Recycling, I mean. Nothing to do with St. Patty's Day. :)
AIPAC's Newest Strategy
So, Netanyahu's got a new strategy. No partner for peace. It sounds familiar, doesn't it? Arabs are throwing off repression right and left and Merkel and Europe are increasingly critical of Israel since the leaks of the Palestine Papers. At least someone's paying attention! Israel's got to think of something fast to stop this peace and democracy stuff. A recent tragedy just might be the key to painting Abbas with the terrorist brush.
Israel's trying to use this poor (but still illegal) settler family as a way to turn the hate back on Palestinians and blame all that's wrong with the Middle East not on oppression, but on Palestinians.
Apparently, it very well could be a disgruntled Asian employee. Of course, Israel and everyone is jumping the gun and calling this terrorism, assuming the perpetrator is Palestinian and hauling in all males of a certain age as usual. And as usual, Israeli police or military or whoever is in charge of protecting the illegal settlers is letting settlers terrorize neighboring Palestinians who had nothing to do with it. Netanyahu is making a big deal of making Abbas jump through whatever apologetic hoops; will Israel be required to apologize for the actions of its military when they violate the rights of Palestinians at the drop of a hat or kill children or settlers who throw Molotov cocktails at Palestinians?
