Israel protested against enlisting Netanyahu as he is an elected PM, but ignored that it kidnaps freely-elected Palestinian MPs
Israeli occupation authorities kidnap and sentence freely-elected Palestinian MPs because they do not want to see them in the parliament
German newspaper included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in list of “The Seven Craziest Leaders in the World.”
Hamburger Morgenpost featured Netanyahu along with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.
It also counted in the list of craziest leaders of the world along with the Israeli prime minister the Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte, Syrian regime President Bashar al-Assad and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe.
The German newspaper wrote against a picture for Netanyahu that he is promoting illegal settlement policies and that he tried to convince the former US President Barack Obama to attack Iran.
Putting aside freedom of speech, which is not applied on Israel, Jews and Zionists, the Israeli foreign minister expressed its anger with the including Netanyahu in the list.
Ignoring the Israeli kidnapping of freely-elected Palestinian MPs and putting them in jails for no reason but because they are not the type of Palestinians that Israel and US do not want to see in the Palestinian parliament, the Israeli embassy in Germany criticised the German newspaper.
“The fact that they put an elected prime minister… alongside some of the worst dictators in the world, reveals more than anything the newspaper’s level of understanding of what is happening today in the world,” the Israeli embassy said.
Israeli officials pushed German officials to ask the newspaper to take Netanyahu out of the list and the newspaper did.
The newspaper also apologised. “Including Netanyahu in the list was a mistake, and we apologise for it,” the newspaper announced on Saturday night.
