And why has it reported, falsely, that Germany plans on proposing a resolution for the EU recognizing a Palestinian State within a year if there is no peace agreement? Why? To stir passions that’s why. And to engender hostility. The Associated Press reports

The German government says reports are false that Germany proposed a resolution for the EU to recognize an independent Palestinian state within a year if no peace agreement is reached by then. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Stefan Bredohl said Monday the report in Israeli daily Ma’ariv “is entirely unfounded.”

Ma’ariv understands that the best way to manipulate public opinion is to deceive.  It’s the way governments have been manipulating citizens since there have been governments.
