Secretary of State John Kerry announced Friday that a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians is closer than ever, a somewhat surprising claim given the opposite reactions of other key players involved in the talks.
Israel soon may give 7.7 square miles of land in the West Bank that it has controlled since the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accords to the Palestinian Authority for farming.
A team of French investigators have ruled out the possibility that deceased Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned, contrary to a previous report by Swiss scientists that said tests on his body showed "unexpected high activity" of polonium.
One year ago, on Nov. 29, 2012, the U.N. General Assembly voted to upgrade the Palestinian Authority (PA) to the status of a "nonmember observer state."
Swiss scientists say they are 83 percent confident that deceased Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned after tests revealed at least 18 times the normal levels of radioactive polonium in his remains, Al Jazeera America first reported.
The children's educational magazine Zayzafuna, sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, enlightens youngsters with Adolf Hitler's flair by wrongly attributing 10 quotes to the diseased dictator.
The U.S. ambassador to Israel was astounded when he peered into a tunnel for terrorists dug from the Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip into the Jewish state.
The Palestinian Authority's Supreme Fatwa Council ruled Tuesday that men and women can now date online for the purpose of marriage, The Jerusalem Post reported.
The Palestinian Authority condemned the Hamas government of the Gaza Strip for refusing to allow 86 Palestinians to visit Saudi Arabia to undertake the Hajj pilgrimage, the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency reported.
President Obama used his annual address to the United Nations on Tuesday to say he sees an opening for diplomacy with Iran and would pursue a deal to stop the Islamic republic's pursuit of nuclear weapons — but his words were soon overshadowed by the handshake that wasn't.
Israel's housing minister on Sunday gave final approval for building nearly 1,200 new settlement apartments on lands the Palestinians want for their state, just three days before U.S.-sponsored talks on the borders of such a state are to begin in Jerusalem.
Winston Churchill famously said, "To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war." That seems true enough — except when jaw-jaw is another way of making war-war. As the U.S. starts yet another round of peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, we had best remember the risks associated with past failed negotiations.
"Lunacy." That's how Danny Danon describes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to hand over 104 killers to the Palestinian Authority as a "good-will gesture."
Israeli representatives are now meeting with Palestinian Arabs ("Amid Mideast revolt, a chance for Israeli-Palestinian peace," Web, July 29). The Israeli leaders were selected by a democratically elected government; the Palestinian leaders were selected by a government whose term in office has long since expired and that twice canceled presidential elections. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and his cronies legitimately represent nobody — not in the West Bank, and certainly not in the Gaza Strip, where a terrorist organization rules by terrorizing all who would oppose it.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said to a group of reporters in Egypt on Tuesday that any peace plan with Israel would have to include this concession: Israelis would be forever banned from Palestinian properties.
