WATCH: Binyamin Netanyahu Handles ‘Hostile’ Andrew Marr Interview Like a Boss


I am not sure if it just me, but BBC television presenter Andrew Marr comes across as both goofy and smug. And he would not be out of place in a James Bond film as Q, showing Bond the latest gadgets.

Be that as it may, he recently had Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on to discuss the Middle East conflict. He tried to play “bad cop” – much like Tim Sebastian used to do on HARDTalk, and still does on DW’s Conflict Zone.

Bibi always give a good account of himself but I’d venture to say this was one of his most masterful performances.
