The editor of the Jerusalem Post claims that Prime Minister Netanyahu told him that Israel “has two main enemies”:

And I thought he was going to talk about, you know, Iran, maybe Hamas. He said, “It’s The New York Times and Haaretz.” He said, “They set the agenda for an anti-Israel campaign all over the world.”

I’m hopeful that Bibi has at least hastened the day when I can buy a t-shirt with “Haaretz” spelled in the Times‘ classic Gothic lettering. All the kids in Brooklyn will be wanting one.
