    Tzipi Livni, never missing an opportunity to make the wrong decision  

    She was the woman of principle who implored Labor and Yesh Atid to join her in blocking Netanyahu. Now she’s traded her integrity for two ministries and a meaningless promise to head peace talks

    By RAPHAEL AHREN, TOI

    Tzipi Livni’s decision to join Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is the first bombshell of the post-election, coalition-building season: In a reversal of her pre-Election Day stance, the woman who went on TV to implore the heads of the two leading center-left parties to join her and build an alliance to thwart the unsuitable Netanyahu’s return to the prime ministership is now the first to join the coalition, all but ensuring that Netanyahu will retain the post.

    Christianity and the Holocaust  

    This site is very impressive.  Each one of the links takes you to a world in itself.  I refer you to Historical killings for Christianity.  Ted Belman

     

    By Mark Humphries

    The Holocaust did not come out of nowhere. It was not a random choice that the Jews were selected as the targets. The Holocaust was the climax of a thousand years of killing and persecution by the Christians.

    Israeli invention can detect lung cancer from breath  

    Israeli professor’s revolutionary disease-detection device is on the road to changing how early, and how easily, lung cancer is diagnosed.

    Israel 21C

    An Israeli invention that can detect lung cancer from exhaled breath will be commercialized in a joint venture between the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Alpha Szenszor, a Boston-based manufacturer of carbon nanotube sensing equipment.

    As ISRAEL21c reported in 2011, Technion Prof. Hossam Haick has been working on what he calls “Na-Nose” (the “na” is for “nanotechnology”) since 2007, and the device has been proven in numerous international clinical trials to differentiate between different types and classifications of cancer with up to 95 percent accuracy.

    Futile Israeli Efforts to Win Ankara Back  

    by Daniel Pipes

    The Government of Israel, we learned yesterday from a Turkish source, has delivered Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) equipment by ELTA, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries. that gives military aircraft protection from electronic attacks. Not only will the AWACS planes, in the wording of the Today’s Zaman article, “greatly increase [the Turkish air force's] dominance over Turkey’s own airspace” but they will also be useful to it in the Syrian civil war and vis-à-vis “tensions with Israel and Greek Cyprus over the issue of gas drilling.”
    What a Turkish air force AWACS looks like.

    On Sunday, Jews across the world celebrate the festival of Purim, which features arguably the most momentous reversal of fortune in the history of the Jewish people since the Exodus.  In the last two decades we have also been witnessing the most miraculous period of change in fortune of the Jewish State since Biblical times.  Here are just some of the head-spinning events of the past few weeks.

    Getting down to the crunch in negotiations  

    Through the back door
    Op-ed: With only six Knesset seats, Livni had no choice but to join Netanyahu-led coalition

    By Nahum Barnes, YNET

    Netanyahu is letting people board his bus first through the back door: Tzipi Livni is the first one to board. The second will be Shaul Mofaz. Then the front door will open and Shas and United Torah Judaism will be invited in. Netanyahu hopes that by then Labor will be convinced to board as well. If it continues to refuse, he will have to invite Bennett and/or Lapid inside. Without one of these three lists he has no coalition.

    As is customary in the business world, the person who is the first to purchase a certain item is offered a discount. After a week of tense negotiations, which included two difficult meetings at the Prime Minister’s Residence, Livni was able to get a relatively convenient agreement from Netanyahu. As justice minister and head of the Ministerial Committee for Legislation she will be able to thwart anti-democratic legislation and restrain the Right’s control over the Judicial Appointments Committee.

    Address by PM Netanyahu to the Jewish Agency Board of Governors  

    18/02/2013

    Thank you, Natan. Natan is the tallest chairman of the Jewish Agency. The second tallest. No, the tallest, the tallest, because he’s a giant, he’s a giant of the Jewish people, and he’s a battle-scarred veteran of the campaign to secure the Jewish future. We are of the same age, and when my generation earned its scars on the battlefields of Israel, we lost loved ones and some of us didn’t live to see the day, you earned your scars in a Soviet dungeon, totally fearless, absolutely courageous, totally dedicated to the Jewish state and the Jewish people, and I think that this quality first helped you obviously survive the Soviet jail, but it also prepared you for Israeli politics, and there the two of us have weathered the sweet slings of the genteel world of Israeli politics (nobody’s laughing).

    Syria: Sunni Arabs and Kurds Temporarily Align Against the Regime  

    Stratfor

    Summary

    Syrian rebels with the Kurdish flag (R) and the pre-Baath Syrian flag
    Another alliance is forming against the Alawite troops still loyal to Syrian President Bashar al Assad. After several weeks of clashes, the Democratic Union Party, the dominant Kurdish faction in Syria, commonly referred to as the PYD, and the Syrian Sunni Arab rebels that lead the Free Syrian Army signed the agreement Feb. 19. Although numerous parties, including the Turkish government, Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani, the Free Syrian Army and various Syrian Kurdish factions, have an interest in seeing the Democratic Union Party cooperate with the Free Syrian Army, the alliance will likely end up being a temporary alliance of convenience.

    Likud members: Livni will block rightist legislation  

    THIS IS INFURIATING. BIBI IS GIVING AWAY THE FRUITS OF VICTORY TO THE LEFT. LIVNI CAMPAIGNED ON A PEACE DEAL WITH PALESTINIANS AND GOT ONLY 6 MANDATES. BIBI HAS NO RIGHT TO THWART THE WILL OF THE ELECTORATE AND HIS OWN PARTY.

    I DO NOT ACCEPT THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR A BROAD COALITION.

    BIBI IS TURNING HIS BACK ON BENNETT AND LAPID AND FORMING A GOVERNMENT WITH THE OTHER PARTIES. hE IS FORMING A LEFT WING GOVERNMENT AND PUSHING THE PEACE PROCESS.

    Ruling party officials slam Netanyahu, say coalition agreement gives Hatnua leader too much power. Habayit Hayehudi: Putting negotiations in hands of woman who was responsible for Gaza disengagement plan make it hard for us to join coalition

    Moran Azulay, Attila Somfalvi, YNET

    The first coalition deal, which granted Hatnua Chairwoman the justice portfolio and put her in charge of the peace negotiations with the Palestinians, has irked many Likud members, who claim she was given excessive powers in exchange for her willingness to join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ‘s new government.

    Knesset members from the ruling party said that should Hatnua also head the Ministerial Committee for Legislation, the centrist party would thwart all ‘rightist’ initiatives.
