against Hamas terrorists responsible for murdering 1,200 Israelis, wounding 5,300+, kidnapping hundreds, and raping numerous women and children during their October 7 terrorist attack.

“I think that any civilian casualty is a tragedy and I don’t say that half heartedly,” Netanyahu said. “I lost a brother in war, I myself was wounded while releasing hostages from a hijacked plane. I’ve lost friends in battle. I know what it means to lose friends and what it means to lose family members. … But this war has been forced upon us by a cynical enemy that not only targets our civilians, has raped, beheaded, burnt babies alive, killed children in front of their parents and parents in front of their children. This enemy not only targets civilians, but hides behind civilians, Palestinian civilians, so they’re committing a double war crime.”

Netanyahu noted that top U.S. military strategists have said that Israel faces an unprecedented task of trying to dismantle a large terrorist group that hides behind an entire population of civilians.

Netanyahu said that if the U.S. faced the equivalent of 20 9/11s, 50,000 Americans slaughtered in one day, with another 10,000 Americans being held hostage that the U.S. would be “doing a hell of a lot more” than Israel was doing inside Gaza.

“And all Americans that I talk to, nearly all, say that,” he added. “So Israel has gone to extraordinary lengths, calling up people, civilians, Palestinians in Gaza, telling them leave your home, sending pamphlets, we have done that effort. Hamas tries to keep them at gunpoint. We’ll clear them out of harm’s way, we’ll complete the job and achieve total victory, which is necessary to give a secure future for Israel, a better future for Gaza, a better future for the Middle East, and a setback for the Iran terror axis. That’s in all our interests. It’s in America’s interest too.”
