It seems that for the prime minister, serving a fleeting political interest was worth the price of minimizing Adolf Hitler's determination to destroy Europe's Jews.



It took a post on Benjamin Netanyahu's Facebook page, a half-apologetic, half-defensive statement before boarding a Berlin-bound plane, and a passive-aggressive interview with his new, state-of-the-art parrot, MK Tzachi Hanegbi, to excuse Netanyahu's embarrassing gaffe on the subject most important to him – the Holocaust.

[...] The irony is that Netanyahu said this in a speech he described as the Palestinians' "10 lies" speech. At the end, he said our struggle is against terror, "but I think the bigger war we must fight is the war over facts." Over facts, one asks, or on facts?
