At a meeting with Israeli ambassadors to European Union countries, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that neither the Palestinian Authority (PA), nor the Arab countries, were interested in pursuing peace with Israel. The PA's plan to seek recognition of a Palestinian state at the UN, he said, was a clear indication that the PA was not interested in advancing talks with Israel, since it was a gross violation of agreements the PA has signed with Israel…
Lieberman told the diplomats that throughout the four years that the current government has served, Israel has numerous times sought to restart talks with the PA - always to be put off, delayed, dodged, or outright rejected. And not only did the PA do everything it could to avoid talks - it arrogantly blamed the fact that no talks were taking place on Israel. “Their entire plan is to upset Israel's standing in the international community,” Lieberman said.
Lieberman also discussed the renewed rocket terror attacks on southern Israel by Gaza Arab terrorists, and especially the fact that PA chief Mahmoud Abbas has not bothered to condemn the attacks, much less to take steps to end the rocket fire from territory of which he is supposed to be in charge. “This again poses the question who Abbas even represents among Palestinians, what his responsibility is for what has been happening, and what our agreements with him are worth altogether,” Lieberman said. (The same game was played by Arafat, but the Israeli government is still unwilling to end the stupid game!)
Bigots did not Call for Restraint
when 100s of Rockets were Fired from Gaza
World leaders have urged Israel to show restraint after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to "expand" military operations in the Gaza Strip following its assassination of a Hamas leader. US President Barack Obama and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon both telephoned Mr Netanyahu ahead of an urgent UN Security Council meeting on the deteriorating situation.
The Israeli trio (Netanyahu, Barak and Lieberman) are reexamining their plan to launch a ground offensive now in view of strong pressure from US President Barack Obama - although he solidly supported the Israeli operation until now. (Obama’s talk is cheap - backstabbing is heavy!)
Enough - Remove Enemy Population from Gaza!
Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel cannot tolerate continued rocket attacks against its citizens. Defence Minister Ehud Barak said the operation in Gaza was far from over. He said airstrikes had already inflicted heavy damage, taking out most of Hamas' long-range missile capabilities.
50 rockets were fired from Gaza on Wednesday night, 14 Nov - of which Iron Dome intercepted 17 - after an Israeli air assault killed the Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari and destroyed dozens of missile sites. The rockets were fired at Beersheba, Ashdod and Eshkol.
Tel Aviv commuters run for shelter as an air raid siren sounds. Earlier another rocket struck close to the city of Rishon Lezion, 22 miles north of Gaza. The Israeli military said nearly 150 rockets were fired from Gaza on Thursday, one of which struck a block of flats, killing three residents and wounding three children. (During this year, before Israel began its offensive, over 800 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza)
According to statistics published by the IDF on Saturday night as the fourth day of Operation Pillar of Defense ended, 824 rockets have been fired at Israel, 243 of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system. 100 of those rockets have landed in Gaza. At the same time, IAF aircraft, using precise intelligence, have succeeded in hitting no less than 900 terrorist targets in the four days of the operation.

Quote of the Week:
“The state’s legal establishment must understand that democracy is not just a mechanism to advance the establishment of a Palestinian state and the destruction of settlements in Judea and Samaria. The public may choose a new path - and reject the path of Disengagement and Oslo - as it chose in the last elections, when the Likud was elected to lead the state.” - Daniel Tauber, Likud Anglos Executive Director - New path must be set and achived. Israel has no other option!

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threw cold water on President Barack Obama’s election victory, answering the president with a direct “no” after Obama told him his administration is opposed to the PA’s unilateral move for recognition by the United Nations General Assembly.
Abbas’ blunt “no” underscored the new Middle East reality, where the PA chief feels he can snub the United States and bank on international opposition to the State of Israel’s position for defensible borders, said analysts.
"There was a long telephone conversation between president Mahmud Abbas and Barack Obama," the Palestinian leader's spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina told AFP. "Obama expressed the opposition of the United States to the decision to go to the UN General Assembly."
Abbas, who immediately launched a diplomatic war against Israel after taking over from Yasser Arafat following his death, turned Israel into the villain.
“Abbas cited the reasons and motives for the Palestinian decision to seek non-member statehood as continued Israeli settlement activity and Israeli aggression against citizens and property," Abu Rudeina said.
The White House later issued a conciliatory statement, stating that the president "reiterated the United States' opposition to unilateral efforts at the United Nations" in the call to Abbas and "reaffirmed his commitment to Middle East peace and his strong support for direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians with the objective of two states living side by side in peace and security.”
Abbas has stated that winning Non-Member Observer status from the United Nations, based on the PA’s own territorial and political demands, will pave the wavy for “negotiations,” meaning Israel’s acceptance of his terms… (Only Israel is not allowed to snub/offend anyone! Israel needs to stop endless and useless negotiations with terrorists and begin implementing the Jewish national agenda - see the Sinai Option!)
