Obligation or Suggestion -- part II

Commenting on the earlier blog entry, Obligation or Suggestion, CAMERA's TS has pointed out another example of road map double standard in the New York Times.

"In a news analysis today, Times reporter Steven Weisman also fell into the 'road map' double standard trap--Israeli steps under the "road map" are designated as such, whereas Palestinian steps are simply noted as an Israeli demand."

Weisman writes:

Whatever happens, however, the United States is certain to come under another round of pressure to keep make sure [sic] that a Gaza withdrawal leads to a resumption of talks to create a contiguous Palestinian state, as called for in the "road map" peace plan.

The Israelis say that further steps will have to be contingent on Mr. Abbas disarming militant groups and dismantling the "terrorist infrastructure," the same prerequisites that have impeded negotiations so far.
