The clever anti-Zionists are those who grasp the great benefits of having Israelis – and Jews - leading the campaign to delegitimize the Jewish state. This is what Netanyahu did. He had opened one other Pandora box that can lead to more delegitimization of his state. Indirectly

Let's remember, the likes of Shimon Peres and even Netanyahu are the most harmful to our cause. They de facto are lying, by continuing to portray the Palestinian Authority as "peace partner", refusing to say what PA really is, the unwillingness to say the land is ours and Oslo disaster, the bid to give away OUR land for the sake of peace was a huge mistake. Those types, high profile, well known Israeli officials - who lack the courage of even say what Goldstone said "I was played for a fool". In the Wye Clinton played Netanyahu for a fool; now Obama and Erdoğan played his too. Israel has nothing to apologize, but she always does no matter how right she is. She gives away her dignity and respect.

Since Israel's leadership jumped for joy to accept the partition of Israel in 1947, indeed, in every encounter, the Israeli government has left the Moslems better off than they were before. Israel is the loser on every turn, whether it is the loss of lives, land, deterrence, dignity or respect. ALL. Netanyahu's apology to Erdoğan was just other fuel thrown into the already burning bush….just more of the very same. We are clamoring for real leadership!
