Netanyahu Cancels Meeting After German FM Refuses to Snub Israeli Leftist NGOs, Haaretz

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled his meeting with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Tuesday after the latter refused Netanyahu’s demand that he not meet with two leftwing NGOs, Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem. According to Der Spiegel, the meeting was canceled by Netanyahu because the German minister wanted “to meet with critics of the Israeli government.” Sources within the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed that the meeting, set for 5 P.M., will not take place. The prime minister’s bureau issued a statement regarding Netanyahu’s refusal to meet with Gabriel.

Netanyahu’s War on Whistleblowers Damns the IDF and the Occupation, Haaretz

Chemi Shalev writes, “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is exploiting this situation and exacerbating it 10 times over. He is waging open war against organizations such as Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem, in order to blame them and absolve himself of responsibility for international condemnation of the occupation, and in order to incite against leftists – as is his wont….The bottom line is that, far more than the nongovernmental organizations he attacks or the reports about IDF misconduct that he condemns, it is Netanyahu himself who is sullying the name of the army, testifying about the evils of the occupation and corroborating the worst claims of the international boycott movement.”
