For the second time in a week, Haaretz has a reluctant exclusive on how Israel's hated, right-wing, war-mongering, intransigent, anti-peace prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has actually been working behind the scenes to try to find a permanent peaceful solution.

Last week it reported that Netanyahu's negotiators accepted an American framework for peace - and Abbas rejected it. Abbas then ignored a later American framework that tilted more his way.

This week Haaretz reports that Netanyahu held a secret meeting with Egyptian leader Sisi along with Labor party leader Isaac Herzog to see if he could put together a coalition government that could make peace.

This doesn't exactly jibe with the way that Haaretz normally reports on Netanyahu and Likud.

But don't worry: Haaretz won't change its reporting just because it has proven its own bias to be wrong.

In this very article about the meeting with Sisi, Haaretz throws in this sentence:

In mid-May, shortly after that meeting, Sissi gave a memorable speech at the dedication of an Egyptian power plant, calling on Palestinians and Israelis to take advantage of “a realistic and great opportunity” and reach an agreement that would end the conflict. He even called on Israeli political parties to agree to the process.
These talks, like the regional initiative, failed due to Netanyahu’s refusal to give the Palestinians what was required. 
Not what Palestinians "demanded" -but what Haaretz states as fact is required for peace.

Abbas' intransigence is swept under a rug, while Netanyahu's flexibility is dismissed as just more intransigence. Palestinian demands are "requirements for peace" while Netanyahu's demands for security are just posturing to avoid peace.

Haaretz did some great reporting, but it is so blinded by hate that it cannot even understand what it is writing.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
