    "The second thing [we insist on] is the recognition that Israel is the national state of the Jewish people. If we are asked to recognize a Palestinian state, it is both natural and appropriate that the Palestinians recognize the state of the Israeli people as a Jewish state" - Netanyahu's Rosh Hashana address/// There are two inaccuracies (lies) in this statement: 1. The Palestinians do not demand that their state will be recognized as a "Palestinian state", only as an independent state, which they may call Palestine if they so desire. 2. The Palestinians do not demand that their state be recognized as "the national state of the Palestinian people". They just want an independent state. Period. Netanyahu may or may not be lying to himself too, but the "natural" analogy that he claims does not exist. Abbas is right when he says "It is not my job to give a description of the state. Name yourself the Hebrew Socialist Republic - it is none of my business".
