The Ramallah incident is only a little grain of sand in the accumulation of Israeli diplomatic blunders over the past months: The Arab league makes Israel an offer for peace, Israel looks the other way. The Syrians are "begging" for negotiations, Israel looks the other way. Hamas leader Meshal recognises (at least verbally) Israels future existence, Israel looks the other way. Who knows, maybe all 3 offers are just bloody lies. But how will you ever know, when you are never willing to check...?? And with regard to the killed children in Gaza, yes, of course such brutal acts have to be condemned too, if they are commited by Palesti- nian terrorists. But does the state of Israel really wanna compare herself with Palestinian murderers and thugs...??
