Letting untruth set the agenda

Reader comment on item: Trust the Palestinian Authority?

The fact that they use this kind of double speak indicates that it works. I can understand their sympathisers hanging onto and promoting these words, such is the way of mankind, especially those desperate to believe something. However this would not be a terrible problem if the West and especially the Jewish people were not, effectively, deceived by these words as well. Really, the people of the West (and especially Israel) will only have themselves to blame if they are eventually overcome by those hostile to freedom, tolerance, and the western way of life if they continue to give any credence to blatant untruths and deceptions.
