This is the least depressing of the recent analyses, but the comments here so far seem to have missed it — or perhaps the commenters didn’t read the article to the end?
HaAretz is a leftist newspaper so I’d advise taking any of their commentary/analysis with high-blood-pressure-levels of salt. Note that they, as leftists, can’t avoid blaming their own country for these riots!!
“He[Obimbo] will be accused of not pushing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hard enough to stop the settlements and thus indirectly quell the rising tides of anger in the Muslim world. But that’s a case of 20:20 hindsight.”
“or perhaps the commenters didnt read the article to the end?”
too much work.
why take the time to learn when you already know all the answers?
