Mustafa Barghouti, the general secretary of the Palestinian National Initiative party, accused Israel Defense Forces of targeting civilians tonight, following an interview Fox News did with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he argued that Hamas has been responsible for the civilian deaths.
Barghouti called the invasion of Gaza an act of aggression by Israel against struggling Palestinian civilians. As evidence, he cited U.S. secretary of state John Kerry’s private remark caught on a microphone on Sunday suggesting that Israel’s military tactics haven’t been “pinpoint” as they claim.
The political Kabuki is well choreographed, no? First, Kerry utters intentional, provocative words into a mike he knows damned well is open, and within 24 hours some Paleoswine savage is citing the laughably obvious “gaffe” in an attack on Israel.
Exit question: Is this a case of “evil minds think alike,” or did they set the whole thing up in advance?
