(Muslim Press) - United States' ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro has strongly condemned Tel Aviv for treating Palestinians unjustly. He went on to say that the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu applies separate standards of justice for Israel and Palestinians. “Too many attacks on Palestinians lack a vigorous investigation or response by Israeli authorities; too much vigilantism goes unchecked; and at times there seem to be two standards of adherence to the rule of law: one for Israelis and another for Palestinians,” Dan Shapiro said at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference on Monday.
