To say that the Palestinians gave up a neighborhood in an agreement that he rejected is just going too far. Does Netanyahu not realize he is talking out of both sides of his mouth?
The PA Pres. Abbas has sent a message of Support to Mubarak. He know what Merkel is blind to, if Mubarak falls the so called peace process is dead till Egypt stabilizes with the probability being that Egypt will renounce it's peace treaty with Israel. Iran is creating a new M.E.
I grew up on our family history in the German city of Breslau where Jews were not wanted. First it was cries of Juden get out of Germany go to Palestine!
Later, they were restricted to certain Jude apartments and finally they were sent for slave labor and extermination at Grossrosen. There only by the grace of G-d my mother survived as a teenage laborer on the stone quarries.
How ironic then that today the Prime Minister of Germany comes to the State of Israel and says Jews can not live in their historic homeland!!
like many europeans merkel would rather stop israel' housing policy than hamas, which is battling egypt in the sinai.
When will Germany build synagoguges for the Russian Jewish immigrnts it encourages to come to Germany rather than to Israel? Jews live like Turks in Germany!! When Germany presents a equal alternative, then and only then can she speak out in this regard.
Israel is NOT the problem in the Middle East. Building bedrooms for Jewish children is NOT the problem. Find another villian. Jews are the Good Guys.
Quick! Get back to the negotiations table. It is now more urgent than ever! :P)
International leaders should give it up. They are sounding totally out of touch with reality.
your people murdered my entire family over 1100 killed and you have the nerve to tell israel to not populate
"...Israel expected to offer a package of confidence- building measures to the Palestinians..." LOL, spare yourself these fake confidence-building measures"
- the only credible measure for confidence is stopping the settlement mania !
every single world leader has repeated the same thing: stop settlement building. but this message just doesn't get through inside his head and keeps saying that settlements are not an obstacle to peace. they are the paramount problem, and he knows it, just like every staunch and unwilling israeli or jew in all the world know it. the island of stability that he envisages is only in his imaginary world. mr netanyahu should return his feet back on the ground. if he has a bit of sense of smell, let him use it, fast.
