Berlusconi is a venal politician, and so when he is on an overseas trip he will say what his hosts want to hear. It helps him to get invited back, you see..... Now he would be a STATESMAN if he switched the soundbites around i.e. if he had give the Knesset speech while he was in Ramallah, and if he had given his little Abbas pep-talk while he was addressing the Israeli parliament. THEN his words would have had meaning, because THEN he would have been telling home truths. But the way he did do it? He was simply scratching backs even as he reached for the next hors doeuvre, and that rendered his words - all of them - meaningless.
