Watch The Israeli Prime Minister's Face When Someone Compares Him To Beyoncé

No one — NO ONE — can handle being compared to King B.

Posted on October 2, 2014, at 3:35 p.m. ET

During a recent trip to the U.S., Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave an interview to Fusion. The presenter began by telling Bibi that polls show young Jewish Americans don't trust him to bring peace. And then he said...

"You've never been compared to Beyoncé, I'm sure."

And this was Netanyahu's reaction:

The interviewer was referring to a campaign by the advocacy group J Street telling Netanyahu to put a "border on it," where "it" appears to be Israel. J Street advocates for a two-state solution between the Israelis and Palestinians.

J Street is trying to appeal to younger people with the campaign referencing Beyonce's 2008 hit. But, well...

This is inexcusable. http://t.co/NttWhHIJwG J Street should have used "Partition."
