Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his willingness to enter into negotiations with Arab countries on the basis of the Arab Peace Initiative.

“The Arab Peace Initiative includes positive elements that can help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians,” Netanyahu said during a joint press conference held with Avigdor Lieberman after the Knesset approved the appointment of Lieberman as defence minister yesterday.

“I remain committed to making peace with the Palestinians and with all our neighbours, as the Arab Peace Initiative includes positive elements that can help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians,” he said.

We are willing to negotiate with the Arab states’ revisions to that initiative so that it reflects the dramatic changes in the region since 2002, but maintains the agreed goal of two states for two peoples,” he added.

Netanyahu also welcomed Egyptian President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi’s offer to advance peace and security in the region. Al-Sisi had called for the need to achieve peace between Israelis and Arabs and Palestinians.

The Arab Peace Initiative stipulates the establishment of an internationally recognised Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, as well as reaching a fair solution to the Palestinian refugee problem. It also calls for Israel’s withdrawal from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights and the Lebanese territories still under occupation, all in exchange for the Arab countries’ recognition of Israel and normalisation of relations.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.


Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
