Benjamin Netanyahu and US conservative bloggers:

From: David Goder
Subject: One Jerusalem Bloggers Call with BENJAMIN NETANYAHU
Date: Thursday, January 8, 2009, 3:53 PM


Live From Jerusalem, on Monday, January 12 at noon Eastern Standard Time, Israel’s former Prime Minister will update bloggers on the latest developments in Israel’s War with Hamas.

To access the call, dial (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Participants joining from outside the U.S. should dial (XXX) XXX-XXXX. The Conference ID is XXXXXX.

Benjamin Netanyahu, has been on the forefront of delivering the truth about Hamas, Iran, and the West’s stake in the outcome of this conflict.

Mr. Netanyahu has been criss-crossing the State of Israel reassuring its citizens that Israel’s Defense Forces are committed to eradicating the threat from Hamas.

As head of the Likud Party, he has suspended his party’s election campaign during this time of national emergency.

Mr. Netanyahu has set aside time from his busy schedule to participate in this briefing. He will take questions but given his tight schedule we suggest that bloggers submit questions by e-mail so he can cover as much ground as possible.

Ah, the old suspension of campaign gambit — that never fails! In all seriousness, the one good thing to have come out of this war thus far has been an erosion in Netanyahu’s political position in Israel.
