Israel - Netanyahu Asks a BBC Reporter: Are we are living on the same planet ?

Prime Minister Netanyahu admonished BBC reporter Lyse Doucet after she asked whether Israel is interested in restarting talks with the Palestinians. Netanyahu has been pressing for talks with no preconditions for months.

BBC correspondent Lyse Doucet asked a question, suggesting the prime minister needed urging from US Secretary Kerry to restart peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

This visibly irked Netanyahu and he asked her “Are we living on the same planet, Lyse??” He also told her to “get with the program.”

Netanyahu went on to explain how he has long been calling for the very peace talks she had suggested he wasn’t interested in.

The BBC is notoriously biased in its reporting about Israel, so we think you’ll enjoy the way Netanyahu put their reporter in her place.
