Sometimes Bibi is hard to take

Every once in a while, I am struck by how the Prime Minister of a nuclear armed country whose leaders have openly and often discussed attacking a neighboring country for the past ten years can stand up before the United Nations and call that neighbor a menace to the world because it might develop nuclear weapons or might attack the Prime Minister's country.

On the other hand, it is fascinating that Netanyahu and his supporters seem to be completely unaware that there might be anything hypocritical about their position. Even if you agree with their stance that Iran represents a threat to the world community, it seems pretty obvious that the Israeli Prime Minister is a terrible messenger for that particular message.

Also, does Bibi really think that his grump offensive is going to do anything to counter Hassan Rouhani happy face?
