Netanyahu is totally losing it

According to Haaretz.  Check out this analysis:

At about 3:15 P.M. yesterday, the government’s 100th day in office, political correspondents’ beepers went off. In an unprecedented move, the Prime Minister’s Bureau was inviting the correspondents to a press conference at the Knesset that was slated to begin in 15 minutes. This was the start of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s panicked, disproportionate response to the criticism senior Kadima politicians had leveled at him three hours earlier.

[…]

Netanyahu appears to be suffering from confusion and paranoia. He is convinced that the media are after him, that his aides are leaking information against him and that the American administration wants him out of office. Two months after his visit to Washington, he is still finding it difficult to communication normally with the White House. To appreciate the depth of his paranoia, it is enough to hear how he refers to Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, Obama’s senior aides: as “self-hating Jews.”

“He thought that his speech at Bar-Ilan would become mandatory reading at schools in the United States, and when he realized that Obama gave no such order, he went back to being frustrated,” one of his associates said.

At a recent meeting with with Netanyahu, ostensibly about the understandings with the U.S. on the settlements, former prime minister Ehud Olmert was shocked to see the prime minister focusing mainly on the media. “Is this what he called me in for?” a source close to Olmert quoted him as saying.

What the hell, dude? You called Rahm Emmanuel a self-hating Jew? No wonder you can’t work with the White House! You’re out of your mind!

    Hey Max,

    What are the origins of the “self-hating Jew” accusation? Is it even something specific to Jews or do I just notice it more? Is there a Scriptural origin?

    Curious,

    I thought the Jews were the slaves of Arabs until Moses intervened.
    Then came the US giving them ‘State’ status.
    Where do they go next when China overtakes US?
