The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/us-eu-russia-meet-mideast-late-january-28249488
US, UN, EU and Russia to Meet on Mideast in Late January
UNITED NATIONS — Jan 15, 2015, 2:56 PM ET

Key Mideast mediators — the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia — will meet this month to discuss the way toward Israeli-Palestinian peace as tensions escalate in the decades-old conflict.

U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power made the announcement during the U.N. Security Council's monthly Mideast debate, calling the status quo "unsustainable." She urged both sides "to exercise maximum restraint and avoid steps that threaten to push Israeli-Palestinian relations into a cycle of further escalation."

The meeting of envoys from the so-called Quartet of Mideast mediators will be Jan. 26 in Brussels, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

It follows the council's recent rejection of a Palestinian-backed resolution demanding an end to Israeli occupation within three years and the Palestinians' subsequent decision to join the International Criminal Court. Relations also remain fraught following last summer's 50-day Gaza war between Israel and the Islamic militant group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and the earlier failure of U.S.-brokered peace talks.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told the Security Council that the Quartet, at ministerial level, "should be promptly reinvigorated."

Chile's Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz, the current council president, said "a lot more" international engagement is needed including the Quartet, the Arab League and others.

The Palestinians have made clear that they oppose further direct negotiations with Israel mediated by the U.S., saying 20 years of such talks have not produced results.

"We are willing to negotiate, but now in a different way, through an international conference or a collective process," Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian U.N. ambassador, told a group of reporters last week.

The perilous state of Israeli-Palestinian relations was evident at Thursday's meeting.

Assistant Secretary-General Jens Anders Toyberg-Frandzen said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon "is alarmed that the parties are now engaged in a downward spiral of actions."

"Neither the Palestinians nor the Israelis have taken the challenging steps, or made the bold decisions, required to begin the process of reversing the ever-widening trust deficit between the two sides," he said. "Instead, we have witnessed developments which may unfortunately further reduce the likelihood of talks resuming in the future."


Toyberg-Frandzen called on Israel to immediately transfer the estimated $127 million in tax revenues collected on behalf of the Palestinian Authority for December. Israel froze the funds in response to actions that will make Palestine a member of the ICC on April 1. As a member of the court, the Palestinians will have standing to pursue war crimes charges against Israel.

The Palestinians and Israelis say they remain committed to peace and accuse each other of blocking the road to a two-state solution.

Mansour, the Palestinian ambassador, warned that the situation is "becoming more fragile and volatile by the day while a peaceful solution remains elusive due to lack of political will and the intransigence of Israel." In Jerusalem, which has seen clashes over access to holy sites, "tensions are raging as Israeli violations and crimes push the situation to a precipice," he warned.

Israel's U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor accused Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of remaining "committed to the three no's. He will not negotiate, he will not recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people and he will not make peace." He accused the Palestinian Authority of committing "every form of diplomatic treachery" last year by abandoning peace talks, forming a government with Hamas, honoring "convicted terrorists" and breaking its word by signing up to join dozens of treaties and conventions including the ICC.

11 wounded by Palestinian in Israeli bus attack in Tel Aviv
1/21/15

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — A knife-wielding Palestinian stabbed 11 morning commuters on and near a bus Wednesday, striking in the heart of Tel Aviv and reigniting fears of continued violence ahead of Israeli elections in March.

The attack was the latest in a spate of Palestinian attacks against Israelis over recent months, which has been largely reserved to Jerusalem but also has spilled over to the West Bank and Tel Aviv.

Tuesday's stabbing took place near a busy intersection during morning rush hour. Police identified the attacker as Hamza Mohammed Matrouk, 23, from the West Bank town of Tulkarem. Police said Matrouk confessed to the attack, saying this summer's Gaza war, tensions surrounding a Jerusalem site holy to Jews and Muslims and extremist Islamic videos promising him an "arrival to heaven" fueled the violence.

Gaza's ruling Hamas praised the attack, calling it "brave and heroic," but did not claim responsibility. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Palestinian incitement for the ongoing bloodshed.

Police and witnesses said Matrouk was riding on the bus when he began stabbing passengers and the driver. He fled the bus but was chased down and shot by prison service officers nearby. They shot Matrouk in the leg and arrested him.

The bus driver, Herzl Biton, was stabbed in the upper body and liver and underwent surgery, his niece Cheli Shushan said. Witnesses said Biton used pepper spray to deter the attacker and slammed on the brakes to jar him. After being stabbed, Biton flung open the doors to allow passengers to flee.

At the scene of the attack, a Jewish head covering lay beside headphones on the floor of the bus, with blood splattered nearby.

Video aired by Israeli television station Channel 10 showed Matrouk running down the street and stabbing a woman in the back as he tried to escape.

The violence comes weeks ahead of March 17 elections, in which Netanyahu, a security hawk, is facing a challenge from a joint list headed by Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni, who support negotiations with the Palestinians. The continued violence could sway votes in Netanyahu's favor.

The attack sparked heated rhetoric ahead of the polls, with Herzog blaming Netanyahu for a "strong lack of personal security" among Israelis.

"The reality is very clear. There is no sense of personal security. Not in Tel Aviv, not in Jerusalem which is divided by concrete barricades and not (in the communities) near Gaza. This is a real problem and the citizens of Israel will need to make a decision," he told Israel Radio.

The stabbing appeared to be the latest in a series of "lone-wolf" Palestinian attacks that have plagued Israel in recent months, killing about a dozen people, including five people killed with guns and meat cleavers in a bloody assault on a Jerusalem synagogue. Police have said the attacks are almost impossible to prevent.

In Jerusalem, the violence came after months of tensions between Jews and Palestinians in east Jerusalem — the section of the city the Palestinians demand as their future capital. The area saw a wave of violence last summer, capped by a 50-day war between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza.

Much of the recent unrest has stemmed from tensions surrounding a key holy site in Jerusalem's Old City. It is the holiest site for Jews, who call it the Temple Mount because of the revered Jewish Temples that stood there in biblical times. Muslims refer to it as the Noble Sanctuary, and it is their third holiest site, after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian official, condemned the violence but said it came as a result of the Israeli occupation.

"You cannot have a violent military occupation with full impunity and then expect all its victims to be calm and quiet," she said.

Netanyahu has blamed the attacks on incitement by the Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian leaders.

"The terrorist attack in Tel Aviv is the direct result of the poisonous incitement being disseminated by the Palestinian Authority against the Jews and their state," he said. "This same terrorism is trying to attack us in Paris, Brussels and everywhere."

Obama won't meet with Netanyahu during controversial U.S. visit
White House says it's too close to Israel's elections

1/22/15

President Barack Obama will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the latter's controversial March 3 visit to Washington, the White House announced Thursday, saying a meeting could be perceived as an attempt by the administration to influence Israel's March 17 elections.
"The president will not be meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu because of the proximity to the Israeli election, which is just two weeks after his planned address to the U.S. Congress," National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a emailed statement.

“As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections, so as to avoid the appearance of influencing a democratic election in a foreign country," she said.

Netanyahu's visit has further strained already difficult relations between the Israeli leader and Obama. Republican House Speaker John Boehner invited Netanyahu to address a joint meeting of Congress for the express purpose of challenging the president's approach to Islamist extremism and negotiations with Iran over that country's nuclear program. The White House, which found out about the visit from Boehner's office, accused Israel of breaching diplomatic protocol under which foreign leaders advise host leaders of pending visits.

Netanyahu has made no secret of his opposition to ongoing talks with Iran, saying that Tehran cannot be trusted to abandon its ability to build a nuclear weapon that could directly threaten Israel. His visit will come as the White House tries to tamp down a move in Congress to pass legislation that envisions new economic sanctions on Iran if no satisfactory comprehensive nuclear deal can be reached.

"The president has been clear about his opposition to Congress passing new legislation on Iran that could undermine our negotiations and divide the international community," said Meehan. "The president has had many conversations with the Prime Minister on this matter, and I am sure they will continue to be in contact on this and other important matters.”

'Abbas was once a terrorist, but he isn't now,' Livni tells JPost
1/22/15

Dividing Jerusalem is negotiable, Hatnua leader Tzipi Livni said in the inaugural episode of The Jerusalem Post's Election Arena, an online video series, Thursday.

"I hope not," was Livni's answer to whether she was for or against dividing the capital city.

When asked if that means that she thinks a divided Jerusalem is a possibility, she responded that the issue would be "part of the negotiations."

However, she added that the goal would be "to keep Jerusalem united under Israeli sovereignty."

Livni also said that while Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "was once a terrorist, he isn't anymore."

Watch Livni discuss US-Israel relations, the two-state solution, Labor-Hatnua's chances at forming the next government and more on JPost.com.

The Jerusalem Post Election Arena will feature weekly interviews with politicians on key issues ahead of the March 17 election.

PM ruining US ties for election speech, Lapid and Livni say
In separate interviews, Netanyahu’s former allies accuse him of hurting Israel’s security to gain favor with right-wing voters

Hatnua party leader Tzipi Livni and Yesh Atid party chief Yair Lapid warned in separate interviews Saturday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was wrecking Israel’s relationship with the White House for political gains.

Livni and Lapid, who were both high-ranking members of Netanyahu’s coalition until he called new elections and fired them in December, had nothing but scorn for the Likud leader in their comments Saturday. These pertained to the latest incident to deal a blow to Jerusalem’s ties with Washington: Netanyahu’s announcement that he will address Congress on March 3, a speech he did not coordinate with the White House and which is largely expected to attack the policies of President Barack Obama vis-à-vis Iran.

Senior Israeli sources told Channel 2 Friday that the prime minister was forced to defy the Obama administration because “he must present his stance” before a bad deal is signed with Tehran. But commentators and opponents have noted the proximity to the upcoming elections, to be held March 17, and have accused Netanyahu of electioneering.

“Netanyahu is destroying our strategic relationship with the US for a single election speech,” Lapid told an audience at a Saturday cultural event in Modiin.

“I spoke to senior US officials over the weekend and they are aghast at this conduct. It’s rude, it goes against all protocol,” and all in order to win him some favor in Likud circles, he said.

At a separate event in Bat Yam, Livni accused Netanyahu of self-defeating conduct that offended Israel’s strongest supporters in the international arena.

“Netanyahu’s step may serve him personally, politically, but hurts Israel’s security,” she said. “A responsible prime minister who has the state’s best interests in mind would not do this. A responsible prime minister would find a way to work with the US president – any president — to safeguard our most vital interests.”

http://www.timesofisrael.com/biden-kerry-both-set-to-skip-pms-congress-speech-meet-with-herzog/
Biden, Kerry meet with Herzog; both to skip PM in DC next month
In Munich, VP and secretary discuss security with opposition leader, who says Netanyahu will face ‘complete boycott’ by Obama administration in March

2/7/15

US Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry both met informally with Zionist Camp co-leader Isaac Herzog — head of the Labor Party and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief rival in the Israeli elections — on the sidelines of a security conference in Munich, Germany on Saturday.

Their discussions reportedly revolved around security matters and the Zionist Camp’s defense strategy.

The meetings were not formally scheduled, and no photographs were immediately issued.

Herzog also met with the EU’s Foreign Affairs Chief Federica Mogherini and German FM Frank-Walter Steinmeier on the sidelines of the conference.

The Biden-Kerry meetings with Herzog came a day after Biden’s office said the vice president would be abroad and would not attend a contentious speech on Iran Netanyahu is set to deliver to Congress on March 3. Netanyahu’s planned address has infuriated the Obama administration, which accused the Israeli leader of breaching protocol as the visit was not coordinated with the White House. Both Kerry and President Barack Obama said last month that they would not meet with Netanyahu during the visit, citing its proximity to the March 17 elections.

Speaking to Israel’s Channel 10 after his Munich talks, Herzog underlined the scope of the crisis in ties between Netanyahu and the Obama Administration. Netanyahu “won’t get to meet with a single American official on this visit — not from the National Security Agency, not from the White House, not from the State Department,” Herzog said. “It’s a complete boycott [of Netanyahu by the Obama administration]. Even if that’s not stated, that’s the story.”

As president of the Senate, Biden would typically attend the joint meeting, putting the White House in a bind because of its irritation with Netanyahu. Biden’s overseas trip allows the White House to avoid the awkwardness of having the vice president sit behind Netanyahu during the address. It’s unclear where the vice president plans to travel, though his office said the unspecified trip was in the works before the prime minister’s trip was announced.

Netanyahu has been under increased pressure to cancel the speech, in Israel and in the United States.

Herzog said earlier Saturday that the premier must cancel his trip to the US due to the antagonism his address — which was coordinated with House Majority Leader John Boehner — has caused in Washington.

“The time has come when Bibi (Netanyahu) must announce the cancellation of his visit to Congress,” Herzog said in a speech at the conference in Munich. “In conversations I’ve held with many European and US leaders, it is clear there is great anger over Netanyahu diverting the discussion on Iran’s nuclear program for political gain, and turning it into a confrontation with the president of the United States.”

“This speech that was born in sin, as an electioneering ‘production,’ endangers the security of Israel’s citizens and the special relationship between Israel and the US,” Herzog charged.

Many Democrats also object to Netanyahu’s speech, for three reasons: The invitation is an implied rebuke for Obama; the speech, scheduled two weeks before Israel’s elections, might be designed to boost Netanyahu’s re-election hopes; and Netanyahu backs new sanctions on Iran that the administration and Western powers argue could scuttle sensitive negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

Rep. G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina called Boehner’s actions unprecedented, and said Netanyahu has “politicized” his US visit.

On Friday, an Israel Channel 10 TV report said that some 40 Democratic legislators were expected to stay away from the address, and that Netanyahu was anxious to avoid that spreading to a wider “second wave” of legislators. By Saturday, it said 60 legislators might stay away.

The Friday report also said that Netanyahu has conveyed messages to the Americans to the effect that “he didn’t know” the invitation extended to him to speak before the US Congress was anything but genuinely bi-partisan.

Netanyahu remains determined to go ahead with the address, to highlight the dangers of a deal that would leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, but is making an effort “to soften” the Obama administration’s anger, and that of many Democrats, over the March 3 speech, the TV report said.

Blair: 'You could lock Israeli-PA negotiators in room for eternity and peace would not come'
2/15/15

Blair called on Hamas to clarify if they are Palestinian nationalist movement or broader Islamic one with regional designs

A new approach to Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and the Gaza Strip is needed 20 years after Oslo, Quartet envoy Tony Blair said Sunday following his first visit to Gaza in more than five years.

“The last conflict left Gaza devastated and its people worn down and impoverished,” said the former British prime minister. “The problem is not – as is often thought – locking negotiators in a room long enough to make an agreement. At present, you could lock them in such a room for eternity and peace would still not come.”

According to Blair, if the reality on the ground was conducive to peace, “negotiators could find a way through the issues of borders and land swaps, and even Jerusalem, refugees and security guarantees.”

The problem, he wrote in an article posted on his website, is that not only is the ground not ripe for peace, but rather the exact opposite is true. Gaza, he said, “is living proof” of that.

Furthermore, in the West Bank the economy is stalled and “in Jerusalem the tension is palpable and dangerous.”

Blair, who previously visited Gaza only twice in the more than seven years he has served as the Quartet envoy, went through the Erez Crossing and met with members of the Palestinian unity government, local business and community workers, and families and workers at a UN facility for “internally displaced persons.”

He was in Gaza for several hours.

After the visit he wrote that there were three preconditions to a “successful peace process.”

First, he said, there must be a “dramatic and broad improvement” in the daily lives of Palestinians.

Second, there must be “unified Palestinian politics” that “explicitly is in favor of peace and two states, meaning a sovereign State of Palestine and a secure, accepted State of Israel.”

Third, he said, there must be “an enhanced role for the region, in alliance with the international community, which must step up to share leadership of the issue.” He argued that in all the current “darkness” in the diplomatic process there is one potential ray of hope – the changing region.


“As the threat of extremism throws up new risks, it also offers new opportunities for all those who believe in peace to unite in achieving it,” he said. “So we should not give up but re-double our efforts.”

The work, he said, should begin in Gaza, which he labeled “a metaphor for all that is wrong.”

Blair added that Gaza needed to be opened up and reconnected to the world, something that will necessitate a “reconciliation in Palestinian politics. And for reconciliation to happen, we need unity to be on a basis which supports peace.”

Furthermore, he said the international community needs “clarity” from Hamas.

“Are they a Palestinian nationalist movement dedicated to the achievement of a Palestinian State or part of a broader Islamist movement with regional designs that impact governments outside of Gaza? Are they prepared to accept a Palestinian State within 1967 borders or not, with such a state being a final settlement to the conflict?” he asked.

In addition, he said Egypt had to be given “credible guarantees about its own security” in relation to Gaza; the Gaza crossings should be opened so the region can be “reunited with the outside world;” Israel should do all it can to assist in Gaza’s reconstruction; and Egypt should lead the negotiation about the long-term future of Gaza.

“This Gaza plan should be part of a wider agreement after the new government of Israel is established, which should have at its core the dramatic improvement of Palestinian life on the West Bank,” he said. “This, in turn, could pave the way for Palestinian elections and the resumption of a proper negotiation for the resolution of the peace process.”

Indyk: Get ready for UNSC resolution proposed not by Palestinians, but int'l community
2/16/15

Israel will likely face a UN Security Council resolution proposed by all its permanent members, designed to “lay out the principles of a two-state solution,” if the post-election government does not launch a diplomatic initiative, Martin Indyk said Monday.

Indyk, who was the US special envoy to last year’s failed Israeli- Palestinian talks and a former ambassador to Israel, said at the annual Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv that he expects this initiative would be “against Israel’s will.”

Indyk, currently vice president and director of the Foreign Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, has been involved in the diplomatic process since the Oslo era. After he stepped down over the summer following the collapse of the negotiations, he did little to hide his opinion that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was largely responsible for the breakdown of the talks.

“If there is a government in Israel after these elections that decides to pursue a two-state solution, then there is a way forward,” Indyk said. “It begins with coordinating an initiative with the United States. And then, together with the US, looking to Egypt and Jordan and the resurrection of the Arab Peace Initiative, to find a way to provide the Palestinians both with an Egyptian-Jordanian anchor, and the political cover of the Arab Peace Initiative.”

He said that under this arrangement there would have to be a “freeze for a freeze”: an Israeli freeze of settlement activity and a freeze of Palestinian international activity against Israel.

But if there is not an Israeli initiative or support for a twostate solution, Indyk warned, there will be “international actions” pursued not by the Palestinians, but rather by the international community “in terms of a Security Council resolution” to “lay out and preserve the principles of a twostate solution in the future.”

By saying this resolution may come from all five permanent members of the UN Security Council, he hinted that the US would be involved.

Indyk began his comments by reflecting concern in Washington that the situation on the ground is reaching a boiling point, something that has been exacerbated by Israel’s withholding the transfer of tax funds to the PA so that it is unable to pay the salaries of its civil servants, including those responsible for security coordination with Israel.

“The collapse of the Palestinian Authority” is a real danger, and Israel could soon find itself responsible for the Palestinians both in the West Bank and in Gaza, he said.

Indyk, looking back on last year’s failed negotiations, said that there are “very wide gaps” between the two parties. At the same time, he said, solutions to bridge the gaps on all the main core issues could be found, “but the political conditions for both sides don’t exist at the moment.”

He said that not only is there a fundamental lack of trust between the leaders, “but also the lack of trust between the peoples,” with both sides believing there is no partner on the other side.

“As long as that is the case, it is very difficult to create a situation in which the political leadership feels the people at their back insisting they make a deal,” Indyk said. And this fundamental lack of trust between leaders and people is something “that will be extremely difficult to overcome,” he added.

Prior to Indyk, Brig.-Gen.

(res.) Moshe Tamir presented the principles of a plan for a limited unilateral Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, an idea that has been promoted for some time by the INSS under its previous director, Amos Yadlin, who stepped down recently when he took the plunge into politics.

Yadlin is now the Zionist Union’s candidate for defense minister.

An INSS workgroup – that in addition to Tamir also included INSS acting director Udi Dekel and security expert Brig.-Gen.

(res) Baruch Spiegel – suggested a limited Israeli unilateral withdrawal that would not compromise Israel’s security is only possible if the Jordan Valley and the settlements there remain in Israeli hands, and if the IDF retains freedom of action throughout Judea and Samaria.

Tamir said that if the withdrawal from Gaza were based on the premise of deterrence – that Hamas would not act if it knew that if it did so it would be hit sevenfold by Israel – then a different paradigm would have to be used to enable a withdrawal from even parts of the West Bank.

“In Judea and Samaria we are looking at a different way altogether.

It has to be complete prevention of militarization and arming,” he said. According to Tamir, withdrawal from parts of the West Bank could work only if it would be impossible for the Palestinians to arm themselves inside areas left by the IDF. And for that purpose, it would be necessary to hold onto the Jordan Valley and allow freedom of IDF action.

Another speaker on the panel was Tamar Asraf, spokeswoman for the Binyamin Regional Council, who said that the proposal for a limited unilateral withdrawal from the West Bank would necessitate the evacuation of some 100,000 settlers, something that would create a rift in the country that would be more dangerous to its future than the external threats.

Arab League to Discuss Creation of 'Unified Arab Force'

Annual summit to consider implementing Egyptian initiative for joint force to confront stability threats such as 'the rise of terrorism.'

3/3/15

The Arab League will consider setting up a defense unit to battle the spread of the Islamic State (ISIS) group at its annual summit later this month, an official said Tuesday.

Deputy chief Ahmed Ben Helli told reporters that the March 28-29 meeting in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh will discuss an Egyptian initiative to create a "unified Arab force," reports AFP.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has called for such a unit to confront security threats in the region where ISIS holds swathes of Syria and Iraq and has gained a foothold in Egypt's neighbor Libya.

Last month Sisi ordered air strikes in Libya after ISIS jihadists there beheaded 21 mostly Egyptian Christians.

Ben Helli said a united Arab force was needed, even as a "symbolic" show of deterrence at times of "conflict or disasters."

"Such forces should be ready and present so that they could symbolically show that the Arab countries have a deterrent force and a peacekeeping force that could step in at times of conflicts," he said.

Ben Helli added that such a unit would be tasked with "confronting threats that undermine the stability of the countries of the region, particularly the rise of terrorism."


In an interview Saturday with the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya news channel, Sisi said that a joint Arab force could get support from Arab League members Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.

He said he discussed the creation of such a unified force with Jordan's King Abdullah II who welcomed the idea and said Arabs should press ahead to set up such a unit.

New document said to reveal PM’s concessions to Palestinians
Paper allegedly drafted in secret talks pre-2013 acknowledges 1967 borders, accepts Jerusalem needs solving, details Israeli withdrawal; PMO denies any deals reached


A document drafted by Israeli officials in recent years, which details the framework for peace negotiations with Palestinians, appears to indicate a willingness for significant compromises by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yedioth Ahronoth revealed Friday.

According to the document, Netanyahu agreed to negotiate a peace deal on the basis of the 1967 borders, with land swaps; to acknowledge Palestinian aspirations in East Jerusalem; to evacuate settlers from the West Bank; and to allow those who so choose to remain under Palestinian rule.

The paper, according to Yedioth, was the result of secret talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that took place during Netanyahu’s previous term as premier between 2009-2013. Those negotiations — between Netanyahu’s emissary Yitzhak Molcho and PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s confidant Hussein Agha — attempted to draw up the framework for more comprehensive peace talks.

“The sides agree that Palestine will be an independent and sovereign state in a sustainable territory which will correspond to the size of the territory controlled by Egypt and Jordan before the 4th of June 1967,” the script states.

“The agreement for the establishment of Palestine will resolve all final-status issues, including the issue of settlements. Israelis who choose to remain in their homes in the state of Palestine will live under Palestinian law,” it continues. “There will be a complete withdrawal in stages of Israeli forces from the territory of Palestine. The last Israeli forces will evacuate when the final stage of the agreement comes into effect.”

The document does not accept East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine — nor would it, before negotiations had even begun — but it does state that “any solution must take into account the historical, social, cultural and emotional connections of the two peoples to the city, as well as protect the holy sites.”

Yedioth also reported that the document “opened the way” for a limited Palestinian “right of return” on an individual basis, though no direct quotes were immediately available. The “right of return” refers to the rights of descendants of former Arab residents of today’s Israel to return to their homes.

Asked to respond by the newspaper, the Prime Minister’s Office stated: “At no point did Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agree to a return to the 1967 borders, to the partition of Jerusalem, or to the right of return. That has been — and remains — his position.

“The conversations of Yitzhak Molcho were conducted with American involvement and did not lead to any agreements. They dealt with an American attempt to restart negotiations, with each side reserving the right to oppose certain clauses.

“Throughout the years, many drafts have been tabled without an agreement being reached on any of them, and even if such an American draft resolution was being considered, the prime minister made it clear in advance that he would oppose the clauses that do not adhere to his positions.”

Following the release of the Yedioth story, Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett called on right-wingers to vote for him in the March 17 election, vowing that he would “not give away a centimeter of the Land of Israel.”

Bennett wrote on his Facebook page: “We are on the way to the establishment of a Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem. We can stop this. The party needs lots of votes to prevent this.”

Netanyahu and center-left opposition tied in exit polls: TV

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Exit polls by Israel's leading television channels showed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party drew even with Isaac Herzog's Zionist Union in the election on Tuesday, making the formation of the next government a serious challenge for both candidates.

Channel 10 and Channel 1 said Likud and the Zionist Union had secured 27 seats each in the 120-member Knesset, while Channel 2 said that Netanyahu had eked out a narrow victory, winning 28 seats to 27 for Herzog.

Final results are not expected until early on Wednesday morning.

Netanyahu, on Twitter, says won 'great victory' in Israel's election
3/17/15

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on Twitter, claimed a "great victory" in Israel's election on Tuesday, after exit polls showed his right-wing Likud party even with its main opponent, the center-left Zionist Union.

"Against all odds: a great victory for Likud, a great victory for the national camp led by Likud, a great victory for the people of Israel," Netanyahu wrote on his official Twitter account.

Likud Leads with 30 Seats After 99% of Ballots Counted

Binyamin Netanyahu appears to be headed towards a greater victory than predicted by exit polls, with 30 seats. "Zionist Camp" has 24.

3/18/15

As counting of votes continues in the elections for the 20th Knesset, the Likud party may be headed for an even bigger victory than exit polls originally predicted.

As of 4:25 a.m. (Israel time), 99.5% of the ballots have been counted and the Likud is leading the pact with 30 seats. The “Zionist Union” of Labor and Hatnua has 24 seats.

The Joint Arab List has 13 seats, followed by Yesh Atid with 11 seats and Moshe Kahlon’s Kulanu with ten.

The Jewish Home has eight seats, the haredi parties Shas and United Torah Judaism each have seven seats, Yisrael Beytenu has six and Meretz closes out the list with four seats.

Despite earlier indications that it may have passed the threshold, it appears as though Eli Yishai’s Yachad party will be left out of the Knesset.

Netanyahu addressed supporters of the Likud earlier Tuesday night, saying the results were a “great victory” for the nationalist camp in Israel.

“Against all odds, we have achieved a great victory for the Likud. We have achieved a great victory for the Likud-led nationalist camp and our people,” he said.

"I am proud of the people of Israel who, at the moment of truth, knew how to separate between the important and the secondary issues and focus on the important ones,” said Netanyahu, who mentioned issues such as “real security, a responsible economy, as well as social welfare. These are the things that are important to each family. Every father and mother, every young couple , every soldier, every citizen. And all Israeli citizens, Jews and non-Jews alike. All of you are important, and all of you are important to me.”

Obama may agree to UN resolution on '67 borders after Netanyahu campaign rhetoric

Obama administration signals patience with Netanyahu running out.

In the wake of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's resounding victory in Tuesday's election, the White House has expressed severe concern regarding the Likud leader's campaign rhetoric and noted turnaround against the establishment of a Palestinian state.

According to several administration officials, the Obama administration is now seriously considering agreeing to the passage of a United Nations Security Council resolution "embodying the principles of a two-state solution that would include Israel’s 1967 borders with Palestine and mutually agreed swaps of territory," according to The New York Times.

Although the relationship between Israel and the United States would remain strong, according to administration officials, it would not be managed by US President Barack Obama and Netanyahu. Instead, US Secretary of State John Kerry, one of Netanyahu's only remaining friends in the president's administration, would take over along with Pentagon officials who handle the close military alliance with Israel.

“The president is a pretty pragmatic person and if he felt it would be useful, he will certainly engage,” the Times quoted a senior administration official as saying. “But he’s not going to waste his time,” he added.

“The premise of our position internationally has been to support direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” a senior White House official said. “We are now in a reality where the Israeli government no longer supports direct negotiations. Therefore we clearly have to factor that into our decisions going forward.”

Netanyahu faces pressure over Palestinian state after win
3/19/15

Jerusalem (AFP) - Benjamin Netanyahu weighed up options Thursday for a new Israeli rightwing coalition as Western governments cranked up the pressure on the premier for ruling out a Palestinian state during his campaign.

Both the European Union and the United States gave a cool reception to Netanyahu's upset victory in Tuesday's election.

They expressed concern that his lurch to the right during the hard-fought campaign could prove an insurmountable obstacle to any resumption of peace talks.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict would be impossible with a new government led by Netanyahu.

In a last-ditch appeal to Israel's far right just hours before polls opened, Netanyahu ruled out the establishment of a Palestinian state and pledged to build thousands of new homes for Jewish settlers in annexed Arab east Jerusalem.

While it may have secured him a third consecutive term, it has left him deeply isolated internationally and has done further damage to his already frosty relations with US President Barack Obama.

Washington brokered nine months of negotiations between Netanyahu's last government and the Palestinians that were predicated on a two-state solution, accusing the Israeli leader of helping bring about their collapse.

The White House said it continued to see a two-state solution as "the best way" to resolve the conflict and warned it was reviewing its policy on the diplomatic stalemate between Israel and the Palestinians.

"Based on Prime Minister Netanyahu's comments, the United States will reevaluate our position and the path forward in the situation," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, without elaborating further.

The statement came as speculation swirled about whether the Obama administration might cease using the US veto at the UN Security Council to shield Israel from the Palestinians' efforts for statehood.

Speaking anonymously to the New York Times, several unnamed officials said the Obama administration might agree to a UN Security Council resolution enshrining a two-state solution in a move which would be anathema to Netanyahu.


"The premise of our position internationally has been to support direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians," a senior White House official said.

"We are now in a reality where the Israeli government no longer supports direct negotiations. Therefore we clearly have to factor that into our decisions going forward."

Natan Sachs, a fellow in Middle East policy at the Brookings Institution, told AFP it was likely Netanyahu would try and retreat from his remarks, although it "will not be an easy task."

"Netanyahu's comments don't help his credibility, as he seems to be contradicting his own policy from last year when he was negotiating a two-state solution," he said.

- 'Bold leadership required' -

The Palestinian leader said that it was clear from Netanyahu's campaign pledges that there was no prospect of a negotiated settlement with him as prime minister.

"Netanyahu's statements against a two-state solution and against a Palestinian state... are proof, if correct, that there is no seriousness in the (future) Israeli government about a political solution," Abbas said.

The Palestinians would continue to push for legitimacy on the international stage, Abbas said, referring to their attempts to achieve statehood through the United Nations and other international bodies.

"It is our right to go to anywhere in the world to achieve international legitimacy," he said.

The Palestinians will formally join the International Criminal Court on April 1 and have vowed to seek action from the very first day for alleged Israeli war crimes during last year's conflict in the Gaza Strip.

EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini telephoned Netanyahu to impress upon him the need to "relaunch" peace negotiations "based on a two-state solution".

"More than ever, bold leadership is required from all to reach a comprehensive, stable and viable settlement," she said in a statement.

Netanyahu's centre-left challenger Isaac Herzog had campaigned on pledge to relaunch peace negotiations with the Palestinians and mend ties with Washington.

Conceding defeat, he quickly ruled out any participation in a unity government with Netanyahu, saying going into opposition was "the only realistic option."


Results released by the Central Elections Committee on Thursday confirmed Likud had taken 30 of the 120 seats in parliament to 24 for the Zionist Union.

Rightwing and religious parties -- including the centre-right Kulanu -- took 67 seats to 53 for the centre-left and Arab parties.

The Joint Arab List made a strong showing, becoming the third-largest faction in parliament.

Thursday's results gave them 13 seats, one fewer than previously announced, however.

The extra seat was taken by the leftwing Meretz party, giving it a total of five.

Israeli leader backtracks from Palestinian state opposition

JERUSALEM (AP) — Days after winning Israel's election, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to be backtracking from hard-line statements that ruled out the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu says in a TV interview Thursday that he remains committed to Palestinian statehood — if conditions in the region improve. He tells MSNBC: "I haven't changed my policy."

During the final days of the campaign, Netanyahu said that he would not agree to establish a Palestinian state in the current climate — a position that drew heavy criticism from Washington. The two-state solution is a key U.S. foreign policy objective.

Netanyahu said he believes Israel cannot yield captured land to the Palestinians because it will be taken over by Islamic extremists, but said he would support Palestinian independence if circumstances change.

Palestinians confirm U.S. 'studying' abandoning Israel at U.N.
Charge Netanyahu 'spat on face of American policy'


A spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party told WND his information confirms a report Thursday that the Obama administration is studying the possibility of supporting a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for the resumption of talks to create a Palestinian state.

Dmitry Diliani, who is also a member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, stated, “Now the United States, at the same time, yes, it has been studying its position.

“Especially at a time when Benjamin Netanyahu basically not only slapped the face of American policy by a statement rejecting a two-state solution,” he said. “He spat on the face of the American policy. Something that I don’t think any American would allow this to happen to the greatest country in the world.”

Diliani further confirmed reports that in light of the re-election of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Abbas may turn to the U.N. and other international bodies for recognition without the approval of Israel.

“This is something that is a total right for an independent state of Palestine that is recognized by the United Nations,” he said.

Diliani commented on Netanyahu’s election promise to reject the formation of a Palestinian state during his tenure in office.

Stated Diliani: “That means he basically canceled all the agreements. All the political planning in the region. Everything that is considered a political map for the whole region that was adapted by the whole world and former governments of Israel and the Palestinian people.”

Narrated by Leonard Nimoy, “The Miracle of Israel” documentary tells the miraculous story of Israel’s restoration and why it may hold the key to our future. Already seen by more than 1 million people, it’s available now at the WND Superstore

On the eve of this week’s elections, Netanyahu stated in a video interview with Israel’s NRG news website: “I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands is giving attack grounds to the radical Islam against the state of Israel.”

He said anyone “who ignores this is sticking his head in the sand.”

“The left does this time and time again,” Netanyahu said. “We are realistic and understand.”

The interviewer asked Netanyahu specifically whether he meant that a Palestinian state would not be established if he were re-elected.

“Correct,” he replied.

On Thursday, Foreign Policy magazine quoted Western diplomats stating the Obama administration is “edging closer” to abandoning years of blocking U.N. Security Council resolutions imposing so-called peace talks.

The magazine reported the U.S. administration may back a resolution calling for the resumption of talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state, according to the unnamed Western diplomats.

The magazine indicated the Obama administration’s willingness to accept a U.N. resolution depends on the politics of Netanyahu’s soon-to-be formed coalition.

What do YOU think? Is Obama an anti-Semite? Sound off in today’s WND poll!

If the new governing coalition consists of right-wing parties instead of a unity deal with the left, the likelihood of the U.S. supporting U.N. action would increase, the magazine indicated.

Reported Foreign Policy:

    U.S. officials signaled a willingness to consider a U.N. resolution in the event that Netanyahu was re-elected and formed a coalition government opposed to peace talks. The United States has not yet circulated a draft, but diplomats say Washington has set some red lines and is unwilling to agree to set a fixed deadline for political talks to conclude.

“The more the new government veers to the right the more likely you will see something in New York,” the magazine quoted a Western diplomat as saying.

Putin to Arab League: Palestinians have right to state with capital in east Jerusalem

UN says Israel, not Iran, North Korea or Syria worst violator of human rights

What country deserves more condemnation for violating human rights than any other nation on earth? According to the U.N.’s top human rights body, that would be Israel.

Last week, Israel was the U.N.’s number one women’s rights violator. This week it is the U.N.’s all-round human rights villain.

The U.N. Human Rights Council wrapped up its latest session in Geneva on Friday, March 27 by adopting four resolutions condemning Israel.  That’s four times more than any of the other 192 UN member states.

    Playing at caring about human rights is the U.N. game. And no state does it better than Iran.

There were four resolutions on Israel. And one on North Korea -- a country that is home to government policies of torture, starvation, enslavement, ****, disappearances, and murder – to name just some of its crimes against humanity.

Four resolutions on Israel. And one on Syria. Where the death toll of four years of war is 100,000 civilians, ten million people are displaced, and barrel bombs containing chemical agents like chlorine gas are back in action.

Four resolutions on Israel. And one on Iran. Where there is no rule of law, no free elections, no freedom of speech, corruption is endemic, protestors are jailed and tortured, religious minorities are persecuted, and pedophilia is state-run.  At last count, in 2012 Iranian courts ordered more than 30,000 girls ages 14 and under to be “married.”

And what did that one resolution on Iran say? Co-sponsored by the United States, it was labelled a “short procedural text,” consisting of just three operative paragraphs that contained not a single condemnation of Iran.

The Israel resolutions, on the other hand, were full of “demands,” “condemns,” “expresses grave concern,” and “deplores” – along with orders to “cease immediately” a long list of alleged human rights violations.

Ninety percent of states – inhabited by 6.6 billion people – got no mention at all. Countries like China, Qatar, Russia, and Saudi Arabia.  For the UN, there was not one human rights violation worthy of mention by any of these human rights horror shows.

Why not? For starters, China, Qatar, Russia and Saudi Arabia are all members of the UN Human Rights Council. Actually protecting human rights is not a condition of being elected to the Council, and thereby transforming into a UN authority on what counts as a human rights violation.

As a result, what counts fast becomes unrecognizable. Subverting human rights principles for all turns out to be the other side of the coin from subverting human rights for Jews.

Thus at this session, “death to America” Iran sponsored a Council resolution called “Enhancement of international cooperation in the field of human rights.” It was adopted by consensus – with U.S. blessing. 

The Cubans successfully engineered a Council resolution on protecting “cultural rights” – minus free expression.

The Palestinians – whose unity government includes the terrorist group Hamas – co-sponsored the resolution “effects of terrorism on the enjoyment of human rights.” 

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation – representing states where converting to Christianity is subject to the death penalty – sponsored a resolution called “combating intolerance of persons based on religion or belief.”

Playing at caring about human rights is the U.N. game. And no state does it better than Iran.

Iran’s human rights record happened to come up at the March session in the context of what the Council calls a “universal periodic review” (UPR). Touted as its leading human rights innovation, the same process is applied to every state every four years. 

That means Iran and Syria get treated the same way as, say, the United States and Canada.  At the end of the UPR, a report is summarily adopted containing a bunch of recommendations that the former cast of characters summarily dismiss. 

It was suggested to Iran, for instance, that it stop peddling little girls as sex slaves for old men. The recommendation received this reply:  “in light of Islamic teachings, a person that has reached the age of maturity and is of sound mind has the possibility of marrying.”

The Council created a human rights investigator on Iran, but Iran has never let him into the country.  Recommendations made to Iran during the UPR that it cooperate, were simply ignored. 

On March 19, 2014, the U.S. representative mustered all her courage and countered with this: “we note with disappointment that Iran has not addressed the issue of allowing the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran to visit the country…”

There is an alternative conclusion. We note with disappointment that the United States legitimizes this travesty and empowers the real enemies of human rights.

Palestinians want UN timetable to 'end Israeli occupation'

Palestinian Ambassador Mansour says adopting resolution with timetable would help 'combat extremism in region' as extremists are 'fueled by injustice of Palestinians'.

The Palestinians are "ready and willing" to see if the UN Security Council has "the political will" to adopt a resolution with a deadline for ending Israel's occupation and establishing a Palestinian state, the Palestinian UN ambassador said Monday.

 Ambassador Riyad Mansour told reporters that adoption of a resolution with a timetable would be "one of the most effective measures to combat extremism in our region, because extremists receive their fuel from the injustice of the Palestinian people."

"If there is a just solution to this conflict ... in a short period of time, then you'll take away from them the main source of recruitment and mobilization," he said, adding that it would also contribute to resolving perhaps 70 percent of the "burning issues in the Middle East."

 Mansour said the United States holds the key.

 US President Barack Obama has said he will reassess US policy toward Israel following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's comment before last month's election that he would not allow the establishment of a Palestinian state on his watch. That could be a possible sign that Washington would no longer shield Israel in the Security Council.

Last year, the council rejected a Palestinian resolution demanding an end to the Israeli occupation within three years. The US opposed that draft, saying Palestinian statehood can only be achieved through negotiations, but it didn't have to use its veto because the resolution didn't get the minimum nine votes needed for approval.

France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said late last month that his government would propose a council resolution in the coming weeks with a framework for negotiations toward resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A day earlier, the UN's outgoing top Mideast envoy, Robert Serry, challenged the Security Council to lead the way on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying it should present a framework for talks that "may be the only way to preserve the goal of a two-state solution."

Mansour said the Palestinians want a new resolution with a timetable and the parameters for a Palestinian statehood deal that would define the pre-1967 frontier as a reference point for border talks, designate Jerusalem as a capital of two states, and call for a fair solution for Palestinian refugees.

The Palestinians also want an international conference, and negotiations to include the parties as well as the five veto-wielding members of the Security Council – the US, Russia, China, Britain and France – and "concerned" Arab parties, he said.

Mansour stressed that there must be the "political will" not only to adopt a resolution but to ensure that it is implemented, which is the only way to end Israel's occupation and save the two-state solution.

That, he said, "should be our answer to the new-old position of Prime Minister Netanyahu who is against a two-state solution."

10 Quotes That Reveal Barack Obama’s Obsession With A Palestinian State

Barack Obama is absolutely obsessed with getting the Jewish people and the Palestinians to agree to a peace deal which will permanently divide the land of Israel between those two peoples.  Barack Obama insists that such an agreement will bring permanent peace to the region, even though no previous agreement between the Jewish people and the Palestinians has lasted very long at all.  We are just told to believe that the creation of a Palestinian state will somehow cause terror groups such as Hamas to totally forsake their goal of obliterating the Jewish state and pushing all Jewish people living there into the Mediterranean Sea.  For Obama, this has become personal.  He wants to cement his legacy as a great “peacemaker” by being the president that succeeded where all presidents before him have failed.  He wants to be the one that delivers the West Bank and Gaza into the hands of the Palestinians, and he has about 20 months left to do it.  The recent election victory of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a blow to those plans, but Obama is not about to give up.  In fact, Obama administration officials are now hinting that they may back a plan for a declaration of a Palestinian state at the United Nations – thus bypassing negotiations with Israel completely.  Whether by hook or by crook, Obama seems absolutely determined to make the Palestinian dream a reality.  The following are 10 quotes that reveal Barack Obama’s obsession with a Palestinian state…

#1 “Negotiations will be necessary, but there’s little secret about where they must lead: two states for two peoples”

#2 “And I think everybody understands the outlines of what a peace deal would look like, involving a territorial compromise on both sides based on ‘67 lines with mutually agreed upon swaps, that would ensure that Israel was secure but would also ensure that the Palestinians have a sovereign state in which they can achieve the aspirations that they’ve held for so long.”

#3 “The only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine”

#4 “Neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land.”

#5 “Let me be clear: The United States strongly supports the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. That is a goal shared by Palestinians, Israelis, and people of goodwill around the world. That is a goal that the parties agreed to in the road map and at Annapolis. That is a goal that I will actively pursue as President of the United States.”

#6 “…we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic”

#7 “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.”

#8 “None of us are under any illusion that this would be easy.  As I said in my speech this morning, it has already entailed significant political risk by President Abbas, as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu.  But I think the reason that they’ve been willing to take those risks is they realize this is the best way, the only way, for us to achieve what should be our goal:  two states living side-by-side in peace and security.  It’s right for Palestinian children.  It’s right for Israeli children.”

#9 “Just as the Israeli people have the right to live in the historic homeland of the Jewish people, the Palestinian people deserve the right to self-determination. Palestinian children have hopes and dreams for their future and deserve to live with the dignity that can only come with a state of their own.”

#10 “The only solution is a democratic, Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent Palestinian state. ”

The rest of Obama’s minions seem almost equally as determined to see a Palestinian state established.

For example, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough recently called Israel’s presence in the West Bank “an occupation”…

    “The United States will never stop working for a two-state solution and a lasting peace that Israelis and Palestinians so richly deserve,” he said.

    McDonough then described the alternate to a two-state agreement: a one-state solution based on unilateral annexation and abandonment of democratic rights for Palestinians that, he warned, “would only contribute to Israel’s further isolation.” In other words, he said, more divestment, boycotts and efforts to delegitimize Israel in the international community.

    “An occupation that has lasted more than 50 years must end,” McDonough said, one of several times he brought the crowd to its feet.

And State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki says that the Obama administration is “not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action” on a Palestinian state.  This represents a massive shift in policy from previous administrations.  The following comes from the Los Angeles Times…

    The U.S. would “reevaluate our approach” based on Netanyahu’s “change in his position,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters as the president flew to Cleveland to deliver a speech on economic policy.

    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki raised the possibility that the reevaluation could include a shift in position at the U.N. She avoided the usual U.S. language about vetoing Security Council resolutions that Israel opposes.

    “The prime minister’s recent statements call into question his commitment to a two-state solution,” Psaki told reporters. “We’re not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action.”

But in order for there to be a permanent peace, you have got to have two sides that want a permanent peace.

Unfortunately, that simply is not the case.

The following are the results of some surveys that have been taken of the Palestinian people in recent years…

-Only 34 percent of Palestinians believe that a “two state solution” is the answer to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

-58 percent of Palestinians prefer “armed struggle” over “engagement with Israel”.

-73 percent of Palestinians agree with the hadith quoted in the Hamas Charter that talks about killing Jews.

-62 percent of Palestinians support kidnapping Israeli soldiers and holding them hostage.

-Only 12 percent of Palestinians agree that official maps, documents and school textbooks should show the name “Israel”.

-Two-thirds of Palestinians believe that the eventual goal of the Palestinians must be “to get back all the land for a Palestinian state”.

If a Palestinian state is considered to be just an intermediate step to the liberation of all of “Palestine”, what kind of “permanent peace” is that?

Right now, the Palestinians are a divided people.  The Gaza strip is governed by Hamas, which is a terror organization devoted to the utter destruction of the nation of Israel.  The following are a few quotes from the Hamas Charter…

-“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

-“The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Holy Possession] consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgment Day. No one can renounce it or any part, or abandon it or any part of it.”

-“The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews [and kill them]; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”

Remember, the people of the Gaza strip willingly chose Hamas to govern them.

How in the world are the Jewish people supposed to believe that lasting peace is possible with an organization that is absolutely obsessed with their destruction?

It simply does not make any sense.

Before I wrap up this article, I want to share a photo with you.  It is a photo of Malik Obama (Barack Obama’s brother), and he is wearing a Hamas scarf.  On one side of the scarf is written a well-known Palestinian slogan: “Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING!”  On the other side of the scarf there is a map of “Palestine” along with the following slogan: “From the River to the Sea!”  Remember, this photograph that you are looking at is of Barack Obama’s own brother…

Malik Obama

Does Barack Obama secretly share his brother’s beliefs?

Ultimately, I believe that we will eventually see the establishment of a Palestinian state.

But the “peace” that is achieved will be very short-lived.

Here is how the liberal anti Israel anti Jesus media slowly spins news stories to a liberal view.

Palestinian police deploy near Jerusalem for first time

Ramallah (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - Palestinian police have for the first time been deployed in three areas of the West Bank near annexed east Jerusalem, Palestinian and Israeli sources said on Thursday.

"For the first time, members of the Palestinian police wearing uniform and carrying weapons have been deployed in Abu Dis, Al-Ram and Bido," Palestinian police spokesman Louay Erzikat told AFP, saying the deployment had begun on Wednesday.

"This deployment is intended to target criminals and is the result of coordination" with the Israeli authorities, he said.

The Israeli army confirmed that Major General Roni Numa, head of the military's Central Command, had agreed to let the Palestinians open police stations in all three areas.

"The purpose of these stations is to address criminal matters as well as to maintain public order for the Palestinian population in area B surrounding Jerusalem," a spokeswoman said.

Under Oslo II, the second phase of the 1993 Oslo peace accords, the West Bank was divided up into areas of civilian and security control, known as areas A, B and C.

Area A, which covers the eight major towns and cities in the West Bank, is under full Palestinian civil and security control, while Area B, which accounts for roughly 22 percent of the West Bank, is under Palestinian civil control but Israeli security control.

Area C, which covers more than 60 percent of the occupied West Bank, is where the vast majority of Israeli settlements are located and is under full Israeli control, both civilian and security.

Israel responsible for Gaza shelter attacks - UN report

Did you expect anything else?

At least 44 Palestinians were killed by "Israeli actions" while sheltering at seven UN schools during last summer's war in Gaza, a UN inquiry has found.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he deplored the deaths and stressed that UN facilities were "inviolable".

The inquiry also found that three empty UN schools were used by Palestinian militants to store weapons, and that in two cases they likely fired from them.

The 50-day conflict claimed the lives of more than 2,260 people.

At least 2,189 were Palestinians, including more than 1,486 civilians, according to the UN. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers were killed along with six civilians.
'Utmost gravity'

In November, Mr Ban announced that an independent board of inquiry would look into 10 incidents at schools run by the UN agency for Palestine refugees, Unrwa, between 8 July and 26 August 2014.

Both Israel and Hamas, the militant group that dominates Gaza, said they would co-operate with the probe headed by the retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert.

Although the board of inquiry's full 207-page report will remain private, the UN released a summary of its findings on Monday.

In one incident, a girls' school was hit by 88 mortar rounds fired by the Israeli military, the summary said. Another girls' school was struck by an anti-tank projectile, while a third was hit by a missile.

At a fourth girls' school, the inquiry found, "no prior warning had been given by the government of Israel of the firing of 155mm high explosive projectiles on, or in the surrounding area of the school".

"It is a matter of the utmost gravity that those who looked to them for protection and who sought and were granted shelter there had their hopes and trust denied," Mr Ban wrote in a cover letter accompanying the summary.

He also expressed dismay that Palestinian militant groups would put UN schools at risk by using them to hide arms.

Yah because normally they are only handing out flowers to people

The report found that weapons were stored at three schools, although they were not being used as shelters at the time. The inquiry found that Palestinian militants had probably fired from two schools, which Mr Ban said was "unacceptable".

"United Nations premises are inviolable and should be places of safety, particularly in a situation of armed conflict," he warned. "I will work with all concerned and spare no effort to ensure that such incidents will never be repeated."

A spokesman for the Israeli foreign ministry, Emmanuel Nahshon, said in response: "All of the incidents attributed by the report to Israel have already been subject to thorough examinations, and criminal investigations have been launched where relevant."

"Israel makes every effort to avoid harm to sensitive sites, in the face of terrorist groups who are committed not only to targeting Israeli civilians but also to using Palestinian civilians and UN facilities as shields for their terrorist activities."

There was no immediate comment from Hamas or the Palestinian Authority.

Israelis who hate Israel—and the Christians who fund them

While most Israelis celebrated 67 years of independence last week, a fringe Israeli non-governmental organization (NGO) hopes this year will be the last for the Jewish state. Zochrot, a tiny radical anti-Zionist group, was established with the aim of “rais[ing] public awareness of the Palestinian Nakba (“Catastrophe” in Arabic)” and “recognizing and materializing the right of return,” an agenda equivalent to calling for the abolishment of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. With no local support base or constituency, Zochrot operates only through generous funding from a coterie of foreign Christian aid organizations.

Using church funds, Zochrot promotes a “de-Zionized Palestine,” meaning free of Jews. The group’s founder, Eitan Bronstein, advocates for Jews to abandon Israel en masse. He dreams of a time “when the refugees return, Jews will become a minority in the country… There may be Jews, most of them of European origin, who won’t be able to adjust to a non-Zionist reality, and prefer to use their other passport to move elsewhere.”

Last month, together with Palestinian NGO BADIL, Zochrot embarked on a speaking tour across the U.S. to promote the “historical overview of the Nakba and the Right of Return.” Several years ago, BADIL awarded a prize to a blatantly antisemitic cartoon, featuring a grotesque caricature of a Jewish man standing over a dead Arab child and holding a pitchfork in the shape of a menorah dripping with blood. BADIL’s anti-Semitic history apparently does not concern Zochrot or its funders.

Last year, Zochrot commemorated Israel Independence Day by launching a smartphone app called “iNakba” to delegitimize the Jewish state. The app, an interactive map and photos of Palestinian Arab villages from pre-1948, was featured by The New York Times, proving the real influence of a small fringe group armed with millions of shekels of foreign funds. A year before, in 2013, Zochrot hosted a costly Tel Aviv conference titled “From Truth to Redress: Realizing the Return of Palestinian Refugees.”

These activities would ordinarily be out of reach for a group its size. But, due to the largesse of nine European Christian aid agencies, Zochrot does not lack resources. Foreign funding for 2014 and first quarter of 2015 totals NIS 2,892,665 (about $740,000). Of that, some NIS 2,726,917—about 93 percent—comes from the Christian charities.

These charities, both Catholic and Protestant, receive funding grants from their respective governments, mostly European. The charities are Bischoefliches Misereor (Germany), Broederlijk Delen (Belgium), Christian Aid (U.K.), Finn Church Aid (Finland), HEKS-EPER (Switzerland), ICCO (Netherlands), Trócaire (Ireland), the Mennonite Central Committee (Canada), and the United Church of Canada (Canada).

That these Christian groups support the abolishment of Jewish Israel is deeply troubling. The modern Zionist movement emerged in response to 19th-century anti-Semitic pogroms often caused by the anti-Jewish incitement of Christian clergy. Israel was subsequently established in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust, the road to which was pave by centuries of anti-Semitic Christian teachings.

Following the Holocaust, a number of the world’s leading Christian theologians began a comprehensive reconsideration of Christianity’s attitudes toward Jews and Judaism. They undertook a process of renouncing and reformulating centuries of Christian teachings that led to anti-Jewish violence over the centuries. 

Yet in the last two decades, some churches have partnered with anti-Israel activists to reverse these theological reforms, by introducing a “Palestinian liberation theology”—a fusion of Palestinian nationalism and Christian theology. This ideology seeks to undermine Jewish claims, religious or historical, to sovereignty in any and all parts of the Land of Israel.

Zochrot serves as perfect window dressing for this theological onslaught on the right of the Jewish people to sovereign equality. Without its Christian backers, Zochrot and its pernicious agenda would cease to exist.

Yitzhak Santis is chief programs officer of NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based research institute.
