President Obama tells Israel: stop expanding settlements

Posted by claudiacampli su 19 maggio, 2009

Tom Baldwin in Washington

 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 »

For Egypt, Promise of 1979 Peace Still Unfulfilled

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 5 aprile, 2009

CAIRO — In the past week, Egypt marked the historic 30-year anniversary of its peace treaty with Israel without any public celebration and only the barest public mention.

It is not surprising, really, that there was no cheering here. The timing could hardly have been worse, with memories still fresh of the Israeli offensive in Gaza.

But mention of the anniversary also served as a reminder of promises unfulfilled. Egyptians were told that the treaty would lead to a comprehensive peace, and it did not. They were told that it would allow the government to focus on political, social and economic development, instead of war. But they still live in an authoritarian state, defined for many by poverty.

Egyptians were told that the treaty would give them a voice to advocate for the Palestinians. But few see it as having turned out that way.

“Today Egypt is not influential in anything,” said Osama Anwar Okasha, a leading Egyptian television writer. “It is a third-class country in this region. Egypt was the leading country and it gave up this leading role. Now it is like a postman, delivering messages.”

The public mood is dark all around right now, and the sentiment points to the treaty as the start of Egypt’s decline and diplomatic impotence.

“Of course the treaty is not the cause of all of this, but it was the initial seed,” said Fahmy Howeidy, a writer and political analyst in Cairo.

The peace treaty between Israel and Egypt is a bedrock of the Middle East peace process, positioning Egypt as a key player in every international diplomatic effort to resolve the Palestinian conflict. It is a pillar of Egypt’s foreign policy, as well, and an institutional given among Egypt’s governing class. President Hosni Mubarak has demonstrated that he is committed to the treaty, and to the diplomatic process and political system that built and supports the treaty. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Analysis: Arab summit in Qatar – a demonstration of weakness

Zvi Mazel , THE JERUSALEM POST

The yearly gathering of Arab leaders which took place this week in Doha was supposed to be a summit of reconciliation; instead it laid bare the depth of the chasm in the Arab world, which was revealed in all its helplessness.

Scheduled to run for two days – March 30 and 31 – it closed its doors at the end of the first day. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Khaled Abu Toameh , THE JERUSALEM POST

The Obama administration has given the Palestinian Authority a “green light” to talk to Hamas about forming a Palestinian unity government, a PA official in Ramallah said over the weekend.

The official said that Washington had also given Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak the go-ahead to resume his efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

La «missione Mitchell» tra odio, abusi e macerie

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 29 gennaio, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – INVIATO A GAZA CITY per il Manifesto

«Un milione di arabi: uno in meno, tocca ad altri 999.999». I Samouni e le altre famiglie di Zaitun che hanno avuto morti e feriti e le case distrutte dalla furia dell’offensiva israeliana «Piombo fuso», devono sopportare anche l’umiliazione di scritte offensive e razziste sulle pareti delle poche case rimaste in piedi nella loro zona. «Quando siamo tornati a casa (al termine dell’attacco israeliano, ndr) abbiamo visto queste scritte offensive. Le hanno lasciate i soldati per calpirci ancora una volta» Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Gaza crisis threatens outlook for Mubarak

CAIRO: Egypt’s efforts to broker a cease-fire between Israel and Gaza have brought it no peace at home.

Its restive population has taken to the streets by the thousands in protest, blaming President Hosni Mubarak for his inability – or unwillingness – to help Palestinians in the coastal enclave, more than 1,300 of whom died in the three-week conflict. Taxi drivers replace Arab pop with Palestinian martial music on their cassette radios, businessmen in central Cairo sport checkered Palestinian scarves, and art galleries produce instant antiwar exhibits.

If negotiations fall apart, Egypt’s credibility as a self-declared regional stabilizer and leader of the Arab world will be damaged. Mubarak’s popularity was already low among Egyptians because of the country’s increasing economic problems. Turmoil even threatens a smooth transition to new leadership – with Mubarak’s son, Gamal, as heir-apparent to his 80-year-old father. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Leaders mend rifts over Gaza

Posted by Alessandro Accorsi su 20 gennaio, 2009

The National-UAE

KUWAIT CITY // Pleas by several Arab countries seemed to have healed rifts created during the Israeli attacks on Gaza. The reconciliation was announced after the end of a first day of speeches at a regional economic summit in Kuwait that also saw donations of reconstruction aid to the Palestinians in Gaza.

“We have to overcome Arab political differences that led to a division in Arab ranks which can be exploited by those who want to achieve their regional ambitions,” said King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who at the summit’s opening session announced the donation of US$1 billion (Dh3.67bn) to a fund for the rebuilding of Gaza. When the fund was announced on Saturday, organisers aimed to collect $2bn. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

‘Israel has achieved nothing from this’

With both Israel and Hamas declaring victory in the war on Gaza and with each independently calling for a ceasefire, the focus of international attention has turned to the consolidation of the ceasefire and the urgent humanitarian needs of the people of Gaza.

Israel intends to complete its withdrawal from Gaza prior to Barack Obama’s inauguration as the new US president on Tuesday, Ynet reported. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Egyptians Sick Of Own Government, Media Over Gaza Claims

Posted by Alessandro Accorsi su 19 gennaio, 2009

JOSEPH MAYTON (Middle East Times)

CAIRO — Egyptians say they are sick of the “official line” fed them by their national media and government officials on the three-week Israeli war on Gaza, which ended early Sunday morning when Israel unilaterally ceased military operations.

Throughout the attacks, which left more than 1,000 Palestinians dead and another 5,000 wounded, Egyptians had to filter the officials’ comments and government media reports about the diplomatic efforts the Hosni Mubarak administration was making to end the war. Leggi il seguito di questo post »
