    I can't believe that Netanyahu does not recognize the falsehood of each and every one of his claims. He is reasonably intelligent even if not a genius. He does what he usually does best, doing a PR job and trying to divert the blame onto others. Example: Old Helen Thomas now represents "world opinion" even though she is an American, and in the US, Israel's popularity is quite strong (and Thomas had to resign for her words). Another example: Blame the Palestinians for having "no intention" to engage in direct talks. Really? They set a condition, that Israel adhere to the obligation it undertook under the Roadmap and stop construction in what may potentially become Palestine. They had direct talks with Olmert, and apply various pressures on Netanyahu to behave as his predecessor did. One should remember that Netanyahu got his highest graduate degree (MA) in marketing. That requires good PR and disregard for truth about the product he is trying to sell.
