Kerry: Peace talks to extend past April deadline

Parties are still ‘in the middle’ of negotiations, says US secretary of state, ahead of a likely meeting with Netanyahu in DC

February 27, 2014, 2:20 am 0-The times of Israel
WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged Wednesday that his quest to seal a full Middle East peace deal will slip beyond an April deadline.He was first hoping to agree a framework to guide the talks between Israel and the Palestinians, Kerry told a small group of reporters in Washington, including AFP.“Then we get into the final negotiations. I don’t think anybody would worry if there’s another nine months, or whatever it’s going to be… But that’s not defined yet,” he said in his private conference room at the State Department.“We’re using the current deadline to help shape this,” he said, adding he was prepared to continue the talks “for whatever period of time might be appropriate.”The top US diplomat coaxed the two sides back to the negotiating table in late July, after a three-year hiatus, and at the time said the aim was to reach a full peace treaty within nine months.But asked Wednesday if that was still possible, Kerry replied: “Well, no, we’ve been very upfront about that. For months we’ve been saying we’re trying to get a framework.”“We’ve understood what we can get within this time period. We’ve never fudged that,” he insisted.“We’re trying to get the framework, which is a huge deal if we’ve used these seven months thus far to get an understanding of where the parties are and to be able to shape the final negotiations.”Kerry has been shuttling between the two sides, and last week met Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in Paris for talks as he seeks to hammer out the framework.The negotiations have shown little sign of progress, amid bitter recriminations with each side blaming the other for the stalemate.But Kerry insisted that both parties were still “in the middle” of the talks.“I laugh at people who say it’s not going anywhere. They don’t know because we’re not talking about where it’s at. They have no clue where our negotiations are and whether they could go anywhere.”A Palestinian official told AFP however last week that Kerry’s ideas could not be the basis of any framework.“The ideas proposed cannot be accepted by the Palestinian side as the basis for a framework accord between the Palestinians and Israel as they do not take into account the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people,” he told AFP, asking not to be named.US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said on Friday that he expected Palestinian recognition of Israel’s Jewish character to be part of the framework, which Palestinians fear could compromise the right of return for refugees.Kerry is also likely in the coming days to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of an annual conference in Washington organized by AIPAC.“Clearly the final status agreement is a huge document, pages of legalese that have to be worked out, about security and movements and passages… water, energy, there’s a lot there,” he added.

Kerry’s framework reportedly left Abbas fuming in Paris

PA president called US proposals — including a Palestinian capital in Beit Hanina and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state — ‘insanity,’ according to Palestinian daily

February 27, 2014, 1:39 am 16-The times of Israel
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas left a two-day meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris last week fuming over Kerry’s proposals for a framework accord between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a Palestinian report.The top American diplomat reportedly offered for Abbas to form a Palestinian capital in Beit Hanina, not all of East Jerusalem, as the Palestinians have demanded.
Kerry also suggested that Israel keep 10 settlement blocs as part of any territorial exchange, according to Al Quds, the most widely read Palestinian daily, on Wednesday.The Jordan Valley would not be part of a future Palestinian state, Palestinian sources told the paper, nor would there be an international force stationed there. And Kerry reportedly demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.
The report, which received no official confirmation, added that Abbas exploded with rage over the US secretary’s proposals, and described them as “insanity.” The PA president threatened to “overturn tables” and to go back on the flexibility he had shown in order to facilitate US-led peace efforts, according to Al Quds.The paper suggested that Abbas’s subsequent invitation to meet US President Barack Obama at the White House was a form of damage control on the part of the Americans. A date has yet to be set for the visit.

The explosive nature of the meeting reported in the Palestinian daily appeared far removed from the image projected by Abbas to the media in Paris, where he described American efforts as “extremely serious.”
“So far the Americans have not been able to put these ideas into a framework, even if the efforts are extremely serious,” he said Friday. Kerry called the meeting “constructive.”But a Palestinian official who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity said that the US secretary’s proposals could not serve as the basis for a framework deal, as “they do not take into account the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.”
Israel and the Palestinians are nearing the end of a nine-month round of talks, brokered by the US.Kerry acknowledged Wednesday that talks between the parties would stretch beyond the current April deadline. He told reporters that he was hoping to first secure a framework agreement.“Then we get into the final negotiations. I don’t think anybody would worry if there’s another nine months, or whatever it’s going to be… But that’s not defined yet,” he said at the State Department.

Obama to press Netanyahu, Abbas to accept framework’

New York Times report says US president is gearing up to take a more active role in Israeli-Palestinian talks, as April deadline looms

February 27, 2014, 6:26 am 4-The times of Israel
US President Barack Obama is gearing up to take a more active role in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and will begin by pressuring the sides to accept US Secretary of State John Kerry’s framework proposals, according to a report that cited administration officials on Wednesday.In his scheduled meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday in Washington, Obama will make an urgent appeal to the Israeli leader to accept Kerry’s generalized roadmap for final status negotiations, according to The New York Times.The US president is expected to apply the same pressure to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas when the two meet next month.Obama, since his reelection, has ostensibly given Kerry the reins when it comes to the Middle East conflict, with the secretary making 11 trips to the region since helping to launch a new round of talks in July.“Now is a very timely opportunity for [Obama] to get involved,” a senior administration official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.With reports that the sides have reached an impasse over issues such as the recognition of Israel as a Jewish state and maintaining an Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley, and with a 9-month deadline for talks looming in April, White House officials said now is the time for the president to get involved.“The president wouldn’t want to run any risk that it was the lack of his involvement that would make the difference between success and failure,” said a senior official.On Wednesday, Kerry admitted that the talks would extend past April, but officials said the goal is to have a framework by the end of that month.Also on Wednesday, a report surfaced in the Palestinian media which described an explosive meeting between Abbas and Kerry in Paris last week, after which the Palestinian leader reportedly called the secretary’s proposals “insanity.”According to Al Quds, Kerry offered for Abbas to form a Palestinian capital in Beit Hanina, not all of East Jerusalem, as the Palestinians have demanded. And he suggested that Israel keep 10 settlement blocs as part of any territorial exchange. The Jordan Valley would not be part of a future Palestinian state, Palestinian sources told the paper, nor would there be an international force stationed there. And Kerry reportedly demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.There was no official confirmation of the report.

Official said to confirm informal settlement freeze

Jordan Valley leader says cabinet secretary told him of government-ordered halt to construction outside blocs, at US’s behest

February 27, 2014, 10:28 am 3-The times of Israel
The government has unofficially and quietly froze settlement construction outside the major blocs for the past few months in an apparent acquiescence to American pressure.According to a report in Yedioth Ahronoth on Thursday, Jordan Valley regional council chief David Elchaiiani asked Cabinet Secretary Avichai Mandelblit last week why construction was being held up in the settlements that he administers, even in projects that had received approval from the defense minister. He was told that the order had come from on high not to advance construction plans in settlements outside the major blocs.“We received instruction from policy makers not to advance plans outside what’s found in the settlement blocs,” Mandelblit was quoted as telling Elchaiiani last Monday. “Let’s wait patiently until we return from the United States and then we’ll talk,” he was said to add, in a reference to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington on Monday.
Major West Bank settlement blocs are typically thought to include the Jewish communities in the Etzion bloc south of Jerusalem, Ma’aleh Adumim, and Ariel, but it wasn’t clear from the report what areas are included in the unofficial construction freeze.Israel has demanded that the sparsely populated Jordan Valley, which runs along the border with the Hashemite Kingdom, remain under its control as part of a deal with the Palestinians, citing its strategic importance.In recent months, right-wing MKs have drafted bills seeking to annex the Jordan Valley and place it under Israeli jurisdiction, and the UN has noted a rise in Israeli demolitions of Palestinian construction in the area.Last week Army Radio reported that the Obama administration asked Israel to impose an unofficial settlement freeze outside major settlements blocs if an American-mediated framework agreement is agreed upon by Israeli and Palestinian negotiators. According to Thursday’s Yedioth Ahronoth report, that move has already been in effect for months.Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel dismissed the Yedioth Ahronoth report, denying any moratorium on settlement development.“We will under no circumstances agree to freezing [the construction of] a single home in the land of Israel,” he said in a statement. “It’s unjust, inappropriate and unethical. The prime minister clearly promised there wouldn’t be any freezes, official or unofficial, and I expect that he will stand by that commitment.”Earlier this week a group of right-wing MKs wrote a public letter to Netanyahu published in the Israeli press warning him against agreeing to a settlement freeze, stressing that they would not accept any framework agreement that would prevent Israelis from expanding the Jewish presence in the West Bank.

Amnesty accuses Israel of war crimes in new report

Rights group calls on US, EU and others to stop weapons sales to Jerusalem; IDF: Report disregards upsurge in Palestinian violence

February 27, 2014, 3:28 am 4-The times of Israel
Israel has killed dozens of Palestinian civilians in the West Bank over the past three years showing a “callous disregard for human life,” a report by Amnesty International said Thursday.Israel responded by saying the London-based rights group did not take into account the increasing number of attacks on its forces in the past year or seek comment until the eve of publication.The report entitled “Trigger-happy: Israel’s use of excessive force in the West Bank” documents the killing of 45 Palestinians and wounding of thousands “who did not appear to be posing a direct and immediate threat to life.”It “shows a harrowing pattern of unlawful killings and unwarranted injuries of Palestinian civilians by Israeli forces in the West Bank.”The report accuses Israel of “war crimes and other serious violations of international law” against Palestinians.Since occupying the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza in 1967, “Israeli authorities have signally failed to carry out independent investigations that meet international standards into alleged crimes,” Amnesty claimed.
The group calls on Israel “to open independent, impartial, transparent and prompt investigations into all reports of Palestinian civilians killed or seriously injured by the actions of Israeli forces.”It also urges the United States, European Union and the rest of the international community to “suspend all transfers of munitions, weapons and other equipment to Israel” to pressure it to change.The Israeli military said Amnesty failed to take into account “the substantial increase in Palestinian violence initiated over the past year,” which “saw a sharp increase in rock hurling incidents, gravely jeopardising the lives of civilians and military personnel.”“During that year alone, 132 Israelis were injured, almost double the previous year,” it added. “Over 5,000 incidents of rock hurling took place.”“In 2013 there were 66 further terror attacks which included shootings, the planting of IEDs (improvised explosive devices)… and the abduction and murder of a soldier.”Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Amnesty authored its report “without even bothering to ask for response and comment,” until the eve of publication.“Their trick is to disable our capacity to respond,” he said in an email to AFP. “And that’s what this move is about: not to get responses, but to deprive Israel of its capacity to even take part in the conversation.”

Israeli missile-defense system for passenger planes passes live-fire test

Missiles successfully deflected by ‘Sky Shield’ in critical test for revolutionary laser-deflector system

February 26, 2014, 8:46 pm 26-The times of Israel
The Defense Ministry said it successfully completed final testing on a system that protects commercial planes from missile attacks.Eitan Eshel, head of research and development at the ministry, said Wednesday that testing of the “Sky Shield” system was “100 percent successful.”Wednesday’s tests involved firing live missiles, which were all successfully deflected.The system integrates laser technology with a thermal camera to protect aircraft against missiles fired from the ground. It deflects missiles fired at aircraft by changing their direction.Eshel did not say when the system, under development for about a decade, would become operational.Israel’s Channel 2 news said the threat to civilian airliners worldwide was on the rise, and reported that European authorities had thwarted eight efforts to launch shoulder-fired missiles at airplanes in the past year alone.Islamic terrorists fired two surface-to-air missiles at an Israeli charter plane shortly after takeoff in Mombasa, Kenya, in 2002. The missiles missed their target but spurred an Israeli effort to improve countermeasures.Reports of tests in the past two years have noted that the “Sky Shield” system proved capable of deflecting single and multiple missiles away from the target plane.The need for the system was deemed particularly acute because of ongoing tension between Israel and Iran, which funds and arms Islamists to Israel’s south in Gaza, and Hezbollah to the country’s north, in Lebanon.A Channel 2 TV report in 2012 said the defense systems cost $1 million per plane and would first be installed on airlines, including the national carrier El Al, flying what are defined as “sensitive routes.”

Knesset Temple Mount debate raises hackles in Arab world

PA calls for emergency meeting as Jordanian opposition demands a freeze to peace treaty with Israel; Egypt warns of ‘explosion’ in region

February 26, 2014, 9:34 am 24-The times of Israel
A Knesset debate Tuesday on Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount set off intense criticism in the Arab world, including in countries with which Israel has signed peace treaties.Egypt’s foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, warned Tuesday in a statement that an Israeli declaration of sovereignty over the contested site could lead to an “explosion’” in the region.The PA asked the Arab League Tuesday to hold an emergency session on Wednesday to discuss Israeli policy toward the Temple Mount, Ma’an news agency reported. “If Israel continues this policy,” said PA ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra, “it proves that it does not want peace but continues to violate international laws and resolutions.”In Jordan, 47 out of 150 members of the country’s lower house signed a motion late Tuesday that the treaty be annulled, the government-owned al-Rai newspaper reported.“The motion came in response to Israel’s actions in Jerusalem and to the Knesset debate of a law that seeks to impose Israel’s sovereignty over Al-Aqsa,” Al-Rai quoted MPs as saying in the motion.“Israel’s actions clearly violate the peace treaty… it is aggression against Jordanian custodianship,” the motion said.Al-Rai said the lower house will discuss “the repercussions of the debate later Wednesday”.
Most of the signatories came from Jordan’s Islamic Action Front, a Muslim Brotherhood faction that serves as the kingdom’s main opposition party. “We ask the government to accede to the demands of those who have called repeatedly for freezing, and eventually cancelling, the peace treaty,” the group said on its website.
Tuesday’s debate was the first to examine the right of non-Muslims to enter and pray at the holy compound in Jerusalem, with over 30 MKs from both right-wing and left-wing parties seeking to voice their opinion on the divisive topic.The discussion ended late Tuesday with no vote being taken.Almost all of the parliament’s Arab members chose not to attend the session in protest over the decision to hold it.

The debate, headlined “the loss of Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount” and rescheduled from last week, was initiated by right-wing lawmaker MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud), whose visits to the Temple Mount have drawn media and police attention. Feiglin was arrested for praying there in October 2012 and January 2013, before he became an MK, and visited the Mount earlier this week ahead of the debate.“The Israeli leadership is shirking its duty,” Feiglin said at the opening of the session, during which he called for Jewish freedom of worship at the site where the first and second Jewish temples once stood. “Without the Mount, we have no home in Tel Aviv, or Haifa or anywhere else.”Police restrictions bar Jews from praying or engaging in other religious activities while on visits to the Mount for fear that they will provoke a violent reaction from Muslims, a policy Feiglin said was absurd.“Behind the back of our people we gave up on any vestige of Israeli sovereignty at the Mount. Every terrorist organization can wave their flag there, but the flag of Israel? It must not be mentioned. Reciting a psalm is grounds for arrest. Even wearing a skullcap [at the site] is inadvisable by police standards,” he said.The Temple Mount is jointly administered by the Jordanian government and the Jerusalem-based Islamic Waqf, an arrangement that has been in place since Israel captured the Old City and East Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed them. Regarded as a holy site by both Judaism and Islam, proposed changes to the status quo at the Mount are often a source of unrest.Meretz head Zahava Gal-On slammed the discussion as an attempt to damage peace talks and hurt ties between Israel and the Muslim world.Before the debate Tuesday, Israeli police clashed with rioters on the mount, who pelted them with stones and firecrackers.Azzam Khatib, director general of the Waqf, Jordan’s Islamic authority that currently manages religious affairs at site, said the clash followed rumors that Jewish extremists were planning on entering the compound and raising the Israeli flag. He said the entire compound was Muslim and they would not allow anyone to change that situation.“I hope they have some rational people in the government to stop them from provoking us,” he said.Palestinian diplomat Abdelhady-Nasser accused Feiglin of “reckless actions” and called on the United Nations Security Council to give urgent attention to the “Israeli acts of incitement, provocation and aggression (which) are intended to deliberately provoke Palestinian, Arab and Muslim sensitivities and could have extremely dangerous and widespread consequences.” She sent similar letters to the General Assembly and to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.Last week, the planned session drew condemnation from Jordan’s parliament, whose Palestine Committee said a move to expand Israeli control over the sensitive site would be a violation of “Jordanian national sovereignty and is tantamount to a breach of the peace treaty signed between Jordan and Israel.”
Hamas and Palestinian Authority officials, together with leaders of the Islamic Movement in the Galilee, have long accused Israel of planning to take control of the Muslim sites on the Mount.Adiv Sterman, Gavriel Fiske, The Associated Press and AFP contributed to this report.

Several MKs sent a letter to US Ambassador Dan Shapiro on Wednesday denouncing attempts by the “political margins” to damage Israel’s relationship with the United States, a reference to a testy meeting between the American envoy and the hawkish Land of Israel Caucus whose contents were leaked to the public.“We have no doubt that the alliance between the United States and Israel will endure despite attempts by the political margins in Israel to impugn it,” read the letter, sent at the initiative of Eitan Cabel (Labor) and also signed by MKs Zahava Gal-on (Meretz), Aryeh Deri (Shas), Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) and Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid).On Wednesday, Shapiro reportedly accepted an apology from Land of Israel Caucus members MKs Yariv Levin (Likud) and Orit Strock (Jewish Home), who in a statement said they had expressed “deep sorrow over the fact that, although the meeting was defined in advance as closed, someone in the room recorded it without their permission and leaked the recording to the press.”“I found it necessary to make a gesture first and foremost to [Ambassador Dan Shapiro], but also to express our appreciation to the United States for its stance over many years on the side of the State of Israel.” Cabel said. “The perception that a small group is trying to speak out against our friend the United states is embarrassing.”The meeting between Shapiro and 16 members of the Land of Israel Caucus, which comprises 40 MKs who either openly oppose or are deeply skeptical about land concessions in the framework of Israeli-Palestinian talks, took place on Tuesday.While a source told The Times of Israel there was “an atmosphere of respect and listening” at the meeting, the leaked recording revealed a substantial amount of criticism leveled at American policy, particularly regarding the ongoing peace talks with the Palestinian Authority and the prospect of a final agreement.Shapiro insisted during the meeting that a final peace treaty resulting from the talks would “protect Israel’s security and would be good for Israel,” according to sources familiar with the conversation.But MKs were skeptical.“How can we trust you?” demanded MK David Rotem, of Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party. “When have you stood by us in the past?” he asked.Similar complaints were heard from MK Reuven Rivlin (Likud) and Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), who said the MKs with whom the American administration disagreed were nevertheless elected by the Israeli public, and that imposing American views on them undermined Israeli democracy.Haviv Retig Gur contributed to this report.
