The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv on Wednesday reported that Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu told an audience at Bar Ilan university that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks had been beneficial for Israel.It must be a true quote. Only Netanyahu is stupid enough to say that "we are benefiting from one thing" and then cite two things.
"We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq," Ma'ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events "swung American public opinion in our favor."
I've just quickly googled - 9/11 "good for Israel" Netanyahu - and it's all over the web.
Remember you didn't hear it here first folks!
