The political battle between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama over the Iranian nuclear program has taken on cosmic proportions – literally.
An Israeli film production company, Hafakot 101, posted a humorous – and, it should be noted, completely fictitious - clip on Facebook showing Netanyahu, his ally Naftali Bennett, and Obama engaged in a Star Wars-style light sabre battle.
Obama is cast in the role of Darth Vader, and he must defeat his arch-nemesis, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Netanyahu). Obi-Wan’s “brother,” Bennett, comes to his aid just before Darth Vader boards the last flight to Tehran to sign the nuclear agreement.
Bennett’s Bayit Yehudi comrade, Ayelet Shaked, makes a cameo, as does “Yoda,” whose identity is a surprise.
