WASHINGTON — President Obama called on Israelis and Palestinians on Thursday to move swiftly toward peace talks, as his administration embarked on its first public dispute with Israel.

Speaking to reporters at the White House after talks with the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, Mr. Obama said that the absence of peace between Israelis and Palestinians was clogging up other critical issues in the Middle East. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israel Removes Illegal Settler Outpost in West Bank

JERUSALEM — Israeli police and security forces on Thursday dismantled a small Jewish outpost in the West Bank in what many here saw as a gesture by Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to President Obama three days after their meeting in Washington.

No arrests were made at the illegal outpost, where at least four families lived in a couple of concrete structures and several temporary shacks. Micky Rosenfeld, a police spokesman, said the timing of the action was not significant. Another small West Bank outpost was removed about two months ago, he said.

But it was the first time Israel’s new right-leaning government had removed a settlement, and settler leaders and others saw it as a political message.

“It seems that this was done in order to throw a bone to the United States president,” Avi Roeh, the chairman of the local settler council, told Israel Radio.

Pressing for a renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the Obama administration has made clear that it expects Israel to carry out a total settlement freeze and remove illegal outposts in the West Bank, according to Israel’s commitments under a 2003 peace plan known as the road map.

The outpost, Maoz Esther, which is in the Ramallah region. Hours after it was dismantled, a resident, Daniel Landesberg, 19, said he had already set about rebuilding his demolished home.

Speaking by telephone, he said the move was “a signal” from Mr. Netanyahu to Mr. Obama that Israel would do whatever he asked.

Israeli government officials say they want to remove the outposts by agreement with the settlers in order to avoid confrontation. Long months of talks under the previous government, however, did not yield tangible results.

Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak, met with settler leaders on Wednesday and told them that the illegal outposts were damaging Israel’s international relations and their own cause. He said the outposts would be removed “if not through dialogue, then through swift and aggressive enforcement.”

On Thursday, Mr. Barak said the evacuation of Maoz Esther was “not connected with the Americans or American pressure,” and that it was carried out according to routine orders. More than a hundred outposts are dotted around the West Bank, alongside dozens of established Jewish settlements authorized by Israel but widely considered abroad a violation of international law.

Yariv Oppenheimer of Peace Now, an Israeli advocacy group that opposes Jewish settlement in the West Bank, said that the outpost evacuated on Thursday was not a significant one, and that the action was “more about P.R.” after the Washington meeting. Mr. Oppenheimer added that the same outpost has been evacuated at least twice before.

Rina Castelnuovo contributed reporting from Maoz Esther, West Bank.

President Obama tells Israel: stop expanding settlements

President Obama yesterday embarked on his most daunting diplomatic challenge yet by telling Israel to take “difficult steps” towards peace, allow a Palestinian state and halt settlement expansion on occupied land.

His talks with Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s hardline Prime Minister, marked the start of an intensive focus on the Middle East. Mr Obama hopes to re-start a peace process that has stalled under a succession of US presidents. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

As President Obama was telling Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, this week that all Jewish settlement activity in the West Bank must stop, in the huge settlement of Kiryat Arba on the edge of Hebron, one of the founders of the settler movement was explaining why that will not happen.

Will Barack Obama risk getting tough with Binyamin Netanyahu?

Posted by claudiacampli su 21 maggio, 2009

Times

Bronwen Maddox, Chief Foreign Commentator

How tough could President Obama be on Israel if he wanted? And how tough is he likely to be? He could make life expensive and uncomfortable for Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s new Prime Minister. That could have repercussions for him, from American public anger and opposition in Congress — as George Bush senior and Jimmy Carter, two presidents who took a tougher line, could warn him.

Obama and Netanyahu differ in talks

AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONAL

Israel’s prime minister has refused to commit to an independent Palestinian state during talks with Barack Obama, the US president, at the White House.

Binyamin Netanyahu told Obama that he wanted the Palestinians to govern themselves, but steered clear of explicitly endorsing the two-state solution set out in the so-called “road map”.

He said that Israel was “ready” to resume negotiations with the Palestinians, which stalled during the 22-day offensive in the Gaza Strip, but he attached conditions to any new process. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Netanyhau a Obama: «No a uno stato palestinese»

Posted by alicemarziali su 19 maggio, 2009

IL SOLE 24 ORE

Gli Stati Uniti ribadiscono che per la pace in Medio Oriente serve la soluzione due Stati due popoli, ma Israele risponde di non prende in considerazione lo spazio politico e territoriale per la nascita di uno Stato palestinese. Il premier dello Stato ebraico Benjamin Netanyahu si è detto invece favorevole a una forma di autogoverno dei palestinesi. E’ quanto emerge dall’incontro fra il presidente degli Stati Uniti, Barack Obama, con il premier israeliano. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Face à Nétanyahou, Obama répète son soutien à la création d’un Etat palestinien

Posted by alicemarziali su 19 maggio, 2009

LE MONDESans surprise, Barack Obama a réaffirmé, lundi 18 mai, son soutien à la création d’un Etat palestinien à l’issue d’un entretien avec le premier ministre israélien, Benyamin Nétanyahou. “Nous avons parlé des moyens de relancer des négociations sérieuses sur les questions d’Israël et des Palestiniens”, a dit le président américain, ajoutant que la “solution à deux Etats” servait les intérêts des deux camps.

Obama s’exprimait à l’issue d’un entretien à la Maison Blanche avec Nétanyahou, qui effectuait son premier déplacement à Washington depuis son retour à la tête du gouvernement israélien, le 31 mars. Il a également rappelé que la “feuille de route” de 2003 soutenue par les médiateurs internationaux fixait à Israël la nécessité de geler toute activité de colonisation dans les territoires palestiniens. Nétanyahou, dont la coalition intègre des partis hostiles à cette solution à deux Etats, a estimé pour sa part que les Palestiniens devaient s’administrer eux-mêmes mais n’a fait nulle mention d’un Etat palestinien proprement dit. “Nous ne voulons pas gouverner les Palestiniens. Nous voulons qu’ils se gouvernent eux-mêmes”, a-t-il dit. L’objectif de créer un Etat palestinien avait été réaffirmé fin 2007 à Annapolis par le prédécesseur de Nétanyahou, Ehoud Olmert, et le président de l’Autorité palestinienne, Mahmoud Abbas, réunis dans le Maryland par George Bush.
