The negotiations announcement came after Israel promised to release 104 Palestinian prisoners with Jewish blood on their hands.
Kerry and Livni have a lot in common. They both talk a lot and say nothing; they love themselves; and they are celebrating their return to diplomatic stardom. They may be “stars for a day.”
Kerry finally has tripped over himself, bared his not-so-hidden agenda and stated that the Palestinian Authority is a country. Asked later about the slip of the tongue, he asked, “Did I say that?”
It took Netanyahu several hours to win a respectable majority in the Cabinet to capitulate to Abbas' demand and approve the release of 104 terrorists in order to allow the renewal of direct talks in Washington on Tuesday.
The Israeli cabinet approved a bill that would require a referendum on any deal with the Palestinian Authority that would involve relinquishing sovereign Israeli...
Sandy Bloom of New York and her husband Dov of Pittsburgh suffered for years from burns in a deadly 1988 terrorist attack on a bus. Now they are suffering from the thought of the terrorists being freed.
Netanyahu threw a sugar pill at the Cabinet by proposing a change in the Basic Law for a national referendum before giving Israeli land to the PA. The Cabinet is contemplating swallowing the bitter pill – freeing 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.
The Israeli government unanimously approved the appointment of Ron Dermer, an Oleh from the US, as Israel's next ambassador to the U.S.
Naftali Bennett, Economy Minister and Jewish Home party chairman, wrote on Facebook Saturday night, “Terrorists should be killed, not released. All my life I...
One is immediately reminded of how Rabin and Sharon stacked the deck, to push through legislation and decisions that wouldn't otherwise have passed.
Netanyahu says freeing terrorists is unjust, is against public opinion, and is painful. So why do it? Because it is in the “interest of the State,” meaning John Kerry is in charge of Israel’s security.
It’s time again for Israel to turn the other cheek and express “goodwill’ to Abbas and love for peace by freeing terrorists who turn the other cheek to humanity and express their love by barbaric murders.
Bennett lost the battle for Chief Rabbis but he may have won the war. A Knesset Channel poll shows Jewish Home party as the second largest, only three seats behind the Likud and three ahead of Lapid.
Yesh Atid and party chairman Yair Lapid are facing their first charges of unethical conduct following the revelation that one of Lipid’s advisers is...
147 out of 150 members of the election body voted.
If you don’t like a law, just tear it up. That is what eight Arab MKs did last month, but Ahmed Tibi also dumped water on it at the Knesset podium. Now he is banned as Deputy Speaker and must pay a fine.
JERUSALEM – While a beaming Secretary of State John Kerry celebrated the announced resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks by enjoying a cold beer on his flight from Israel to Washington, there seemed to be some disagreement on the Palestinian side about whether there had even been an agreement to restart the talks.
Says promised referendum is a deception.
"It will prevent selling out in deals whole swaths of our homeland."
Will the Obama team release Jonathan Pollard as an example of the sensitivity and courage required by both Israelis and Palestinians?
Many in Likud are saying they're for the talks but against the 2-state solution.
The former Labor chairman is recruiting his eager successor to contribute to the effort.
The US has kept Pollard in jail for 28 years. The same US is twisting Israel’s arm to free more than 80 terrorists, and Minister Uri Ariel, understandably, cannot understand the American mind.
Minister Yuval Steinitz said his government would release a "limited number" of prisoners, some of whom have been in Israeli jails for 30 years.
