With former Chief Palestinian Propaganda Minister Saeb Erekat being lionized by world leaders and the mainstream media after his death – including (infuriatingly) some Israeli ones – I thought I would remind you all, in a series of posts, as to who he truly was.
In July 2015, a palestinian Arab suicide bomber blew himself up in a line of people waiting to enter a shopping centre in the northern Israeli town of Netanya, killing at least five people and wounding 35 others.
Saeb Erekat condemned the attack because murdering innocents is an immoral and deplorable thing to do.
Just kidding. He did so only because it harmed palestinian interests.
