Benjamin Netanyahu on the United States' government shutdown: "They'll work it out...been there, done that"

Coming up this evening at 9, catch Piers Morgan's exclusive, face to face interview with Benjamin Netanyahu.

The 63-year-old Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu will be a special guest of "Piers Morgan Live" Friday. As part of the interview, Netanyahu offers his perspective on the United States' government shutdown.

"They’ll work it out. Been there, done that. You say we weren’t there before, we actually were. Some of us introduced a change in the Israeli system, which by the way I think is not as good as a political system as the one in the United States," Netanyahu tells Morgan. "With all its flaws, the American political system has a lot riding for it. It’s probably the best political system in the world."

Watch the above clip for more of Netanyahu's analysis of the U.S.'s government plight, and for complete coverage of Piers Morgan's interview with the Israeli Prime minister, watch "Piers Morgan Live" on CNN at 9 p.m. Friday.

    >>>WARNING CONCERNING OBAMACARE>>>
    --Immediate Attention Required PLEASE -–
    If you do not have to sign up with Obamacare on their website PLEASE DON'T! Once you see the cost of premiums and yearly deductible and choose to opt out from that point they will within a few hours email you stating your actual fees in which now they will by any means collect.
    REAL EXAMPLE -- Please Read & Please Forward ASAP!!!
    A comment posted on the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare FB page:
    "I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 "Silver Plan" and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I "opt-out" and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the "REPERCUSSIONS PORTION" for "non-payment" of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with "Non-Payment" and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy "Automatically withdraw" your "penalties" weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is "Free" or even "Affordable" How?

    why, when Nettenyahu tells Pierce that he will ask them why they need nuclear capabilities- why didnt Morgan ask him if Israel has nuclear weapons? WWhy doesnt Israel need to get rid of theirs if Iran does? Thats what I would like to know

      if israel actually does have weapons they are not a threat just like england and frace arent who also have nuclear weapons. the simple fact is iran has made serveral threats in the past and have a number of links with terrorists. Iran cannot be trusted

        Israel is no England or France (assuming that these two have been good actors in their history).

    The audacity of this schmuck is unparalleled. 'I will tell them if you want the sanctions lifted you have to do blah blah blah'. Does he think he makes decisions for US? Would Foxman have a hissy fit if we say they control America?

    Obama, grow a pair and tell him where to shove it.

      Couldn't agree more! Of course, Piers needs to grow a pair too so that he can ask though questions instead of the silly ones that he asked.

      Netanyahu has every right to say what (he believes or knows) needs to be done to prevent Iran having nuclear weapons. America shares that goal, that Iran should not have nuclear weapons. When somebody with a mind as great as Netanyahu says what needs to be done, on any subject, be it to fix an economy, or to stop Iran obtaining nuclear weaopns, if you share that goal, you'd a fool not to listen. It doesn't mean that Israel is going to apply sanctions or force some country to. Remember what Netanyahu said at the end of his speech at the UN in 2013. Oh wait, of course, you didn't listen, you're too damn stupid to! And even if Israel did act alone in what it can do, then you'd still cry. I guess maybe you want Iran to have nuclear weapons, in the hope that it attacks Israel. You really should be more honest in your intentions.

    Looks like a good intelligent interview. To answer the ignorant israel haters, This is a CLIP, so you don't know what was asked, but you can always look at other interviews. Netanyahu has been asked the dumb question that you ignorant israel haters ask, a thousand times, and answered it a athousand times. I've yet to hear ignorant israel haters come up with a reply to Netanyahu's response. Does Israel have nuclear weapons, Israel won't comment on that. So you stupid people can keep asking but you're just boring. And as to, Why can Israel have nuclear weapons if Iran doesn't, and it being hypocrisy.. Israel hasn't threatened death to any state/country/people. That's the answer. So respond to that reply -israel haters- instead of asking the same dumb question in your comment, like a boring drone., and I'd add, it's same as with Britain or America, who fight defensively, who don't target civilians, just as Goldstone admitted in his reconsideration, Israel doesn't target civilians. Israel Britain and America get good civilian to combatant ratios like 3:1 or 1:3 unlike any arabs that massacre each other and would massacre non-arabs if they could.
