PBS Frontline: "Netanyahu at War"

Tuesday night, PB Frontline presented “Netanyahu at War”, two hours, primary link here.

The documentary started with the assassination of Rabin in 1995, but quickly moved to cover Netanyahu’s “premierships”.  The documentary then focused on Netanyahu’s difficult relationship with President Obama, who tried to put Netanyahu in the position of giving up or backing off on his West Bank settlements if he wanted American aid.  Netanyahu would be further miffed by the president’s “deal” with Iran.

Netanyahu was depicted as arguing that his people had suffered, which was one reason they deserved collectively to keep expanding the settlements.  America doesn’t think that way, hopefully.
