No Gov’t Majority for Pollard-Talks Deal

PA President Abbas's refusal to publicly condemn the terror attack that killed Baruch Mizrachi is putting a damper on the parade.
Aaronovitch and Police

After PA President Abbas refused to publicly condemn the terror attack that killed senior police officer Baruch Mizrachi, Minister Yitchak Aharonovitch told Army Radio that he opposes extending the talks, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post.

Minister of Internal Security Yitzhak Aharonovitch is in charge of the Israeli police.

With the loss of Aharonovitch’s support, PM Netanyahu no longer has a majority in his government in favor of extending talks with the PA.

Abbas supposedly condemned the attack in a private meeting with the radical left-wing political party Meretz, but he has refused to publicly condemn the attack in Arabic for consumption by his own people, or even publicly to the Israeli media. In fact, Abbas’s spokesman explicitly stated that Abbas did not condemn the attack, even in the private meeting.

The deal under discussion is that Israel will release more terrorists, like those that killed Baruch Mizrachi on the eve of Passover, the U.S. will commute Jonathan Pollard’s remaining prison sentence, and the Palestinian Authority will agree to extend the peace talks with Israel.

Releasing more terrorists, particularly Israeli-Arab terrorists is coming under heavy fire from within the government’s coalition.

  6. And this is the garbage that that idiot Kerry is pushing Israel to sign a peace treaty with. But if a Palestinian throwing rocks is hit by a rubber bullet you do not hear the end of it from this used condom.

  8. Ben II says:

    Netanyahu is a coward and traitor for holding talks with and releasing Islamic terrorists, he’s a disgrace to his brother’s memory.

  9. Uzi Kattan says:

    Netanyahu wants a terrorists state in the heart of Israel and has allowed Arab violence to escalate while freeing terrorists. Israel needs a real right wing government. Netanyahu was the one who abandoned Pollard in 1996 and caused him needless suffering at the hands of the US government. His mentor Shimon Peres was the one who closed the Israeli embassy's gates to Pollard.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Pollard is not worth releasing terrorists for… and Pollard agrees. Bargaining chips only work if one side values it. Israel must not let the US see Pollard as a bargaining chip. If that means Pollard dies in jail, then so be it. Soldiers and spies know the risks when they sign up. Sometimes they are called to die or suffer injury. Imprisonment for spies is the nature of the job.
