    israel Beytenu chairperson Avigdor Liberman's imminent entry to the coalition government has been evoking numerous responses in Israel, but the Palestinian Authority (PA) also saw fit to comment on the developments Thursday morning. ..... That initiative is based on the 2002 Saudi initiative, by which Israel would make massive concessions in return for paper agreements from its Arab neighbors not to attack - Israel has flatly rejected the French push. According to the PA, Yisrael Beytenu's entry "sends a strong message to the world that Israel prefers radicalism..." .....

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday that he still sees Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a partner for peace. Speaking to journalist Ilana Dayan on Channel 2’s “Uvda” program, Abbas also claimed that the PA’s security forces fight terrorism and go as far as to search backpacks of Palestinian children for knives that can be used for stabbing attacks. “I would have to be crazy to tell my son that [carrying a knife] is the right thing. Or that these knife attacks are the right thing to do,” he said, adding, “You know, we, our security services, go...

    n an age of security cameras and videos shot on mobile devices, the PA has been left behind, and its famous propaganda machine has suffered a heavy blow. Even world media criticized Abbas' lie about the "dead" Ahmad Manasra. It was a pretty embarrassing moment for MSNBC. It isn’t every day that a journalist reporting from the field is reproached by a news anchor during a live broadcast for distorting reality. But that’s exactly what happened last week in connection with a stabbing attempt at Damascus Gate. In case you haven’t seen the viral video, here is what happened: Ayman...

    Mahmoud Abbas: Failing the Palestinians and PeacePosted By Joseph Puder On December 29, 2014 @ 12:35 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments Mahmoud Abbas, (aka Abu Mazen) has been a failure as the Palestinian “Rais.” He failed to lead the Palestinian Authority (PA) toward peace with Israel, and he mismanaged the alleged goal to achieve statehood for the Palestinians. Instead of facing the tough issues and making compromises required in negotiating peace and statehood with the Israelis, Abbas chose an alliance with the Gaza controlled terrorist group Hamas. Following Abbas’ pact with Hamas last April, Israel broke off peace negotiations with the...

Abbas told Israel's Channel 2 TV in an interview Monday that he will present the U.S. proposal for talks to the Arab League this week, and ''we hope that the...

Israel has said any progress in peacemaking after the Gaza withdrawal will require Abbas to disarm the militants — a step he so far has been unwilling to take. Abbas denounced the bombing as a "terror attack," and called on Israel to show restraint...

The militant shouted threats at police and was then beaten by them before he called in other gunmen...
