Response to Purveyor (Original post)

46. I only got through the first sentence of the article ...

Source: Jerusalem Post

A day after US columnist Jeffrey Goldberg quoted US President Barack Obama as saying that Israel under Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu does not know what is in its own best interest, ...


When I had to doubt the veracity of whatever else followed.

First, Goldberg did not quote President Obama, but rather an administration spokesperson. Secondly, the quote from the story was:

“We believe these actions are counterproductive and make it harder to resume direct negotiations or achieve a two-state solution,”


Which doesn't speak to what is in one's best interests; rather, it speaks to one's actions that are intended to further one's interests. One can know it is in one's best interest to be seen as honest and truthful; but when someone points out instances where you are dishonest and/or untruthful, that person isn't questioning your knowledge, but rather your actions.
