How Bibi Frolics in the Winter Snow
The Israeli premier has enraged his enemies again
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, frequently maligned by the international community with allegations of wanton bellicosity, has finally given his critics the indisputable physical evidence they have so craved.
In the picture above, a copy of which is no doubt being shuttled personally to Turtle Bay by blue-helmeted UN couriers, you see an obviously armed Netanyahu ambushing a boy without the basic means to defend himself. Note Netanyahu’s black commando gear (with Burberry misdirection) and the smirk on his face, a telltale vestige of his Sayeret Matkal training, as he prepares to pummel without mercy.
Forget re-election. Netanyahu has just set himself up to lead a coalition of indictees at the Hague.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at email@example.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
