Julian Assange, Zionist Neocon?
UPDATE 10:42 a.m: The world's really turned upside down. Israeli ambassador Ron Prosor got a standing ovation-- at Oxford Union?

In an interview with Time, Julian Assange uses Benjamin Netanyahu to defend Wikileaks:
And we can see the Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu coming out with a very interesting statement that leaders should speak in public like they do in private whenever they can. He believes that the result of this publication, which makes the sentiments of many privately held beliefs public, are promising a pretty good [indecipherable] will lead to some kind of increase in the peace process in the Middle East and particularly in relation to Iran.
Assange later called Bibi a "sophisticated politician."
Lest we get carried away, Assange's colleague, James Ball told the Daily Telegraph that there are a lot more cables yet to be released about Israel, the Vatican, North Korea and other regions. No telling what kind of revelations they hold.
But if you listen carefully, you can almost hear Robert Fisk sobbing in his beer.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Julian Assange, Zionist Neocon?:
it is a very disturbing development both at Oxford and Assange's quote.
He is either incredibley uninformed as to who and what Netanyahu stands for and therefore a zionist stooge or is just pro-zionist plain and simple.
either way, he is an idiot. i do not care to hear what Assange has to say if he is prone to quoting the Israeli PM.
Assange's statements do not in any way endorse Netanyahu's politics.
What next, no more drinking water because Netanyahu also drinks water?
He called Netanyahu a sophisticated politician, not his best buddy. People like you, ideologues, can't bear those of us who don't march, lock step, down the line you have drawn. You are no better than those fascists on FOX.
