The Hebrew “Walla” website considered that the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, “mocked” US President Joe Biden, when he imitated a movement made by the latter during a meeting with the current Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
And the Hebrew website Walla said on Sunday evening, in a live broadcast on its official page, that Netanyahu mocked the American president when he imitated his body language during a live broadcast by “tilting his head down as a sign of Joe Biden falling asleep.”
This came as the opposition leader and former Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed the meeting that Bennett, with Biden, had weeks before at the White House, in a live broadcast of a meeting he had gathered with journalists, and posted it on his personal page on Facebook.
When Netanyahu was asked about Naftali’s meeting with Biden, he replied, “I heard that Biden was very attentive.”
In answering the question, Netanyahu imitated Biden by “tilting his head”, hinting that Biden had fallen asleep during the meeting with Naftali Bennett.
Later, the Likud party (headed by Netanyahu) issued a statement in which he said, “Contrary to the distorted image broadcast by the (Hebrew) media, former Prime Minister Netanyahu did not criticize President Biden, whom he knows and is proud of as a friend of Israel for 40 years.
He continued, “Netanyahu’s criticism was directed only at Bennett, who spoke during his visit to the White House on issues of no importance.”
On August 27, US President Joe Biden received current Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at the White House in the first meeting that brought the two men together since they took office this year, and they discussed together several files, including the Iranian file and the Middle East peace process.
