With little progress so far, the Americans are now setting their sights on a preliminary deal.Erekat said that based on the July 29 start of negotiations, they are to end on April 29. “We are not talking about a peace treaty on the 29th of April.

Israel PM vows to continue settlement expansion

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to continue “developing” settlements following reports of US pressure ahead of a fresh round of Palestinian prisoner releases due later this month.

“We will not stop, even for a moment, building our country and becoming stronger, and developing… the settlement enterprise,” he told members of his right-wing Likud faction in remarks broadcast on army radio on Thursday.

Netanyahu’s comments, made late on Wednesday, came as US Secretary of State John Kerry fights for the survival of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, which were launched in late July but have been severely strained by Israel’s persistent settlement drive.

Late on Wednesday, the Haaretz news website reported that Kerry and other senior US officials had urged Netanyahu and his cabinet “to exercise maximum restraint in announcing new construction,” in tandem with the release on December 29 of 26 veteran Palestinian prisoners.

Two previous rounds of prisoner releases in August and October have been accompanied by Israeli announcements of fresh construction on land the Palestinians want for a future state, sparking deep anger in Ramallah.

But in his remarks on Wednesday, Netanyahu appeared to rebuff any pressure from Washington, blaming the absence of any peace agreement on the Palestinians’ refusal to recognise Israel as the Jewish state.

“I know that people keep telling us that there is no peace because of the settlements, because of our presence in Judaea and Samaria and it’s not true,” the premier said, using the biblical term for the West Bank.

“There is no peace because of the ongoing opposition to the existence of a national Jewish homeland within any borders, and we have the right to a state just like any other people.”

Court document: Netanyahu swapped tour of China for testimony on terror-financing

Special to WorldTribune.com

WASHINGTON Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to have abandoned an attempt to block Hamas and Islamic Jihad finances for a family trip to China.

An affidavit filed in a U.S. federal district court alleged that Netanyahu withdrew Israels support for a suit against a financier to Palestinian insurgency groups in exchange for a tour of China in May 2013.

The suit by the family of Daniel Wultz said Netanyahu brought 75 of his closest friends and family to Beijing after he blocked a former intelligence official, Uzi Shaya, from testifying against the state-owned Bank of China.

Mr. Shaya told me that Prime Minister Netanyahu had wanted to visit China for a long time but was not invited to do so, Sheryl Cantor Wultz said in an affidavit to the federal district court in Washington D.C. on Dec. 17. Now he had been invited by high-level Chinese government officials for a special visit and was encouraged to bring 75 of his closest friends and family, who were treated like royalty. The trip was conditioned on Mr. Shaya not testifying.

In November, Netanyahu announced that Israel was withdrawing from the suit against Bank of China by the families of Hamas and Jihad victims. The prime minister, who on Dec. 18 met visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, cited what he termed national security concerns.

My visit to China and your visit here today in Jerusalem express the determination of our two governments to form even stronger friendships between our two countries and much stronger cooperation, Netanyahu told Wang.

But Ms. Wultz, a cousin of House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, asserted that Netanyahu aides did not deny that the prime minister caved in to pressure by Beijing. She cited a conversation with then-Israeli National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror in June 2013.

While we are respectful of Chinas interests, and of the diplomatic pressure to which Israel has been subjected, those interests and that pressure cannot be permitted to obstruct the ability of American courts to hear critical evidence, David Boies, the lead Wultz family lawyer, said.

Benjamin Netanyahu to Skip Nelson Mandela Memorial Due to Cost

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to skip Nelson Mandela’s memorial due to cost reasons – (Reuters)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely to skip the memorial for anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela because the trip to South Africa and security arrangements are considered too expensive.

The Israeli media have cited officials from Netanyahu’s office as saying that the prime minister will be unable to attend Mandela’s public memorial in Johannesburg owing to “financial and logistic outlay”.

However, there has been no official statement on Netanyahu’s non-attendance as yet.

Netanyahu,who hailed Mandelaas”a man of vision and a freedom fighter who disavowed violence”, had earlier informed South African authorities that he would attend the memorial at the FNB football stadium on the outskirts of Johannesburg onTuesday (10 December).

Netanyahu has been in the spotlight in recent times over his expenses. It was earlier revealed that nearly $23,000 (14,000) of public money had been spent on filling water for Netanyahu’s swimming pool as well as 1,000 for scented candles.

It is unclear who will represent Israel at the memorial, but President Shimon Peres is expected to replace Netanyahu.

So far, more than50 heads of governmentsacross the world have said they are either attending the public memorial or the state funeral.

US President Barack Obama and all living former American presidents, along with 26 members of Congress, are likely to travel to South Africa for the memorial.

The list includes UN Chief Ban Ki-moon, British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande and Cuban President Raul Castro.
