'Attack, attack, attack' - Leaked emails show panicked Netanyahu rallying Clinton against BDS

"Eizenstat reflects true panic from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the BDS campaign. Describing a meeting of himself and Dennis Ross with Netanyahu in June 2015, Eizenstat offered trusted Clinton aide Jake Sullivan Netanyahu’s assessment of BDS: On BDS, Israel should move from the defense to the offense. It should be attacked on moral grounds. It is “unjust” and “cruel”. Israel must attack its attackers. The best defense is a good offense: “attack, attack, attack”." (thanks Amir)
