Click on Title for Video - note "full screen" link to the left and below the display screen. I must have missed the excerpts below but they were apparently discussed in the inverview with British Sky News. Even those who aren't particularly sympathetic to Bibi Netanyahu could get a good measure of satisfaction from his interview with the British Television on Wednesday. I guess it can be attributed to his days of studying history at Harvard. The interviewer asked him: "How come so many more Lebanese have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" Natanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?" Interviewer: Why not? Natanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that the war was caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the German blitz on London, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children . Perhaps you have another question?"
