(In this video, it appears as if Bibi is boasting about how he undermined the Oslo accords, how they are smashing the Palestinians to undermine Arafat, and how “absurd” it is that “80%” of the U.S. population supports what Israel is doing. The sound is disabled for some reason but it appears as if the English captions sync-up with the body language we can see in the video. Also of note, this video was being talked about and written about prior to it’s translation by people like Jonathan Cook, so my guess is the translation is accurate.)

There is one video Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, must be praying never gets posted on YouTube with English subtitles. To date, the 10-minute segment has been broadcast only in Hebrew on Israel’s Channel 10. [Editor’s note: A version of the Natanyahu video with English subtitles is now available and can be viewed, together with the translated English transcripy, here.]
Its contents, however, threaten to gravely embarrass not only Mr Netanyahu but also the US administration of Barack Obama.
The film was shot, apparently without Mr Netanyahu’s knowledge, nine years ago, when the government of Ariel Sharon had started reinvading the main cities of the West Bank to crush Palestinian resistance in the early stages of the second intifada.
At the time Mr Netanyahu had taken a short break from politics but was soon to join Mr Sharon’s government as finance minister.
On a visit to a home in the settlement of Ofra in the West Bank to pay condolences to the family of a man killed in a Palestinian shooting attack, he makes a series of unguarded admissions about his first period as prime minister, from 1996 to 1999.
