Jewish Press: Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused an offer by the US to adopt the now failed “Afghanistan Model” and rely on Palestinian Authority security forces for security, Netanyahu posted on Facebook today.
The former prime minister revealed Wednesday that in 2013, he was approached by then US Secretary of State John Kerry, who invited him on a secret visit to Afghanistan to see, as he explained, how the US had set up a local military force that could stand alone against terrorism.

And makes fools of the judges.” Job 12:17
“The message was clear – the ‘Afghanistan model’ is the model that the United States seeks to apply to the Palestinian issue as well,” he wrote.
He “politely declined” the offer and rejected the idea.
