Lieberman needs to learn some basic facts before he speaks up
Eitan Haber

It is still unclear how long Avigdor Lieberman will remain in the post of foreign minister, yet it is already completely clear that he needs to get some “tutoring” so that he will become familiar with basic fact before he says more foolish things – because on Wednesday, at the reception in the Foreign Ministry, the honorable minister said some foolish things.

Mr. Lieberman showed contempt to the various Oslo Accords and claimed that Israel was popular in the world only after the Six-Day War victory and that “nothing was achieved by our concessions.” Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Giving serious ideas a bad name

Apr. 9, 2009 yossi alpher , THE JERUSALEM POST

Avigdor Lieberman, the new foreign minister, is perhaps most notorious for his policy demands regarding the Arab citizens of Israel. He wants Israeli Arabs to prove their loyalty to the state by taking oaths and performing national service, otherwise he would deny them citizenship. And he wants to move the Green Line – the pre-1967 border between Israel and the West Bank – so that Arab villages in the Triangle and Wadi Ara areas become part of Palestine and their residents become Palestinian instead of Israeli. At their core – if we could strip them of racist exaggeration – some of Lieberman’s ideas might be worth discussing. Indeed, at their core these policy proposals are not originally his.

Grappling with the ‘Problem of Lieberman’

Posted by valentinabalzati su 7 aprile, 2009

Omar Karmi,  The National

RAMALLAH, WEST BANK // While the new right-wing Israeli government undoubtedly poses a challenge to the international community, with its continued refusal to commit to the two-state solution, it is the presence of Avigdor Lieberman, the new foreign minister, that poses the most interesting questions.

The Region: A pretty solid team

Barry Rubin , THE JERUSALEM POST

In the Israeli political game, there are some things too important to play with. Has Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu safeguarded the country’s security and foreign relations while meeting party and coalition needs, and what is the likely result of this new government’s policies internationally?

Netanyahu had to put together a complex web of parties and personalities to get a Knesset majority. The result is a cabinet with more ministers than Jerusalem has rabbis. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

«No al piano di pace americano»

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 2 aprile, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – GERUSALEMME – Il Manifesto

ISRAELE

Non perde tempo Avigdor Lieberman, il leader dell’estrema destra israeliana nominato ministro degli esteri dal premier Netanyahu. Al suo primo giorno da capo della diplomazia, Lieberman ha escluso restituzioni territoriali ai palestinesi e ha messo in chiaro che Israele è vincolato solo al piano noto come Road map e non alle decisioni prese ad Annapolis (novembre 2007), il vertice mediorientale voluto dall’ex presidente Usa Bush con l’intenzione di rilanciare il negoziato israelo-palestinese.
«Sbaglia chi pensa che per mezzo di rinunce e concessioni Israele possa ottenere stima e pace. È vero il contrario, otterrà ancora guerre», ha tuonato Lieberman. Poi è passato all’attacco di Annapolis. «C’è un documento che ci obbliga e non è quello di Annapolis, che non ha validità» ha detto lasciando intendere che il governo si ritiene vincolato solo alla Road Map.

Livni condemns new Israel leaders

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 2 aprile, 2009

BBC NEWS

02 April 2009

Israel’s former chief peace negotiator says the way the new government is talking shows it will not be a partner for peace with the Palestinians.

Tzipi Livni’s criticism follows the rejection by her successor as foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, of recent US-backed efforts towards a peace deal.

“What happened is that the government announced that Israel is not relevant, is not a partner,” she said.

New PM Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged to seek peace but has not detailed how.

Ms Livni’s centrist Kadima party came narrowly ahead of Mr Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud in the February election, but he was asked to form a coalition as right-leaning parties predominated.

In his speech on Wednesday, at a foreign ministry handover attended by Ms Livni, the ultra-nationalist Mr Lieberman said Israel was not bound by the Annapolis accords agreed with the Palestinians and the Bush administration in November 2007.

He said the only legitimate document was another US-sponsored deal, the Road Map peace plan of 2003, because he said it was ratified by the Israeli government and the UN Security Council. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israeli FM questioned over fraud

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 2 aprile, 2009

BBC NEWS

02 April 2009

Israel’s new Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has been questioned by police for at least seven hours over corruption allegations.

Police said Mr Lieberman was questioned under caution on suspicion of “bribery, money-laundering and breach of trust” as part of an ongoing investigation.

Mr Lieberman was sworn in as foreign minister on Tuesday.

He has previously denied any wrong-doing and says the corruption probe against him is politically motivated.

Police confirmed that the interview had been scheduled in advance with Mr Lieberman.

Micky Rosenfeld, a police spokesman, said Mr Lieberman had been questioned over the long-standing investigation into his business dealings, the Associated Press reported.

The accusations are believed to relate to a company run by Mr Lieberman’s daughter.

A spokesman for Mr Lieberman said it was “the same investigation that has been ongoing for the past 13 years and which he has petitioned the courts to have speeded up.

“He co-operated fully with police investigators and answered all their questions and enjoyed drinking their coffee,” said the unnamed spokesman. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israeli Minister Questioned by Police

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 2 aprile, 2009

JERUSALEM — Avigdor Lieberman, the new foreign minister of Israel, was questioned under caution by the national fraud squad for more than seven hours on Thursday, according to a police spokesman, as part of a long-standing investigation into suspicions of bribery, money laundering and breach of trust.

Also Thursday, a Palestinian wielding a pickax struck and killed an Israeli boy, 13, and wounded another, 7, in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank before fleeing, witnesses and the Israeli authorities said.

Israeli officials said that the father of the wounded 7-year-old, Ofer Gamliel, is serving a 15-year prison term for planting a bomb outside a Palestinian girls’ school in Jerusalem in 2002. But there was no evidence that the attack on the boy was retaliatory.

Mr. Lieberman caused an uproar on Wednesday, his first day as foreign minister, declaring in a blunt speech that Israel was not obligated to continue an American-backed peace effort with the Palestinians, started at a conference in Annapolis, Md., in late 2007.

The police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said the interrogation did not come as a surprise, but was coordinated with the incoming minister several days in advance.

Mr. Lieberman is part of the new government led by Benjamin Netanyahu and his conservative Likud Party, which was sworn in late Tuesday. Mr. Lieberman leads the hawkish Yisrael Beiteinu party, an important partner in the governing coalition and the third largest party in Parliament. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

US stands by two-state solution

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 2 aprile, 2009

BBC NEWS

02 April 2009

The Obama administration has renewed Washington’s commitment to a two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

As a row raged over the new Israeli government’s stance, the White House said Barack Obama looked forward to working with Israel’s new leaders.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said the government will not be held by commitments made by its predecessors.

A US-hosted 2007 agreement had, he declared, “no validity”.

Each side had agreed at talks in Annapolis to further discussions aimed at creating an independent Palestinian state.

But Mr Lieberman, an ultra-nationalist, argues that the accord was never ratified either by the Israeli government or parliament.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the world should put pressure on the new Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

“We want to tell the world that this man doesn’t believe in peace and therefore we cannot deal with him,” he told an Arab summit in Qatar. Leggi il seguito di questo post »
