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.

Giving serious ideas a bad name

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 9 aprile, 2009

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

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.

They did not wait for Lieberman

Posted by alicemarziali su 1 aprile, 2009


The dismissal letters sent to 40 Arab employees of Israel Railways did not come as much of a surprise. For weeks now, the company had been seeking the legal phrasing that would allow the layoffs to proceed. First, it announced fresh demand for several roles, mostly having to do with security, such as watchmen for the train tracks. All candidates would have to have served in the Israel Defense Forces.

When it turned out this contravened the principle of equality in employment, the company tried to argue that the jobs in question had a specific security aspect. But a letter sent by Palestinian rights organization Adalah to the company’s management and the Transportation Ministry reveals that this argument is just as flawed, contravening the Basic Law on Freedom of Occupation.

Analysis: Israel’s new coalition

Posted by alicemarziali su 1 aprile, 2009


Israel’s centre-left Labor party has voted at a conference to join a coalition government led by Benyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister-designate and Likud leader.

The move provides the parliamentary majority necessary for government, which will include the nationalist Yisrael Beitenu, led by Avigdor Lieberman, the foreign minister-designate, and the orthodox Jewish Shas party.

Ehud Barak, the Labor leader, says that his party will provide balance to a right-wing government, while others argue that Labor itself is moving to the right.

Al Jazeera spoke to three political analysts to get their view on the new coalition and the prospects for the region. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Riots break out in Arab Israeli town during ultra-nationalist Jewish march

Posted by claudiacampli su 25 marzo, 2009


Rising ethnic tensions were underscored in Israel today as violent clashes took place in one of Israel’s biggest Arab towns between Jewish ultra-nationalists and local youths.

Police dispersed rock-throwing Arab residents of Umm el-Fahm with stun grenades and tear gas in the town, which is close to Israel’s boundary with the occupied West Bank.

The outbreak of violence took place following a march by right-wing Jews aiming to demonstrate sovereignty over the town, which has a strong Islamic movement.

Michael Ben-Ari, a lawmaker from the far-right National Union party who took part in the march, said: “I want to say that if we don’t wave the flag in Umm el-Fahm … we will bring a state of Palestine all the way to Tel Aviv.”

Among the leaders of the march was Baruch Marzel, who led the anti-Arab Kach party that was banned in 1994 and who has been questioned several times by police in connection with attacks on Arabs.

Umm el-Fahm is in an area of Israel where many of the country’s 1.5 million Arab citizens live, and which Mr Lieberman wants to to cede to a future Palestinian state in exchange for Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. Mr Lieberman has been slated to become foreign minister in the Netanyahu coalition.

More than 2,000 police were deployed as a buffer between the flag-waving Israelis, including many from openly anti-Arab political groups, and residents of Umm el-Fahm. Toward the end of the march, scores of townspeople, some bearing Palestinian flags, threw rocks at the Jewish demonstrators and at police, who responded with teargas and water cannon. At least 16 residents and 15 police were injured. Reports suggested that a senior police chief was also hurt.

Jamal Zahalka, an Israeli Arab MP, slammed the Jewish demonstrators as racists. “Racism is not freedom of expression, it’s a criminal act and the law should punish it,” he said.

Protest by Far-Right Group Creates Unease in Israeli Arab Community

Posted by valecardia su 25 marzo, 2009

UMM AL-FAHM, Israel — As a group of far-right Jewish activists prepared to march on this Arab Israeli town Tuesday, the demonstrators said they just wanted to wave the Israeli flag and exercise their freedom of speech.

But Arab residents drew a different message from the protest, one that called into doubt their status as full citizens of the Jewish state. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israeli police clashed with Palestinian demonstrators in Umm al Fahm north-west of the West Bank yesterday, after an Israeli court had allowed a far-right demonstration to go ahead at the edge of the town. Dozens were arrested and about 30 people needed medical treatment after police used tear gas, stun grenades and water cannons to disperse crowds which had arrived to protest against the far-right march. Israeli officials said 2,500 police officers had been deployed to prevent clashes, Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Clash in tense Israeli-Arab town

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 24 marzo, 2009


24 March 2009

Israeli-Arab protesters have clashed with police as Jewish Israeli right-wingers marched in the majority-Arab town of Umm al-Fahm.

Thirteen arrests were made as police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse stone-throwing protesters.

Israeli-Arab residents of the town view the march as highly provocative and had vowed to stop it.

The High Court gave permission for the march, but police had postponed it several times, fearing violence.

About 2,500 police in riot gear flanked about 100 far-right activists as they marched on the outskirts of the town, waving Israeli flags.

The march was over within an hour, but clashes broke out as dozens of young, male Israeli-Arab counter-demonstrators, some with their faces covered with Palestinian scarves, began pelting the police with rocks.

The BBC’s Katya Adler at the scene described crouching behind a car with stones raining all around her.

She says that most of the crowd were angry but not violent, and older residents expressed disapproval as the rioting escalated.

A police spokesman said 15 police officers were injured, including Israel’s deputy police commissioner. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Lieberman inches closer to foreign ministry as coalition deal cements

Posted by alicemarziali su 16 marzo, 2009


Yisrael Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman, a far-right politician whose policies have raised Arab ire and international concern, was designated on Monday as foreign minister in a governing pact with Benjamin Netanyahu.

Enlisting his first coalition partner as prime minister-designate, Netanyahu signed up Yisrael Beitenu, a widely expected move that left the right-wing Likud party leader still short of a governing majority in parliament. Leggi il seguito di questo post »
