There’s a video going viral on Israeli social media today which shows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanking the Christian minority for beginning to serve in the IDF and blessing them for Christmas.
The video itself does not show up on his official YouTube page, so I’m not sure what the exact date for it is.
According to Netanyahu, some of the Christians who have been drafted have also gotten death threats, and the PM addresses these issues.
But as he does, something utterly bizarre, hilarious and pathetic ensues. He fumbles (02:17) when he has to say “the Jewish State”. It could be in order to not offend these Christians, or because he suddenly realizes the absurdity of it all.
Fast forward to 02:00 minutes (which is where I started to sub).
