Obama’s trust of Netanyahu and Abbas not upset Kerry’s peace process cart is zero, so he called both leaders on Thursday just in case they forgot who is calling the shots.
As far as the half million Israelis living in Judea and Samaria—most of whom are Jewish Home voters—the referendum bill leaves them in the cold.
Family members of those murdered by Arab terrorists who may be released will continue crying out for justice to every member of the Israeli government. They hope everyone else will also.
JERUSALEM – With large parts of the Arab world engulfed in internecine violence, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators began a new round of peace talks in Washington this week aimed at nailing down a final peace agreement within the next nine months.
An unexpected hurdle for Jewish Home leader Bennett who's been pushing the referendum legislation.
American Jews support Israelis in outrage directed at latest "peace" efforts which they believe will only lead to more terrorism
The PA upgrades its dictionary. Bennett is a terrorist for saying real terrorists should be killed. All settlers are terrorists. PA murderers are not terrorists – they are “strugglers for their freedom.”
Lest anyone forget who gets the blame for the failure of the renewed peace talks or for the"credit" of any agreement to hold water, Obama put in his two cents and met with PA and Israeli negotiators Tuesday.
Abbas' Fatah party Facebook page tells the truth about terrorism and the “peace process.” It posted a picture of three notorious female terrorists, each one a ”master of the world.” Now let’s talk peace?
"In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli - civilian or soldier - on our lands."
Every US “peace process” mediator has failed. Martin Indyk is next in line. He has said Israel must cede the Temple Mount and the PA must give up the “right of return.” If he succeeds, expect war.
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.
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.
Following is the text of an open letter to the citizens of Israel from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of the proposal to resume the diplomatic process, that will be submitted to the Cabinet tomorrow (Sunday, 28 July 2013).
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.
The 104 terrorists slated to be released by Israel have blood of many men, women and children on their hands.
