Netanyahu to blame for violent mood

A small Palestinian child was killed and his family severely injured in a suspected attack by extremist Jewish settlers in the West Bank on Friday. The centre-left daily Politiken blames Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the violence: "For far too long Netanyahu has turned a blind eye to the acts of extremist settlers who are trying to gain more territory and extend their dominance. At the same time the head of government is trying to brand calls to end settlements in the Palestinian territories as hatred of Israel. Israel has no right to appropriate Palestinian land. In doing so it is offending not just the Palestinians, who are quite rightly protesting the ongoing Israeli occupation, but it also self-destructively endangering the country's democratic development."
