News the HP Doesn't Cover: Netanyahu Calls Abbas for Ramadan

The Huffington Post never fails to cover news of Israelis behaving badly, but this news story of Israeli PM Netanyahu calling Palestinian "PM" Abbas to wish him a happy Ramadan didn't make it onto the HP:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Sunday night to wish him a happy Ramadan.
The two leaders, on opposing sides of stalled peace talks, rarely exchange words, and Netanyahu used the conversation to push for renewed negotiations.
“I called to send you my blessings for Ramadan,” Netanyahu said, according to a readout released by his office. “I hope that we will have the opportunity to talk to each other not only on holidays, and we will begin negotiations. This is important.”
Curse that evil Likudnik!
