Prime Minister Netanyahu at last week's cabinet meeting.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, that Israel, at this point, must receive something clear in return, if it is going to release any more terrorists to the Palestinian Authority. Netanyahu stated that in a few days either the situation will be resolved or it will blow up.

If an agreement is reached it will be brought before the cabinet for a vote. Netanyahu does not want the peace talks to end after Israel releases the last batch of terrorists.

The statements were made at a meeting of Likud ministers.

At the start of the meeting, Netanyahu made the following statement on other important subjects:

“Over the weekend we experienced an incident on the Golan Heights. The IDF foiled an attempt to infiltrate the border and hit those who approached the fence. We will continue to respond to any attempt to attack us and to the best of our ability, as initiated policy, we will foil these attacks before they occur. This is the essence of our ongoing policy; it works and is achieving results.

Over the weekend the UN Human Rights Council condemned Israel five times, this at a time when the slaughter in Syria is continuing, innocent people are being hung in the Middle East and human rights are being eroded. In many countries free media are being shut down and the UN Human Rights Council decides to condemn Israel for closing off a balcony. This is absurd. This march of hypocrisy is continuing and we will continue to condemn it and expose it.

Over the weekend we received an A+ credit rating, a sign that the Israeli economy is in good shape. I assume that this is also connected, not only to the fact that the unemployment rate is among the lowest that we have seen in many years, but also to the fact that relative to other Western economies, and in the world in general, the Israeli economy is in good condition, and we will work so that it will be even better.”

  1. we must tell Kerry and Obama the same answer that U.S. spokeswoman Jen Pskai gave us on Pollard. (who killed no one):

    "There are no plans to release Jonathan Pollard at the moment,” said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. “Jonathan Pollard was convicted of espionage against the United States – a very serious crime. He was sentenced to life and is currently serving his sentence.”

  2. Hopefully the situation will blow up in Netanyahu's face and end the insanity of Israel trying to make peace with the Arabs who don't want peace. What Netanyahu is trying to do is give the Arabs a "piece" of Israel in exchange for a worthless "piece" of paper. All this in the hope of Nobel Peace Prize, such as was awarded to Arafat and Obama.

  3. What was it that Pollard gave to Israel?
    I believe it was info that the USN was spying on the IDF in the Yom Kipper war, and this led to the IAF bombing the Liberty which was giving the Arabs info of what and where the iDF was.
    But wikll we evr know the truth?
    Obviously, the US does not want Pollard released because he will tell Israel and the wolrd how the US was hopibg that the Arabs would defeat Israel.

  4. Actually the only reason Netanyahu is interested in delaying the end of peace talks is for political reasons. It keeps the PA from going to the UN and the International Criminal court. It delays European boycott's and it runs out the clock on the most anti Israel president in history (and that includes Jimmy Carter).

  5. The UN cares nothing about human rights. They are worse than hypocrites, they are worse than enablers. The UN actually supports those who commit the most egregious human rights abuses on earth. I wish my country, the U.S., would kick the UN out of New York and take back that prime real estate.

  6. @ Markus Brajtman:
    I like much of what you post.
    I believe Jonathan Pollard should be released immediately and that his case was handled very unjustly by the United States.
    However, the Liberty was not spying on the IDF. The IDF did not attack it intentionally.
    Also, Pollard had no direct or indirect involvement with this situation.
    Please, take it from a sympathizer, and withdraw your post. It is both incorrect and damaging toPollard, the United States, and to Israel.

  7. WE MUST INSIST THAT JONATHAN POLLARD BE TRANSFERRED TO AN ISRAELI HOSPITAL SO THAT HE HAS A CHANCE TO LIVE.QUIT THE BS..HE NEVER DID ANYTHING DANGEROUS TO AMERICA…FOOLED BY THE US GOV'T..LET'S PUT THAT ASIDE..SEND HIM HOME SO THAT WE DON'T ACCUSE THE US OF A MORE SERIOUS CRIME.DO THE RIGHT THING NOWAMERICA. WHERE IS OUR ENERGETIC PRESIDENT ..HAS SHIMON PERES LOST HIS TONGUE WHEN HELPING POLLARD..IS POLLARD YOUR ENEMY,SHIMON?HAS OUR PRESIDENT LOST IT?

  8. Not one terrorist should be released until Abbas recognizes the land of Israel as the Home of the Jewish people and puts the Jewish state back on all official government maps,school maps,etc,in writing calls on all Palestinians to stop their incitement against Jewish Israelis,in their schools,mosques,media and further declares that any one that incites will be jailed for 15 years.Until that happens Netanyahu is basing his policy on hope more than reality.
