Israel to Get Nothing but Talk for Freeing 104 Terrorists

Israel is to free 104 terrorists so Kerry can take the credit for the resumption of “direct talks,” but what will be on the agenda? Peace? Recognizing Israel? No. The PA will talk about a timetable for talks.
Talk is not cheap: Netanyahu wants to free 104 terrorists, and then Abbas is willing to talk about talking

Talk is not cheap: Netanyahu wants to free 104 terrorists, and then Abbas is willing to talk about talking

The Number One item on the agenda this week at the scheduled resumption of direct talks between the Palestinian Authority and Israel is nothing more than setting a timetable for continuing talks and deciding what will be discussed.

The following items are not on the agenda: Jerusalem, final borders, the Arab demands for flooding Israel with foreign Arabs claiming Israel as their home, incitement, recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and the status of Jews in a future PA state.

The script is a replay of hundreds of previous Israeli “goodwill gestures” to save the political life of  chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Israel removed roadblocks, and the Palestinian Authority continues to incite.

Israel removed checkpoints, and Palestinian Authority terrorists use the opening to shoot and kill Jews.

Israel released more than 1,000 terrorists to bring back home kidnapped Gilad Shalit, and dozens of the terrorists went back to their pastime of attacking Jews.

This time around. Israel is receiving nothing by talk.

Tuesday’s scheduled direct talks will deal with future talks, Haaretz reported.

In other words, as soon as Israel starts to free terrorists, Abbas can play his game of stretching the rubber band again.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry  and Palestinian Authority and Israel are acting as if they don’t know what the issues are.

In fact , they don’t.

For Kerry, the issue is forcing both sides to sign a piece of paper and win the prize as artificial peacemaker,.

For Netanyahu, the issue is forfeiting Jewish sovereignty over more than 100 Jewish communities and expelling Jews in return for securing security and putting an end to Palestinian Authority demands.

For Abbas, the issue is winning another concession from Israel without giving up anything, a strategy that has worked for 20 years.

Memories are short.

Two years ago, President Barack Obama brought Abbas and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu together for a well-publicized resumption of direct talks. That was the first day of the renewed direct talks.

It also was the last day.

  1. bibi wants to release terrorists? there seems to be a deep friendship between likud and hamas

  2. Even d best can be fool.

  3. Unfortunately Israel may get more deaths of their people because of this grave error Bibi Andrew Obama is doing. I’m very very ashamed of my Presidents pressuring Israel to do this. God will punish Obama as He did Bush with Hurricane Katrina and economic crash. Bibi will be punished as Sharon was if the land is given away.

  4. Lisa Kamins says:

    you said< "For Netanyahu, the issue is forfeiting Jewish sovereignty over more than 100 Jewish communities and expelling Jews in return for securing security and putting an end to Palestinian Authority demands." there will be no securing security, there be only terror against Jews. you said that in this article too, I think you were only trying to say what Netanyahu is thinking. Netanyahu has changed a lot in the lost 30 years and even more in the last 10 years. sad, pathetic, and all we can do it protest and pray that HaSh-m will save us from our elected politicians.

  5. Cody Flecker says:

    Israel is finished as a country. To give into terrorism by releasing murderers who have Jewish Blood on their hands is the real crime. More than that, to be the lap dog for Kerry and Obama is the worst crime. To invest in Israel or make Aliya given this terrible news makes you a lunatic. Why invest in a country that cares so little for its own citizens, its own children, and its own students? Israel deserves to be punished for this tragic mistake.

  6. Robert, your weird..

  7. Anonymous says:

    tragically Jewish Blood has become way too inexpensive, Bibi has forgotten the first responsibility of a country is to protect it's citizens.

  8. hmmm. why would Bibi do this?

  9. Alan Kardon says:

    This is the worst deal I have ever heard of. Release terrorist so you can talk to terrorist that demand you give up all of Israel. Hope this will not be allowed by Israel.

  10. Alan Kardon says:

    Learned that from Obama.

  11. Alan Kardon says:

    Israel should not be penalized for this mistake. Bibi, Barack Hussein and John Kerry should be penalized for this stupidity.

  12. Vim Njicki says:

    I am heart sick that what we see happening in the Bible is being played out. Israel is the Apple of God's eye. He said his land is not to be divided and Israel thinks making peace with its enemies whom the Lord himself will throw into the pit of Hell, is going to garner any safety. God and Jesus are your only safety net, Little Israel.

  13. Moshe Brody says:

    It is unprecedented in history that a nation should choose to exile itself from it's own country.
    This sin would exceed that that of the spies. The Jewish people in the midbar never saw Israel. Yet the Torah says that they "( referring to the next generation) will know the land that you despised" Here we are in possession of the land and we say to hashem -take it back! let the Arabs have it? Can there be a greater despising of the land and Hashem's gift than that?

  14. Gil Gilman says:

    This is a horrible price to pay for mere posturing.

  15. Yechiel Baum says:

    This is the Arab way of string along people. Don't you realize it. Best such decision fall to the Mizrahi Jews who understand how to deal with this.

  16. Gary Dalin says:

    Israel must add a condition to any release: Only if or when the P.A. ceases all anti-Semitic and anti-Israel propaganda in its media and schools for a period of at least 3mo. prior to any release and for the full duration of talks before any last batch is released. Such continued slander indicates ill will. No sense Israel giving good will gestures while they spit venom.

  17. I legally sue by international laws in behalf of family, family mebers wich was murdered by arab terrorists to Mr. Barack Obama, Mr.John Kerry, and Bejamin Netanyahu by releasing terrorists from the jails, the citation will receive in the next days.

  18. Lloyd Bergner says:

    An obvious lose-lose for Eretz Yisrael, and proof- positive that Bibi and his cabinet have lost all sense of reality. Lessons of the past have not been learned.

  19. How can Netanyahu do such a thing? He can't be trusted anymore.

  20. How can Netanyahu do such a thing? He can't be trusted anymore.

  21. Hani Kanbar says:

    terrorist must remain in prison , Mr Netanyahu should not award them after killing innocent people.

  22. not so sure… i think hes smarter than we think… lets wait a bit…

  23. Jewish Press how many International papers are picking up Israel's position. Just occurred the more the press play up Israel's dilemma the more Israel can achieve world wide support. In defense of Israel's PM looking at this dilemma from a broader view and if the press make as much noise as possible the tables could turn in Israel's favor, the Yanks look like the fools they are as well as Ashton of the EU. Who government or otherwise backs Terrorists or Terrorists demands?

  25. Claudia 'Amzallag' Amor you and me think along the same lines, he's no fool and very shrewd.

  26. Good move, this should put a spanner in the works.

  27. Lisa, as a European and one who is thoroughly disgusted with Ashton's directives. In my heart I feel Israel has no alternative to take on the so called Palestinians who have 60,000 rockets trained on Southern Israel, where she has OIL. Fight the devils to the death and damn the rest of the world's opinion, this would be Churchill's advice, David King of Israel would take the devils on as well. Israel demand no release but war, you have the best trained IAF, IDF and Navy Israel can do this and win. Gaza is on the sea, subs can take out her rockets, IAF can defend you from the air and to hell with International opinion, this might just wake up Iran to the power of Israel.
