Glenn Beck deceptively edited Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu’s comments to Congress to suggest they were a rebuke of President Obama, who purportedly “played into the hands of radicals.” In fact, Netanyahu made clear that his comments were not a denunciation.
BECK: But tonight Benjamin Netanyahu, he addressed a joint session of Congress to make crystal clear where he stands. Listen.
PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU [video clip]: Israel will not return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967.
BECK: Now, because he said that — no, I take that back. Because the President of the United States knowingly or unknowingly has played to the hands of radicals in the Middle East and here in America, he had to say that. And now the world is on a collision course. The world is very clear where Benjamin Netanyahu stands. I have told you where I stand. I stand with Israel. We know where the president stands. Soon, soon, if you don’t know yet, soon you’re gonna be— You’re gonna need to be crystal clear on where you stand. [Fox News, Glenn Beck, 5/24/11]
