Benetton fails to provoke with Netanyahu-Abbas kiss

The controversial Benetton Unhate Foundation campaign has been greeted with a mixture of amusement and indifference in Israel.

The controversial Benetton Unhate Foundation campaign picture of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kissing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu-Mazen) has been greeted with a mixture of amusement and indifference in Israel.

This is in contrast to the vociferous Vatican protests over the picture of Pope Benedict XVI kissing Egypt's Grand Sheikh of the Al-Azhar Mosque Mohammad Ahmed Al Tayeb, which resulted in the ad being pulled.

Other images include President Barack Obama kissing Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, and French President Nicholas Sarkozi kissing German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
