Well, as King Solomon wrote repeatedly in Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, "Nothing's new."
Speaking in the South Korean capital, Seoul, Mr Obama said that the unity deal was "unhelpful".As far as the United States is concerned, Israel's policies are equivalent to the Arab terrorist actions of Hamas. Almost a quarter of a century after the Arab terrorists murdered Rachella Druk, mother of seven young children, the United States Government still considers us no different than the terrorists.
He said the pact was "just one of a series of choices that both the Israelis and Palestinians have made that are not conducive to trying to resolve the crisis". (BBC)
But most dangerous for Israel isn't the American policy, it's the policy of the Israel Left. The Israeli Left blames Israel for the breakdown in negotiations with the Arabs for "peace."
Opposition leader MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) on Saturday night launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his coalition, blaming them for the collapse of the peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA).Also, the Leftist parties in Bibi Netanyahu's coalition, like Tsipi Livni's "Movement" and Yair Lapid's "Yesh Atid-There's a Future" are saying the same dangerous, seditious, anti-Israeli garbage.
In a post on his Facebook page, Herzog called on Netanyahu to “initiate a comprehensive and courageous offer” to PA Mahmoud Abbas. (Arutz 7)
Justice Minister and Chief Negotiator Tzipi Livni announced on Israel Channel 2 that she won’t be quitting the coalition, and the decision to temporarily suspend the negotiations – for now – because of the Fatah-Hamas reunification was correct.
But Livni added that Abbas has made some bad choices, and repeatedly said “the door isn’t closed”, and when the time is right, no matter how long it takes, negotiations will start again, she will run them, and she will try to get Abbas to make the right choices.
And even though Abbas has made the wrong choices, she will still fight to reach an arrangement and reopen the doors, and try to return to negotiations, no matter how long it takes. (Jewish Press)
Yesh Atid will leave Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s governing coalition if negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians end and there is no diplomatic process taking place, party leader Yair Lapid said in closed conversations Tuesday.To be blunt, I'd say that Bibi should be "courageous" and cite Herzog, Livni, Lapid etc for sedition. Our greatest enemies are those from among our own people. When the Jewish People and the State of Israel are on the right track for our security and sovereignty over the entire Land of Israel, then we will enjoy peace with those around us. That's the only way!
Officials in Yesh Atid confirmed a Channel 10 report that past commitments Lapid made, in which he said he would remove his party from the coalition if there were no peace talks, applied to the situation that could arise in the coming days. (Jerusalem Post)
