Laura: Argentinian Foreign Minister Hector Timmerman is protecting those responsible for the mass murder of fellow Jews in his own country. Timmerman also attacked Israel for having the audacity to demand these Iranian jihadists be brought to justice. Timmerman defines kapo. There are certain pathetic, cowardly “Jews” who viciously turn against their own people in the hope that antisemites won’t target themselves. The Argentinian leadership joins the long list of morally repugnant governments throwing Jews under the bus to placate jihadist savages.
Candidly Speaking: Argentina’s pact with the devil

That Argentinian leaders could be a part of a cynical whitewashing of the murder of their own citizens should lead to severe condemnation.
Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner has jettisoned whatever was left of her country’s moral standing by consummating a devil’s pact with Iran, whose leaders were responsible for having inflicted the worst-ever act of terrorism on her own citizens.
In March 1992, the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires suffered a terrorist bombing which killed 29 and wounded 242 people. Two years later, in July 1994, a second bombing targeted the Jewish community center (AMIA) killing 85 and injuring hundreds.

President Barak Obama is expected to visit Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Jordan in March. While Washington announced that he would not bring a peace plan to the area, the timing and the itinerary suggest that peace negotiations with the Palestinians will be high on the president’s agenda, in addition to other pressing issues like Iran and Syria.
Obama’s move is reminiscent of the beginning of his first term, when the newly elected president chose Mahmoud Abbas as the first world leader to telephone and declared the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian problem to be at the top of his foreign policy agenda. Asian powers like Japan and South Korea, who anticipated that this time around America would shift its priorities to the Far East, may be in for a disappointment.
It bothers me that Bennett was forced to apologize as a condition of being in the government. While Bibi has every right to consult his wife. it another matter when he empowers her to enter the fray on his behalf. Bennett has every right to be pissed off with her meddling. But is it right that Bibi should make a Bennett apology as a precondition to entering the coalition. Ted Belman

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will hold a long-awaited meeting with Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett on Monday in Tel Aviv, after Bennett took to the airwaves to apologize to Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, for saying that he had endured “a course on terror” with her.
The prime minister has met with the leaders of all of the Knesset’s 12 parties since the January 22 election, except Bayit Yehudi. Even though the Likud had announced Thursday evening that Netanyahu would meet with Bennett at the beginning of this week, Netanyahu’s office did not even call Bennett’s associates to organize the meeting until Bennett apologized.
Alon Pinkas, former Consul General in New York,weighs in on the peace process and Obama’s visit:
Obama is not really naïve, nor is he surrounded by dreamers. American policy may lack sophistication or creativity at times, but the president is under no illusions when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. He is well aware of the difficulties involved in implementing the “two-state” model at this stage and understands that the gap between Israel and the Palestinians is too wide at this point.
