Last Monday night after dinner, after the dishes were cleared, I sat in my dining room with Mark Rosenblum and asked him the question I’d long been meaning to ask: Why don’t you just give up?
The United States raised concerns with Israel over its approval of 147 new West Bank settler homes and its decision to advance plans for 949 other units.
Israel plans to declare legal four unauthorized West Bank settler outposts, a court document showed on Thursday, days before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry returns to the region to try to restart peace talks.
Israel's Defense Ministry approved the construction of 90 housing units in the West Bank settlement of Beit El.
Two new settler outposts have been erected in the West Bank, with the approval of municipal authorities, Peace Now says.
The evacuation of all 50 Jewish families in Israel’s Migron outpost was completed on Sunday evening without major incident. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the successful and peaceful evacuation—but vowed that his government would continue to strengthen Jewish communities in the West Bank.
The home of Peace Now Settlement Watch director Hagit Ofran was vandalized with threatening graffiti.
The fence outside the Jerusalem offices of Peace Now was spray-painted with threatening graffiti.
Jerusalem police arrested a suspect in the vandalism and bomb threat at the city's offices of Peace Now.

Israel plans to build more than 2,600 housing units in a new urban settlement in East Jerusalem, an anti-settlement group said on Friday, angering Palestinians who want a halt to all such projects before they return to peace talks.

A colloquial Hebrew expression says, “not every day is Purim.” It can loosely be translated as “you can’t fool all the people all the time.” But when it comes to Israel, there are those in our US Jewish community who not only choose to live in a delusional virtual reality, but insist on dragging others into their la-la land. It is bad for Israel and bad for America. Take the case of Rep. Anthony Weiner, the Democrat from New York, who in a televised debate recently insisted that there was no Israeli occupation in the West Bank and no Israeli military presence there. This was not a satirical show or a Purim spiel. The man was serious.
Ben Gurion International Airport's wireless service reportedly is blocking travelers from selected left- and right-wing political websites. Websites blocked at the Israeli airport include Breaking the Silence, Peace Now and the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel, Haaretz reported Thursday.
I've never met a right-wing Jew who doesn't want peace. The divisive question is always: How do we get there? By being forceful and hard-nosed, or flexible and understanding?
