Biden Speaks Palestinian

Classic Headline:

Palestinian leader joins Biden in condemning Israeli housing decision

Yep – the Vice President wasn’t too happy with an Israeli decision and gave voice to Palestinian angst while he was at it:

"I condemn the decision by the government of Israel to advance planning for new housing units in East Jerusalem," Biden said in a statement released during the meal. "The substance and timing of the announcement, particularly with the launching of proximity talks, is precisely the kind of step that undermines the trust we need right now and runs counter to the constructive discussions that I've had here in Israel."

…and “proximity talks” have always held such promise.

Israelis waking up in the morning are an affront to a large swath of Palestinians and the Palestinian leader cited is Salam Fayyad – who carries no weight in Hamas-led Gaza. If it wasn’t this housing decision then it would have been something else that raised the hackles of the Palestinians. These talks are meaningless. What’s worrisome – though not surprising – is this Administration’s instinctive venting of the Palestinian meme.
