Palestinian PM vs. Israeli PM

By Gilad Atzmon


The Palestinian PM Salam Fayyad stated today that extremists must stop pretending to stand up for Palestinian children's rights.

"It is time for these criminals to stop marketing their terrorist acts in the name of Palestine and to stop pretending to stand up for the rights of Palestinian children who only ask for a decent life," the Palestinian premier said in a statement.

Yet I wonder, isn’t the time ripe for the Israeli prime minister to produce a similar statement- something like:

"It is time for our Jewish State to stop marketing our State- terrorist acts in the name of Jewish people, Jewish suffering and the Shoa. We better stop pretending to stand up for the rights of Jews and their children who, like Palestinians,  only ask for a decent life."

Though this is a very reasonable thing to do, I do not see PM Netanyahu producing such a statement any time soon.
