Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu participated in a soccer match with Jewish and Arab youths.
Unfortunately for him, things did not exactly go according to plan.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu injured his leg on Monday during a soccer match with Jewish and Arab youths. Following the game, Netanyahu was taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Har Hatzofim medical center, where doctors confirmed he had torn a tendon and his leg needed to be put in a cast for several weeks.
Netanyahu’s physicians confirmed that he had been injured
According to the Prime Minister’s Office, during the soccer match, Netanyahu “slipped on the grass, got up, continued to play and scored a goal.”
I love how the PMO admits he hurt himself, but feels the need to add the fact he courageously played on and even scored a goal.
Meanwhile, judging by some of the photos from the event, I’m guessing Netanyahu either slipped over the ball..
..or was tripped by one of the other players
Update: Straight from the douche’s mouth:
@zezaestrela Bibi uses football, his ruptured tendon, gay rights…anything 2 promote pro Israel hasbara.
