Reader comment on item: Is Netanyahu Turning Left?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jul 6, 2013 at 13:22

Wasn't it Goebbels who said that if a lie is repeated often enough, it will be believed?

Given that dynamic isn't only restricted to lies, I submit that then the truth is repeated often enough, it will be believed.

There are Arabs who see the efforts of Anwar Sadat, especially the ratcheting down of the military stand off between Israel and Egypt, in a more positive light, than the demonizing of Israel by Nasrallah, and too many others.

So, I submit that Bibi is awake to this, while others sleep and continue to dream delusions.
