Netanyahu takes a cue from Donald Trump and attacks media organizations such as CNN and The New York Times over their reports on Hamas' charter supporting a Palestinian state along 1967 borders reports citing Haaretz.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attacked "fake news" coverage of Hamas' new charter in a video posted to his social media accounts on Monday.

Taking cues from U.S. President Donald Trump, Netanyahu attacked CNN and The New York Times, as well as The Guardian and Al Jazeera, over their reports on the Hamas charter supporting a Palestinian state along 1967 borders.

"Ever wonder what fake news is?" Netanyahu opened. "Last week, headlines in CNN, Al Jazeera and The Guardian said Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines. The New York Times headline called this 'moderation.'"

"The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel," Netanyahu continued. "Great news, right? Well except for one small detail: This is a complete distortion of the truth."

Netanyahu argued the new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist, asking "why does Hamas say there is consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now?" Netanyahu continued to slam Hamas and the charter, saying the charter can only be considered progress or moderation "only if you have no standards whatsoever."

"It's bad enough Hamas lies to the world, we don't also have to lie to ourselves," Netanyahu continued, before concluding by asking "so, where does this hate-filled document belong?" before crumbling up a copy of the charter and throwing it in a nearby wastebasket.
