Israel moves to fifth election in three years On June 20th Israel’s weakened coalition government decided to dissolve parliament and call new elections.  The vote, expected later this year, could bring about the return of a nationalist religious government led by former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or another prolonged period of political gridlock.  In a nationally televised news...

Israeli PM rules out a Palestinian State Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that for now, he has ruled out a meeting with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and the creation of a Palestinian state.  “I oppose a Palestinian state, and I think it would be a grave mistake to import the failed Gaza model of Hamas, which shoots rockets at us and turn the entire West Bank into...

Israel, understandably, does not want to be wiped out so defends itself with Iron Dome defence system and with counter attacks on Hamas when they...

‘Why doesn’t Israel agree to a Palestinian State?’

The Palestinians could have had a state in 2000 when Israeli PM Barak offered Yasser Arafat almost all of what he wanted, except for the Jewish quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. Arafat said ‘Whoever would give away one centimetre of Jerusalem is not an Arab and not a Muslim.’ In 2008 Israeli PM Ehud Olmert offered 94% of the West Bank with some compensating Arab areas of Israel. Each...
