The Irony Of The Palestine Papers
Has anyone else noticed the irony?
Year after year we see the media unquestioningly accept every claim and every statement made by the Palestinians.
Whether it was about the Israeli government, the IDF, or the settlers: the media printed the Palestinian narrative first, asked questions later (maybe)--and don't even ask about corrections.
Now, we have the Palestinian Papers--with the apparent Palestinian account of peace negotiations, with accusations of betrayal of the Palestinian Arabs.
Abbas and friends cannot backtrack fast enough with claims of halftruths being published.
Gee, if you cannot trust the Palestinian Arabs--who can you trust?
