Speaking at the Security Conference in Munich on Sunday, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said he was hoping negotiations with the Palestinians will work out, but should there not be a deal, “we’ll get by.”

Yaalon said there is no Palestinian leadership in place which is willing to put an end to the conflict with Israel.

Regarding Iran, Yaalon said that its plan is to revive its economy, which has taken a beating from Western sanctions, and once this is achieved, it will proceed with its military nuclear plans.

Yaalon stressed that the Iranian nuclear plan had to be stopped, one way or another.

The Munich Security Conference (MSC) is an annual conference on international security policy, held at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, Germany. Over the past four decades, it has become the most important independent forum for the exchange of views by international security policy decision-makers. Each year it brings together about 350 senior figures from more than 70 countries around the world to engage in an intensive debate on current and future security challenges.

According to the Jerusalem Post, on Friday, Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal said at the Conference that Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni is the right person to lead Israel’s negotiating team with the Palestinians.

Livni called the Arab initiative, which calls for a full Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 border, “a positive development.”

Would the Saudis consider hiring Livni away?

  1. Ben II says:

    they can have her and Shimon Peres, 2 worthless traitors.

  2. Joe Krendel says:

    They can have her as a ho Lapid as a pimp and Peres Shimon as a loko

  3. If the Saudis are so fond of Livni they should hire her because she really should work for then and NOT FOR ISRAEL. There are also in Israel leftis who think there are doing right when their policies are all wrong. Israel should NEVER go yo the Auchwitz borders of 1948 and I am sure if her family was living in Judea or Samaria she would not agree to return any part of it to the enemy would can't wait to get rid of every Jew. For your information for the PA even Tel Aviv is a settlement bowing to the enemy won't bring PEACE. It will bring disaster.

    Well, all of Israel consists of occupiers following the logic of Pal-Arabs and Arabs in general. Don’t fall in the deadly pit, our enemies are building up around the “Peace-Talks”. On world-scale Goebbels-like arguments are distributed to world opinion that Jews in Israel are of the settler-stock found in apartheid South Africa. The logic follows that the Jewish People have to leave the Middle East. – The only way to deal with this grave misinformation is to counter-attack the antagonists. Time and again some friends of Israel and like-minded have not alone problematized the right for Pal-Arabs to claim any bit of land in Eretz Israel but altogether problematized their claim of peoplehood. They are not “Palestinians” per se, they are Syrians, Egyptians, Saudis, and Jordanians (in fact genuine “Palestinians”). Summa: Palestinians are non-existent, period!
