    "I think we should go there (UN) and present our truth" - Netanyhau/ What do you do when you can't handle the truth? You tell half the truth or perhaps a truth that was valid once upon a time but no longer holds. A couple of examples: 1. "Netanyahu said he has turned to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas several times, and offered him to meet, but Abbas declined." The other half of the truth is that Abbas was actually interested in meeting, but insisted that Israel freeze settlements construction so she wouldn't finish eating the pizza while the two sides discuss how to share it. 2. "[We will] present our truth… of a people attacked over and over by those opposed to their very existence." Sounds true, but the PLO recognized Israel's right to exist in 1988, 23 years ago. Since then Israel under Likud was opposed to a Palestinian state's existence, not the other way around.
