    A recent poll shows Israel has become one of the least popular countries in the world. Netanyahu had a perfect opportunity here to win back some popularity here. The murder of a baby and small children is a particularly horrible act. It was a perfect opportunity for Netanyahu to seize some moral high ground for Israel by asking everyone to reflect on the horror of violence and the need for real peace and reconciliation. Instead, he has made Israel look even worse than the Palestinian side. The murder of the family is totally despicable but has been condemned by the PA and is clearly the act of isolated extremists. By contrast, the expansion of settlements is Israeli government policy and the act of extremists right at the heart of Israel.
