-Netanyahu unfit to be PM of Israel

Benjamin Netanyahu, serving as Israel´s prime minister since 2009, his third term, is “unfit for the job”, according to the leading leftwing newspaper Haaretz. In today´s editorial they analyse the situation, blaming him for turning Israel into a pariah state, with the following conclusion:

“… the dramatic change Netanyahu is talking about won’t happen if the person in charge remains someone unable to bravely deal with the difficult problems facing Israel, primarily the Palestinian issue. A 47-year-old occupation of millions of people is intolerable. A responsible prime minister must force a genuine effort to end this tragedy. For three terms as prime minister, Netanyahu proved he has neither the ability nor the intention to solve the problem, choosing instead the tactic of “managing the conflict,” which means stalling for time without action. Israel cannot allow itself another four years of stalling for time.”

Belgium tries to have EU recognize Palestine

A number of EU member countries are searching for recognition of Palestina as a new way of balancing the assymetric negotiating positions of Israel and the Palestinian Administration.

The Belgian federal parliament is expected to vote on a draft motion asking the Belgian government to recognise Palestine at a future point. It is legally non-binding and doesn’t indicate a deadline.
