Incontro con l’autore del libro «Sconfiggere Hitler», appena pubblicato da Neri Pozza. Ha aderito al «partito degli scrittori» che nascerà a il 6 dicembre. «Ho notato – dice – una somiglianza fra quanto sta accadendo in Israele e ciò che avvenne in Germania fra Bismark e la fine della Repubblica di Weimar: allora come oggi si oscilla fra trauma e speranza» Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Barak Ovadya, Candidate

THE ISRAELI OBAMA. What will he look like, the Israeli counterpart of Barack Obama? What will be his attributes?

That is a tantalizing question. It goes without saying that one cannot construct a human being according to a recipe, like a cake from a cook book. But one can, at least, consider a few of the desired traits. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

The Arab Vote Against Hamas

Posted by Alessandro Accorsi su 29 novembre, 2008

By Tariq Alhomayed
The decision of Arab foreign ministers to ask Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to “continue assuming responsibility as the head of the Palestinian Authority” until national reconciliation is achieved and until a date for new presidential and legislative elections is set represents clear Arab support for Abbas.
It is evidence that the Arabs are voting against Hamas. This is an important and courageous decision that the Arabs have long avoided, which pushed Hamas to continue to divide the Palestinian rank and weaken it in the confrontation against Israel.
During his speech that he delivered at the Arab Foreign Ministers Meeting in Cairo, Saudi Prince Saud al Faisal said, “If our fear of deepening the Palestinian rift prevents casting accusations against one of the two disputing political parties, then we must remind them of an irrefutable fact that they, and all of us, should always bear in mind; the sole beneficiary of conflict within the Palestinian leadership is Israel.”
However, the situation of the Palestinians now and the extent of interference from external forces, Iran and Syria in particular, in exploiting the Palestinian cause, make it necessary to call things what they really are. In the past, the Arabs failed to pin the blame on Fatah and today they will fail if they are not firm enough in criticizing Hamas.
It was also important to confront some of the procrastinating Arab positions towards the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian rift. Dr Saeb Erakat did well to confront requests to invite Hamas to [future] Arab Foreign Ministers’ meetings.
Therefore, the Arab backing of Mahmoud Abbas means that the ministers have taken a step in the right direction in making their position clear and holding Hamas responsible, as we cannot shed crocodile tears over Gaza whilst forgetting who is causing its suffering.
Hamas is always twisting the facts and blaming the Arabs for its own mistakes, therefore it is important for Arabs to call things by what they really are so that every party takes responsibility in face of public opinion.
The decision of the ministers to support Abbas, from now on, should be reflected in important Arab positions to call things by what they really are and to block smear campaigns. In this regard, real positions would be revealed to public opinion.
The simplest example of this is Hamas’ comments in response to the Arab decision [to support Abbas]. Hamas stated that the decision was illegitimate but the real question for Hamas is: is the armed occupation of Gaza legitimate?
Without doubt, Hamas’ distortions will not stop but they are being revealed everyday. It considered the decision to extend Abbas’ term the weakening of motivation for reconciliation “by the other side, just as it deepens the rift.”
This statement can be considered a clear example of Hamas’ blunders and lack of commitment as Hamas has shown no interest in Palestinian national reconciliation except in its verbal statements.
The importance of the Arab foreign ministers lending their support to Mahmoud Abbas is apparent through its keenness to protect the Palestinian cause from Hamas’ absurdity and demonstrates an Arab position that reflects awareness of the importance of timing and of the international situation.
It is odd that the Iranians and Syrians are speaking positively about the [upcoming] Obama period and that their allies in Hezbollah are silent whilst Hamas pushes to mix up the playing cards. It is as if Damascus and Tehran are sending a message to Washington that reads: Hamas is a card in the pocket…just talk to us and we will make it see reason!

“Partez Monsieur Olmert!”

Posted by alicemarziali su 28 novembre, 2008

Guerre ou Paix – Le Monde

La sentence n’a pas tardé. Quelques heures après que soit connue l’intention du procureur général israélien, Menahem Mazouz, d’inculper prochainement le premier ministre démissionnaire, Ehoud Olmert, dans une affaire de corruption, la responsable du parti Kadima, Tzipi Livni, par ailleurs ministre des affaires étrangères, a pressé son ancien mentor, jeudi 27 novembre, de quitter ses fonctions. Immédiatement.

M. Olmert, il est vrai, pose deux sortes de problèmes à Mme Livni. En premier lieu, son maintien au pouvoir, même par intérim, l’embarrasse alors que la ministre compte faire de la lutte contre la corruption l’un de ses thèmes de campagne pour les élections anticipées du 10 février.

Ensuite, Mme Livni, qui se flatte de camper sur des positions très fermes dans ses discussions avec les Palestiniens, commence sans doute à être exaspérée par les déclarations tonitruantes de l’ancien maire de Jérusalem sur la question israélo-palestinienne. Les dernières remontent au 10 novembre, jour de commémoration de l’assassinat de Yitzhak Rabin, en 1995, à une date où M. Olmert défendait encore la perspective d’un Grand Israël.

Il n’en est plus question aujourd’hui. Bien au contraire.

“Le gouvernement, tout gouvernement, se devra de dire la vérité, a assuré M. Olmert. Cette vérité nous forcera à nous séparer de beaucoup de parcelles de la patrie, en Judée et en Samarie (Cisjordanie), à Jérusalem, et sur le plateau (syrien) du Golan. Il y a eu des moments où nous avons voulu apposer le sceau de notre présence sur chaque pouce de terre. J’en étais, mais nous nous sommes trompés.”

Des propos qui sentent le soufre. Surtout à propos de Jérusalem, “capitale indivisible d’Israël” selon le credo officiel. Surtout à la veille d’une campagne électorale (comme l’a bien noté dans le Haaretz le correspondant diplomatique Aluf Benn), pendant laquelle Benyamin Nétanyahou, chef du Likoud, s’efforcera très probablement de présenter ces propos, en dépit des dénégations de Mme Livni, comme la doxa, le programme caché de Kadima.

Las promesas no cumplidas de Annapolis.

Posted by valentinabalzati su 27 novembre, 2008

El Pais

La conferencia de paz celebrada en EE UU concluyó con el compromiso de crear un Estado palestino libre antes de 2009.- Un año después, las partes coinciden en la escasez de avances.

Pocos creyeron al presidente de EE UU, George W. Bush, cuando anunció el inicio de las negociaciones para la creación de un Estado palestino viable antes de enero de 2009. La declaración conjunta acordada en Annapolis el 27 de noviembre de 2007 entre el entonces primer ministro israelí, Ehud Olmert, y el líder de la Autoridad Palestina, Mahmud Abbas, fue acogida con gran escepticismo por la opinión pública mundial, que no dio credibilidad a un proceso que no contaba con el apoyo de Hamás. Un año después, ambas partes coinciden en que el compromiso de iniciar los contactos “para concluir un tratado de paz” que resolviera “todos los temas pendientes” ha dado pocos resultados.

La paix avec les Palestiniens selon “Bibi” Nétanyahou

Posted by alicemarziali su 26 novembre, 2008

http://israelpalestine.blog.lemonde.fr/ Le Monde

26 novembre 2008

Premiers discours de campagne de Benyamin Nétanyahou donné favori par les sondages (à prendre avec les précautions d’usage) pour les élections anticipées israéliennes du 10 février.

Sur la question palestinienne,le chef du Likoud n’a pas la partie facile. Contempteur de la politique israélienne de retrait unilatéral mise en oeuvre à Gaza en 2005 (les faits lui ont plutôt donné raison) et observateur critique du processus politique israélo-palestinien relancé à Annapolis en 2007, Benyamin Nétanyahou peut difficilement remettre en cause ce cadre de négociations dans la perspective d’un éventuel retour au pouvoir (surtout avec la nouvelle administration démocrate américaine.) Premier ministre en 1996, il avait déjà dû s’accommoder du processus d’Oslo auquel il s’était opposé de manière particulièrement virulente lorsqu’il était dans l’opposition.

Pace in Medio Oriente: svolta clamorosa o finzione?

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 26 novembre, 2008

Nuovi e insoliti segnali fanno pensare che il Medio Oriente è forse prossimo a svolte clamorose verso una soluzione del conflitto israelo-palestinese e una pace definitiva tra Israele e i paesi arabi (compresa la Siria), che a sua volta potrebbe stabilizzare la regione e favorire un «dialogo» con l’Iran. Ma la prudenza è d’obbligo. Potrebbe anche trattarsi di manovre ingannevoli. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

The emptiness of Netanyahu’s ‘economic peace’ plan

Posted by Alessandro Accorsi su 26 novembre, 2008

Yossi Alpher

The Daily Star Lebanon

Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is “spot on” in some of his criticism of the peace process. Annapolis was indeed stillborn, without a chance of success. The most thorny final-status issues remain completely unresolved after a year of negotiating. Hamas is a major impediment to progress. And the Iranian threat is more strategically urgent than the Israeli-Palestinian process. Given Netanyahu’s lead in the polls, these positions are significant. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Abbas threatens early elections

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 23 novembre, 2008

BBC NEWS

23/11/2008

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said he will call elections if he fails to make progress in reconciliation talks with his Hamas rivals this year.

He said he might issue a decree early in 2009 for presidential and parliamentary polls, but gave no date. His term in office ends on 9 January.

But analysts say he is unlikely to call the polls, given the strength of Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.

Hamas quickly rejected the proposal, saying the idea was “unconstitutional”. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Amos Oz says new leftist party will replace Labor

Posted by giacomofinzi su 16 novembre, 2008

da: Haaretz  http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1037560.html

“I hope the expanded leftist movement will become a replacement for the Labor Party,” author Amos Oz told Haaretz on Saturday. “The Labor Party has finished its historic role, it isn’t putting forward a national agenda and it joins any coalition,” Oz said. He was among 30 intellectuals and public figures who attended the Tel Aviv press conference Friday at which the official launch of a new left-wing party modeled after Meretz was announced. 
Referring to the refusal by Labor Party chairman Ehud Barak to commit to not joining a coalition headed by Likud chairman Benjamin Netanyahu, Oz said “For many years there has been a large gap between what the Labor Party says and what it does.” He added that he hoped the new bloc’s potential can be translated into a Knesset list consisting of Meretz members, ex-Laborites, environmentalists, supporters of Dov Khenin in the just-finished Tel Aviv mayoral elections, Reform Jews and Arabs. 
The new party has apparently not yet carried out a poll to judge the degree of public support it can expect. “I always think in double-digit numbers,” Meretz chairman Haim Oron said Friday. The new party doesn’t yet have a new name. In light of the desire of new members for “rebranding,” alternatives, the “Meretz” name will be evaluated in the coming days. 

 

“The name must be changed because we aren’t joining Meretz, we are creating a center-left bloc,” Kucik said. “Our positions are close to those of Meretz but in order to break the glass ceiling we first need to change the name.”  Leggi il seguito di questo post »
