Clips From Last Night: Exclusive with PM Netanyahu

On last night's "Piers Morgan Tonight", Piers Morgan had an exclusive interview with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the current state of the Middle East. "Gadhafi is no friend of Israel," he said. "He's not friend of the Jewish people. And I think his people can see now, he's no friend of the Libyan people."

Piers also asked Netanyahu about the murder of the family in the West Bank. Here was his response:

Netanyahu told Piers, "We're now looking for the killers. We'll find them."

Watch tonight for more from Israel and Saturday when the Netanyahu interview will be replayed in full.

    Why did Piers keep interrupting Prime Minister Netanyahu? Not only was it very annoying and disrespectful, but also we wanted to hear what the Prime Minister had to say.

      I agree with Melissa. I was so embarrassed when Piers kept interrupting the Prime Minister. I was also embarrassed that Piers Morgan would be so presumptuous as to claim to speak for the majority when Piers shockingly began giving advice to the Prime Minister on policy decisions which have far reach consequences that Piers Morgan cannot possibly understand in the way that Netanyahu so intimately and wisely understands. Piers Morgan seemed rude, unsophisticated, and I am positive he made the Prime Minister wonder why he had even granted CNN an interview.
      I was very impressed with the Israeli Prime Minister's keen intelligence, wisdom, and graceful handling of the shockingly rude and embarrassing interview.

        I'm no friend to Palestinians but they do have the right to leave as a human being and have the right to have a state. I'm no friend to Israel but they deserve to live in peace in Israel. This is the first time I really enjoyed watching an interview that made any Israeli official hard to respond. I applaud Piers on his remarkable job and I wish that all others would have the same strength to follow in his footsteps to any leaders in the world without the fear that they may lose their job. Yes, I agree with Maya, He did interrupt PM a few times to PM, but he did that just to make sure that he hears his questions answered truthfully. Again, I applaud Piers and I hope he will keep doing a wonderful job in this path and also hope that he will interview Hamas leader with the same direct questions as well. Good Luck piers, job well done.

        To all of you that angry with Piers about yesterday interview should consider thinking that the interview was not about being rude, it was all about hearing the right answers. I know most of you probably are Jew, and I don't blame you being angry, but how long we going to have the right Israeli PM to have the balls to find the peace with Palestinians. If we don't have this type’s of direct questions to any Israeli officials, we will never have the right answers. PM Netanyahu was elected for a second time and he is repeating the same mistakes as he did before. Basically, his not interested in peace, he just interested to humiliate the Palestinians until they give up their homeland. I applaud Pier's for his courage and honesty I can only wish him success in his future interviews. Keep up the good work. My Jewish friends before you are critic to Piers please read the history and applaud Piers.

      Melissa,

      You are 100% right! Piers wasn't interested in what Netanyahu had to say. He kept firing questions and was quite abrasive. Interviewers are supposed to be non-biased but his clearly showed through.

        I like Piers Morgan BUT the interview last night with Prime Minister Netanyahu was NOT his best interview. Piers constantly interrupted, did not speak to the Prime Minister with respect, and asked inappropriate questions that were not for public knowledge. Prime Minister Netanyahu was very gracious in the way he replied to Piers. I suggest that if Piers is going to act like a bully, perhaps he is in the wrong job.

      In the future, perhaps if CNN journalists disagree with their interviewee they can speak either before or after instead of during the answers to their questions. Mr. Morgan paused just long to pretend he was listening and then interrupted with his own opinions/agenda. It was extremely grating as I wanted to hear the rest of the answer!
      I've never seen him be this rude and disrespectful with any of his other guests. I won't be watching him again.

        As if Netanyahu didn't have an "agenda"? Interviews of controversial political figures are worthless unless they ask pointed questions on the issues. This was not an interview of the Pillsbury bake-off winner. I thought Morgan didn't ask enough tough questions. He made only loose references to the 44 years of international condemnation of Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine. Which btw, has also been condemned by every US President since the 1970s.

      Totally agree. I can't imagine Morgan being that disrespectful and rude to Obama or any other PM or President. I haven't watched Morgan previously, but I have to say I was really underwhelmed with his depth of knowledge and questions. I would have liked to have referred to him as Mr. Morgan here, but, alas, he fall short of earning that respect.

      Pier Morgan was brillant; he was not overly aggresive. He was tough, bold, direct. The Prime Minister was great, cool, answered with sharp wit. I think of all the interviews Pier had since he took Larry King chair, this is number one in my judgment.

        Piers Morgan's arrogant, rude, and inappropriate behavior in the interview of Mr. Netanyahu was expected. He was, after all, born and raised in Ireland, and is obviously heavily biased towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I had not watched his interviews until now, and I surely will not be watching them in the future.

        To AJ and others:
        Number of issued UN resolutions against Israel does not prove anything. Unfortunatelly it only tells the sad story what UN has become ... I wonder if people know that Palestinians (and other) Arabs simply do not recognize Israel as a state and often speak about their "Palestine" as the whole territory from Jordan to the Medit.sea (you can see that for example in the textbooks on geography in schools). Is it very sad that the propaganda of hatred against Israel is taken as a reality and truth and even like a justice :-(

        AJ, This was in our local paper dated Sunday, March 20, 2011..........Rockets fired..........Jerusalem, Israel – Palestinian militants in Gaza fired more than 50 rockets into Israel on Saturday, the heaviest barrage in two years, Israel officials said. A Hamas official was killed and four civilians were wounded when Israel hit back with tank fire and air strikes. (Your World in Five Minutes by the Associated Press).

        Now, if Israel could be held responsible for some nut job trying to burn down the Al Aqsa mosque, why can't the Palestinian Authority be held responsible for allowing this?

        I wonder if there will be a UN Resolution comdemning this? Don't hold your breath people!

        Hmmmmmm, maybe the Palestinians watched the interview with Mr. Netanyahu too, think this could be their answer to Pier's suggestion that Netanyahu go to Ramallah?

        This is a good site that shows the character assination of Israel by the Palestinians:

        What a pathetic post. Obviously, from a biased, Israel hater. You forgot to post the UN resolutions against the Palestinians and Hamas for their terrorist and murderous acts against Israeli civilians in the past 60 years. You also forgot to post the UN resolutions against the neighboring Arab dictators, who oppress their citizens, kill and imprison their political opponents, and treat their female citizens as sub-human. Perhaps you are a neo-nazi, perhaps an Al-Qaida sympathizer, but surely not an intellectual, or a clear thinker.

      I am watching the interview right now and I just created an account just to say the same thing. Pierce was annoying, interrupting everytime and throwing in an opinion as if he was a master of world affairs and knows more than the prime minister. I THINK CNN SHOULD CAREFULLY REVIEW THIS INTERVIEW AND SEE THAT HE IS NOT FIT TO BE A HOST OF ANY SHOW other than "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT". It seemed like he was trying too hard to live to a LARRY KING standard...and seemed so out of place sometimes asking same questions which the PM had already answered. I give kudos to the prime minister for remaining calm and not calling him out for his rude interruptions.

      To all who were not happy with the posting I will ask you the same question Pier asked Bibi Netanyahu. Will you want your family to live in Gaza ? No..... Non of us would. Why ? because it has been turned into an open air prison camp. 80% of people below poverty line, 70% unemployment, no proper electricity or water. Very limited vaccinations and education for children. I challenge anyone of the defenders of Bibi Netanyahu here to go live one week in Gaza....just one week and then you can post anything you want here.

        AJ posted "I challenge anyone of the defenders of Bibi Netanyahu here to go live one week in Gaza….just one week and then you can post anything you want here." I have found that it does not take a week to become appalled at Israel's treatment of fellow human beings; it usually takes 24-48 hours, and the visitor need only visit the West Bank. Even though Israelis are raised from birth with anti-Arab propaganda and Apartheid, its press has more freedom than the US press. At some level, I sympathize with Americans who are upset with Mr Morgan; they just dont know any better. They live with distorted facts and re-written history from e.g., OJ Simpson's old lawyer Allan "The Case for Israel" Dershowitz. This book has been fully refuted by honest Israeli historians and of course Norman Finkelstein.

        AJ, The Palestinian Authority has been stealing money for decades that has been meant for the Palestinian people. Arab countries, church groups in the U.S., the list is extensive!

        That's why Yasser Arafat's wife could afford to live in Paris and Switzerland!

        Don't try and lay blame on Israel, it has been said that if all the money that was meant for the Palestinian people had been used for their betterment they could be living in a place that looks like Beverly Hills instead of the bullet riddled slums they live in.

        I guess body bombers and the procurement of bomb making material is much more important to the PA than the health and welfare of their own people.

        Lets stick with the facts. There is no point getting emotional or personal. Isreal is the occupying force and thus has clear obligations towards the Palestinians under International law. Only when Isreal decides to follow thru with UN resolutions and leave West Bank and allow Palestinians to freely and openly create their own state as stated in "The road map" it cannot absolve itself of its obligations.
        Noone, thank you for your comparison of Palestinians to Darfur, Iran and China (though I think Gaza is in much worst condition than China or Iran due to the blockade) Dont you think that Isreali's air, sea and land blockade has anything to do with their condition ? Even concrete and building material for construction under supervision by United Nations (which was btw needed to rebuild the 5000 homes destroyed and 50,000 damaged by IDF during Gaza war) was not allowed into Gaza. Please read the Geneva convention and more specifically article 4 for more details on collective punishment! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Geneva_Convention

      I completely agree with Melissa.We also wanted to hear the comments of Prime Minister but Piers´s rudeness destroyed the interview.Looks like he forgot that he is not on some Talent Show.This is the first time we had seen his program and if this is the way he conducts his interviews....then we are not interested in his program anymore.His behaviour reflected signs of unprofessional.

    I very much enjoyed your interview with Netanyahu. I don't watch nights that you have say the Kardashians or stupid celebrities but I did watch the night you had the older actresses and you did an excellent job and it was interesting. You are light years better than Larry King. I stopped watching him at least a decade ago. I love anything British especially Masterpiece Theatre. Keep up the good work and interesting interviews where we actually get enough time to really learn something. P.S, I am a right wing conservative christian women!

    Excellent interview, probing questions yet not threatening, you put your guest at ease and know when to redirect the question if they stray, you shined way more in this interview than the other boring guests they throw at you. Try to stay where you belong, you have more to offer than you've showed in the past. Again great interview, everyone can take what they want from it as you kept the bias at bay.

    I am happy with the interview done by Piers Morgan. He let the PM off the hook on real tough questions. There was no mention of the 1967 boarders and the UNGA/10791 which is quite clear. The concessions / onus is on the Israelis and they do not like it one bit. The PM made some reference to "flooding Israel with refugees", that flood is made up of displaced people that were born and lived in Palestine now known as Israel. It is good to see this on CNN but I suspect that the Anti-word will begin to be thrown about.

    Disagree with this if you like but these are FACTS not my opinion.

    UNGA10791/A/63/L.35 26 Nov 08

    12.Calls upon Israel, the occupying Power, to comply strictly with its obligations under international law, including international humanitarian law, and to cease all of its measures that are contrary to international law and unilateral actions in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, that are aimed at altering the character, status and demographic composition of the Territory, including via the de facto annexation of land, and thus at prejudging the final outcome of peace negotiations; This included Israel’s construction of a wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including in and around East Jerusalem.

    The GA/10791 called for a two state settlement on the 1967 borders, East Jerusalem for the Palestinian State (west for Israel), and a “just” resolution to the refugee problem (”compromise")164 in favour to 7 against 3 abstentions.

    The solution is not complicated. It is complicated for the Israeli government to now tell the Jewish people that they have to give back this property as it really does not belong to them which in essenence is the heart of the UNGA10791 vote, that is why the reference is made to "The Occupied Palestinian Territory"

The land that has already been given away will be recovered by the Jews.

        Megan, I don't know where you get your hateful information from, but for you to know, Israel is the only democracy in the middle east. Israel has a law of protecting lives. For example, Hamas makes Palestininas to hide weapons in their houses knowing that Israel won't drop bombs in residencial areas, and if they reject they will be killed (The Palestininans). So since Israel knows that, before they go to these homes to clear the weapons , they call these families to evacuate their homes. Many Palestinians have been treated in Israeli hospitals. Do you think any Israeli can go to Palestine without their heads chopped off? Israel has been so patient with it's enemies that no other country has ever been. With all do respect check other sources to get the truth. Anger takes most of your inteligence and common sense away.

They bulldoze Palestinian homes, burn their orchards, divert their water, threaten and intimidate, all under the approving eye of the Israeli tanks and IDF soldiers.

    Hmmm...I wonder why the Palestinian's murdered the Israeli settlers...let's see...probably because the Israeli government is creating a holocaust-like life for the Palestinian's where they are unable to leave their houses in fear that their house will no longer be there by the time they get home. By the way, calling the Palestinian's terrorists disgusts me. They barely have human rights. They have tried peaceful protest and have seen family members killed or thrown in jail only to face years of torture so SOME Palestinian's have turned to the Israeli Zionists type of violence. Hey Netanyahu, how about you become a man of his word and create peace by staying on your own land and by stopping the Israeli government from allowing settlements and this crazy segregated world you have going on over there.

    Another thing, if you have a problem with Iran or someone near you..deal with it. The U.S already contributes $3.5 BILLION per year to your horrific oppression of the Palestinians, DON'T MAKE US DO ALL YOUR DIRTY WORK.

      You need to read a history book. Israel (formerly Palestine) has always been the Jews ancestral home. They want to live in peace–unlike the Palestinians. Who butchers babies and children in cold blood? The Israelis are never the aggressors but only respond to violent attackers. Why have peace efforts been rejected by Palestinians? Because they don't want peace–only Israel's destruction. Piers Morgan was a poor interviewer–too biased and abrasive to be effective.

Whether right or wrong, there were people living in those areas when the Israeli government put in effect all kinds of crazy checkpoints, road blocks, even WALLS.

      And since everyone thinks I'm stupid and don't know my history...The world wanted the Jews to have a homeland for a long time but it wasn't until after WWII that France and Britain decided to actually divide Palestinian land up into the Jewish land and then Palestine. Israel wasn't declared until 1948 and then the settlements started and there are millions of Palestinian refugees living in camps Lebanon unable to have jobs or education.

    How unfortunate to see Netanyahu dragged out the tired, old, untrue "no partner for peace" phrase – just as MJ Rosenberg, a former AIPAC newletter editor, had recently predicted he would! http://politicalcorrection.org/fpmatters/201103100007

    The Palestine Papers revealed that it was, in fact, Israel that proved to be "no partner for peace." According to the papers, Palestinians offered concessions that went way beyond what would have made for any kind of viable "state" and self-determination…yet Israel still refused and pressed for more.
    http://aliabunimah.posterous.com/the-palestine-papers

    Israel has shown it doesn’t want "peace" – not until it accomplishes its P-I-e-c-e plan and finishes taking prime arable land and water from Palestinians in the Occupied West Bank and Occupied East Jerusalem (and, who knows, perhaps some of Gaza’s natural gas, via "slant drilling"?).

    The Arab peace offer of 2002 (aka Saudi Initiative) remains on the table; yet Israel refuses it. That plan – for normalized relations and peace if Israel would draw its borders on the pre-1967 "Green Line" - was offered by all of the Arab states, and the majority if not all of the non-Arab Islamic states. It was in the past few years also ratified by Hamas!

It is about challenging with calm, clear and highly intelligent questions. Fortunately, Prime Minister Netanyahu is extremely intelligent but deserves a better interviewer.

    My comment has nothing to do with the politics of the discussion or the substance that Prime Minister Netanyahu attempted to talk about. I say "attempted" because the interviewer was unbelievably unprofessional. Piers Morgan demonstrated his lack of objectivety and predetermined bias, two characteristics of an inept and essentialy unfair interviewer. More importantly, I was shocked at his rudeness. I could not believe that a third-rate media hack would have such disdain for any head of state. His tone and repeated interruptions of a Prime Minister – of any country, demean him and by extenstion, CNN. Larry King, Anderson Cooper, Barbara Walters, Oprah and a host of others would have been more civil and professional.

Then he interviewed the Palestinian Ambassador and coddled him. In his follow up with Mr. Dershowitz he did what everyone seems to want to do these days: Place the burden of peace and inability to arrive at peace strictly on Israel and PM Netanyahu. Mr. Dershowitz rightly pointed to Mr. Morgan the history of negotiations between the two parties and the Palestinians refusal to cut a deal. If Mr. Morgan wants to build an audience, he better master the facts before he conducts interviews with heads of state.

    I was so disgusted at Piers Morgans treatment of Israel's president
    Benjamin Netanyahu. The Palestinian charade has been well known
    for years and to see a simple minded person being rude to an obviously
    intelligent,informed man like Mr. Netanyahu is just too much.
    I thought Mr. Netanyahu handled himself perfectly amid all the stupid
    questions posed by Mr. Morgan.

      Is more like Palestinian apologist like you playing with Palestinian victim cards twisting their words around as if they wanted to have Israel as partner for peace. The only Peace Palestinian wants is when the whole Israel is under their control where Jews and other non-muslim live under Muslim thumb. Nevertheless we have people like Karen Armstrong, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter and John L Esposito who are an apologist for Islamist and these so-called Palestinians.

If today is 1940s he would convert to catholicism just to save himself from holocaust and he couldn't care if he 6 million were murdered by the Nazi. Thats who Finkelstein is.

    There simply is no such thing as Palestinian "terrorists". It is THEIR homes being bulldozed, THEIR land being stolen on a daily basis for 44 years. Enough is enough! 500,000 illegal occupiers have to be removed from the occupied territories and Israel has to return to the 1967 borders. And THAT'S how you end terrorism!

      Memphis says: CNN International has promoted it's new service in Arabic, another older idea Inside thr Middle East, (they keep showing thr Pre-Protest pieces, like everything is just "hunkie-dory" inside these regimes", 100's of hours of what's doing in the Middle-East, no acknowledgment of an Israel being amongst those nations. For once they put in 1 hr of this Prime Minister to weigh in on what's happening in his neighborhood. I speculate, that all of these societies see that you csn peacefully change your leadership, (though it can be frustratiing) and have simply said, "That's for us!" Still, if you are a cable customer, CNN is the only service worth watching, especially for natural disasters where the presenter doesn't weigh-in politically. I hear that Dish-Network has an Israel-Broadcasting Authority package, but then ones Hebrew has to be really broadcast worthy, mine is just barely there, & I need the fast cable Internet service. The discussion above is descending I to a bar-room-brawl. Still, I count this as a heartening outcome, from the single hour out thousands of aired on the rest of the Middle-East. Memphis

    I was overjoyed to hear Piers Morgan would be interviewing someone of substance rather than drug addicts like Charlie Sheen, who he was nice to....I was infuriated and had trouble watching him cut Mr. Netanyahu off. So unprofessional. I didn't care to hear Morgan's views and did want to hear what the Prime Minister had to say. I got the impression Morgan was anti-semetic and pro Palestinian. But his rude interview style was unbelievable. CNN should definitely find someone else to fill Larry King's shoes. At least he was curteous and unbiased in his interviews. His questions were 3rd rate and he spent his time interrupting and trying to antagonize the Prime Minister. Israel belongs to the Jews. Read your Bible. Israel wins in the end and shows a great deal of integrity in the mean time. Look at how many people have contributed to society and most of the best of the best in entertainment and science, etc., are Jews. I dread the day the US quits backing Israel. You can disagree all you want but that doesn't change what the truth is. Once again, Piers, find another job.

    Piers, if you're reading these remarks, be advised this discussion has been invaded by Zionist propagandists and shills called "sayanuim" who troll the internet for stories on Israel and related issues. Their intention is to spin and manipulate public opinion and perceptions about Israel to reflect positively on Israel and negatively on its detractors.

    They disparage any criticism using all the age old propaganda techniques you see employed here. They are hired by The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and others are volunteers (sayanim) for AIPAC, ADL and JIDF (Jewish Internet Defense Force). In other words they are a highly organized propaganda army.

    Listen CNN. You wish to occupy neutral ground between liberal MSNBC and Conservative Fox. Hiring Piers Morgan to do a non fluff interview shows not only his lack of ability but why you have become a lightweight in news, opinion and are no longer a leading cable news channel. Piers should stick to film and TV show personality interviews for which his interview - so called - of Israel's PM furnihed clear proof he is better suited for. Serious nterviewers need to know history, be informed of the subject matter and know how to listen to the interviewee not show his own ignorance of the subject matter and certainly not constantly interrupt to show how smart he is which only in this interview demonstrated the reverse.

    This leader of an apartheid racist regime should not be welcome on American soil.

    As reported by Maa'riv,Haar'etz and Reuter , while addressing Bar Ilan University in April 2008 Mr.Netanyahu had this to say about 9/11 attacks;

    ' 9/11 has been ver good for Israel'. 'We are benefitting from attacks on Twin Towers and Pentagon and America struggling in Iraq'.

    His regime arbitrarily rejects our political leadership's 'humble' requests and the demands of international community to freeze illegal settlements. Under our blanket protection the regime in Israel gets away with murder state terrorism. Its a hurdle to the peace process.
    Ask morally upstanding and courageous Jews in Israel like Gush Shalom and many other organizations. They will tell you that Israeli state policies and unconditional support by US work against the interests of both Americans & Jews.
    Ask highly respected Jewish public intellectuals like Naom Chomsky, Uri Avnery and MJ Rosenberg or brave patriotic Jews from Jewish Voice for Peace, JStreet or distinguished Rabbis from Rabbis of North America for Peace and Americans would learn the truth and see thru the fog of propaganda created by Israeli state machinery and their supporters.

    Piers you have gone where very few western broadcasters / journalists have gone; Bob Simon from CBS is the only other one that comes to mind. Some misinformed viewers might interpret your interviews as Anti-Jewish but that is totally absurd. Keep up the good work.

    One of the key elements, if not “The key element”, to mid-east peace is the United States Government’s foreign policy towards Israel. The second element is the Israeli government posture in saying they want peace but instead engage in actions which are counter productive. Hamas, the P.A and splinter groups within The OPT do not help their cause either by appearing divided and engaging in counter productive actions and must recognize Israel’s right to exist just as Israel must also recognize A Palestinian State and its right to exists within the 1967 boarders including East Jerusalem and the right of return and Gaza.

    Once the US continues to vote in favour of Israel at the UNGA’s annual vote on the CORE ISSUES there would never be and end to this madness. The US has to be the leader here if there is to be a real peace and a two state solution.
    Mr.Obama, The time is now, do not let this historical opportunity slip away. It’s time for US and Canada to vote with the Rest of the world on “The Peaceful Settlement of The Palestinian Question” to say, settle this issue on the 1967 boarders and make your peace, put away that Veto pen and do not abstain, but so far weather it’s a democratic or republican administration in charge the voting on Palestine remains the same, shameful.

    In the diplomatic world there are lots of talks and polite banter but there also has been over 40 years of talks, on and off as it were and 60 years or war. Too many INNOCENTS have died on both sides and will continue to die unless this is resolved, post haste.

    When Mr.Obama was elected there seemed to be a new glimmer of hope for the region, He said that “my administration will aggressively seek a lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians". but that little ray of light is fading fast as per the last vote at the UN, no change in the status quo, more of the same old song just a different singer.

    I am not defending terrorist activities, suicide bombings or rocket attacks and I would agree that these are horrible acts unleashed on innocent people but the sword cuts both ways here. The Israelis conduct terrorist acts and indiscriminate bombings of their own, maybe not suicide as a weapon of choice but terrorize the Palestine population just the same, but that stuff is said to be them defending themselves, remember Israel’s –
    – “Break the Bones Policy”?

    Ah yes I forgot torture is or was legal in Israel.

    There are many things that can be seen or referred to as “Obstacles to Peace”

    – East Jerusalem
    – The Separation Wall
    – Settlements continued building of Illegal Settlements in the OPT
    – US policy re Israel
    – 1967 boarders
    – Refugees, right of return
    The answer is all too simple not COMPLICATED AT ALL. If the Israelis are so confident that they want this peace then, put your offer where your mouth is. Go to the UN and announce that you are willing to accept peace AS OUTLINED by the UNGA in “The Peaceful Settlement of the Palestine Question” Give the Palestinians one week to accept and if they don’t then rescind the offer. The entire world would see you truly as approaching the Palestinians with an outstretched hand and not a clenched fist. The Palestinians would be fools not to accept this offer as it is the heart of UNSC 242 and UNGA’s annual vote. If they accept the next step would be statehood and a welcome end to all these years of protracted war, bitter hatred, contempt for one another and finger pointing.

    Two very bitter pills here for Israel would be, removing all settlers and settlements from the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the return of all displaced refugees

Right to Return: About how many millions of people are you talking? And what about those Jewish refugees from Arab countries (You sure know about them)? What about their compensation or return? As for UN resolution (from 1967) it states besides other things that Israel has got a right to safe and defendable borders. Where are those? Why are people talking again and again about the right of Palestinian Arabs for their state while forgetting to ask the recognition of the State of Israel by Palestinians and many other Arab countries?

    We were shocked by the rudeness and abrasiveness and hostility that was exhibited by Piers Morgan towards P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu. It seems Piers had one sided question, as to why, Israel doesn't make peace. This morning, we hear on the news Hamas bombed Israel. Isn't that enough of an answer. To say that Israel doesn't want Peace, is ridiculous.
    There are many many people in Israel that are suffering, yet, struggles to be the best in technology, medicine and other inventions that are beneficial to everyone. Including the best hospitals in Israel taking in Arabs from Gaza when they can't get medical help there.
    Stop blaming Israel, if you haven't been there, you will realize how tiny this Country is, and its been Judah for many centuries dating to the bible. But if propaganda is spread every day, people start believing it. God bless Israel.

      First thing to understand is that this was a REPRISAL to another of israel's assassinations of Hamas leaders.

      When was the last time Hamas assassinated any leaders of the israeli government?

      The second thing to understand is Hamas are Palestinians and they are fighting to free the Palestinian West Bank and East Jerusalem from ILLEGAL OCCUPATION by 500,000 imported orthodox jewish "settler" fanatics.

      This is an action that israel's propaganda machine will spin as a "terrorist attack"..but it cannot be denied that Palestinians are fighting a 63 year old policy of LAND GRABBING that has been condemned by every US President since Carter...dozens and dozens of UN Resolutions and the international community.

      But as long as jews own and operate the media in America and Europe you will be reminded on a daily basis of Palestinian "terrorists", and NO mention will ever be made on any consistant basis to the theft of Palestinian land by zionist jews in israel.

    I thought 'Piers' was rude and disrespectful to the PM. What nonsense going on about 'don't you want to be a hero and what about your legacy.' He has no true understanding between these peoples. It was obvious whose side he was on,
    and it wasn't Israel.

    Jo why did piers needed to be on Israel side anyway? You sound like one dimensional person who does not understand the other side. Lets get one thing clear, ISRAEL IS THE OCCUPIER OF PALESTINIAN LAND. I am a muslim and I have watched these two side be in this dispute for most of my life. Now please understand me that I do believe that palestinians are not the innocent party in this mess either. But Israel must return the land. I have come to the grips with the fact that until Palestinian land is given back to the Palestinian people. I do not see any peace there.
    I was watching Alan dershowitz on Morgan,s show last night and said something to the fact that reason Yasir Arafat never made peace with israel was that Arafat was scared that his people would kill him. I remember that Arafat did make peace with the Jewish folks during Bill Clinton's office days. And Alan forgot that It was then Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin who was gunned down by a jewish vigilante. Palestinians did not kill Arafat. Infact Arafat died at peace.
    All I am saying is that there are mean and nasty people on BOTH sides that do not love peace. You just can not blame the Palestinians as a whole as I as a Muslim believe that there are peace loving beautiful people on the jewish side.

      Noone wants P.Morgan to be pro-Israeli, but as a journalist he should be on no-side. He should simply lead the interview for viewers. What "Palestinian land" you are refering to? In 1947 UN agreed the division of Palestina Mandate area into 2 states – Jewish and Arabic. Arabs there in the area never accepted this decision, so they did not created their own state either. Until today Palestinian (and other) Arabs do not recognize the State of Israel. That is the main obstacle to the peace process. Should Israel support the state of Palestinian Arabs and forget about Arabs not recognizing Jewish legitimacy of Israel? Also it was Arafat who refused to fulfill the agreement signed then in 1993. Unfortunatelly many Palestinians (and other) Arabs do not care about their well-being and independency but only about the destruction of Israel. And what surprise Israel does not want to allow that.

        Hoe often we hear comments like "Until today Palestinian (and other) Arabs do not recognize the State of Israel."
        1. One cannot recognize a country that expands its territory on a daily basis. If Palestinian (and other) Arabs were to recognize the "State of Israel," does that mean accepting stolen territory?
        2. When is Israel going to recognize a State of Palestine? Why do Israel's supporters never ask themselves this simple question?

      Thanks Suahil for this reasonable post.

      As yourself, I have watched the dispute for most of my life. However unlike you, as an Israeli I have also participated in it. I'll start by saying that your bottom-line is correct: There are both nasty and peace loving beautiful people on both sides of the fence. Most Israelis and most Palestinians, like everyone else on this planet, just want to provide for their families in dignity and raise their children in peace.

      For some reason which I can't fathom, people tend to focus on what tears us apart, instead of on that which brings us together. For the extremists in this forum, I'd like to provide some reasonable insight.

      Mike claims that, and I quote: There simply is no such thing as Palestinian "terrorists".
      Unlike Mike, I don't deal in absolutes, and I think that there are many grey areas in any issue. I can understand that one man's "terrorist" is another's "freedom-fighter", it's all an issue of perspective. However, I think that most people can agree: The deliberate targeting of innocent civilians is in-fact terrorism. Mike and Megan may claim that Israeli settlers are not "innocent", but I would reply that the victims of the most recent home invasion were children, ages 11, 4 and 3 months. If deliberately stabbing a baby in her crib for poilitical or religious reasons isn't terrorism, then what is???

      To be fair, I will offer some criticism of Israel and Netanyahu as well:
      Ths Israeli talking point that there is no humanitarian crisis in the Gaza strip, holds no water. Israelis have heard this line so much and so often that many find it easy to believe. As a former Israeli combat soldier who served 2 tours of duty in Gaza I personally observed horrific and sub-human living conditions, particularly in the Khan-Younis refugee camp. The stench rising from the alleyways between the dense piles of tin homes was so unbearable, I literally had to put my ear-plugs in my nose to avoid vomiting. Saying that I was a strong supporter of the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and the dismantlement of the Gaza setllements, would be a severe understatement ...

      That being said, it's also important to take a wider hitorical view of the Palestinian refugee situation.
      Fact: The Khan Younis refugee camp was formed in 1948 under Egyptian control. Israel only occupied the Gaza strip in 1967. Another Fact: There are any number of additional Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and the West-Bank. Over the course of history, especially after WWII, millions of people were displaced from their homes and borders were redrawn. They weren't rejected and placed in camps – They were integrated into their new countries. In contrast, the Palestinians who were displaced during the 1948 war, were rejected by neighboring ARAB countries. Israel didn't create the refugee problem, but as a democratic and free society, we should have done better instead of making it worse.

      I find much of the rhetoric on this page abhorrent. Playing the blame-game doesn't solve problems, it exacerbates them. There is plenty of blame to go around on both sides and pointing fingers at one-another will achieve absolutely nothing. The real key to the solution is good will and good faith. I'm hoping that those of us, the younger generation born after 1967 on both sides of the conflict, who don't automatically fall in line with historic dogma, will find the way to succeed where our parents have failed.

      I appreciate your point-of-view, and applaud your recognition that I have one too.

      Peace from Jerusalem,
      Ilan

    It was embarrassing to watch Piers Morgan’s interview with the Prime Minister of Israel. I was embarrassed of behalf all American people for the way pierce kept interrupting the Prime Minister and interjecting his own view. This is not the American interview style, it may British; regardless this style of interview may be OK when Piers had Charlie Sheen on his show and may be even necessary to stop Charlie’s nonsensical blabbering but, to be so rude as to interrupt people such as the Prime Minister of Israel or veteran interviewers such as Barbara Walters is inappropriate and disrespectful. Please don’t do this anymore Piers it is very annoying.

    Shirin repeated a line that Israelis teach their kids, namely that "But for you to know, Israel is the only democracy in the middle east." That line is right up there with "There are no Palestinians," and "A land without people for a people without (ever enough) land." Having different roads and different laws for Jews and non-Jews is not my idea of democracy. Nor is destroying crops of Arabs, or expelling Christians.

    I can not agree more with the overwhelmingly negtive comments about the utterly rude interviewer Piers Morgan and his poor interview techniques. It was very embarrasing the way he interviewed (or better yet, lectured) the Israeli Prime Minister. I had been commenting to relatives and co-workers since Piers took on his new job of how he repeatedly interrupts his guests just when they are getting on with their interesting answers and comments. Piers is always right there looking down at his next question to be asked. It might not be all his fault, but that of his producers, who might be telling him to make sure he gets in all his pre-planned questions. He so obviously is not even paying attention to their answers, and probably the reason he raises the tone of his voice as he rudely interrupts with his next question. I can always tell when he is ready to interrupt. I give the Israeli PM so much praise in the way he politely smoothed out the rude and disrespectfull interruptoins by (dumb) Piers. This was the final straw for me; I will not watch him any longer, and I predict less than 6 months left to the :"Piers Morgan Worst Interviewer" Show. Sorry for rambling, but this guy's got to go, CNN!

    The prime minister repeated the statement about three times that the land is the ancestrial land of the jewish people insisting they are the one who is compromising to give up the 25% thats occupied by the palestinians. Piers should have call him on that argument are he alredy accepted the western point of view of if they conquire they own that land like America and the British empire. If the prime minister would like to make that comparison and the western world accept that then they wouldnt have a problem if 200 yesrs later the native Americans want the AMERICAS BACK.

    I was pleasantly impressed with the interview since I have never appreciated Piers Morgan's talent as an interviewer.
    I am surprised that some posters indicated that he was "against Israel" – well I am an Israeli and think that it is the duty of a journalist to ask difficult questions. If you think that Morgan was nasty, then you should see the Israeli interviewers when they are talking to our PM!

    In reply to the following poster:
    "AJ

    To all who were not happy with the posting I will ask you the same question Pier asked Bibi Netanyahu. Will you want your family to live in Gaza ? No..... Non of us would. Why ? because it has been turned into an open air prison camp. 80% of people below poverty line, 70% unemployment, no proper electricity or water. Very limited vaccinations and education for children. I challenge anyone of the defenders of Bibi Netanyahu here to go live one week in Gaza....just one week and then you can post anything you want here".

    I suggest that you have little or no knowledge of the history of Gaza if you think that all this started with the current Israeli government. Gaza was under Egyptian control from 1948 until the 6 Day War, 1967 and during that entire time there was a curfew, i.e. they weren't treated very well even then.

    Israel withdrew unilaterally from Gaza in 2005, a step welcomed by the majority of our people. All the settlers were removed from their farms and the state of the art glasshouses for fruit and flowers were left intact for the Gazans to use. Sadly instead of growing flowers for Europe, they were turned into military bases for their attacks on Israel. In the resulting political fight between Hamas and the PLO during the run-up to their elections, Hamas used brute force, murder and other methods to ensure their victory (PLO candidates being thrown from the roofs of tall buildings!). The civilian settlements in Southern Israel were attacked on a daily basis, with nearly 10,000 rockets being aimed at this area. The Blockade was imposed after it was obvious that they were receiving massive amounts of weapons through Egypt and by sea. It was also imposed most of the time by Egypt who was also fed up with the regime in Gaza.

    Hamas made no effort to use monies received from Europe and elsewhere to improve the status of their citizens. The entire structure went towards one thing – war against Israel. Therefore it is no surprise that they are poor, are unemployed and have suffered greatly under this Islamic extremist government. Hamas doesn't want any improvement for the Gazans – that would spoil their control over them. Then they wouldn't be so intent on killing Jews.

    I feel very sad about the situation in Gaza. I knew quite a few people who came from there and worked locally in our suburb. They are decent, hard-working people who deserve a better life but have NO chance of getting it whilst Hamas, and their masters in Iran, are controlling them. Are you aware that they hold public executions where the families of the executed are present? Do you know that they are putting down demonstrations by those Gazans calling for democracy and unity with the PLO with great force and violence. Of course none of this is mentioned in the Western press who are so anxious to blame just one side in this conflict.

    There could be progress and eventually a settlement but they need to accept Israel's right to exist before anything can go forward. Our people also deserve to live in peace – several GRAD rockets fell only a couple of days ago and everyone is sleeping in shelters again.

    Both sides need to make concessions and be willing to move forward. Sadly I don't see Hamas, Hezbollah or any of these Islamic extremist groups as being partners for any agreement.

    Piers is absolutely amazing in this and every interview he has done. Larry King never pushed his guests. Perhaps (not surprisingly) that's why all of the comments regarding the interview with bibi are so critical of piers, any critique of the Israeli line is considered beyond the pale in the US. Piers is seriously clever at his interviews-from Sheen to Bibi-you have to look at how he approaches his guests in the context of what is occurring at the time. So he gave Sheen a lot of leeway to show how over the edge he has gone-therefore exposing his complete wackiness without doing it overtly-which is tasteless in an interview and makes the host look like a bully. With bibi he was basically reminding him over and over that the international community is tired of Israel's foot dragging on peace-this must be seen in context of what is occurring in Egypt, Libya, etc... It's a critical point given they are changing. Israel's old line that the middle east is full of anti democratic despots not to be negotiated with is going to be seen as a ruse (rightfully so). Piers was trying to show that times are a changing and Israel will only hurt itself by clinging to old tropes. He us quite clever-and for the idiots amongst us-his angles can be easily lost. I for one believe he is above Christian A., and CNN is finally worth watching. He's polemical! Get with it people. Watch Piers and your watching TV history. I'm afraid most tv viewers aren't savvy enough to get it. You won't get it in on fox, jazeera or BBC interviews, dare I say you won't get in from Rose either-who is increasingly looking like larry king in disguise. Keep watching and you might get it!

    Amongst all the very sad brainwashed racist comments from haters that surface every time this subject is raised, it is slightly heart-warming that the only two comments that seem to offer any hope are from an actual Israeli and an Muslim. Ilan and Suhail – maybe there is some hope!

    As for my opinion on the interview, I agree with Mrs Buhl and Ruth. I'm pro-Israel (Jewish) and British, but was happy with the interview overall. I think Piers (/any interviewer) Should put difficult questions to their guests – only this way can we see their response. Yes – I would have liked to hear more of the PM (It's a rare opportunity) and less of Piers, but I didn't see it as anti-Israel, just his general style. I would have liked more depth, the answers just touched the surface of what could have been fascinating insights or discussions – the whole thing felt rushed, but there was a lot to cover. I've not seen the other two interviews yet – I hope that the other side had the same format too.

    The truth about Israel today and how long US TAX PAYERS shall support a state that does not recognize the dignity of others unless you are a Jew:

    Israel is stealing Palestinian land to import fanatic Jews and pay them American tax payers hard earned money to build settlements in a land that belongs to Palestinians that have not that much to begin with. This is one of the outrageous crimes of the century, and Americans need to know this.

    Today Israel’s government has adopted a self destructive behavior that will not serve them well in the future.

    They have the option to accept the Palestinians’ right to exist and have their own state.

    They have the option to stop stealing land from the West Bank and dismantle the illegal settlements that they have built.

    They have the option to stop importing Jews from all around the world that are not born in Israel.

    They have the option to behave humanely.

    But unfortunately they have decided to occupy, kill and steal Palestinian land.
    Until they elect governments that are humane, willing to accept the Palestinian suffering they have caused, they will never live in peace in the Israel they have created. The entire world knows and sees the truth.

    I believe the day will come, when America will say, we cannot support Israel’s criminal behavior.
    To their own benefit, Israel should find a way to negotiate a just peace deal with Palestinians before American support evaporates.

    I don't think Piers is really anti-semitic or anything (I like Jews actually but can't stand Netanyahu). Why do people see Israel government = Jews? I am sure many Jews don't approve of Mr. Netanyahu's uncooperative nature and hawkishness. But that said, journalists should give politicians such as him, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Gadaffi explain themselves without frequent interruption (I think Piers would do that to those two too) . There's no doubt concerning Mr. Netanyahu's high intellect and political skills including communication but Morgan could have been less obviously judgemental and that said asking tough questions is necessary. Here's to a bold interview (which could have been better)!!!

    After watching the entire interview, a couple of things remain 100% clear: Israel has nuclear weapons, Israel will not seek peace with the Palestinians, and finally, that the Israelis will play the victim card forever. It has become tedious and frankly pathetic. It no longer produces sympathy but rage when you see that they are using the holocaust card to basically get away with everything and anything. Enough already.

    Piers, how often do you have to be critized for the continual interruption before you take the hint, you were more polite with Charlie Sheen for God's sake, you don't listen, you are waiting for your turn to speak, you ask a question and don't wait for the answer(even if the audience wants to hear the answer) and you don't like the Prime minister and you are too infantile to hide your feelings, don't interview him!!!!! You have a lot to learn and your middle-aged smugness is beginning to be tiring.MMH

      You spoke my mind. That's exactly what I wanted to say to Piers. His interview approach is a shame to journalism.

      First: Hamas is fully responsible, beside otherthings they used their own people as human shields. Second: PM was Olmert that time ... anything else?

    Well...looks like CNN's editor has been doing some "editing" of this blog. Removing some posts and rearranging the order with the intent of placing pro-israel posters "anti-semite" smears of Mike as the most recent comments so it will be seen by those looking for the latest posts.

    Sorry, but the cat is outta the bag now and the info on who owns and controls the corporate media mega conglomerations is all over the internet. The numbers of Jews in network ownership and executive positions is STAGGERING. Shall I elaborate?

    Movies..television..Network news..Cable..the major newspapers..book publishing..

    Yahoo..AOL..Google..Facebook..Youtube..Craigslist..Wikipedia

    Even Murdoch..the lone Gentile in the mix is a self proclaimed Zionist! Any more questions?

    Wanna know how to become an "anti-semite"? Criticize a jew or israel.

    This Zionist Pig is no diplomat....and I wouldnt be one bit suprized if these latest killings being blamed on the Palistinians are not the work of the Mossad. They are infamous for such false flag ops (think Irgun, Stern Gang, Black Hand and Beyond) see also "Missing Links: The definative Truth About 9/11" – also Mossad. They are EVIL incarnate and care little for anyones life but their own.

    @ John Doe

    I hear ya John. That's exactly why Americans are getting fed up with AIPAC/Israel influence in our government and the Jewish ownership and manipulation of news and media. Btw, they not only own the news and media corporations top to bottom, but the bureau chiefs, editors and staffers and news writers all up and down the chain (including AP and Reuters) are predominantly Jewish. Is it any wonder we only get the pro-Israel spin in the news in America?

    I'll be shocked if this post is still here after the CNN blog censors get a look at it!

    G-d gave Israel to the Jews. What part of this is so complicated? No one has the right to try to undo what G-d has done, not the UN the USA or any other nation or person. If you don't like what G-d did tell Him that if you dare. Psalms 78: 52. He drove His nation like sheep, and guided them like a flock in the desert. 53. He led them in security and they did not fear, for the sea covered their enemies. 54. And He brought them to the boundary of His holy place, this mountain which His right hand acquired. 55. He drove out nations before them, and allotted them an inheritance [measured] by the cord; He settled the tribes of Israel in their tents. . 1 Why are the nations in an uproar? And why do the peoples mutter in vain?
    ב יִתְיַצְּבוּ, מַלְכֵי-אֶרֶץ– וְרוֹזְנִים נוֹסְדוּ-יָחַד:
    עַל-יְהוָה, וְעַל-מְשִׁיחוֹ. 2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together, {N}
    against the LORD, and against His anointed:
    ג נְנַתְּקָה, אֶת-מוֹסְרוֹתֵימוֹ; וְנַשְׁלִיכָה מִמֶּנּוּ עֲבֹתֵימוֹ. 3 'Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.'
    ד יוֹשֵׁב בַּשָּׁמַיִם יִשְׂחָק: אֲדֹנָי, יִלְעַג-לָמוֹ. 4 He that sitteth in heaven laugheth, the Lord hath them in derision.
    ה אָז יְדַבֵּר אֵלֵימוֹ בְאַפּוֹ; וּבַחֲרוֹנוֹ יְבַהֲלֵמוֹ. וַאֲנִי, נָסַכְתִּי מַלְכִּי: עַל-צִיּוֹן, הַר-קָדְשִׁי.

    Netanyahu falsely claimed on international tv that Israel lifted "all the retrictions" on Gaza! NOT SO! Gaza is still very much under siege. Conditions were made slightly better in terms of number of food items allowed in after Israel's assault on the Gaza aid flotilla, but still at most Israel permitted only 40% of normal pre-siege levels of aid to get into Gaza. An estimated 400 patients have died from being prevented from getting medical care in Egypt or Israel. About 150 vital medicines are extinct in Gaza, and only 5% of the water is potable. These are violations of very basic human rights (right to movement; to fresh water; to medical care; to education; to having a home). So either Netanyahu doesn't know what his government is doing or he intended to mislead CNN viewers.

    PM Netanyahu is a crazy guy. I like him and i understand why he says what he says and why his country acts the way they do. After
    almost getting wiped off the face of the earth you learn to stay on the offensive. I agree with his comment about Gadhafi. He is no
    friend of Israel and or America. He was a terrorist that took power in a unstable country.
