60 Minutes Australia interviewed Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, who not only maintained composure amidst the barrage of biased interrogation but also handily repulsed all questions aimed at finding what the Israelis are doing wrong and how the Israelis are "oppressing the Palestinians.”

The interviewer seemed concerned about why some “Palestinians” don’t have equal opportunities, and instead of questioning Arab leadership, sought to blame the Israelis, but the Deputy Minister reminded him of the Palestinian Authority's constant refusal of independence and democratic statehood.

"The Palestinian leaderrship never spoke of democratic values," she said. "Israel did not come readymade, we had to work to make it into a flourishing state."

This video ends with Hotovely saying, “So maybe you should have this interview with a 'Palestinian' leader and ask him ‘Why did you refuse time after time to have independence? What are you afraid of?'”
