Double entendres can be understood in many ways

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory
in response to reader comment: Legitimising the Enemy.

Submitted by Martin J. Malliet (Belgium), Sep 12, 2018 at 11:50

So does an article not become informative because of your own ignorance. Obviously the article was not informative enough about the reason why the Israeli Government opposes the slashing of aid to the Palestinians. (it would add enormously to the cost already borne by Israel in handling their kite-flying enemies.) That's what I meant in my other comment about Jared Kushner's efforts getting misunderstood. They already are. That's why Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron must urgently step in and propose to redirect European aid from UNRWA to the Israeli Government.
