The Palestinian Authority backed by EU funds, has sent Bedouin into the E-1 area of Ma'aleh Adumim to claim it is part of their "history."

If Netanyahu indeed did not promise Obama to freeze building on E-1, it must have been written in some kind of Hieroglyphics. Six months after he agreed to keep E-1 off the chessboard, PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said on at least two different public occasions that Obama forced Israel to commit to prevent any construction there.

In the Israeli elections after the fall of the Obama-Livni administration in 2009, Netanyahu campaigned by boasting, “I will link Jerusalem to Ma’aleh Adumim through the neighborhood of… E1. I want to see neighborhoods in one contiguous Jewish construction.”

Ho-ho and Happy Hanukkah, but a great miracle did not happen in E-1.

It will happen one day, but only after the curtains close on the Peace Talks Follies, which so far has won the applause only of journalists who need good copy for other journalists and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to read.

  1. Anyone who is crazy and stupid enough to support anything Israeli must have their head examined. The Israelis are the dumbest people on earth and every Arab knows this. Why are the Jews in Israel so ashamed of their country that they are so willing to empty their jails, and give territory to a non people like the so called Palestinians?

  2. It is impossible to appease Kerry, Obama, the EU & the Muslims, & other terrorists…. Israel should continue its orderly growth throughout the "West Bank" & back into Gaza….. Attempting to appease will only achieve a false 7 year "Piece Treaty" with no PEACE involved….

  3. Why would Netanyahu put Livni as his main negotiator?
    Because I think Netanyahu is a clone of Livni.
    Livni who wanted to give up Israeli sovereignty over the Wailing Wall when she was Foreign Minister in Olmerts government.
    Livni wants to divide Jerusalem and give up the Jewish Golan.

    Look at some of the things Netanyahu has done.
    He apologized to Jihadist Erdogan of Turkey for Israel defending itself against Turkish terrorists on the Flotilla.
    Netanyahu freed Palestinian mass murderers not once, but Twice.
    Netanyahu says he will build in E1, but he never does as the author mentions.

  4. I am worry about Bibinochio's behaving, at last week end he was a hardliner before US and EU and now is weekliner to prohibit the construction of 20.000 settlements with the excuse about Iran with the compromise Kerry's extorsion with the "third intifada", is Bibinochio under drugs?, the best that Bibinochio should resigne inmediatelly becouse he is not capable to adress the country, by by Bibinochio!.

  5. Very Tragic that the Obama Administration is now controling both the foreign and domestic actions of the Netanyahu administration.The demands of the Palestine authority are lpushed by the US.which is forcing those demands on Israel., The so called negotiations are a farse. It is a drama directed by the USA as the spoksman for Palestian authority..
