A complacent West confronts a smug Israel

Words can act as bombs by creating panic and disarray so that the adversary becomes totally confused. Israel has written the book on how to get its way by throwing the ‘word bomb.’

Isn’t it obvious that the announcement to build 1,600 new homes in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo is part of a contrived plan? After all, the prime minister must have had many discussions of these plans with his interior minister. He showed this by replying quickly to the facts concerning the planned construction. Besides, why was it necessary for the interior minister to make a public disclosure? To whom was he disclosing the information? Unless, the world recognizes the orderliness of the disorderly conduct, the Middle East will continue its path of additional destruction. The well contrived plan of bombing the ‘negotiations’ with a seemingly off-hand remark that the Interior Ministry plans 1,600 new homes for East Jerusalem has had its effects.
