    The invisible economic war against Israel has already begun. Some countries are planning to impose new sanctions against Israeli products, while others will raise tariffs and make trade more difficult. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called this week for the nations of the world to “put pressure” on Israel to force them to make concessions in the name of peace. This is a deliberate attempt to destroy Israel’s economy. This is new warfare for the modern age—before the rockets fly and the tanks roll, and the boycotts and economic sanctions fall. The OPEC nations are using their vast oil wealth...

    Mideast: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks direct, unconditional talks with the Palestinians, while movingly making the case for Israel's security. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas chooses bloodshed. Militant Arabs seem to believe in regard to the U.S.-Israeli relationship what the Soviet Union did about the Cold War: that America will go soft; you just have to play the waiting game. After speaking before the U.N. General Assembly over the weekend, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" and was asked if the so-called Arab Spring had made Israel more isolated. "Well, we're not isolated in this country,"...

    Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has handed over a historic request to UN chief Ban Ki-moon asking the United Nations to admit the state of Palestine as a full member. The Palestinian leader won huge applause and a standing ovation on Friday from some of the assembly as he entered the hall before beginning his speech. Abbas said he was ready to return to the negotiations, saying he did not want to isolate or delegitimize Israel. "Here I declare that the Palestine Liberation Organization is ready to return immediately to the negotiating table on the basis of the adopted terms of...

    Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's calls for an immediate resumption of negotiations as insincere. "He talks about making painful concessions, but he has not made a single concession on the ground," Shaath said in a Saturday interview with Channel 2, adding that twenty years of negotiations with Israel has led the Western-backed Palestinian Authority nowhere. Shaath stated that the United Nations bid did not contradict negotiations and asserted that the PA would enter negotiations if Netanyahu agrees to ban all Jewish construction in Israel's disputed Samaria and Judea regions. "Netanyahu must say 'peace is more...

Harper made his move in a meeting at the United Nations with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Under Harper’s leadership, Canada has been an outspoken supporter of Israel in recent years. And on Wednesday, Harper publicly reinforced that relationship with a critically timed message of support.

    Palestinian Authority officials said Thursday they will pursue their statehood bid at the United Nations despite Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's offer to use the pre-1967 lines as a basis for negotiations. Senior PA official Saeb Erekat characterized Netanyahu's concession as a publicity stunt intended to disuade the PA from its unilateral statehood bid outside the framework Oslo Accords that allow it to exist. "The Palestinian train is now heading towards New York," Erekat said during an Arab League committee meeting in Doha, Qatar late Wednesday. "Members of the committee reached a final agreement to request the full support for...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is reported to have accepted US President Barack Obama's plan on Monday saying he would resume peace talks based on pre-1967-lines with land swaps. The borders would change, but this would be the starting point for talks, sources said. If true, the move is a reversal of Netanyahu's own firm position that such negotiations would be unacceptable to Israel as they could not possibly result in secure, defensible borders for the Jewish state. It is unclear what has become of Netanyahu's other requirements for negotiations, such as PA recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, at...

In an op-ed piece for Ma’ariv, Peace Now Director-General Yariv Oppenheimer called Netanyahu’s behavior “unprecedented.” It was no coincidence, he explained, that the Prime Minister’s “Israeli arrogance broke records,” and that “sentences that are supposed to be said behind closed doors and in internal discussions were exhibited for all to see in a condescending and ugly manner.” Netanyahu’s “supercilious and patronizing attitude” in "scolding" Obama stems from the fact that...

    Israel’s friends and foes seem to be dancing at the same wedding. Those people at AIPAC applauded when President Obama urged a two-state “solution” and even when he proposed a land “swap.” I’m not sure if he used the word “transfer” but it’s on the lips of everybody else. Is anybody listening to these words? That language goes back to the Wannsee Conference, Jan. 1942. This is where the Holocaust officially began when Hitler’s lieutenants met to formulate a “final solution to the Jewish question.” We’re still talking about this? I sometimes wonder if people forget that we left Auschwitz...

Netanyahu's remarks after the White House talks underscored how a new U.S. push for Middle East peace had opened one of the deepest divides in years in relations between the United States and close ally Israel. "Peace based on illusions will crash eventually on the rocks of Middle East reality," an unsmiling Netanyahu told Obama in the Oval Office.

    In return for his call for the establishment of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, without defining the size of these lands, Obama accepted Netanyahu's demands for strict security arrangements and a gradual, continuous withdrawal from the West Bank. He suggested beginning negotiations on borders and security arrangements, and delaying discussions on the core issues such as Jerusalem and refugees. More importantly, Obama scornfully rejected the Palestinian initiative to attain recognition at the United Nations and to isolate Israel, demanded the Palestinians return to negotiations, and called on Hamas to recognize Israel's right to exist....

    Israel said the United States "does not understand reality" as its leader arrived in Washington on Friday after President Barack Obama endorsed a longstanding Palestinian demand on borders of a future state. In a policy speech on the eve of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit, Obama laid down his clearest markers yet on the compromises he believes Israel and the Palestinians must make to resolve the decades-old conflict. Obama embraced the Palestinian view that the state they seek in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip should largely be drawn along lines that existed before the 1967 war in...

Thirty years ago this month, as a result of the famed Six Day War, Israel regained Biblical Jerusalem, as well as Gaza, the Sinai, and the Golan Heights. Although these areas were part of the original mandated land, and are undeniably essential for Israel's defense, it has become strangely "politically correct" to assume that peace in the Middle East is dependent upon their yielding these lands-the so-called "West Bank"-back to their enemies which...

A Palestinian state will have to be demilitarized and a peace treaty must safeguard Israel’s security.
