    The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) chief negotiator for peace talks with Israel on Sunday condemned the vote by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation in favor of a bill that would annex the Jordan Valley and place it under full Israeli sovereignty. Four ministers voted in favor of the draft law, which was proposed by Likud MK Miri Regev. Three opposed it. Responding to the vote, chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat told the Ma’an news agency that the decision destroys all efforts for peace with Israel, showing the Israeli government's "indifference" toward international law. Erekat added that the PA’s response should be...

    Opposition leader MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) on Saturday accused Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman of trying to sabotage the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. 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 European Union (EU) is apparently fed up with the lack of progress in peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) and is threatening to take action against both sides if the talks fail. A senior EU official said Tuesday that the bloc was considering cutting its annual aid to the PA if the current round of talks fails to end in an agreement. The EU provides the PA with about 300 million Euros in aid per year. As well, the official was quoted by Israeli media as having said, the 28-nation bloc was considering reviving its plan...

    Peace is not possible so long as there is even one terrorist prisoner still in an Israeli prison, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas declared on Tuesday night. According to Kol Yisrael radio, Abbas made the comments in a welcoming ceremony for 21 Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists who had been released from Israeli jails as a gesture to Abbas. Abbas added, the report said, that the PA would continue its efforts to ensure that all terrorists serving time in Israeli jails are freed. "All 104 prisoners [that Israel has agreed to release] will be released, but the real joy will only...

    More than 3,000 people demonstrated on Monday evening outside the Ofer prison against the imminent release of terrorist murderers from Israeli prisons. 26 terrorists are set to be released on Tuesday, as part of a “gesture” to the Palestinian Authority so that it agrees to continue holding peace talks with Israel. Attendees at Monday’s protest included family members of the killers’ victims, who will be forced to see their relatives’ murderers being freed, as well as public officials. Among the speakers were Housing Minister Uri Ariel and MKs Ayelet Shaked, Shuli Moalem and Orit Struk, all from the Bayit Yehudi...
  • US Warns PA Statehood Bid Would Jeopardize Peace Process

    The Palestinian Authority's bid for statehood at the United Nations next month would jeopardize the peace process with Israel, U.S. ambassador Susan Rice said Monday during a Security Council debate on the Middle East. The United States was able to stop the PA’s bid for statehood last year by threatening a veto at the Security Council. This time, however, they are seeking recognition as a non-member state, similar to the Vatican, which only needs approval by the General Assembly and is not subject to veto. “Unilateral actions, including initiatives to grant Palestinians non-member state observer status at the United Nations,...

    The Obama administration is making a desperate last-minute attempt to return to the “peace process” and stop the Palestinian Authority from going to the United Nations for recognition, The New York Times reported Sunday morning. It said that the United States has presented a new proposal to bring PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas back to direct discussions with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, but while ”the Israelis have so far responded positively to the draft… the Palestinian position remains unclear.” Details of the proposal are not known, but it generally reflects President Barack Obama’s new “roadmap” he stated in May, including a...

    Palestinian negotiators privately agreed that only 10, 000 refugees and their families – out of a total refugee population exceeding 5 million – could return to Israel as part of a peace settlement, leaked confidential documents reveal. PLO leaders also accepted Israel's demand to define itself as an explicitly Jewish state, in sharp contrast to their public position. The latest disclosures from thousands of pages of secret Palestinian records of more than a decade of failed peace talks, obtained by al-Jazeera TV... The latest documents to be released reveal: • The-then Israeli foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, repeatedly pressed in 2007-08...

    JERUSALEM -Israel's prime minister demanded Sunday that any future Palestinian state be demilitarized and recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland, as he staked out his starting position for new Mideast peace talks. Benjamin Netanyahu said reaching a deal will be difficult but possible. The conditions he laid down, coupled with a swift Palestinian rejection, illustrated just how difficult the task will be for the U.S. to meet its goal of brokering peace within a year. Talks are set to begin in Washington next week. "We want to surprise all of the critics and skeptics. But to do that we need...
