    Why waste your & our time with having Netanyahu all over your show?

    Why not have respectable Jewish intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, MJ Rosenberg or Uri Avnery on your show so that Americans can benefit from the truth for once?
    Why is our main stream media averse to let us hear what the good Jews from Jewish Voice for Peace and JStreet are saying about Israeli policies? Or the distinguished Rabbinic leaders from Rabbis of North America for Peace?
    Better still why not invite brave patriotic Jews of Gush Shalom from Israel & let them have their say too.
    We are getting fed up of seeing these politicos parroting their spiel and trying to dupe Americans over and over again.

      Wait, wait, where did I hear something similar? Ah, yes – "Workers of all countries, unite!". The results are well known to those hundreds of millions who experienced this first hand. Experiment on rabbits and leave Israel alone. Israel is the only democratic state in the whole region and the only Jewish state in the whole wide world. Meddle with your friends from 22 Arab counties. And also, stop hiding your inner anti-Semitism under anti-Zionist kufiah. It so transparent – no sugar coating would be able to hide the true nature of your words.

    The above poster names every radical intellectual and organization and labels them as respectable.
    He forgot the respected Fifth Column at HA'aretz newspaper – they would be perfect guests.

    Feedback on Piers Morgan's interview with Israel's Prime Minister: Benjamin Netanyahu. I was hardly impressed by Piers Morgan's interview skills (or lack of) on the day. He constantly interrupted his guest and at the most inappropriate times. The Prime Minister had some interesting things to say, yet the interview was ruined by the constant interruptions. Piers Morgan would do well to take a leaf out of Larry king's book, limit the number of questions and listen to your guest. Refrain from constant interruptions. At least appear to be interested in what your guest is saying and tone down the robotic demeanour.

      I agree that Mr Morgan interrupts his guest. He ask a question and before the guest can finish his answer he interrupts and starts talking again. I really think that is rude and disrespectful.

    The only complaint I have is that you chopped up this interview (and others?) into disjointed sound bites. Why not put the whole interview into one video so we can think for ourselves? You know, like 😉

      I agree with you. The entire interview should have been aired unedited. The interview with Mr. Remnick (journalist) amazed me. This guy doesn't seem to know the history and wants Israel to concede, concede, concede. That's the name of the game for Israel – conceding more of their land will never be enough – there will never be peace. There was a time when the Jews (Hebrews) possessed much, much more land in the Middle East than they do today. Oh my, it doesn't matter, though, let's just continue to beat up on Israel, eh? I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, Israel's true capital.

    Yes.. Yes.. No doubt they can feel pain. But when are they ever going to open their eyes to see, and ears to hear? How many more little children have to cry out. How many more generations of little children have to come forth and cry out to their parents before they get on their knees and pray for them to… It’s like as if they are always complaining about lack of peace and tranquility.

    Lies, Lies and more Lies by this ultra right wing Zionist. At the start of the interview, he points to the map, this is where the middle east starts and starts off with Tunisia, Libya, etc.-well that's north Africa. He is trying to make his point that Israel is so small- why don't all these Arabs and Muslims just be happy with all that land they have?? But the truth of the matter is that Israel is a country that is built on stolen land.-Before WWII there were no problems, but then the Zionists came. Hitler left a few Jews to show the whole world why he tried to get rid of all of them in the first place.

    This is the finest piece of television journalism I have ever seen in my 46 years of life. Thank you, Mr. Morgan, for bringing it to the public. My only regret is that more people who need to see it may never get to. Please keep up the excellent work you are now doing.

      Well, you can try calling her and aniksg if there are better and cheaper ways you can communicate with each other. Take enough time on the phone to have an agreement on how to talk to each other. Some ways can be through letters or email, or cell phones if you have them and can be usable in the areas you're at. But the phone maybe the only option due to what's going on in Israel.

    Mr Morgan Sir: Please stick to music. Your interview with Mr Netanyahu was terrible. You interupted him many times with your mindless questions. Lecturing him on the best way to deal with his countries problems was insensative at best. I will not be watching you in future.

    History and archeology shows Israel Jews being in the region for thousands of years, with artifacts and the first two temples that were built in Jerusalem.
    It's PLO wanting to hide the facts and artifacts beneath the temple mount. PLO peace equals destruction of Israel. Any peace deal will mean the temporary destruction of Israel.

    Thank you Mr. Netanyahu for an excellent appearance. You have insights into the regional geopolitical reality and the ability to explicate them, in spite of annoying interruptions. Thank you. I stop to watch when you appear on the public stage. Making Europe into a new caliphate was a telling comment. Truth in one simple sentence.

    Mr. Morgan, I think you are a good interviewer, however, it would be good to cultivate a more closed mouth and more open ears. To listen well is hard to learn. Your interview show should be about who you interview not about your ability to ask pithy questions. A bit contradictory but I know you get the idea.

    So when USA and other troops killed many civilians in Iraq that was acceptable but when another country not favoured by the USA is in civil war and is trying to regain power do many countries try to change its leadership, did the USA and other want to remove Mugabe, to be it seems double standards. OR is it again OIL? I have no love for Gaddafi and just consider African countries should be left to sort their problems out why would any of our tax dollars or the lives of our service men and women be killed ? People in Gaza, Lebanon and soon to be Iran are being killed by Israelis with who blessing ????? this is down right wicked and hypocritical. Where is the UN when Israeli are occupying and killing innocent lives. Has any on helped the people of Burma? or the people of Bahrain that is invaded by Saudi Arabia?Interestingly on Obama's and Cameron's speeches on the justification, Bahrain and other countries in the region fell into the same category as Libya. Its the obvious cherry picking by the west that is hard for people of this country to stomach, I hope I'm wrong but this could be the worst mistake we've made in recent years all down to politicians, shedding crocodile tears and making the same mistakes. This time it's people power and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will fall sooner than calculated by the West and the flooding and storms will destroy the country.

    Morgan you were soft of Natanyahu he has killed just as much as the mad man Gaddafi

    We all know Col. Gaddafi would not see the writings on the wall, and has vowed for a long-drawn out war. It is amazing that the Western air strikes against Libya is supported by the Arab League but NONE of them are attacking Bahrain for killing it's people. No one is attacking Israel for breaking all UN resolution for occupying land and killing people. It is not understood why the Arab League could not convince Col. Gaddafi to step down. UN Security Council does not play a more active role when it suits the West. Will attacking resolving the Libyan crisis? If the worst thing comes to the worst, the desirability of the Security Council's ordering the Inter Pol to arrest Gaddafi and hand him over to the International Criminal Court for his trial for his crimes against humanity.
    It seems that a full scale war in Libya is unavoidable.The ceasefire ordered by Gaddafi is not fully in force, and his forces are still fighting the rebels.Such an ineffective ceasefire cannot restore peace in Libya.And Col. Gaddafi is going to be responsible for the colossal losses of life and property in Libya. History will not forgive him but the resentment of the West for killing family members will be remembered creating more suicide bombers and supporters of bin laden philosophy. Unless the West starts playing fair brokers of PEACE and solve the Palistian issue once in for all. This unfortunately will never happen as the West leaders are thugs with great PR and Media supporting Israel regardless how unethical and murderous the Israelis are, they are running the Western leaders not the other way round.
    Be that as it may, the firing of so many missiles by the US and the UK creates only havoc in the country. It is apprehended that thousands of Libyans will be compelled to flee from Libya to Tunisia and other neighbouring countries, leading to refugee problems which will be another man-made disaster.
    The large scale disorder and strife in Libya are likely to spread in the other countries in the region, and the continuation of such an appalling situation may banish peace from the region.Could there have been a better way to resolve this issue yes. Put the same amount of $$$ dollars spent on removing him by paying ransom for this mad man, his own children would have turned him in. Why must our service men and women be killed removing some one so degenerate?

    Zionist hidden ambitios for nuclear search, building and using it as a weapon deos exist, which wiil put the region on huge stage of threat, Zionist lies are tested when they have used phosphorus weapon in Lebanon, Zionist lies about threat from Syria at the same time they enjoyes peace with Syria for over than 30 years. Over than 30,000 combined UN soldiers with Lebanese army gaurding the north borders of Israel, which become much more safer than many neighbourhood in Israel, but it is not appreciated and the Zionist continue to violate the air space and continue to occupy part of Lebanese land, including their spy networks and provocative policy helping Hezbollah to gain more support from Iran and become the reason for fund raise campaign including ideas of future wars. Who deported the half million Palestinian refugees to Lebanon and where they came from and why they can't be deported back to their country, while every one else is deported from US and Europe? People of Israel are the greatest without the Zionist evil regime and the good Jewish heart deserve freedom and revolt for change for the future peace in the region. There are many good in the Jews people, unlike the Zionist who abuse the good will of people for their own personal racism, the people of Israel are the real power of change for better world. People of Israel wake up and fight back that evil regime for change of creating better middle east for all.

    Netanyahu's answer to questions were like compass which ever direction you turn it was always pointing to one direction. Greatly appreciated Morgan's skill that he found that quickly and interrupted him whenever necessary. Also found it great that Morgan has asked many questions which was not (cannot be) asked by world leaders due to diplomatic reasons
    The best part of the interview was the climax (The last question), especially the answer from him, it was one of the very few occasions we had seen Israel's leader in defense.
