- Abbas sentenced hundreds of Syrian Palestinians to death in 2013 (poster) (Elder of Ziyon) - "Abbas said Ban Ki-moon was told Israel "agreed to the return of those refugees to Gaza and the West Bank, but on condition that each refugee ... sign a statement that he doesn't have the right of return (to Israel)." "So we rejected that and said it's better they die in Syria than give up their right of return," Abbas told the group".

Gaza & Hamas

- Israël intercepte un navire venant d'Iran rempli de missiles, Cyrille Louis (Le Figaro) - «Jamais lors de ces interceptions on n'avait trouvé des armes aussi dangereuses».
http://www.lefigaro.fr/international/2014/03/05/01003-20140305ARTFIG00274-israel-intercepte-un-navire-venant-d-iran-rempli-de-missiles.php
   "L'armée israélienne a annoncé mercredi avoir intercepté, au large du Soudan, un bâtiment civil provenant d'Iran et transportant à son bord plusieurs dizaines de missiles sol-sol de moyenne portée. D'après le ministère de la Défense, ces armes fabriquées en Syrie devaient être convoyées vers la bande de Gaza à travers l'Égypte. [...]
    Selon le lieutenant-colonel Peter Lerner, porte-parole de l'armée israélienne, l'assaut a été conduit vers six heures du matin, à quelque 1500 kilomètres des côtes israéliennes, par l'unité de commando de marine Shayetet 13. L'ordre d'arraisonner a été donné par le premier ministre Benyamin Nétanyahou, qui a aussitôt rendu hommage à l'armée et au Mossad «pour la précision avec laquelle l'opération a été conduite».
    Les missiles M-302 découverts à bord, dissimulés sous des sacs de ciment iranien, étaient depuis plusieurs mois sous l'étroite surveillance des services secrets israéliens. Ils auraient été fabriqués à Damas avant d'être expédiés par avion à Téhéran. De là, ils auraient été convoyés vers le port de Bandar Abbas pour y être chargés à bord du KLOS C, un navire battant pavillon panaméen. Par souci, peut-être, de détourner les soupçons, l'embarcation aurait dans un premier temps fait route vers le port irakien de Umm al-Qasr, avant de mettre cap au sud pour contourner la péninsule arabique et gagner la mer Rouge. Dans les prochains jours, elle devait enfin jeter l'ancre à Port-Soudan et y décharger son inquiétant arsenal.
    Cette opération n'est certes pas la première du genre. En 2003, la Marine israélienne avait intercepté le «Karine A», qui transportait à son bord près de cinquante tonnes d'armes destinées à la bande de Gaza - missiles, mortiers, fusils et munitions. En 2009, cinq cents tonnes d'armement furent également découvertes à bord du «Francop», arraisonné au large de Chypre. En mars 2011, enfin, le «Victoria» avait été pris d'assaut près des côtes israéliennes avec d'importantes quantités de matériel militaire.
   «Jamais lors de ces interceptions on n'avait trouvé des armes aussi dangereuses», assure cependant le lieutenant-colonel Lerner, qui précise : «les missiles M-302, dans le modèle avancé découvert à bord, ont une portée de 200 kilomètres. Si elles avaient été livrées dans la bande de Gaza, elles auraient permis aux groupes terroristes d'atteindre l'ensemble du territoire israélien, de Nahariya au nord à Eilat au sud…» Le KLOS C, dont les cales étaient encore en cours d'inspection mercredi après-midi, transporterait également des armes plus légères.
    Cette découverte tombe à point nommé pour le gouvernement israélien, qui s'inquiète du rapprochement engagé ces derniers mois entre Téhéran et les grandes puissances occidentales. En voyage aux États-Unis, Benyamin Nétanyahou venait d'ailleurs d'inciter une énième fois son plus proche allié à ne pas baisser la garde sur le dossier du nucléaire lorsque l'arraisonnement a été rendu public. «Au moment même où il parle aux grandes puissances, où il sourit et leur dit tout un tas de mots mielleux, l'Iran envoie des armes létales aux organisations terroristes», a commenté le premier ministre israélien. «Voici le véritable Iran et il n'est pas acceptable que cet État possède des armes nucléaires.» [...]"

"Processus de paix"

- PA: 'Grave mistake' for Abbas to accept unsatisfactory deal, Khaled Abu Toameh (JP) - "Ahead of Obama-Abbas meeting, Palestinian Authority pressures Abbas not to accept an agreement that would not satisfy majority of Palestinians".
http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/PA-Grave-mistake-for-Abbas-to-accept-unsatisfactory-deal-344591
   "Palestinian officials in Ramallah on Thursday expressed fear that US President Barack Obama would exert heavy pressure on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to accept a US-sponsored framework agreement with Israel. Abbas is scheduled to meet with Obama in Washington on March 17. The officials said that it would be a "grave mistake" to force Abbas to accept any agreement that does not satisfy a majority of Palestinians. [...]
    Although the Palestinians are opposed to the extension of the talks beyond April 30, "they are convinced that they have no real choice but to continue with the negotiations if they want to avoid being blamed for the failure of the peace process," the paper reported. "Obama doesn't realize that there's a limit to how far Abbas can go in making concessions," said a PA official in Ramallah.
    Mohamed Shtayyeh, member of the Fatah Central Committee, accused Israel of working to thwart Kerry's efforts to achieve peace in the region. Shtayyeh said that Israel's refusal to comply with Palestinian demands on final status issues like Jerusalem, refugees, borders and settlements remains the main obstacle to reaching an agreement.
    Another top Fatah official, Nabil Sha'ath, reiterated the Palestinians' refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and accused Washington of "bias" in favor of Israel. Sha'ath claimed that the US Administration has "endorsed" the Israeli perspective on the continued presence of IDF troops and settlement blocs in parts of the West Bank. He also accused the US of seeking to "abolish" the "right of return" for Palestinian refugees.
    Sabri Saidam, a senior advisor to Abbas, warned that Israel was preparing to blame the Palestinians for the failure of the peace talks. He said that he did not rule out the possibility that Israel would seek to isolate Abbas and the PA leadership in the send tanks to Ramallah to destroy the Mukata presidential compound."

   "Israel will not accept any conditions for a continuation of talks with the Palestinians, foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday, rejecting new Palestinian demands that Israel freeze settlement construction and release more Palestinian prisoners in order to continue negotiations past their late April deadline. "There will be no conditions," Liberman said Wednesday at a meeting in Tel Aviv of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Israel. "We are willing to listen and to talk, but we will not accept conditions. Those who want to set conditions should look for other partners," he said. [...] "Giving in to conditions has never helped in the past," Liberman said. "It is important to remember history, people try to deny history." [...]"

- Netanyahu: Some settlements won’t be retained by Israel (Times of Israel)
http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-some-settlements-wont-be-retained-by-israel/
   "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged that some West Bank settlements would not come under Israeli sovereignty should there be a final peace deal with the Palestinians. “Of course some of the settlements won’t be part of the deal, everyone understands that,” he said when he sat down for his first interviews with the Israeli media in over a year. “I will make sure that [number] is as limited as possible, if we get there,” the prime minister added to Udi Segal of Israel’s Channel 2 News.
    During the interview, which airs in its entirety on Saturday night, Netanyahu repeatedly stated that he plans to leave no Israeli without Israeli protection in any potential peace deal, referring indirectly to one of the main issues of contention with the Palestinians, who demand for their state a West Bank that is IDF-free. In an interview with Channel 10, Netanyahu said he “hasn’t offered” a settlement freeze in a bid to advance negotiations, but didn’t quite rule one out. He recalled that he froze settlement expansion in 2009-2010, and that this did not yield a diplomatic breakthrough. [...]"

[...] Construction decreased dramatically after Bibi agreed to a 10-month construction freeze (beginning in late 2009), but the rate of building still remained low in the 2 1/2 years after the freeze ended – and only increased significantly in 2013".

- "Settlements" Not an Obstacle to Peace (CAMERA) - "Imagine a deal is negotiated and a border is established somewhere. Put it anywhere. Put it on the 1949 armistice line. Put it right through the middle of Ma’ale Adumim, if you want. Then some new Israeli towns will be on the Israeli side of the border and some will be on the Palestinian side. So what? What is the problem with that? “Settlements” are only an obstacle if you accept that no Jews can live in a Palestinian state; that Palestine must be, as the Nazis wanted Europe to be, Judenrein (Jew-free). Twenty percent of Israelis are not Jewish – most of them Arabs – yet zero percent of Palestinians can be Jewish? That would be crazy".

- Terrorist who planned murder of Israeli minister Ze'evi honored by PA (PMW)
http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=10880
   "Despite the ongoing peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, PA leaders persist in their glorification of killers of Israeli civilians. Recently, the PA's Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs chose to honor the families of several terrorists imprisoned in Israel "out of appreciation for their heroic sacrifice." Among the terrorists honored at the ceremony were Ahed Abu Gholmeh, who is serving a life sentence for planning the murder of Israeli Minister of Tourism Rehavam Ze'evi ("Ghandi") in 2001, and Ahmad Sa'adat, who is serving a 30-year sentence for heading the PFLP terror organization. A song played at a PFLP event praised Sa'adat for planning the murder of the Israeli minister, but he has not been tried for this crime. [...]"

http://rue89.nouvelobs.com/2014/03/06/retour-photo-double-peine-palestiniens-damas-250444
   "[...] il existe un profond non-dit autour de la situation des réfugiés palestiniens qui vivent sans aucune citoyenneté et bien souvent sans aucun droit et avenir dans les pays arabes. Au Liban, les camps de réfugiés palestiniens sont pour la plupart à l’extérieur des agglomérations et leur accès est drastiquement contrôlé par l’armée libanaise.
    En outre, les réfugiés palestiniens n’ont pas le droit d’exercer une liste de plus de 70 métiers. Autant dire qu’ils sont délibérément et violemment maintenus dans ce statut de réfugié, de citoyen sans droit : ils n’ont ni horizon, ni avenir, ni même espoir. Ils sont reclus et marginalisés dans des îlots de pauvreté, comme le montre brillamment le documentaire « A World Not Ours » (M. Fleifel, 2012). [...]
    Ces hommes, ces femmes et ces enfants que l’on voit dans cette marée humaine sont donc des réfugiés palestiniens : des hommes, des femmes et des enfants que la communauté internationale considère comme réfugiés depuis presque 70 ans, sans chercher à trouver de solution concrète les concernant.

- En 2013, le nombre d'actes antisémites a baissé (AFP) - "mais il est supérieur de 9 % à celui de 2011" ; "40 % des violences racistes commises en France en 2013 étaient dirigées contre des juifs, lesquels représentent un peu moins de 1 % de la population".
http://www.20minutes.fr/societe/1312602-20140302-baisse-actes-antisemites-2013-proportions-escomptees
   "Le nombre d'actes antisémites recensés en 2013 a diminué de 31 % par rapport à 2012, année «hors norme en matière d'antisémitisme», mais il est supérieur de 9 % à celui de 2011 pourtant «déjà très préoccupant», note dans son rapport annuel le Service de protection de la communauté juive (SPCJ). Dans un entretien au JDD, le président du Conseil représentatif des institutions juives (Crif), Roger Cukierman, juge également les premiers mois de 2014 «très inquiétants». «Je crains que l'affaire Dieudonné n'entraîne un nouveau pic d'actions antisémites», dit-il. [...]
    40 % des violences racistes commises en France en 2013 étaient dirigées contre des juifs, lesquels représentent un peu moins de 1 % de la population, relève encore le SPCJ. Selon lui, les chiffres ne recouvrent pas toute la réalité du problème, puisque «le nombre de sites internet, blogs, forum, mails de nature antisémite se développe de façon exponentielle sur la toile et ne sont pas, à ce jour, comptabilisés». L'antisémitisme «ne peut plus être considéré comme un phénomène conjoncturel lié aux événements et conflits du Proche-Orient», estime le service de protection de la communauté juive, «il s'agit d'un mal structurel qui, n'étant pas combattu comme tel, n'a pu être enrayé à ce jour». [...]
    Dans une analyse insérée dans le rapport, l'essayiste et documentariste Jacques Tarnero estime que Dieudonné, l'humoriste-polémiste dont des spectacles ont été interdits et plusieurs fois condamnés pour des propos antisémites, «ne s'est pas fait tout seul. Il n'est pas un ovni tombé du ciel». Roger Cukierman rappelle que lors d'une manifestation en janvier à Paris «des gens d'extrême droite ont scandé "juif fous le camp, la France n'est pas à toi"». Au dîner du Crif, il compte appeler à un «grand rassemblement contre l'antisémitisme et pour la fraternité républicaine» à Paris le 19 mars, deux ans après les assassinats de Toulouse. [...]"

   "Un tribunal égyptien a interdit mardi toutes les activités du Hamas en Egypte, a rapporté l’agence d’information Reuters, citant un juge égyptien. Le Hamas est issu des Frères musulmans, une organisation égyptienne déclarée "groupe terroriste" par le gouvernement égyptien fin janvier. Les Frères font face à une vague de répression depuis que l’armée a renversé son dirigeant, Mohamed Morsi, de la présidence du pays en juillet dernier. Les autorités égyptiennes voient le Hamas comme une menace majeure pour la sécurité, accusant le groupe de soutenir al-Qaïda, qui inspire les insurgés islamistes dans la péninsule du Sinaï. Le Hamas nie ces allégations.
   "Le tribunal a ordonné l’interdiction du travail et des activités du Hamas en Egypte", a confié le juge à Reuters. Le tribunal a également ordonné la fermeture des bureaux du Hamas en Egypte. "La décision porte atteinte à l’image de l’Egypte et à son rôle à l’égard de la cause palestinienne. Elle reflète une position contre la résistance palestinienne", a déclaré le porte-parole du groupe, Sami Abou Zouhri. La plainte a été déposée par un groupe d’avocats égyptiens en 2013. Ils demandaient au Hamas d’être banni et d’être désigné comme une organisation terroriste. [...]"

Le blocus de Gaza n'a été véritablement levé que pour les personnes et Morsi a continué à détruire des tunnels même si le flot de marchandises avait pu s'accroître. Bien plus, à l'occasion de l'opération israélienne contre Gaza de la fin 2012, l'Egypte a accepté d'être partie prenante de l'accord de cessez-le-feu et donc de veiller à empêcher toute entrée d'armement à Gaza".

   "Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday that if US Secretary of State John Kerry's framework agreement fails to give a satisfactory answer to the core issues he will stop negotiations with Israel and turn to international bodies for unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state. Speaking during a meeting with Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On, Abbas said that "the only chance that we will agree to extend the talks will be if Netanyahu declares a settlement construction freeze and the releasing of more prisoners." The nine-month period which Kerry set out for negotiations is set to end on April 29. [...]"

- Full transcript of Obama and Netanyahu statements (Times of Israel) - Netanyahu: "Israel has been doing its part, and I regret to say that the Palestinians haven’t".
http://www.timesofisrael.com/full-transcript-of-obama-netanyahu-photo-op/
    - Netanyahou à propos du processus de paix : "The 20 years that have passed since Israel entered the peace process have been marked by unprecedented steps that Israel has taken to advance peace. I mean, we vacated cities in Judea and Samaria. We left entirely Gaza. We’ve not only frozen settlements, we’ve uprooted entire settlements. We’ve released hundreds of terrorist prisoners, including dozens in recent months. And when you look at what we got in return, it’s been scores of suicide bombings, thousands of rockets on our cities fired from the areas we vacated, and just incessant Palestinian incitement against Israel. So Israel has been doing its part, and I regret to say that the Palestinians haven’t.
    Now, I know this flies in the face of conventional wisdom, but it’s the truth. And the people of Israel know that it’s the truth because they’ve been living it. What they want is peace. What we all want fervently is peace. Not a piece a paper –- although that, too — but a real peace; a peace that is anchored in mutual recognition of two nation states that recognize and respect one another, and solid security arrangements on the ground.
    Mr. President [Obama], you rightly said that Israel, the Jewish state, is the realization of the Jewish people’s self-determination in our ancestral homeland. So the Palestinians expect us to recognize a Palestinian state for the Palestinian people, a nation state for the Palestinian people. I think it’s about time they recognize a nation state for the Jewish people. We’ve only been there for 4,000 years.
    And I hope President Abbas does this, as I hope that he’ll take seriously Israel’s genuine security needs. Because, as you know and I think everybody does, in the Middle East, which is definitely the most turbulent and violent part of the Earth, the only peace that will endure is a peace that we can defend. And we’ve learned from our history — Jewish history, but I think from general history — that the best way to guarantee peace is to be strong. And that’s what the people of Israel expect me to do –- to stand strong against criticism, against pressure, stand strong to secure the future of the one and only Jewish state.
    And I think there is a partnership there, a partnership between Israel and America, that I think is important for this end. I want to thank you again for your friendship and your hospitality, and the warmth you’ve shown me on the snowy Washington day. I thank you. It’s good to see you again."

http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-to-abbas-no-excuses-recognize-jewish-state-now/
   "Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas must recognize Israel as a Jewish state to show he is serious about ending the conflict, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told some 14,000 activists at AIPAC’s annual policy conference Tuesday. Delivering the confab’s keynote address, Netanyahu called on Abbas to quit making excuses over the key Israeli demand. During the speech, he also rejected the idea of international peacekeepers in the Jordan Valley [...]
   “It’s time for the Palestinians stop denying history,” he said. “Just as Israel is prepared to recognize a Palestinian state, the Palestinians must be prepared to recognize a Jewish state.” Such a recognition would send a message to Palestinians, he said, “to abandon the possibility of flooding Israel with refugees or amputating parts of the Negev or Galilee.” “Recognize the Jewish state. No excuses, no delays. It’s time,” he urged, directly addressing Abbas. [...]
   “I am prepared to make a historic peace with our Palestinian neighbors, a peace that will end a century of conflict and bloodshed,” Netanyahu said to a round of applause. “Peace would be good for us and peace will be good for the Palestinians.” Thanking Kerry, who he characterized as “the secretary of state who never sleeps,” Netanyahu assured the audience that a peace deal would have to be “anchored in security arrangements and mutual recognition of two nation states.”
    The prime minister also made clear that he opposes any placement of long-term international peacekeeping forces who, he said, “keep the peace only when there is peace, but when they’re subjected to repeated attacks, those forces eventually go home.” He cited international forces in the Sinai, southern Lebanon and the Golan Heights, characterizing them as ineffective.

http://fr.news.yahoo.com/palestiniens-excluent-toute-prolongation-n%C3%A9gociations-isra%C3%ABl-144322820.html
   "Les Palestiniens ont exclu jeudi toute prolongation des négociations directes avec Israël au-delà de la date butoir de la fin avril au moment où le processus de paix initié par le secrétaire d'Etat américain John Kerry semble en grande difficulté. "Il ne sert à rien de prolonger les négociations, ne serait-ce que d'une seule heure, si Israël, représenté par son gouvernement actuel, continue à mépriser le droit international", a déclaré jeudi à l'AFP le négociateur en chef Saëb Erakat.
   "S'il y avait un partenaire sincère, nous n'aurions même pas eu besoin de neuf heures pour parvenir à un accord", a estimé M. Erakat, en réponse à des propos de M. Kerry, selon lesquels les discussions entre les deux parties se poursuivraient probablement au-delà des neuf mois impartis. "Mais il n'y a pas de partenaire en Israël qui soit engagé en faveur d'une paix véritable ou du droit international", a accusé le négociateur palestinien.
    Rappelant qu'il travaillait d'arrache-pied depuis la fin juillet 2013 à mettre sur pied un "accord-cadre" entre Israël et les Palestiniens, John Kerry a confié mercredi à quelques journalistes qu'il "pensait que personne ne s'inquiéterait s'il y avait encore neuf mois (...) pour boucler" le processus de paix israélo-palestinien. "Nous essayons d'obtenir une ossature, ce qui est une énorme tâche quand on sait que l'on s'est servi jusqu'ici de ces sept mois pour tenter de comprendre les positions des deux camps et pour pouvoir donner corps aux négociations finales", a souligné le secrétaire d'Etat, qui impose un black-out médiatique sur la teneur des tractations directes.
    Les dirigeants israéliens souhaitent publiquement une extension des négociations de paix --qui ont repris en juillet après une interruption de près de trois ans-- au-delà de l'échéance fixée au 29 avril. [...] A l'issue d'entretiens avec John Kerry la semaine dernière à Paris, le président palestinien Mahmoud Abbas a constaté l'échec "jusqu'à présent" de la diplomatie américaine pour définir un accord-cadre, qualifiant d'"inacceptables" les idées avancées par Washington. [...]

   "Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas left a two-day meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris last week fuming over Kerry’s proposals for a framework accord between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a Palestinian report. The top American diplomat reportedly offered for Abbas to form a Palestinian capital in Beit Hanina, not all of East Jerusalem, as the Palestinians have demanded.
    Kerry also suggested that Israel keep 10 settlement blocs as part of any territorial exchange, according to Al Quds, the most widely read Palestinian daily, on Wednesday. The Jordan Valley would not be part of a future Palestinian state, Palestinian sources told the paper, nor would there be an international force stationed there. And Kerry reportedly demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.
    The report, which received no official confirmation, added that Abbas exploded with rage over the US secretary’s proposals, and described them as “insanity.” The PA president threatened to “overturn tables” and to go back on the flexibility he had shown in order to facilitate US-led peace efforts, according to Al Quds. The paper suggested that Abbas’s subsequent invitation to meet US President Barack Obama at the White House was a form of damage control on the part of the Americans. A date has yet to be set for the visit. [...]"

"It is not detached from reality," the official said regarding the possibility that the yet unknown political heir to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will choose to return to an armed struggle should a peaceful solution failed to be reached. "If diplomatic negotiations will no bare fruit, and there will be no hope or prospect, it is possible Fatah will give up and return to its old ways," the senior official told Israel Radio.
    He noted that it was still too early to speak about a successor to Abbas, but stressed that the issue of appointing a deputy to the Palestinian president was a complex one, still in initial stages.

Europe

- Why Israel No Longer Trusts Europe, Clemens Wergin (foreign editor of the German newspaper group Die Welt) - "It is striking that Europe always comes to the Israelis with demands for concessions when it has itself such a bad track record at helping resolve problems in the region"; "It is always comfortable for Europeans to demand that Israel make hard decisions for peace. But Europe must now ask itself some hard questions, too".
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/01/opinion/why-israel-no-longer-trusts-europe.html?smid=tw-share
   "In February, the German politician Martin Schulz, the president of the European Parliament and the Social Democratic candidate for European Commission president in the coming European Union elections, traveled to Israel to address the Knesset. The idea of a German politician speaking before the Israeli Parliament is newsworthy enough. But it was what he said that caused an uproar: Mr. Schulz quoted a young Palestinian he met in the West Bank, who had asked him: “How can it be that an Israeli is allowed to use 70 liters of water a day but a Palestinian only 17?”
    Though Mr. Schulz didn’t elaborate, his implication was clear: Israel is purposely depriving Palestinians of their basic needs. But if his comments drew immediate condemnation in the Israeli press, they attracted little attention in Europe, perhaps because he was simply expressing what has come to be conventional wisdom there: Israel, many Europeans believe, is capable of almost anything in its treatment of Palestinians.
    The feelings of distrust are mutual: According to the Global Attitudes Project at the Pew Research Center, only 41 percent of Israelis had a favorable view of the European Union in 2013, down from 56 percent in 2009 (even the United States, which under President Obama has been more critical of Israel than under his predecessor, was viewed favorably by 83 percent of Israelis). Europe and Israel have hit rough spots before. But the rancor of the last few years is different — more vituperative, more widespread. If it remains, the hopes for a European role in a final peace deal will be dashed.
    European animosity toward Israel goes beyond the public. The European Union recently adopted guidelines forbidding its agencies to send money to Israeli companies and organizations in the West Bank; this and other similar steps apply a double standard it doesn’t use in other conflicts. And it seems aimed to increasingly push Israel into a corner. Israel, with its dogged commitment to expanding settlements, has brought some of that on itself. But Europe has also lost the measure of how one-sided its approach has become. European officials have a habit of aggrandizing obstacles for peace put up by Israel and minimizing those put up by the Palestinians.
    To understand Europe’s Middle East complex, one has to go back to the days when the Continent started to forge a common foreign policy. The first joint declaration in foreign affairs emerged in 1973 as a response to the Gulf states’ oil embargo against the West after the Yom Kippur War. Its aim was to appease Arab states and to lift the embargo’s pressure on European economies. The Middle East thus became the subject around which European diplomats continued to press a collective response. For decades they had no common foreign policy toward any region of the world but the Middle East.
    But instead of finding pragmatic solutions, they settled for airy joint resolutions; after having agreed on most subtle wordings, the diplomats in Brussels would fly home exhausted — until the next crisis demanded another declaration. As a result, European talk about the conflict has become terribly cliché-ridden. The “window of opportunity” is always closing fast. The “spiral of violence” is always in danger of spinning out of control. And the Palestinians are usually seen as victims reacting to Israeli measures, and not as authors of their own fate.
    To Europe, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the root of all problems facing the region — a view in no way altered by the Arab Human Development Reports published by the United Nations since 2002, which showed that Arab autocracies and cultural backwardness were the root of the region’s woes. Even after the outbreak of the Arab revolutions revealed that indeed corruption — and lack of dignity, democracy and opportunity — were to blame for the rage of the Arab street, Europe insisted on the centrality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
    It is striking that Europe always comes to the Israelis with demands for concessions when it has itself such a bad track record at helping resolve problems in the region. After Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, the European Union agreed to police the Rafah crossing in order to help prevent weapons smuggling. But it essentially abandoned the mission two years later. After the 2006 Lebanon war, European nations took over large parts of the United Nations mission to prevent weapons smuggling to Hezbollah. On their watch the terrorist group acquired tens of thousands of new and more sophisticated rockets. If the Europeans were honest with themselves, they would admit that some of their long-held assumptions didn’t pass the reality test. Like the idea that Israel should always swap land for peace. It has worked with states like Egypt. But it has failed whenever ideologically driven nonstate actors were involved.
    Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon resulted not in the disarming of Hezbollah, as many European experts had predicted, but in a heavily armed Iranian proxy sitting directly at Israel’s border. We’ve seen much the same in Gaza. Despite these discouraging experiences, every Israeli military action against radicals in Gaza or Lebanon is met with protests in Europe. Which doesn’t inspire confidence in Israeli leaders that Europe would accept Israel’s right to self-defense if a future Palestinian state in the West Bank became a similar hotbed of extremism and revisionist politics.
    It is always comfortable for Europeans to demand that Israel make hard decisions for peace. But Europe must now ask itself some hard questions, too. What guarantees could Europe offer Israel in return for a Palestinian state to protect it if the peace experiment failed and radicals took over the West Bank? Would Europe be ready to offer membership in NATO and the European Union if the Israelis asked for it? I am not sure there are any promising answers to these questions. But if all Europe has to offer Israel is criticism and disapproval, then it will be part of the problem, not the solution."

- Hamas: Recognizing Israel is a 'Death Sentence' to the PA (Arutz 7)
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/177787
   "Lawmakers from Hamas on Sunday warned Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas against recognizing Israel as part of the ongoing peace process. The lawmakers said that recognition of Israel as a Jewish state would be a “death sentence” against the PA.
    Ibrahim Dahbour, one of Hamas’s representative in the Palestinian Legislative Council, warned Abbas against giving up any of the "fundamental principles of the Palestinian people" in the negotiations with Israel, in particular with regards to the recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Speaking with the PA-based Quds Press news agency, Dahbour said that the very debate regarding Israel as a Jewish state has dangerous consequences. He added that if Israel achieves international recognition as a Jewish state, such a move will bring the Palestinian Arabs to a point of no return and will result in the elimination of the so-called “right of return”, the expulsion of “Palestinian citizens of Israel” and any other non-Jewish residents of Israel, and in the bringing of the world's Jews to Israel.
    Samira Halaiqa, another Hamas parliamentarian, went even further and said that the “resistance” against Israel in order to thwart peace talks will continue. Halaiqa said that neither the PLO’s recognition of Israel as part of the 1993 Oslo Accords nor a possible recognition of Israel by Abbas would result in the end of the “resistance”. [...]"

- US: Peace framework will recognize Israel as Jewish state, Elie Leshem (Times of Israel) - Ambassadeur américain : “in the end, we’ll need to know that this is the end of the conflict, and that’s one way of verifying that… that everyone in the region and all of [Israel’s] neighbors will accept that there is a nation state of the Jewish people here, in the Jewish homeland.”
http://www.timesofisrael.com/us-peace-framework-will-recognize-israel-as-jewish-state/
   "US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro asserted on Friday that the framework peace deal currently being negotiated by US Secretary of State of John Kerry will include Palestinian recognition of Israel as “the nation state of the Jewish people.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recognize Israel’s Jewishness has been a sticking point in negotiations, with the Palestinians refusing to accede to a demand that would tacitly do away with Palestinian hopes for a “right of return” for refugees and their descendants.
   “It’s too early to know what compromises and concessions both sides will make,” Shapiro told Israel Radio on Friday morning. “But we do believe… that Israel deserves recognition as a Jewish state. That has always been US policy — that Israel is a Jewish state and should remain a Jewish state. That will be one of the elements of the framework we’re working on.” Leading Palestinians made clear their opposition to the demand this week, insisting that by introducing the Jewish factor, Israel was drawing a red line that could doom negotiations. [...]
    But Shapiro sounded confident that, in a final-status agreement, the Palestinians — indeed, the entire Arab world — would have to accept that Israel is a Jewish state and will remain as such. “I assume that under the framework that we’re currently preparing — that we’ll see that recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, as the nation state of the Jewish people” he said. “And in the end, we’ll need to know that this is the end of the conflict, and that’s one way of verifying that… that everyone in the region and all of [Israel’s] neighbors will accept that there is a nation state of the Jewish people here, in the Jewish homeland.”
    When invoking “the end of the conflict,” Shapiro was likely implying that by recognizing Israel as a Jewish state under a permanent peace deal, the Palestinians would be forfeiting any future demand for a right of return. [...]"

http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/Report-Kerry-framework-proposal-calls-for-Israeli-freeze-of-settlement-construction-341875
   "Aides to US Secretary of State John Kerry will request that the Israeli government freeze all construction in settlements outside of the large blocs of communities that Israel intends to keep in any final-status deal with the Palestinians, Army Radio reported. Kerry's aides say the request will be an integral part of the framework agreement that will allow for the negotiations to continue past the originally allotted nine months, according to Army Radio.
    Officials in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office have yet to officially respond to the request, Army Radio reported. While there has been no official response from Jerusalem, government officials have resigned themselves to the fact that Israeli gestures are necessary in order to entice Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas back to the negotiating table. According to Army Radio, Israel would declare an "unofficial" freeze  to all construction in the isolated Jewish settlements that lie outside of the major population centers under Israeli control in the West Bank.
    While an official freeze on construction requires a government edict, an unofficial freeze could be implemented by placing bureaucratic obstacles and red tape on building plans or having the defense minister order the Civil Administration, which is charged with approving construction plans in the territories, to cease deliberating on such plans. In addition, the interior minister could instruct the Jerusalem Building and Planning Council to halt all plans in sensitive areas of the city, and the prime minister could order the housing minister to cease publishing tenders. An unofficial freeze would enable government officials to deny its existence while in practice halting all construction, according to Army Radio."

   "Israelis living beyond the Green Line might not have to leave their homes following a peace agreement with the Palestinians, US Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview broadcast on Thursday. Asked on Channel 2’s Uvda program by Ilana Dayan what personal price the settlers will have to pay as part of any agreement, Kerry said, “I’m not at all certain they will have to leave their homes.” [...]
    Kerry, in the interview that seemed an effort to gain the trust of the Israeli public, said he had “no argument with anybody in Israel who wants to say to me that no deal is better than a bad deal. I say that too. I’m not in the business of trying to put together a bad deal.” He was working closely with both sides to meet their security and long-term goals, he said. “One thing I know a hundred thousand percent is that you can’t turn to the people of Israel with the prospect that what you are offering is going to turn the West Bank into Gaza. Israel’s security is iron clad as a priority in this issue. And I have said that from day one.”
    One thing different in the current effort from those that have come in the past is that “we are trying to put the end game on the table,” Kerry said. In the past, he said, “the absence of understanding of where you are really going, and how it is going to be done,” promoted insecurity and allowed “the radical or extremists or anybody to push the system and it [fell] apart.” [...]"

- Palestinians: Eight Million Refugees Must Return to Israel, Khaled Abu Toameh (Gatestone Institute) - "Many Palestinians said that Abbas was not authorized to make any concessions or speak on behalf of the refugees".
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4184/palestinian-refugees-return
   "Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is facing criticism from Palestinian refugees for saying that he does not want to "flood" Israel with millions of refugees. Abbas made his statement during a meeting in his Ramallah office earlier this week with dozens of Israeli students – the first direct encounter of its kind between the Palestinian Authority president and Israeli youths. Abbas has also come under criticism for breaking a ban by Palestinian activists on meetings with Israelis. The ban has been imposed over the past few years by "anti-normalization" activists who oppose such meetings between Israelis and Palestinians.
    Abbas's controversial remarks about the "right of return" highlight the difficulties facing U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in his efforts to achieve a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinian reactions to Abbas's remarks show that the issue of the refugees remains a sensitive and explosive one that could torpedo any agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians.
    Abbas told the Israeli students that the claim that he was seeking to "flood" Israel with five million refugees was nonsense. "There is propaganda saying that Abu Mazen [Abbas] wants the return of five million refugees to destroy the state of Israel," he said. "This is not true at all. All what we said was: Let's place the issue of the refugees on the table because it's a sensitive case which needs to be solved in order to end the conflict and so that the refugees would be satisfied with a peace agreement. But we are not seeking to drown Israel with millions in order to change its demography. This is nonsense."
    Representatives of Palestinian refugees rushed to issue condemnations of Abbas, accusing him of relinquishing the "right of return" of millions of Palestinians to their former villages and towns inside Israel. In Lebanon, where some 450,000 Palestinians live in several refugee camps and are exposed to Apartheid Laws that deny them access to many jobs and economic, health and educations services, Abbas's comments were received with deep resentment. During an emergency meeting in one of the refugee camps in Lebanon, Abbas was accused of "abandoning the right of return and harming Palestinian rights." The refugees said they were particularly enraged over the fact that protest letters they sent to the Palestinian Authority embassy in Beirut were totally ignored.
    Dr. Esam Udwan, an expert on refugee affairs, was quoted as saying that "Abbas's statements have caused damage to Palestinian rights." Accusing Abbas of providing Israel with concessions in return for nothing, Udwan said, "These remarks reflect Abbas's conviction that the issue of the refugees is ineffective and they have no right to return because this would mean drowning Israel. This is completely unacceptable. Who said that there are only five million refugees? The real number is eight million. Abbas mentioned the five million who are registered with UNRWA and benefit from its services. But there are millions of others who do not receive services from UNRWA and are not registered with it. This does not mean that they should be denied the right of return."
    Ali Huwaidi, another expert on refugee affairs, also lashed out at Abbas: "Regardless of Abbas's statements, the right of return is guaranteed, individually and collectively, through UN resolutions. The refugees will not give up their right no matter where they are living today. Abbas is worried about flooding Israel with five million refugees while Israel has brought one million people from the former Soviet Union and no one complained about this. Our refugees will not accept any alternative to their right to return to their homeland and we do not care what Abbas's position is." Many Palestinians said that Abbas was not authorized to make any concessions or speak on behalf of the refugees.
    This was not the first time that Abbas had come under attack on the issue of the refugees. Last year, Abbas told an Israeli TV station that he personally does not want to return to his former hometown of Safed in northern Israel. That comment too was seen by his critics as a sign that he was wiling to "surrender" the "right of return" for millions of refugees. [...]
    The reactions to Abbas's statements concerning the issue of the refugees show that any agreement that Abbas reaches with Israel under U.S. pressure will not signal the end of the conflict with Israel. They also show that millions of Palestinians continue to believe that one day they will be allowed to move to Israel, regardless of whether a Palestinian state is established in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem or not."
