Benjamin Netanyahu talks about the British Academic Boycott of Israel

I know not everyone in Israel likes Bibi. And I know people in Europe absolutely hate him. They don't even know why. But then again, they don't need rational reasons, do they?

Anyhow, Bibi is one of Israel's most articulate politicians. He has a sharp tongue during interviews, an impeccable way of speaking, and an assertive no-bullshit attitude. Always calm and posed, even when you can see he's angry. That's the true force of a diplomat. Being outraged, but without needing to raise one's voice. During last year's Lebanon war, he was one of the most vocal defenders of Israel on international screens, along with Dan Gillerman, another strong diplomat.

Here he is again, talking about the British Academic Boycott of Israel.

Come on, Europeans, really, what is it that you don't like about this guy? The fact that he tells things like they are?
In the face of evil, if good men and women sit back and do nothing, evil triumphs
