British, French FMs preparing plan to restart talks between Israel, Palestinians to be presented in March. ‘It will drive us into a corner,’ say Israeli officials
THIS PLAN IS AN AMALGAM OF PA DEMANDS AND OBAMA’S FRAMEWORK. NO CONCESSION HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ISRAEL.

The European Union is working on a detailed plan meant to restart Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and establish an independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital, Yedioth Ahronoth quoted Israeli diplomatic sources as saying.
The plan will set a clear timetable for a discussion on all core issues over the course of 2013. It will likely be presented in March after a new Israeli government is formed.
According to the plan, Israel and the Palestinians will enter peace negotiations after a brief interval. The plan will likely also include a demand to freeze settlement construction.

Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that President Barack Obama could use executive action and bypass Congress to further restrict gun ownership by private citizens. …
“I want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion (that) unless we can do everything we’re going to do nothing,” Biden said. “It’s critically important (that) we act.”

“Unless we can do everything?” What does this man mean? “Do everything” means an unlimited set of options. Even precluding “everything” still leaves the door open to too many possibilities. “It’s critically important (that) we act” sounds definitive, even desperate, but is in reality taking advantage of two gun-related massacres to scare Americans into giving up freedoms. Does Biden mean that he and President Obama will ignore the U.S. Constitution, ignore legal precedents, and even call out the Armed Forces to take away the gun rights of all Americans? This sounds like a power-grab — and a fear of empowered citizens — given the fact that gun control has no effect on reducing crime. For example, “the homicide rate in England and Wales has averaged 52% higher since the outset of the 1968 gun control law and 15% higher since the outset of the 1997 handgun ban.” The ominous possibility that “President Barack Obama could use executive action and bypass Congress to further restrict gun ownership by private citizens” is absolutely frightening.
