Netanyahu has interviewed significantly more with the foreign press since his election victory, than with the Israeli media.

“This is not the first time that op-eds in The New York Times have been wrong,” presumptive prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Saudi-affiliated Arab network Al Arabiya on Thursday. Netanyahu’s comment came to a question about a Times op-ed in June arguing that Joe Biden might be the last pro-Israel Democratic US president. His remarks came before Saturday’s Times editorial that said the upcoming Netanyahu government was “a significant threat to the future of Israel – its direction, its security and even the idea of a Jewish homeland.”

Netanyahu’s interview with Al Arabiya was one of three that were broadcast or published late last week – the other two being to America’s National Public Radio and the Washington Examiner news outlet – and are among several that he has given to the international press since his election victory on November 1.
