Senior Palestinian leader Jibril Rajoub is a pragmatic terrorist leader. He has called for violence against Israel, but wants it focused on settlers and military. Attacking Tel Aviv, he has said, would not help them continue to gain international support.
It’s for this reason and one other that Rajoub’s current medical treatments are so ironic. To receive them properly, he’s gone to Tel Aviv.
The other irony is that Palestinians are not allowed to receive medical treatment in Israel, a rule enforced on their people by Palestinian leadership. The reason: Israel objected to the Palestinians paying large salaries to the families of terrorists who attack Israel. Palestinian leadership wants Israel to not only accept their terrorist attacks, but to also help pay for them.
Observation after watching Tweet impressions in real time on analytics: @Jerusalem_Post stories I Tweet get the lowest initial impressions. By far. Not even close. Is the "algorithm" anti-Semitic?

Clearly, he and others in Palestinian leadership have no problem calling for the destruction of Israel and getting as much international support as possible while simultaneously looking to Israel when they need help.
Israel and the United States have spent decades being the countries that everyone hates while simultaneously being called upon by those who hate us to come to the rescue when they need us. Convenient hatred, I suppose.
