Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused several U.S. media outlets, including CNN, of distorting the truth in recent reports.
Netanyahu specifically referenced reports regarding a new political document from the Palestinian group Hamas. “Ever wonder what fake news is?” Netanyahu asked in a social media posting. “Last week, headlines on CNN, Al Jazeera, and The Guardian all said Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines. The New York Times headline called this moderation.” He continued, “The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel. Great news, right? Well except for one small detail: This is a complete distortion of the truth.”
“It’s bad enough Hamas lies to the world, we don’t also have to lie to ourselves,” Netanyahu said. “Hamas murders women and children. Its launched thousands of missile attacks at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps. So, where does this hate-filled document belong?” he concluded.
Trump has also called CNN and New York Times “fake news” but both media outlets have fought back claiming they only report the truth.
