Latest Benjamin Netanyahu Items
Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians that are set to begin next week in Washington may be scuttled before they even get going. Israel has yet to commit to extending a freeze on construction of settlements that the Palestinian side says it needs to continue negotiations.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spelled out his opening position for the new round of Mideast peace talks set to begin next week, insisting Sunday on key security conditions and saying an agreement would be "difficult but possible."
Plunging into the Mideast peacemaker's role that has defeated so many U.S. leaders, President Barack Obama on Friday invited Israel and the Palestinians to try anew in face-to-face talks in Washington for a historic agreement to establish an independent Palestinian state and secure peace for Israel.
The NATO force in Afghanistan said Monday it had killed an al Qaeda cell leader after he was pinpointed by alliance aircraft while carrying out an attack on a police post.
Israel should admit sole responsibility for the killing of nine activists during a raid on a Gaza aid flotilla, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Tuesday.
The Obama administration is optimistic that the Palestinian Authority will return to direct talks with Israel after nearly two years of shunning face-to-face negotiations.
Current news about Israel's interdiction of the Gaza flotilla centers on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's willingness to cooperate with a planned United Nations investigation. Leaving aside that the "international community" never calls for an equivalent investigation of endless Palestinian rocket attacks upon Israeli civilians from Gaza - Arab terror that made an Israeli blockade indispensable in the first place - the flotilla incident was merely the tip of a much larger iceberg. This far more critical and underlying danger is the impending creation of a Palestinian state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the deadly commando raid on an international flotilla protesting the Gaza blockade in opening testimony before an internal inquiry commission Monday, and suggested Turkey had sought the violent confrontation on board.
Tempers flared in the Middle East on Tuesday after a morning border skirmish between Israeli and Lebanese soldiers left four Lebanese and one Israeli dead.
