Court Acquittal of Lieberman Could Wreck Obama’s Peace Train

Obama can start praying that a Jerusalem court finds Avigdor Lieberman guilty for breach of trust. If he is acquitted, he will return as Foreign Minister, and then sparks will fly.
Lieberman or Livni is going to be a big winner when a court decides in two weeks if he is guilty of breach of trust. And one of them will be a big loser.

A Jerusalem court verdict in two weeks on a breach of trust charge against Knesset Member Avigdor Lieberman could cause a diplomatic explosion in the talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority if he is acquitted.

If found guilty, Lieberman can kiss his political career goodbye.

Lieberman vacated his office as Foreign Minister late last year after he was indicted for allegedly using his position to help advance Ze’ev Ben Aryeh as ambassador to Latvia as a reward for divulging to Lieberman details of an investigation against him. Ben Aryeh ultimately was not appointed to the post.

Lieberman and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu agreed before last winter’s elections that he would return as Foreign Minister if acquitted. In the meantime, the Prime Minister is acting Foreign Minister.

The return of Lieberman as Foreign Minister is the last thing U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wants. Justice Livni Tzipi Livni is in charge of the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, and Kerry could not have asked for anyone better

Livni, a former Likud hawk, has staked her political future as the caddy for the Obama administration’s bags. He shouts, Jump!” and she asks, “Foot first or head first?”

If Lieberman gets off the hook, he and Livni will be biting and scratching at each other. Lieberman has repeatedly said the peace talks are a waste of time given Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s refusal to accept anything less than everything.

  1. The whole case against Lieberman is fake and very possible that it was the work of either of the political left, Obama (H Clinton) or both. I h

  2. Cody Flecker says:

    Israel is the step child of the USA, and especially Obama. Once Obama makes up his mind to crush Lieberman, the die will be cast and Israel will be on its way to self destruct. Obama calls the shots in Israel, not the Israelis, and certainly not Obama's pawn Netanyahu.

  3. Let's hope Lieberman is acquitted. Livni will only go along with Obama's disastrous "peace" talks.

  4. I hope he is acquitted, Livni is too green to deal handle Peace talks. In fact there are no Peace talks, it is all hot air and demands by Abbas and his cronies. Lieberman is the man for the job, he's experienced he knows the Arabs and he doesn't take BS so I sincerely hope he is acquitted.

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    Livini is on Obama's payroll.
    There must be a close watch on the panel to ensure that the U.S. does not interfere and meet with the panel if the meeting in Rome was an indication of a under the table deal.

  6. Ron Kall says:

    I think you are way off on this one! If obysmal called the shots in Israel, Israel would have alre3ady disappeared!

    Let's hope he's acquitted and tells Kerry to "shove it" once and for all!
