“The decision, announced by a foreign ministry spokesman on Monday, meant that the fact-finding team the council planned to send to the West Bank will not be allowed to enter the territory or Israel,” said spokesman Yigal Palmor. “The territory”; that is occupied territory, course. However, it gets even “better”, and what about this? “They systematically and serially make all kinds of decisions and condemnations against Israel without even symbolically considering our positions,” Palmor said. Oh, how unfair of them, and don’t you just want to cry your eyes out?
Strange, strange people, indeed, and don’t they realise that they don’t have a position? Still, when “our” spoilt brat throws a tantrum, it certainly throws a tantrum; “We are not working with them anymore,” Palmor said about the Geneva-based forum. “We had been participating in meetings, discussions, arranging visits to Israel. All that is over.”
