"Depuis le départ en retraite de l’excellent Dominique Bromberger, France Inter, le vaisseau amiral de la radio publique, avait laissé le monopole de l’analyse et du commentaire géopolitique à Bernard Guetta, fidèle au poste tous les matins de la semaine à 8h17. Lire le monde avec les lunettes de Guetta, c’est vivre chaque jour l’expérience du Candide de Voltaire soumis aux vaticinations du docteur Pangloss, l’incorrigible optimiste. Cet ancien trotskiste converti aux charmes discrets de la social-démocratie réussit presque à nous persuader, profitant de l’état comateux de notre réveil, que l’Union européenne est en marche vers un avenir radieux, que le monde arabe vogue hardiment vers la démocratie et la prospérité, et que Recep Tayyip Erdogan est un grand humaniste. Rien ne le fait dévier d’une ligne où sa déférence envers le Quai d’Orsay le dispute à un aveuglement volontaire devant tout événement ne cadrant pas avec sa vision du monde.
Fort heureusement, mais hélas à une heure de moindre écoute (18h15), il est maintenant possible de se faire une idée plus réaliste des événements mondiaux en écoutant la « chronique internationale » de Frédéric Encel. Alors que Guetta cherche à formater ses auditeurs à l’aune de ses convictions, Encel, pédagogue né, parvient en moins de trois minutes à nous fournir les deux ou trois clés permettant de bricoler soi-même son opinion sur des questions souvent complexes.
Des convictions, Encel n’en manque pourtant pas, sur l’Europe, le Proche Orient, la mondialisation. Mais il a l’honnêteté de ne pas utiliser son temps d’antenne pour les imposer à son public, et à les réserver à ceux qui voudront bien acheter ses livres. Le dernier paru, De quelques idées reçues sur le monde contemporain. Précis de géopolitique à l’usage de tous (éditions Autrement) pourra utilement soulager des auditeurs victimes d’une surdose de Guetta.
Dernière précision : l’arrivée d’Encel sur le service public de radiodiffusion fait écumer de rage Pascal Boniface, qui manie l’insulte avec la hargne du jaloux. Minable."

" Comme par accident, Chava Docks a laissé tomber son chandail vert. Sans un regard pour le garde palestinien posté quelques mètres plus loin, elle s'est alors penchée pour le ramasser et, en silence, s'est mise à prier. En se redressant, elle a esquissé un sourire et jeté un ultime coup d'œil à la façade somptueuse du Dôme du rocher. Puis, rejoignant le petit groupe de juifs religieux emmené ce matin-là, sous escorte policière israélienne, par le rabbin Chaïm Richman, elle a quitté l'esplanade des Mosquées pour regagner les ruelles de la vieille ville. «Il s'agit de ma septième visite en deux mois»
, détaille cette enseignante de 45 ans arrivée cet été des États-Unis, qui se décrit comme «très religieuse». «Je ne viens pas ici pour faire du mal mais pour sentir la présence de Dieu
, explique-t-elle. Comme les musulmans nous interdisent de prier, je suis obligée de le faire sans bouger les lèvres ni fermer les yeux. Évidemment, c'est énervant de devoir se cacher alors que nous vivons dans un État juif. Mais je suis certaine qu'avec le temps, les choses finiront par changer.»
Longtemps limité à quelques centaines d'irréductibles, le nombre de juifs messianiques qui entreprennent l'ascension du mont du Temple - appelé Haram al-Charif, ou Noble sanctuaire, par les musulmans - augmente constamment depuis le milieu des années 2000. Malgré l'opposition du grand rabbinat et les restrictions qui leur sont régulièrement imposées pour des motifs sécuritaires, 7724 visites ont été dénombrées en 2012 et plus de 6000 depuis le début 2013, dont plusieurs centaines par jour lors des récentes fêtes de Rosh ha-Shana et de Soukkot. Une affluence qui a brusquement fait monter la tension dans la vieille ville, fournissant le prétexte à des heurts répétés entre fidèles musulmans et policiers israéliens. [...]
Devant une telle poudrière, Benyamin Nétanyahou semble s'appliquer à éviter tout dérapage malgré la pression constante exercée par le courant sioniste religieux. Mais il ne parvient pas toujours à canaliser le petit groupe d'élus qui, à l'aile droite du Likoud, fait de cette dispute un fonds de commerce électoral. En septembre, le député Moshe Feiglin a annoncé son intention de contester l'autorité du Waqf devant les juridictions israéliennes, tandis que sa collègue Miri Regev appelait à la mise en place d'horaires séparés pour les juifs et les musulmans. Un tel partage des lieux de culte, font valoir ses partisans, fut longtemps la règle au tombeau des Patriarches d'Hébron. «Il est inenvisageable de l'appliquer à un lieu aussi saint que le Haram al-Charif»
, rétorque Bassam Jamal [un proche collaborateur du fonctionnaire jordanien chargé de l'administration de l'esplanade], qui voit dans cette initiative «une véritable déclaration de guerre»

I condemn it and I condemn those responsible for it. And those responsible for it are the Government of Israel and the prime minister of Israel.”
Rajoub went on to say that the Israeli government was responsible for the attack, in which nine-year-old girl Noam Glick was wounded, because it “incites and provokes by building settlements.”
He said that no decent person would agree with hurting a child, even if the child is in the wrong place like the “settlers”
are, as he put it. [...]"

who began his work in Hebron (the shooting of the soldier), passed through El-Bireh (the shooting of the girl), and - according to the Fatah Facebook page administrator - will continue in more places in the future: "The sniper of Palestine was here. He saluted Hebron, and rested in El-Bireh. He left the signature of [real] men in different parts of the homeland. He saluted and left, and moved on to a different place, with a new signature, as he tells the stories of those who love the homeland."

"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a Palestinian and American request to move up the expected release of Palestinian terrorists serving extended sentences in Israeli prisons, according to Haaretz.
Israel agreed in July to a four-stage release of 104 prisoners serving sentences for acts of terror committed before the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. The release is intended as a sign of good faith ahead of the renewed American-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. The first group of prisoners was released in August, just after talks between the two sides restarted. The second group of some 25 prisoners was slated to be released on October 29, but the Palestinian Authority asked Israel to release the prisoners in time for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha next week.
Netanyahu has faced pressure from hawkish ministers to delay or cancel the prisoner release in the wake of a series of violent incidents in the West Bank in recent weeks, including the killing of two IDF soldiers and the attack that wounded a nine-year-old girl in the settlement of Psagot last Saturday. Netanyahu has resisted the pressure from the right and plans to release the prisoners on schedule, the prime minister’s representative in the peace talks, attorney Yitzhak Molcho, assured Palestinian and American officials in recent days."

"Les Palestiniens doivent "reconnaître Israël comme Etat du peuple juif"
pour parvenir à une paix réelle, a déclaré dimanche soir le Premier ministre Benjamin Netanyahu. "Les Palestiniens doivent renoncer à leur refus de reconnaître le droit du peuple juif à son Etat national"
, a affirmé M. Netanyahu dans un discours sans concession à l'Université de Bar Ilan, près de Tel-Aviv, diffusé en direct sur le site officiel de l'établissement. Cette reconnaissance "constitue une condition nécessaire pour parvenir à un accord à la fin des négociations mais pas pour les lancer"
, a souligné le chef du gouvernement israélien. [...] "La racine du conflit c'est l'Etat juif"
, a insisté M. Netanyahu, en réfutant à nouveau l'argument selon lequel l'occupation et la colonisation israéliennes seraient à l'origine de la confrontation avec les Palestiniens. "Etes-vous prêts à reconnaître enfin l'Etat juif, l'Etat national du peuple juif"
, a-t-il lancé à l'adresse des dirigeants palestiniens, en déplorant que leur réponse jusqu'à présent ait été "non". "Tant que les Palestiniens n'auront pas reconnu ce droit, il n'y aura pas de paix réelle"
, a averti le Premier ministre devant l'auditoire de Bar Ilan. [...] il a également pressé les Palestiniens de "renoncer au droit de retour"
--pour les réfugiés-- et a réitéré la nécessité d'"arrangements de sécurité solides qui répondent aux besoins véritables de la sécurité d'Israël"

"There will be no peace with the Palestinians until they recognize the Jewish right to a homeland in Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday night at Bar-Ilan University. “A necessary condition to getting a true solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian] conflict was and remains clear as the sun: ending the refusal to recognize the right of the Jews to a homeland of their own in the land of their fathers,”
he said. “That is the most important key to solving the conflict.”
Netanyahu’s words came at the start of a conference marking 20 years since the founding of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, the site of Netanyahu’s famous “Bar-Ilan speech” from four years ago where he stated his willingness for a two-state solution.
Those who anticipated that he might use the same venue to again break new ground on the Palestinian issue were disappointed. Rather then present a “vision” speech of where he thought the negotiations with the Palestinians were headed, Netanyahu used the opportunity to emphasize that a Palestinian recognition of Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people was a necessary condition to any agreement. Since the first Arab attack on a home housing Jewish immigrants in Jaffa in 1921, the root of the conflict has not been the “occupation,” the “territories” or the settlements, but rather an Arab refusal to recognize the Jews’ right to a sovereign state in their historic homeland, he said.
Netanyahu said that the Arab revolutions of the past two years – which he called the most significant events in the region in 20 years – have laid to rest the “sacred cow”
that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the heart of the instability in the Middle East. Today, he said, it is “tough to say this without sounding absurd.”
It is now also the time, he said, to kill the “sacred cow”
that the “occupation” was the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Netanyahu spent a number of minutes during his address, which lasted some 30 minutes, discussing the links of the head of the Palestinian national movement in the pre-state days – Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini – with the Nazis. He reminded his listeners that the mufti visited Adolf Hitler in 1941 and promised his aid in getting Muslims to enlist in the SS in the Balkan states, and in the Nazi propaganda efforts. Husseini, he said, is still an admired figure among Palestinians. “That is what needs to be uprooted,”
Netanyahu brought up the mufti, however, more to refute comments Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made in New York two weeks ago than to slam the current Palestinian leadership. During a television interview, Rouhani acknowledged Nazi crimes against Jews, though he would not use the word “Holocaust.”
Netanyahu pointed out that Rouhani then quickly pointed out that it was forbidden to let the Zionists exploit the Nazi crimes to oppress the Palestinians. “Despite what Iranian representatives and others say,”
the prime minister said, “Zionist leaders did not use the Holocaust to destroy the Palestinian national movement. The opposite is true. The leader of the Palestinian movement at that time, Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, is the one who preached and worked to carry out the Holocaust to destroy the Zionist movement.” “And it almost worked,”
Netanyahu said. “European Jewry was destroyed, with the help of the mufti, but Zionism was not destroyed; Israel was established.”

- "It is a mistake to view Netanyahu’s Bar-Ilan 2 speech as indicating he is withdrawing, even in tone, from the peace talks". http://www.timesofisrael.com/the-nature-of-peacemaking-a-la-netanyahu/
"[...] Whether Netanyahu, deep in his heart, wants a peace deal with the Palestinians is a question beyond the ken of any commentator – and is perhaps unknown to Netanyahu himself. But his demand for Palestinian recognition of the Jewishness of Israel is no cheap tactic. It is the key to understanding his theory of the conflict, his view as to why the Oslo process 20 years ago failed, and his distrust of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the new round of talks. [...]
Netanyahu’s demand for recognition has its roots in this Israeli experience. The Palestinians cannot bring themselves to end the conflict, Netanyahu believes, because they cannot bring themselves to compromise with an enemy they view as completely evil. They have not yet shifted from perceiving their enemy as absolutely evil to perceiving him as possessing some justice on his side, however limited. Israel remains a categorical foe, and see Israelis as interlopers robbing another people of their national home.
Even Palestinian moderates share this basic view of Israel: it is an evil, but an evil too well entrenched to remove. Israel does not have even a modicum of justice on its side, only brute force, they believe. Thus, any Palestinian leader who seeks peace with Israel falls into the “Chamberlain trap,” finding himself undermined by the perception among his own people that he is accommodating evil rather than pursuing justice.
This analysis has become a key plank of Netanyahu’s policy toward the Palestinians, and has led to some of his most misunderstood speeches and demands. It is the reason he never fails to discuss the millennia-old Jewish attachment to the land of Israel in his speeches before a United Nations General Assembly that could care less. The Palestinians don’t need to become Zionists, Netanyahu believes, but they need to perceive that Jewish demands, too, are rooted in justice. Only then will their domestic constituencies and political systems be capable of engaging in peacemaking.
It is a mistake to view Netanyahu’s Bar-Ilan 2 speech as indicating he is withdrawing, even in tone, from the peace talks. In fact, the renewed urgency of his demand for recognition — which he believes to be critical to peacemaking — might suggest that the talks are, at long last, getting serious."
- Top PLO official dubs Netanyahu ‘number one extremist’, Elhanan Miller (Times of Israel)
- "Yasser Abed Rabbo says Palestinian leadership refuses to recognize ‘historic Palestine’ as ‘the homeland of the Jewish people’". http://www.timesofisrael.com/top-plo-official-dubs-netanyahu-number-one-extremist/
"A senior Palestinian official dubbed Benjamin Netanyahu “a racist”
and “the number one extremist in Israel,”
in light of the prime minister’s demand that Palestinians recognize Israel as the state of Jewish people. Speaking to Palestinian radio on Monday, Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary of the PLO and one of only two Palestinian officials authorized to comment on negotiations with Israel, predicted that the recently revived talks would collapse due to Netanyahu’s entrenched positions. “Netanyahu is the number one extremist in Israel. He hides behind [Economics Minister Naftali] Bennett and [former foreign minister Avigdor] Liberman. He is the symbol of extremism and resorts to a policy that seeks no solution,”
Abed Rabbo said, adding that the Palestinian leadership refuses to recognize “historic Palestine”
as the “homeland of the Jewish people.”
Abed Rabbo’s comments came in response to Netanyahu’s speech at Bar-Ilan University Sunday, in which he claimed that the core issue blocking a peaceful resolution to the conflict was the Palestinians’ refusal to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. [...] His comments were delivered the same day he met with a delegation of 11 Israeli MKs from the parliamentary caucus for the resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
In the course of that meeting, during which Abed Rabbo sat alongside Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the PA leadership ignored several requests from the visiting Labor MKs to respond to Netanyahu’s demand that Abbas recognize “Jewish Israel.”
Abbas told them to “leave the specific issues to the negotiations.”
A leaflet distributed to the MKs, “The Palestinian Position on Some Political Issues,”
did include a section on the Israeli demand for Palestinian recognition of a Jewish state. “Prime Minister Netanyahu introduced this demand only two years ago, in order to obstruct the peace process,” it stated.
The Israelis, Abed Rabbo claimed in remarks Monday, “always invent excuses — sometimes religious, sometimes historic and sometimes security-related — to avoid the main issue, which is the occupation of Palestinian land and how to end it.”
He said that Netanyahu strives to “cancel the historic presence of Palestinians on this land.”
