    Newly sworn in Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman was quick to announce on Monday evening that he supports the “two-state solution” to solve the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict. In a joint statement, Liberman and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed support for the recent call by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi for the sides to reach a peace agreement. “I am committed to peace with our Palestinian neighbors and with all our neighbors,” the Prime Minister said in the statement. “The Arab peace initiative includes essential elements that can help restore constructive negotiations with the Palestinians. We are ready to negotiate with the...

    Hundreds of far leftists held a protest on Saturday night at Tel Aviv's Habima Square, demonstrating against MK Avigdor Liberman being appointed Defense Minister as part of his Yisrael Beytenu party joining the coalition government. Present at the protest was MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz), former Labor MK Yael Dayan, chairperson of Meretz's management Ori Zachi - and counter-protesting the radical leftists, nationalist rap star Yoav Eliasi, better known by his stage name Hatzel. The leftist protesters bore signs reading "Liberman is a fascist," "the disaster government, we don't want any more victims," and "Liberman is war minister." Invitations to the...

    Former Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has accepted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s offer to join the coalition in return for the Defense and Immigration ministries, senior Yisrael Beytenu officials said on Wendesday. According to senior officials, the Prime Minister’s meeting Wednesday afternoon with Liberman has already laid the groundwork for Yisrael Beytenu’s entry into the government. Shortly after the meeting, Netanyahu reportedly called Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, informing him that Liberman had requested the Defense Ministry in exchange for his support of the Likud government. Senior officials have leaked details of the meeting, including Netanyahu’s offer to Liberman, which includes two...

    Opposition leader and Zionist Union party chief Yitzhak Herzog has announced he is suspending unity government talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, after the premier issued an invitation to begin talks with Yisrael Beytenu party head Avigdor Liberman. n a markedly abrupt, pithy press conference, Herzog said Netanyahu faced a choice between "going to war and funerals, and the victory of (Avigdor) Liberman and (Naftali) Bennett, or the track of hope" - namely, inviting the Zionist Union party to join the coalition instead. "These are the choices - there are no other options," he added. "We won't continue negotiations at...

    If the foreign minister thinks the prime minister is doing a lousy job, he should either shut up when outvoted or quit, not publicly undermine the PM at the height of a bitter conflict with Hamas. Israel is currently a nation at war. It has been targeted with some 1,300 rockets over the past eight days fired at its population almost everywhere in the country. Untenably, on Tuesday, Liberman sought to score points at the expense of Israelis’ faith in their leadership. Whether his prescription for Gaza is right or wrong — does Israel really want to reconquer Gaza and...

    Israeli Arab leaders continued to drum up opposition on Thursday to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s proposal that Israel offer the Palestinian Authority control over townships inhabited predominantly by Palestinians in exchange for settlements in the West Bank. During a demonstration against the Prawer-Begin Plan for Beduin resettlement, MK Ahmed Tibi lambasted “the immigrant” Liberman. “Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s statements regarding territorial swaps are provocative,” Tibi said. “We [Arabs] were in the Triangle before the establishment of the State of Israel. We didn’t come here on boats or planes.” “Liberman is an immigrant,” Tibi said. “If he wants to repartition the...

    Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) called for the recapture of Samer Issawi, the jailed terrorist who was released Monday after a 266 day hunger strike. Just after his release, Liberman notes that Issawi called for the kidnapping of IDF soldiers, saying "the release of prisoners will only be achieved through kidnapping and prisoner exchange deals, nothing will be achieved without that." ..... In 2002 Issawi was sentenced to 26 years in jail for terrorism, going free after a mere 10 years in the deal to free Gilad Shalit. After signing a promise not to return to terrorist activities, Issawi...

Herzog, who is currently in Washington where he will meet with National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Secretary of State John Kerry, was responding to Liberman’s remarks at the Saban Forum on Friday, where the Foreign Minister said that peace was impossible in the near future, because there was “zero trust” between the two sides. Herzog called on Liberman to undergo a “reality check”, saying that the Foreign Minister “should remember that even if...

"The audacity of a fascist immigrant who sits on land which he stole from its Arab owners,” Tibi charged, responding to Liberman’s remarks that the Bedouin had stolen state land and were controlling it by force. “The Bedouin in the Negev did steal any land and they did not come here either on a plane or by boat,” he added. In his comments following the violent protests in the Negev, Haifa, Samaria and Gaza, Liberman called for a new...

    <p>Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Tuesday that he’d back a GOP filibuster of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care reform bill. Lieberman, who caucuses with Democrats and is positioning himself as a fiscal hawk on the issue, said he opposes any health care bill that includes a government-run insurance program — even if it includes a provision allowing states to opt out of the program, as Reid’s has said the Senate bill will. "We're trying to do too much at once," Lieberman said. “To put this government-created insurance company on top of everything else is just asking for trouble for the taxpayers, for the premium payers and for the national debt. I don’t think we need it now." Lieberman added that he’d vote against a public option plan “even with an opt-out because it still creates a whole new government entitlement program for which taxpayers will be on the line." .................</p>

Therein lies the rub: Hagee's spokesmen do not believe the results, saying the poll - commissioned by J Street, the new left-leaning pro-Israel lobby - relied on skewed questions. As for Lieberman, the Democratic-turned-independent US senator from Connecticut is not disputing the findings, but says he pays little attention to polls. According to the poll, which has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points, Lieberman scored an unfavorable rating of 48 percent among US Jews, compared to a favorable rating of...

He said, "I now view this kind of drilling as a bridge to the next chapter of our energy history."

    As these columns went to press last night, it was still too early to call a victor in Connecticut's Senate primary. One thing is sure despite the outcome, however: Senator Lieberman confronted more than just a hard-fought campaign. He was up against a jihad. If Mr. Lieberman is celebrating a victory this morning, it's a sign that there is still room for moderation in the Democratic Party. But any celebration will be clouded by the vitriol, resembling a perverse kind of religious fervor, he had to overcome. The portent for the party's future will be only more troubling if Senator...

    Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) cut into challenger Ned Lamont's (D) lead the day before Connecticut's Democratic primary, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. The poll shows Lamont ahead of Lieberman, 51% to 45%. The why is fairly simple: Lieberman had a fairly good weekend of news coverage; virtually every Democratic voter in the state is paying attention. By attention, we mean that they are mentally projecting themselves into the voting booths, which can have a tempering effect on their energy and passion. BTW: QPAC appears to be tracking; their sample is from interviews with 784 likely voters over six days....

When lawmakers and others are pressed, the names that come up most often include several current and former members of the Senate.

    FULLERTON – Debate over a billboard that has inflamed emotions on both sides of the immigration issue on Monday reached into Fullerton, where protesters masked part of the controversial sign there with a U.S. flag.The billboard for KRCA/62's Spanish-language news program reads "Los Angeles, CA" - with "CA" crossed out and replaced with "Mexico."The flag protest heightens antagonism about the long-simmering issue, which was spotlighted after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lauded "Minuteman" volunteers last week for patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border.

(towards 60 seats )Here's the plan: Tap a Democrat to run an agency, then have the Republican governor pick a GOP replacement.One in focus right now: Connecticut US Senator Joe Liberman as the new intelligence czar.

    Election 2006 Of the 15 senators up for reelection this fall who voted to acquit Clinton in 1999, only one was defeated, but it was a big one - prince of obstruction Tom Daschle of South Dakota. Now we turn our attention to 2006. The following 14 senators who will then be up for reelection also voted to acquit Clinton and therefore disqualified themselves for public office. Moreover, all of them voted for the Harkin amendment to the bill banning partial-birth abortion. All but two of them (Byrd and Conrad) also voted on 21 Oct. 2003 against the bill to...

    "Former vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman says, 'I disagree with Senator Kerry's look back' at his earlier views on Iraq. Lieberman says he doesn't quibble with Kerry's call for a multilateral approach but suggests that there isn't that much original in the pitch. 'I don't find much difference between what he is proposing and what President Bush is doing.'" (Paul Bedard, "Washington Whispers," US News & World Report,, 10/4/04)

    Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., thinks the U.S. government needs to get control of its budget. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said he has never seen a Congress so reckless about spending. They're right, of course. Though Sen. McCain has a record of action against wasteful government spending, Sen. Lieberman's new-found frugality is something to behold. Sen. Lieberman said unless Congress tightens its belt, it may be forced to reduce appropriations for education, defense and entitlements. He blamed the government's flagging financial fortunes on "bi-partisan old-fashioned political pork barreling. ... We must make the tough choices today that will protect us from...

    <p>SENATOR Joseph Lieberman plays one of the most tangled games of "Twister" in US politics.</p> <p>He is a knee-jerk lefty on most domestic issues but a decided hawk on foreign affairs. The ardently conservative National Review endorsed his first run for the US Senate, but the ardently liberal Americans for Democratic Action regularly gives him high marks (2002 ADA rating: 85 percent). In 1998 he famously condemned President Clinton's extramarital behavior as "immoral," but on the campaign trail in 2003, he routinely invokes -- and claims to embody -- Clinton's political legacy.</p>

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 — Their nearly weekly debates have been the biggest events of the season for the Democratic presidential candidates. They build their travel schedules around the televised encounters. Their aides devote hours to coming up with catchy retorts. And the forums draw more press coverage than anything else the candidates do. Even so, many of the top candidates and their aides are at their wits' end over the televised jousts. Some openly contend that the events are simply a waste of time. "I think the crowded field allows the most shrill, conflict-oriented, confrontational voices to be heard," Senator...

    Can the real Joe Lieberman be making a comeback? Gosh, let's hope so. I've missed that guy since he disappeared in a cloud of campaign rhetoric a couple of years ago, and was replaced by some imposter spouting the party line. Announcing for president last week, Senator Lieberman billed himself as "a different kind of Democrat," which would be a nice change after Al Gore. It'd be good to have one Democrat who'd stand out among the ideological look-alikes now pursuing their party's presidential nomination in Oh-Four. Maybe Joe will be the one. Then again, I thought Joe Lieberman was...

It's just that I have been traumatized by recent events both in and out of Washington DC and this has brought me a new perspective, well maybe not entirely new but it has brought me back to the days when I as a young talented lad, literally danced across the face of America and Europe with my dearest friends Edgar Bergen, Charlie McCarthy and the best damn funny man ever, W.C....

    <p>President Bush's insistence on winning broad personnel powers over the proposed Homeland Security Department is an insult to unionized government employees, the chief Senate sponsor of legislation that would establish the agency said Sunday.</p> <p>"This is a phony issue, and it ought not to stop the president from signing this bill," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn. "This bill will protect the American people."</p>
