Netanyahu’s claim of 'ethnic cleansing' sets a Guinness record for chutzpah - Chemi Shalev – Haaretz 10.09.16

Netanyahu unruffled by critical UN envoy report – Akiva Eldar – Al-Monitor 06.09.16

– Barak Ravid – Haaretz 10.09.16
In the video, Netanyahu hinted that the US and other countries that support the uprooting of Israeli West Bank settlements as part of a deal establishing a Palestinian state were supporting the ethnic cleansing of Jews. Includes the video [2:00].
