Prodi breaks the taboo, but then wimps out

This is another illustration of Israel owns or attemps to own legislators and political parties.

Italian Premier Romano Prodi has suggested, as did the report by UK Parliament on the Middle East, that there should dialog with Hamas. Already, Israel propaganda is wailing that Prodi coddles the "rapists" of Israel. The Center Right (the former Christian Democrats of Italy) now demands that Prodi justify his remarks before Parlamento.

I am tempted to praise Prodi's courgage, but, per his spokeman, he has backpeddled with the following contractory statment: "The Premier calls for opening of dialog but this is not a course correction, i.e., I didn't mean it.
