För palestinierna är sanning propaganda och propaganda sanning

Mahmoud Abbas politiska rådgivare Nimr Hammad jämför Israels premiärminister Netanyahu med Nazitysklands propagandaminister Joseph Goebbels.
Varför? Jo därför att Netanyahu i ett tal igen inbjudit Abbas att återvända till förhandlingsbordet men samtidigt konstaterat att det inte verkar finnas något intresse från den palestinska sidan som i stället arbetar för att internationalisera konflikten.

PA official: Netanyahu implements Nazi strategy to blame PA for stagnation in negotiations  (Jerusalem Post)
"... The adviser accused Netanyahu of using Goebbel's propaganda strategy in order to persuade the international pubic that the PA is the source of stagnation in Arab-Israeli peace negotiations.

"Netanyahu implemented propaganda and lying in the hopes that the international community will accept his claims," Hammad said in an interview with a Palestinian network.

His words were a reaction to Netanyahu's speech Tuesday at a conference at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center.

... Netanyahu, after enumerating the dangers in the region, said there may be an opening with the Palestinians because some of the Arab states “might be in a position to influence the Palestinians to adopt a more conciliatory and positive approach.”

From both the Israeli and Palestinian perspectives, he said, it makes sense to “try to negotiate a real deal of a demilitarized [Palestinian] state that recognizes the nation state of the Jewish people.”

Rather than doing that, he asserted, the PA prefers internationalizing the conflict. “I again call on [PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas to again return to negotiations without preconditions,” he said, “but I also know he has very little reason to talk.”

Netanyahu asked what incentive Abbas has to return to talks.

“They refuse to negotiate, and then get international pressure, sanctions and boycotts on Israel for there not being negotiations,” he said. “And there are those who attempt to impose terms in the [UN] Security Council because there are no talks, and some pretend the dangers we face are not real dangers at all.”
