Netanyahu’s Double Talk: Always Negotiating But Never Fully Negotiating

One does not need to be an astute politician or political guru to understand Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lack of desire for concluding a final peace treaty with the Palestinians. Speaking to his Likud Party, Netanyahu made it perfectly clear that he really does not want peace. But if he is forced to negotiate, […]

Yalla Peace: Israel – Lonely, oh so (increasingly) lonely

Israel’s standing in int’l community continues to falter as country becomes more isolated. But things could easily change with help of its only real reliable ally, the US. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s refusal to freeze settlement expansion during the direct peace talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has reinforced a reversal of Israel’s relations […]

Hatred, Superiority And The Israeli Mindset

Hatred and a feeling of superiority are two core elements that prevent a solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. After 62 years of mutually inflicted atrocities against each other, the Israelis and Palestinians are seething with hatred. During these decades of authoritative rule over the Palestinians, Israelis have acquired a feeling of superiority. Getting beyond these […]

Can I Compare the Netanyahu Government to Hitler’s Regime?

I had a Facebook discussion with a Jewish Rabbi friend recently that begs the question of how far Israel’s national hysteria over the holocaust can give the right to Jews to compare one person to Hitler while denying that right to a gentile, like me, to compare a Jew to Hitler. The discussion started when […]

Capitulation To Prior Israeli Demands Leads To More Outrageous Demands

The audacity of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has emerged once more. This time he is seeking from the Palestinians recognition that Israel is a Jewish State in exchange for a two month settlement freeze. This is yet another way to make the Palestinians capitulate without any consideration from the Israelis. It seems that the […]

It May be Time for a Saudi Women’s Ministry

The talk of establishing a Ministry of Women’s Affairs in Saudi Arabia raises exciting possibilities for Saudi women, particularly businesswomen who need unfettered access to the international business community. Yet the proposal could lead to further marginalization of Saudi women. The idea of a governmental women’s department may sound quaint in the 21st century, but […]

How Palestinians and Israelis view peace

How Palestinians and Israelis view peace

US, September 27, (Pal Telegraph – Sameh.A.Habeeb) -All of us have followed the latest round of negotiations in the U.S. All of us are aspiring for a peace agreement that ends the conflict in the region. All of us affirm the issue of ending the conflict, but we have never asked how and what is […]

Palestinians must toughen up strategically to win freedom

Critics of the peace talks always ask the question, why should the Palestinian people who have lost so much give up the right to fight to get it back? The answer is simple. Do they want to fight to get it ALL back or do they want to fight for statehood? One is about a […]

Exclusive peace talks are easier to arrange, but is the result durable?

EAST MEREDITH, NY – The ongoing peace talks in the Middle East may bring an agreement. But more is needed – a lasting peace. In 1983, Lebanon signed a peace treaty with Israel under similar pressure-cooker conditions. During the civil war, the Lebanese were divided into two main political camps, one friendly to the West […]

The 50 cent solution: Solving the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy

I just returned from a television interview, the topic of which was again the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque.” It was not the best of interviews and I left unsure that I had conveyed my position. I was pressed on the need to compromise, “to show magnanimity towards the 70% of Americans who don’t want the […]

Yalla Peace: Palestinians have already recognized IsraelBy Ray Hanania

The acceptance of this country is not only inherent in the Palestinians’ repeated declarations but also in the fact that their leaders are sitting down and negotiating two states.In the reality of the Palestine-Israel conflict, the field where peace is played is the United States. That “stadium,” if you look at this like a sport, […]
