"When there are pressures on Israel to concede its security, the easiest thing to do is to concede. You get a round of applause, ceremonies on grassy knolls, and then come the missiles and the tunnels."
(Note: Some have since argued Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech was mistranslated).
Why did Netanyahu respond to chickenshit with 'grassy knoll' remark?

Wading through all the chickensh*t over the last few days Netanyalnfs “grassy knoll" comeback somehow missed out on all the action, but what the hoot guys? Where I come from that terminology only means one thing, as far as I know, that applies to the lexicon anywhere in America, if not the world. Hey, even Google agrees with me. And what are the chances Netanyahu and/ or his speechwriters don’t know this? Nada. Impossible.
Why would Netanyahu make a reference to one of the most alarming chapters in American history, the assassination of a beloved American president? And for many, an assassination still shrouded in mystery and deceit? l just thought it was very weird. 'Where is our press?
Winding down after scrutinizing, dissecting and eviscerating Goldberg's now infamous Chickensh"‘t article, Justin Raimondo, in The Chickenshit Lobby Is Mad As Hell— but just how mad are they? makes the argument had a leader of Iran slipped “grassy knoll" into a message to an American president the press would have gone bonkers. I agree.
What’s surprising is how Netanyahu, in a speech to the Knesset, took the opportunity to answer his critics in the Obama administration; “Netanyahu angrily insisted he was ‘under attack simply for defending Israel,’ adding that he ‘cherished Israel's relationship with the US.”
The famously combative Israeli Prime Minister went on to say:
“When there are pressures on Israel to concede its security, the easiest thing to do is to concede. You get a round of applause, ceremonies on grassy knolls, and then come the missiles and the tunnels."
Do you think anyone at the White House noticed Netanyahu’s phraseology? Me too. So Why
the silence from the press? Grassy knoll, it only means one thing here in America:
Netanyahu is widely faulted for helping to incite Rabin assassination, marching in a rally
where guys were holding up a cofﬁn for Rabin.
