    The terrorattack in Itamar, and it´s repercussions and aftermath, is a sad and predictable show. 1. There are still people in the region who obviously are ready to commit heinous crimes. 2. Netanyahu seizes the PR-day and goes on a blitz in order to influence world opinion about Israel, and to "convince" us all that "they don´t want peace". 3. Abbas, under pressure, condemns the attack. We have seen it all about a million times. It´s a sad, pathetic and sickening spectacle. But you know what - the conflict hasn´t changed. So all the media- and PR-tricks by Netanyahu are in vain. And the same is true for Abbas and his gang.
