Netanyahu: Rush Limbaugh of Leaders
Yael Wissner-Levy, Times of Israel
Much like the American rightwing pundit Rush Limbaugh, Bibi Netanyahu has taken to relying solely on rhetoric to gain support from the hawkish right, while discrediting himself with his claims. Limbaugh is a partisan shock jock whose over-the-top outlandish statements on his radio show isolate him from the American mainstream – but that is exactly his strategy. A partisan pundit can sit in a corner office and preach ridiculous prophecies. A world leader cannot.
