As the Palestinians are waging what amounts to a third intifada against Israel, the Obama administration is refusing to condemn the Palestinians, instead suggesting Israel is ALSO to blame. This is a blatant and unfair equivocation.
Clearly, the Obama administration holds Israel equally accountable for Palestinian terrorism as it does the Palestinians.
Again, AP reporter Matt Lee confronts a US State Department spokesman over seemingly incongruous positions held by the US administration when it comes to dealing with Israel and the Palestinians.
The administration called on BOTH sides to take action to reduce tensions, ignoring the fact that the Palestinian leadership is inciting terrorism.
This is extremely disappointing. This is NOT how Israel expects its allies to defend it.
