The staged photos of Netanyahu’s stumbling at sea

(originally from Haaretz)


Israeli censorship is second to none, at least as good as North Korea’s.


Every journalist working within Israel is required to be accredited by the Israeli Government Press Office. Most applications are just formal, but the office is allowed to deny applications based on political or security considerations



Netanyahu was on a military boat, with the head of the Israeli military, the chances of him having bodyguards and only officially accredited photographers are certain. And the photos are taken from close up. They are not long telephoto shots from afar.

So the pictures are as good as “official press releases” from the Prime Minister’s office. Even if the Navy pilot was instructed to accelerate just as he was to board another boat.

.The pics from:
Mao Zedong’s 1966 Swim of the Yangtze


That begs the question: What is the message?


The Prime Minister of Israel has encountered forces far bigger than him, he did not forsee danger and the military has stepped in to save him. He cannot be trusted to lead in a time of danger.

Which is quite the opposite to Mao Tse Tung.

And what candidates are there for the forces of danger?

Fellow Jews, Arab enemies, Russia, China, the US administration? Maybe it is just the whole world.

The last time he was Prime Minister, Israel was the secret emperor of the world. Now she is waning.
