Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu wishes Muslims ‘Ramadan Kareem’ – ABC News

The leader of the Jewish state sent Ramadan greetings to its Muslim citizens Saturday.

“I wish #Ramadan Kareem to Israel’s Muslim citizens and Muslims around the world, hoping for much needed brotherhood, mutual respect & peace,” tweeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Ramadan Kareem” means “have a generous Ramadan.”

Netanyahu also tweeted his well wishes in Arabic.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad, according to Islamic belief. Muslims are expected not to eat or drink during daylight hours, including water and medicine. Faithful people may also avoid smoking and sex.

Netanyahu’s greetings follow gestures of goodwill by the Israeli government timed to the start of Ramadan.

Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai of the Israeli defense body COGAT said in a statement Friday that one such gesture is access for 100 Gaza residents to attend prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem each Friday throughout Ramadan. West Bank crossings will alo be open longer, the statement said.

And hundreds of hunger-striking Palenstinian prisoners ended their 40-day fast Saturday, after Israel reached a deal with the Palestinian Authority and the Red Cross for prisoners to receive a second family visit each per month.

The Israel prison service said 1,578 prisoners participated in the hunger strike and 834 ended their fast Saturday.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Netanyahu appoints new minister to oversee Israel telecom reforms – Eyewitness News

Ayoob Kara will join the communications ministry which has oversight of the telecoms and broadcast media industries.

JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appointed on Sunday Ayoob Kara, a minister in his Likud party, as communications minister, who will oversee Israel’s telecom market as it undergoes significant reforms.

Netanyahu himself held the post until he relinquished it in February amid allegations he had negotiated a deal with a newspaper owner for good press coverage.

The communications ministry has oversight of the telecoms and broadcast media industries.

The cabinet has approved the appointment of Kara, who was previously a minister without portfolio, the prime minister’s office said in a statement.

Netanyahu kept the communications portfolio for himself after re-election in 2015, but shortly after gave up much of the job’s responsibility when he was barred from dealing with Israel’s largest telecom provider, Bezeq, due to his personal friendship with the company’s chairman.

Netanyahu stepped down from the role completely three months ago after being questioned by police over allegations he tried to secure a deal with the owner of Israel’s best-selling newspaper for better coverage. He did not give an official reason for stepping down.

Likud lawmaker and Netanyahu confidant Tzachi Hanegbi filled the post in the interim.

One of the biggest decisions Kara will have to make is whether to allow Bezeq, one of the most profitable companies in Israel and a favorite among foreign investors, to combine its fixed-line, mobile, satellite TV and internet units, which currently are separate companies.

He also faces the challenge of enhancing competition in the fixed-line sector and enabling mobile phone operators like Cellcom and Partner to better compete with Bezeq.

Taking Trump’s peace push seriously, Netanyahu said looking to broaden coalition – The Times of Israel

With President Donald Trump pushing for Israeli-Palestinian peace progress, Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is again looking to widen his coalition by bringing in politicians from the center left, a TV report said. The report coincided with a new poll showing more Israelis backing than opposing a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 lines.

The report, on Israels Channel 2 news on Friday night, said that Netanyahu and opposition leader Isaac Herzog spoke by phone on the eve of Trumps visit to Israel this week, and have arranged to meet in the aftermath of Trumps trip. Herzog, who met with Trump briefly on Tuesday, has said repeatedly in the last few days that he would back Netanyahu from outside the coalition were the prime minister to push for substantive progress in peacemaking with the Palestinians.

Netanyahu is working to broaden his coalition because he wants room for maneuver should direct Israeli-Palestinian talks resume, said the TV report, which was not confirmed.

The same TV station on Friday night also published a survey showing Israelis backing a two-state accord deal with the Palestinians, based on the 1967 borders adjusted to include the major settlement blocs, by 47% to 39%, with 14% undecided.

The survey also showed Netanyahu backed by 35% as their choice for prime minister, far ahead of centrist Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on 14%, with no other candidate in double figures. It also gave the Likud a healthy lead in Knesset seats, on 30, compared to Yesh Atid on 22, an improvement for the Likud on previous polls.

Herzog, head of the center-left Zionist Union came close to joining the coalition last year, but their negotiations collapsed amid mutual recriminations, and Avigdor Libermans right-wing Yisrael Beytenu party joined the government instead, with Liberman becoming defense minister. Herzog was set to join the coalition to advance peace talks, following a February 2016 summit, attended by Netanyahu, secretary of state John Kerry, Jordans King Abdullah and Egypts President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, which was intended to jump-start negotiating efforts. Herzog later blamed Netanyahu for spurning the opportunity under pressure from Likud and Jewish Home right-wingers.

Trump reiterated on his May 22-23 visit here that he seeks to broker an Israeli-Palestinian accord. While Netanyahu highlighted his skepticism about Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbass readiness for a deal, he did tell Trump that for the first time in many years and, Mr. President, for the first time in my lifetime I see a real hope for change.

For his part, Trump was adamant in his final speech at the Israel Museum on Tuesday that Abbas and the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace.

Trumps son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner Kushner, who along with international negotiations envoy Jason Greenblatt has been tasked by Trump with relaunching the peace process, reportedly told Herzog on Tuesday: We are planning to move fast in starting a diplomatic process in order to reach a deal.

Senior ministers were quoted in the Channel 2 report saying that it was clear that Trump will be pressing Israel for compromise, and that celebrations on the right because Trump did not refer to Palestinian statehood during his visit, and did not criticize the settlement enterprise, were misplaced. Were all dancing on the Titanic, an unnamed top minister was quoted as saying.

The Channel 2 report quoted Israeli ministers who met with Trump and his team saying that the US president and his key advisers drew three conclusions about peacemaking from their trip: That progress on the Israel-Palestinian front is central to progress elsewhere in the Middle East; that Abbas, with whom he has now met twice, is a viable partner; and that the notion that Netanyahu cant make compromises because of the constraints of his right-wing coalition is false, since the center-left would support him.

Bringing the Zionist Union into the coalition would be extremely complicated because of opposition from existing coalition partners and from many in Herzogs party. Furthermore, Zionist Union is holding leadership elections on July 4, and Herzog faces a serious threat to his hold on the party.

Channel 2 suggested that Tzipi Livni, the former foreign minister who heads a 5-member faction (Hatnua) inside the Zionist Union, could break away from Herzog and join Netanyahu, but noted that Livni is skeptical about Netanyahus readiness to move forward. Livni, who shares the sense that there is an opportunity for a breakthrough, is said to have established a good relationship with Greenblatt.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Trump pressured Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table during his visit. There were very substantive discussions in Israel with both PM Netanyahu as well as President Abbas, Tillerson told reporters aboard Air Force One. He put a lot of pressure on them that its time to get to the table.

Tillerson further said that Trump very forceful pushing both sides that a peace deal will require them to make difficult compromises. The president was very forceful in his encouragement to both of them to be serious about approaching these discussions in the future and recognize they have to compromise; everyone has to compromise, he said.

Americas top diplomat also suggested that Israeli-Palestinian peace could be a catalyst to greater regional peace, what is sometimes referred to as the linkage argument.

Trump has made the point several times: We solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace dilemma, we start solving a lot of the peace throughout the Middle East region, Tillerson said.
