Monkey Cage: The politics of Israel’s security officers 22.11.2014 Washington Post: Politics
In the beginning of November, 106 former Israeli security officials published a letter as an advertisement in an Israeli newspaper calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take advantage of Israel’s success in the summer’s Gaza war and make a serious effort at peace on the basis of the Arab Peace Initiative. The letter did not refer to a peace process with the Palestinians; in fact, it specifically noted these negotiations have consistently failed. Only a “political-regional approach and an arrangement with the moderate Arab states has a chance of bringing about an agreement with the Palestinians, stability, security and economic prosperity,” the officials ...

The Israel-Palestine conflict is not just about land. It’s a bitter religious war | Anshel Pfeffer 20.11.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
For decades, Arab and Jewish movements claimed they were secular. It is now clear this was a charade On Tuesday, soon after two young Palestinian men hacked their way through a Jerusalem synagogue , leaving four dead rabbis and a dying police officer in their wake, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine announced that the perpetrators were from its ranks and praised their “heroic operation”. Although armed, the two murderers chose to use meat cleavers for their bloody work – Isis-style. The PFLP once portrayed itself as a staunchly secular, Marxist-Leninist liberation movement. Founded by a Christian doctor, it even had a handful of radical anti-Zionist Jewish supporters. PFLP today is a shadow of its former self and no ally of Islamic State (Isis), seeking instead the patronage of Isis’s mortal enemy, the Islamic Republic of Iran. Hamas, which has also been at pains to distance itself from Isis, also rushed to congratulate the synagogue ...

Symbolic motion, echoing similar votes in Britain and Ireland, watered down following deadly attack on Jerusalem synagogue

Spanish lawmakers on Tuesday urged their government to recognise Palestine as a state, albeit only when the Palestinians and Israel negotiate a solution to their long-standing conflict.

The symbolic motion, which echoes similar votes last month in Britain and Ireland, was backed by all the political groupings in the lower house after the ruling People’s party watered down the wording hours after a deadly attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem in which five Israelis and two Palestinian assailants were killed.

The Guardian view on the Jerusalem killings: this must not become a holy war 19.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The murders in a synagogue were a truly appalling act of violence. Now Israeli and Palestinian leaders must act to prevent their conflict becoming a battle of Muslim against Jew – because religious conflicts can never be solved No one can look at photographs of Tuesday’s scene at Jerusalem’s Har Nof synagogue without shuddering. The sight of prayer shawls and prayer books drenched in blood stirs the bitterest memories. They are the images of a pogrom. Reports of the event confirm that impression. The murmuring hush of morning worship was broken by what witnesses say was a frenzied attack, the two Palestinian assailants – cousins from East Jerusalem – lashing out with weapons that included guns, knives and a meat cleaver. The floor of a house of prayer was turned red. People of all faiths – and even of none – will find something especially appalling about this act of violence. Any place of worship is meant to be a sanctuary; that much is understood universally. Inevitably, however, this attack has struck ...

PITTSBURGH — The food stand’s glass window slid open at exactly 11 a.m. Standing in the cold were four customers — and seven news photographers.
