Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has an incredible capacity to create violence when there is violence throughout the Middle East. At a time when it is important to avoid any further violence in the region, the man who must always come across as the toughest guy west of the West Bank is ready to initiate rock throwing, bullets flying and a few Palestinians biting the dust. He has announced this is just the right time to go ahead and build 454 new homes in East Jerusalem.
US State Department spokesperson suggested, “we view this activity as illegitimate and counterproductive to the cause of peace.” So, who ever said Bibi Netanyahu wanted peace? As long as there is violence, he gets more votes.
