editor 17 August 2017

By Andrew Friedman.. Palestinians and Arab MKs declared ‘victory’ Tuesday (July 25, 2017) as Israel reversed security measures at the Temple Mount, and said their struggle for control over the compound also extends to the Western Wall.

The Over-Dramatization of Israel’s “Dilemma”

editor 3 June 2017

By Dr. Max Singer.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 479, May 28, 2017

Executive Summary: Israel is not facing a dilemma about how much, if any,  land to give up from the West Bank, because the Palestinians will not agree to take land and cannot be forced to do so. The Palestinian community sees peace with Israel as defeat in their 100-year struggle. Continued Israeli occupation is one of the Palestinians’ best weapons against Israel, and they will not give it up while their war to eliminate Israel continues. (more…)

Yair Lapid: Israel not the problem in negotiations

editor 21 May 2017

By Fox News.. Yair Lapid, chairman of the Israeli opposition Yesh Atid Party, said Sunday (May 14, 2017), “Israel has been looking for an opportunity to separate from the Palestinians for years and years now.
