Today we have another striking example. The Jerusalem Post (again) announces:
Majority of Palestinians Oppose Peace Talks
Interesting, no? Those angry rejectionist Arabs seem to be undermining peace again. Or are they? Once one scrolls down to the actual text though, we read the following:
56% of Palestinians oppose a return to peace talks with Israel while West Bank settlement construction is ongoing, Ma’an News Agency reported Wednesday
This is, of course, a radically different sentiment from the context-less assertion that Palestinians are ideologically against peace talks with Israel. What they are against is providing political cover to the Israelis while their land is actively being taken from them in order to build Jewish only communities in what was supposed to become their state.
In other words, 56% of Palestinians are against providing political legitimacy to their own ethnic cleansing.
Does that really warrant the headline the JPost provided? Whose agenda is served by the JPost’s false alarmism?
