Det spiller ingen rolle om angrep på jøder kan dokumenteres. Palestinerne tror det de vil. De gjør morderne om til uskyldige ofre og føler seg berettiget til å hevne dem.
Ønsketenkningen og skjønnmalingen kommer fra øverste hold. President Mahmoud Abbas ga et eksempel da han beskyldte Israel for å ha skutt ned en 13-åring med kaldt blod.
