Skip to comments.Min. Peretz: Bayit Yehudi Torpedoing Peace
Posted on 08/11/2013 2:22:23 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz (Hatnua) accused the Bayit Yehudi party Sunday of recklessly endangering the peace process with the initiative to approve 1,200 housing tenders in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. The decision was announced by Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel.
"While [Hatnua leader] Minister Tzipi Livni is making extensive efforts to convince the leaders of Europe that we desire peace, and that the matter of borders will only be determined in negotiations between us and the Palestinians, Minister Ariel is busy with an unnecessary provocation and with messages that run counter to the prime minister's decision to renew the negotiations, Peretz said.
"The members of Bayit Yehudi apparently feel that there is a chance for peace, and leave no stone unturned in an effort to sabotage it, he added.
"This is irresponsibility. Whoever endangers the political process risks losing control on the regional level, Peretz charged.
Yesh Atid head, Finance Minister Yair Lapid, voiced similar sentiments earlier in the day, albeit slightly less harshly.

A chance for piece? Hah.
A chance for pieces.
This is a news story? Peretz is a nobody in a party that is barely alive. Who cares what he says? Lapid is something else again, but he just commented for the protocol. It was obvious that Obama wasn’t going to get settlement freezes twice for his phoney talks. This time they threw him some prisoners.
The enemy within a nation is far more dangerous than the enemy without
For a party that’s barely alive, its head, Tzipi Livni, seems to have an awful lot of responsibilities. She’s an incurable ditz and a flake, who doomed Kadima to the fate it so richly deserved, but for some reason she’s Bibi’s negotiator.
Funny, it doesn’t LOOK like Bibi!?
Nor like Naftali Bennett.
There’s her and the two has-beens from Labor, Peretz and Mitzna. She’s on an ego-trip. If the peace talks actual move, which they haven’t in 20 years, then we can pay some attention. The damage is the release of the prisoners which is strictly a sop to Obama. Israel is only place in the Middle East where drastic methods for peace are not needed: viz, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen etc etc etc. Obama is doing nothing for the victims of actual violence in those countries.
And Bibi is enabling her ego trip in order to keep this joke of a party in the government, so that he can keep the Charedim out and Yair Lapid’s equally comical party (but for its 19 seats) in. The end result: terrorists go free and the clowns are running the circus.
Tzipi Livni is a traitor, basically. A knee-jerk appeaser. And we see where appeasement gets you. She reminds me a LOT of Gillibrand.
