More of the Same Please

While the official US condemnation of Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich’s outrageous statement regarding the Palestinian town of Huwara certainly was warranted, one would wish that we would hear similar condemnations when senior Palestinian officials engage in incitement. While the US generally opposes Palestinian incitement and rightly so, the State Department declines to issue public criticism of specific cases of high-level Palestinian incitement. And so while this condemnation is welcome, more of the same is wanted – regarding all sides please.
