With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu locked in a tight race for re-election and dogged by corruption charges, he’s pulling out all the stops and leaving nothing to chance.
In an effort to display his toughness, and possibly his racist views of Black people, a new Netanyahu campaign video highlights a tense confrontation the prime minister had with former US President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
The clip, posted on Netanyahu’s Twitter account, shows an excerpt from a 2016 PBS documentary called “Netanyahu at War” in which Netanyahu is seen, in the words of the narrator, “lecturing Obama, taking a hard line on the peace process.”
Netanyahu’s racist campaign now includes this ad about how he disrespected the first black president in his own house. https://t.co/s3Zfn7Jrw6
