Feb 3, 2014

Kerry has warned Netanyahu that this diplomatic process is Israel’s last chance to save its Jewish and democratic character. Kerry has never once publicly warned Abbas that this process is the last Palestinian chance to gain recognized statehood.

The Second Coming of Shimon Peres

Jan 31, 2014

Leave a Comment

Shimon Peres plans to come roaring back into Israeli politics this summer (when his term as president ends), as the country’s shadow prime minister, to press Netanyahu on the Palestinian issue and to “save” Israel – as only he can. I say that President Peres should bow out gracefully.

The Impatient Israeli Political Left

Jan 28, 2014

Israel should reject Amos Yadlin’s desperate, perilous and illogical proposals for unilateral withdrawal — which only teach the Palestinians not to compromise on any issue. Unilateral Israeli withdrawals won’t bring security or peace.
