Bibi Brings Back The Duck

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just released his Rosh Hashanah message.

It’s in Hebrew, and for Israelis, although it is also subtitled in English.

It starts with a Powerpoint-style presentation of his government’s accomplishments, month by month.

In Adar — remember, the month of Purim — this is what Netanyahu singles out:

I said clear things about Iran to the AIPAC annual conference.

And we get a replay of this quote:

If it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck, but this duck is a nuclear duck. 

"Clear things" is interesting. I’m fairly sure we can assume that Netanyahu is not concerned that AIPAC needs any kind of "clarity" on Iran.

Perhaps the fact that he is delivering the "clarity" in Washington, in English, to a conference also addressed by President Obama is more to the point.

UPDATE: Sarah Breger on Twitter corrects me: This is more Facebook timeline than PowerPoint presentation.
