Words, Words, Words

Prime Minister Netanyahu has recently declared: "Abbas Will Be Judged By His Actions, Not By His Words."

Is that really so? Netanyahu was referring to Abbas's public statement criticizing the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenage boys "because it hurts the Palestinian cause", while at the same time criticizing the subsequent Israeli crackdown." Obviously, it was a very two-faced and qualified condemnation, but no surprise, coming as it did, from a Holocaust denier and a slimey financier of terrorism. However, let's focus not on Abbas, rather on the validity of the above words from our Prime Minister who, let's not forget, was put into office by us, and is responsible to us, the citizens of Israel.

Abbas's "actions" have been as follows:

1. Paying the salaries of all "Palestinian" terrorists - and he is an equal opportunity employer - he pays not just his own Fatah terrorists, but also Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

2. Naming streets and town squares in the Palestinian Authority- controlled cities after convicted Islamic terrorists, thereby honoring those who have killed and wounded thousands of Israelis.

3. Not repudiating his unity government with Hamas.

4. Brazenly violating all signed agreements with Israel.

How has Netanyahu been "judging" Abbas?

1. Calling him on the phone to ask for his help to find the teenage hostages.

2. In the IDF search for the boys, carefully only targeting Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, while obviously ignoring those of Fatah - Abbas's terrorists.

3. Not "holding Abbas responsible" in any way, shape, or form - not for financing terrorism, nor for naming town squares and streets after terrorists, nor for remaining in unity with  Hamas, nor for violating all signed agreements with Israel.

Perhaps it's time that we start judging our esteemed leader - Mr. Netanyahu - by HIS actions???
