Holy moral equivalence!

The Middle East 'quartet' met in Washington on Wednesday and issued a statement equating the institutionalized violence and incitement of the 'Palestinian Authority' with imaginary 'settler violence.'
"Noting the significant progress on security achieved by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, the Quartet calls on the Palestinian Authority to continue to make every effort to improve law and order, to fight violent extremism, and to end incitement," the statement read. "The Quartet also expressed its concern over ongoing settler violence and incitement in the West Bank and calls on Israel to take effective measures, including bringing the perpetrators of such acts to justice."

The statement came at the end of a meeting in Washington attended by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Quartet envoy Tony Blair and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.
Any 'significant improvement' in the level of violence by the 'Palestinians' is the result of IDF activity in Judea and Samaria. And any 'settler violence' is being perpetrated by individuals - and not by the Israeli government - and is handled harshly by the IDF.

What could go wrong?
