Where's the Coverage? Palestinian Official Praises Hitler, Says Goal of 2 States is Elimination of Israel

Tawfiq Tirawi, a senior Fatah official and former intelligence chief of the Palestinian Authority, this month defended Hitler's morals and praised him as brave, and asserted that a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip with Jerusalem as its capital would be "just a phase" toward eliminating Israel.

The Guardian's Peter Beaumont and Reuters' Luke Baker decided it was important to publish about some offensive statements made by an Israeli who, while over a decade ago had been an aid to Benjamin Netanyahu, is currently working in the private sector. But not about the much more outrageous statements by Tirawi, who is still today a high-ranking member of Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party.

Why not? Where's the coverage?
