Netanyahu Calls Critics of Israel "Hypocritical"

"We are a light to the nations," stated Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu at an event to fight human trafficking. "But there is a lot of hypocrisy," he added. "Israel is fighting for human rights," he said, but lamented that "Israel is described as a war criminal and a serial violator of human rights, while around us things are much worst. Hypocrisy undermines the effort to eradicate the evil and promote good. We will continue our activity to be a light unto the nations, if they want to see the light," he stated.
