"Moderate" Palestinian playing with fire

Why Is Fayyad Burning Israeli Products? -Dalia Itzik

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad was photographed [above] tossing Israeli products into a large bonfire, an act that involves more than a small degree of incitement against a country with whom, so he claims, he wishes to establish peaceful and neighborly relations.

Some 25,000 Palestinians employed in Israeli factories beyond the "green line" have no other alternative employment. If their government succeeds in destabilizing their employers, they will be left with no income.

Particularly now, as proximity talks develop, one might expect the Palestinians to make efforts to calm things down, to strengthen relations between the two nations and not to be dragged into a campaign of incitement.
