Sens. Sanders, Warren call for ‘restricting’ US aid to Israel at J Street confabJacob Magid - Times of Israel - At the J-Street conference, Prominent progressive senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren both call for restricting US aid to Israel, so that such assistance should not be allowed to bankroll Israeli policies in the West Bank that damage prospects for a two-state solution. “If we’re serious about arresting settlement expansion and helping move the parties toward a two-state solution, then it would be irresponsible not to consider all of the tools we have at our disposal,” Warren told J Street. “One of those is restricting military aid from being used in the occupied territories. By continuing to provide military aid without restriction, we provide no incentive for Israel to adjust course,” she added. from being used in the occupied territories. By continuing to provide military aid without restriction, we provide no incentive for Israel to adjust course,”. For his part, Sanders also declared himself in favor of the US using its aid as leverage. “I strongly believe that we must also be willing to bring real pressure to bear, including restricting US aid, in response to moves by either side that undermine the chances for peace,” he said. “The truth is that the United States gives an enormous amount of military aid to Israel. It also provides some humanitarian and economic aid to the Palestinians. It is totally appropriate for the United States to say what that aid may and may not be used for,” Sanders argued. “In terms of aid to Israel, in my view, the American people do not want to see that money being used to support policies that violate human rights and treat the Palestinian people as second-class human beings,” he added.Both Warren and Sanders called on Israel to do more to ensure that Palestinians are vaccinated. “Jewish settlers in the West Bank are receiving vaccinations, while few Palestinians have any access to life-saving shots,” Warren said. [ak] The term used was “restricting”, rather than "conditioning” - a term used by several left-wing candidates during the recent US presidential campaign, including Sanders and Warren. The earlier term implied that some or all of the $3.8 billion in aid that the US has agreed to give Israel over a 10-year period should potentially be withheld based on actions taken by the Israeli government. In shifting to talk of “restricting” aid, progressive Democrats, with J Street’s backing, are not calling to limit the amount of already- agreed-upon aid, but are rather seeking greater control of how it may and may not be used.21/4/2021

“High-level” Israel lobby interference in British politics, says ex-ministerASA WINSTANLEY - Electronic Intifada - Duncan writes that Conservative Friends of Israel successfully vetoed his appointment as Middle East minister in 2016. Then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told him that Conservative Friends of Israel were “going ballistic” at the prospect, Duncan writes. “It is for no other reason than that I believe in the rights of Palestinians and it’s quite clear that they don’t,” he adds. “They just want to belittle and subjugate the Palestinians.” [bz]15/4/2021

Canada`s New Democratic Party calls for boycotting settlements, stopping arms trade with Israel Michael Bueckert - Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) - The policy convention of the New Democratic Party voted for “ending all trade and economic cooperation with illegal settlements in Israel-Palestine,” and “suspending the bilateral trade of all arms and related materials with the State of Israel until Palestinian rights are upheld.” These resolutions were adopted by an overwhelming 80% majority.

Supreme Court allows minister to `temporarily` block Israel Prize for left-wing math prof. Oded GoldreichTimes of Israel - Michael Sfard, Goldreich’s attorney, said that Gallant and Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit “created a clear McCarthyistic track for denying the Israel Prize to people with positions opposing occupation, expulsion and apartheid, and thus bar from it an entire political camp in Israel that is guilty of the same crime.” Prof. Oded Goldreich, a professor at the Weizmann Institute, was nominated for this year`s prestigious Israel Prize in the field of Mathematics, for his work on computational complexity theory - but Education Minister Yoav Galant is determined to deny him the prize, over Goldreich having signed a petition calling upon the German Parliament not to define the BDS movement as "Antisemitic". The court gave the minister 30 days to determine whether he has the right to block the granting of a prize on such grounds. That means that Goldreich will not get the prize at the ceremony on Israel Independence Day next week - though, if the final decision should go against the Minister, he might get it at a later time. The prize’s mathematics and computer science committee said Thursday it was dismayed that the award had turned into “a political playing field, and that the regulations of the prize are not being upheld by the education minister.” [ak] 8/4/2021

Netanyahu’s Shameful Speech: When Holocaust Remembrance Day Becomes a Campaign EventAlon Pinkas - Haaretz - Here was the prime minister of the State of Israel, the state of the Jewish people, speaking at Yad Vashem on the eve of the country’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, one of the most sacred days on the Israeli national calendar. On such an occasion, you would expect somberness, solemnity, humility, grace, historical perspective and valuable insight. After all, this is a day in which the entire country remembers the most vile genocide and tragedy in human history. But not when it comes to Mr. Netanyahu. For the prime minister, it’s all about him. Always. For him, Holocaust Remembrance Day is just another opportunity to make a political speech, a self- serving tirade. As a bonus encore, just to make things even more politicized, this year’s speech also included a warning to President Joe Biden on Iran. [ak]8/4/2021

Biden Plans to Repeal Trump-Era Sanctions on the International Criminal Court Robbie Gramer and Colum Lynch - Foreign Policy - The Biden administration plans to revoke a Trump-era executive order levying sanctions on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The expected move is likely to ease a state of open hostility by the U.S. government toward the Hague-based international tribunal, which clashed bitterly with the Trump administration over its efforts to investigate possible war crimes by American personnel in Afghanistan and Israeli security forces in the Palestinian territories. But it is unlikely to end tension between the court and the Biden administration, which, like prior administrations, contends that the tribunal lacks standing to prosecute Israeli and U.S. nationals. Neither country has ratified the 1998 treaty creating the international court. [ak]1/4/2021

Imprisoned Militant Barghouti Will Challenge Abbas’s Party in the Palestinian ElectionThe New York Times - Marwan Barghouti, a highly respected Palestinian militant serving multiple life sentences in an Israeli prison, broke with the leadership of the dominant Fatah party that controls the Palestinian Authority - escalating a power struggle and dimming the party’s hopes of retaining a monopoly on power in parliamentary elections. From his prions cell, Mr. Barghouti commands considerable respect among many party cadres and is considered a potential future candidate for Palestinian president. Fatah members acting on his behalf broke with the party, forming a separate electoral slate that will compete against Fatah in the elections in May and posing a direct challenge to Fatah’s 85-year- old leader, Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority.

President Abbas defies Israeli security chief on elections and Hague proceedings Richard Silverstein - Haaretz/Tikkun Olam - During a `patronizing` visit in Ramallah, Nadav Argaman - head of Israel`s Shabak Security Service - demanded that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas cancel the upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections, reportedly telling Abbas, “You can’t hold elections with Hamas.” To that, Abbas retorted, “I don’t work for you.” Argaman then warned that the election could bring Hamas to power in the West Bank. Abbas responded, “You’re telling me this? Who built Hamas? Who transfers $30 million to Hamas every month? You [Israelis] built Hamas.” After their sharp disagreement on the Palestinian elections, the two discussed the International Criminal Court’s investigation into alleged war crimes by Israel and Hamas. Argaman threatened that “if you cooperate with the investigation in The Hague, we’ll stop transferring the taxes” that Israel collects on the Palestinian Authority’s behalf. Abbas answered, “I have a complaint about your actions, and I have nowhere else [but the Hague] to turn to.” In response, Argaman threatened that Israel would file its own complaint to the ICC against the PA. Abbas responded, “As far as I’m concerned, you and I can sit together in the same prison cell.” [ak] 1/4/2021

Ra`am leader Mansur Abbas to make statement as Ra`am split over Netanyahu alliance Hassan Shaalan - Y-net - Radically departing from the Arab parties` traditional support for the Center- Left in Israeli politics, Ra`am leader Mansur Abbas has not ruled out joining a Netanyahu-led coalition - provided that Netanyahu grants Ra`am`s demands. (Since neither PM Netanyahu nor his opponents have enough seats to form a government coalition, Ra`am`s four seats in the 120-member Knesset can tip the balance.) Ra`am demands a real government program to combat the crime wave rife in Israel`s Arab sector; abolition of the "Kaminitz Law" which was enacted to facilitate the demolition of "illegal" houses in the Arab sector; a legal recognition of the "unrecognized" Bedouin villages in the Negev, which are a major Ra`am electoral stronghold; and an abolition or major revision of the "Nation State Law" which entrenches Israel`s Jewish character and thus relegates Arab citizens to a second class status. However, many members of the Ra`am Party doubt that Netanyahu either could or would grant such demands. [ak]1/4/2021

US: It`s our longstanding position that the West Bank is occupiedTovah Lazaroff - The Jerusalem Post - The Biden administration on Wednesday clarified that it considers the West Bank to be occupied territory, but ducked a question as to whether it held that settlements were illegal. "It is a historical fact that Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan Heights after the 1967 War," Said State Department spokesperson Ned Price. The question arose because the 2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices - the first published since the inauguration of President Biden - retained some of the terminology adopted under Trump."In fact, the 2020 report does use the term `occupation` in the context of the current status of the West Bank," Price said. "This has been the longstanding position of previous administrations of both parties over the course of many decades." When asked if the Boden Administration, unlike its predecessor, considers Israeli settlements to be illegal, Price avoided a clear answer, saying instead that "We – as you have heard me say before – we continue to encourage all sides to avoid actions – both sides, I should say – to avoid actions that would put the two-state solution further out of reach. Again, our ultimate goal here is to facilitate – to help bring about – a two-state solution because it is the best path to preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish and democratic state while bestowing on the Palestinians their legitimate aspirations of sovereignty and dignity in a state of their own," he said.[ak]1/4/2021

Israel Election Results: Mansour Abbas, Don’t Believe NetanyahuHaaretz editorial - Joining forces with Netanyahu wouldn’t just be a moral and strategic mistake, it would be pure naivete. Netanyahu’s word is worthless. Abbas knows very well that agreements with Netanyahu aren’t worth the paper they are written on, and that whoever shakes Netanyahu’s hand needs to check afterward that he still has all his fingers. If Abbas still has any doubts about this, he should call Benny Gantz, whom Netanyahu deceived before the whole world, while Shas chairman Arye Dery supposedly vouched for the rotation agreement. Abbas also ought to recall that Netanyahu prevented Israel from passing a national budget and dragged it to a fourth election in the midst of a pandemic – just to wiggle out of the rotation agreement.

Obaid, who said the views he was expressing were those held by the kingdom’s de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, asserted that Saudi Arabia would see normalization as a way to pressure Israel on behalf of the Palestinians and that current Israeli policies showed it was therefore not an option.

Israeli politics can no longer ignore Palestinian citizens — even if it may end up boosting the right.Edo Konrad - +972 - The outcome was no stroke of luck; Abbas has been building up to this moment for months. In January, he pushed his Ra’am party to split off from the Joint List; and unlike in previous elections, in which Abbas promoted a moderate political and religious agenda, Ra’am made conservatism a cornerstone of its new political program, including an emphasis on its opposition to LGBTQ rights. In addition, Abbas re-branded himself as a “pragmatist” by making public overtures to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli right wing based on “mutual interests.” This included Ra’am’s (and the Joint List’s) demand to increase the government budget for addressing the most serious issues plaguing Palestinian society in Israel, including organized crime, gun violence, and housing construction in Arab communities.

A proposal for `resetting relations with the Palestinians` discussed in the Biden Administration The National News (Abu Dhabi) - A memo drafted by Hady Amr, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israeli-Palestinian affairs and presented to Secretary Blinken, recommends `resetting` relations with the Palestinians, who are moving towards holding their first general elections in 15 years. The memo recommends re-establishing contact with the Palestinian Authority which was cut under Trump, who shut the US consulate in Jerusalem and kicked Palestinian diplomats out of the US. Noting that Trump`s peace plan ignored key Palestinian concerns such as East Jerusalem becoming the capital of a Palestinian state, the memo recommends that the present administration re-commit the US to achieving Israeli-Palestinian peace under a two-state solution framework “based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps and agreements on security and refugees", reopen a US mission in the Palestinian territories to signal a commitment to the two-state solution, resuming a full range of economic, security and humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians, including aid to UNRWA.)US financial aid to the PA and to UNRWA, and reversing Trump`s agreement to label settlement products entering the US as "Made in Israel". An immediate first step, to be announced later this month or in early April, is a $15 million in Covid-related humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians. [ak]18/3/2021

Netanyahu and Lapid reportedly sabotage each other`s meetings with Arab Princes Y-Net/World Israeli News - Twelve days ahead of the crucial Israeli general elections, the campaigns of both PM Netanyahu and opposition leader Lapid reportedly extend to involve Arab Monarchies and their Crown Princes. This morning, Jordan’s Crown Prince Hussein was due to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem, but was turned back at the Allenby Bridge by the Israeli military authorities. The official reason was that he had with him "too many armed bodyguards". But it is rumored that this was just a pretext, the real reason being that he intended to meet Opposition Leader Lapid. In an apparent retaliation, Jordan refused to allow the plane of PM Netanyahu to cross Jordanian airspace, to meet with Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and possibly also the Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Ben Salman.

Defense Minister Ganz: Hundreds of Israelis may face prosecution at the International Criminal Court Yonah Jeremy Bob - Jerusalem Post/Reuters - International Criminal Court Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda is opening a full war crimes probe against Israel and Hamas. "The decision followed a painstaking preliminary examination undertaken by my office, lasting close to five years. Our central concern must be for the victims of crimes, both Palestinian and Israeli, arising from the long cycle of violence and insecurity that has caused deep suffering and despair on all sides. My office will take the same principled, non-partisan, approach that it has adopted in previous cases." The Government of Israel voiced vehement protest, frustrated in its hope that Bensouda - soon to end her term as ICC prosecutor - would leave the decision to her successor and that he could be persuaded to stop the investigation. Defense Minister and Acting Justice Minister Benny Gantz alarmed government officials when he warned that hundreds of Israelis could be subject – in the near future – to war crimes probes by the International Criminal Court.
