    So, PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad tells Palestinian audiences that the Palestinian who murdered Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai in January 2010 is a shahid (holy martyr) and names a town square after Dalal Mughrabi who murdered 37 Israelis on a city bus, and we are supposed to be impressed because he "condemns terrorism" to ISRAELI and FOREIGN CAMERAS in English?!? Are we really so stupid to fall for this? Or do we have such a low opinion of the PA Prime Minister's integrity that we think he is telling US the truth, but lying to his OWN people? Whatever the case, the fact is that he is telling the pool of bombers to continue the "armed struggle" against the occupation, that Jerusalem is occupied, and that the Jews have no historical connection to Jerusalem.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
