The opening statement by Prime Minister Netanyahu at the start of the weekly government cabinet meeting:

“In recent months the State of Israel has conducted negotiations with the Palestinians in order to reach a33 peace agreement. Israelis expect peace, a genuine peace, in which our vital national interests are assured, with security first and foremost. During these talks we carried out difficult steps and showed a willingness to continue implementing moves that were not easy, in the coming months as well, in order to create a framework that would allow for putting an end to the conflict between us. Just as we were about to enter into that framework for the continuation of the negotiations, Abu Mazen hastened to declare that he is not prepared even to discuss recognizing Israel as the national state of the Jewish People, which we have made clear to both the President of the United States and to other world leaders as well.

To my regret as we reached the moment before agreeing on the continuation of the talks, the Palestinian leadership hastened to unilaterally request to accede to 14 international treaties. Thus the Palestinians substantially violated the understandings that were reached with American involvement. The Palestinians’ threats to appeal to the UN will not affect us. The Palestinians have much to lose by this unilateral move. They will achieve a state only by direct negotiations, not by empty statements and not by unilateral moves. These will only push a peace agreement farther away and unilateral steps on their part will be met with unilateral steps on our part. We are ready to continue the talks but not at any price.”

  1. Jason Reaney says:

    Netanyahu, you need to be firm with your people and give them an easier living lifestyle then maybe they will join the forces to help defeat these arab idiots

  2. Tony Mark says:

    The Palestinians are always Violating The Agreements. But Its easier for them to convince the International Community, Other wise.

  3. Karen Bryant says:

    No surprise there .

  4. PM Netanyahu is speaking the truth, however, Abbas and his backers, the Obama administration, and many world leaders have great difficulty accepting and speaking truth. Therefore, what we can expect from them, is more vilification and condemnation of Israel and, no doubt, more millions of monetary donations to Hamas, PLO, their fellow perpetrators of terrorism…not only in the middle east, but worldwide!

  5. Carlos Font says:

    What to do? I humbly suggesr that the Israeli and U.S. government get used to the fact that Palestinians are always going to lie. It's part of their religion. Perhaps pray for a change of leadership that is truthful. Fat chance!

  6. Mitch Cohen says:

    I am with Bib and would follow him into battle.
    Stay Strong.

  7. Jean Perles says:

    Israel is God Almighty’s land
    Israel belongs to GOD given by GOD to the jews

  8. Charles Case says:

    Typical Palestinian treachery.

  9. The only way to send out the arab palestinian is to make hell East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza by cutting electricity, water, and other items, and taxing.

  10. I think Kerry is a joke.

  11. Ted Sones says:

    Truth always hurts.My congratulations to the Prime Minister and his cabinet for standing ground for a change by not giving in to the demands of the ignorant Kerry and his sick administration in Washington. Also give thanks to Adonai for putting the spirit of stubbornness in the Arabs and the Palestinians.. We Canadians will keep our commitments to Israel even if the slimy American Administration falters with their useless words. Adonai is in charge of His land!

  12. It is a tragedy that the world becomes "blind" when a involves the Jewish people. It would seem that we are not entitled to the right of self defense, we must attack the SS as they lead us to the gas chambers as that would bean act of provocation and not proportionate and lead to the world instituting BDS sanctions against us.

  13. The State of Israel must kill all the Arab terrorists, including those who are imprisoned, because the Arab terrorists are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, and it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. The war enemies must be killed immediately, and not submitted to trial. The State of Israel must kill the Arab terrorists, instead of arresting them.
    Binyamin Netanyahu must explain to Barak Obama and to all nations that God gave to Israel all the Land of Canaan, which includes all the Palestine, as it is written in the Bible, in Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12 and Numbers 34:13-29 and Deuteronomy 3:8, and that Israel possessed that land since the year 1466 BCE, and that the Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE, so that all the Palestine belongs to Israel, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and the Arabs are invaders and must go back to their land, that is Arabia.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:32 and 34:12 and Deuteronomy 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine", and it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called “Palestine”. Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.

  14. I may be very wrong but I can't believe in my right mind that BB ONCE thought that the peace negotiations could succeed. He is a very wise man and I'm sure he knew all along that the arabs won't make peace. The only pity is that he went along and set the terrorists free. He should have kept them in jail and wipe Abbas and his cronies off the earth. The time has come to end this madness once and for all. There will never be peace as long as there is irrational people who tries to reign so-called palestine and then we haven't even start discussing that mad man in Iran

  15. Bad peace is better than good war.

  16. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    All of the so-called peace-talks have gone too far for too long time. Israel’s adversaries aren’t going to be satisfied whatsoever. Abbas and consorts want all of their claimed “Palestine” that’s to say all of Israel.

  17. Prince Mqedlana says:

    Bibi you never cease to surprise,I mean why would you even enter into negotiations with someone who is trying to attain something from you which they never had before but you're still willing to give it to them anyway!!!

  18. Dean Petree says:

    God bless Israel, and Netanyahu.

  19. In the US there is a phrase give a man enough rope and he will hang himself.
    abbas is doing this (hopefully). Now will the media cover the news accurately? Abbashas said that they want not only "Palestine" but it has to be Jew free. Americans do not understand the mid east situation. How can they when their President thinks that the conflict has gone on for only 70 years?

  20. TRUE PEACE COMES FROM OUR FATHER ABOVE.

  21. In 1982 Rebbe Schnersohn gave a public address titled"Since Abraham's Covenant,G-D FORBIDS Us to Give Away The Land"Because his words to date have not been heeded,every time an Israeli government has given land for peace,instead of peace the Jews of Israel received death and destruction.It is time for Netanyahu to bring G-D'S message to the U.N. whose members Christian bible,Muslim Koran(Sura 05) and Torah all state that G-D gave all of the land to the Jewish people for all eternity,over 3,300 years ago.Then ask the members whether they believe in their religious documents or not.

  22. The will be PEACE,there will be PEACE,and the PEACE we need only Comes from OUR HEAVENLY Father…"My PEACE i give unto to you,not that which comes from The World,but That which comes from HEAVEN above".

  23. Do they really want peace??

  24. Bibi tell them all to kiss your behind

  25. Get barrack Husain out of there and bring in vlad. Something will happen. Vlad is not a shortie cholerya.

  26. When talks collapse Israel is always blamed! What a great surprise

  27. Danny Willis says:

    America needs to let Israel govern Israel just back them as an ally

  28. Just so you know the American people stand w/Israel

  29. God Bless you Israel, stay strong and stay true, God has your back. Shalom!

  30. Israel now needs to cease all talks with the Palestinians,and get rid fo the PA ,and Abbas.

  31. Seeing all else, according to human wisdom, has apparently failed, I also think that it is Time for Israel to take The Word of their G-D to heart and to act accordingly before the nations and the UN. May Hashem grant Mr Netanyahu the courage to do so.

  32. Personally, I think that BB was 'buying more time' even though he knew – from his Torah he knows and studies each Friday in the Knesset – that 'Peace' would not be achieved this way.

  33. It is much, much more than a 'tragedy' – it is the greatest injustice and SIN ever committed on Planet Earth. May The Lord God of Israel continue to protect His people – and – please, Dear Lord! – show undeserved mercy to the nations of the earth.

  34. In today's religious 'anything goes'-climate, it seems almost preposterous to dare taking the Word of The God of Israel serious. However – what's left over to do? HE seems to be closing all doors and inroads … come on, Israel, I challenge you to follow His Word – what do you have to loose?

  35. perhaps you should look now to the Prince of Peace.
