Video: A younger Netanyahu says 'No' to a Palestinian state  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long been recognized, even by his political opponents, as one of the Jewish state’s most skilled and articulate spokesmen.

In 1978 after graduating from MIT, Netanyahu appeared on the American TV program “The Advocate” and debated Palestinian apologist Fouad Ajami, who is today a professor at John Hopkins University. Netanyahu was at the time going by the name Ben Nitay, largely due to security concerns after his brother, Yonatan, was killed while leading a raid to free airline passengers taken hostage by PLO terrorists in Entebbe, Uganda.

The following video shows how, even at age 28, Netanyahu was able to masterfully dismantle criticism of Israel for not allowing the creation of a Palestinian Arab state after taking control of Judea and Samaria 11 years earlier.
