1. There will be Internationalization
Zechariah   (01.01.14)
The Jordan Valley will be defacto Internationalized with X Jewish and Jordanian Verification and the Agreement will only work if there is Truce. Islamic Jihadi and Fatah Baath will be neutralised by Peaceful Means Incaceration or Other Covert Means.The Left supported the Sinai Deal with Eygpt and Shamir exLechi Abstained.
2. Sheer nonsense!
Grow up.   (01.01.14)
Lest, right are just tugs. The so called left will support a peace agreement no matter who signs it. It is the solution that counts not the silly tugs.
3. Dear Tamar,
Jules   (01.01.14)
with whom EXACTLY are you going to sign an agreement ? Abbas has been illegitimate for four (!) years. He represents nobody but himself. The next leader might easily say: "I did not sign any agreement; the only document which is my guidance is the PLO Charter". The latter document has always been an open declaration of war against Israel.
4. Important article!
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (01.01.14)
Prof. Hermann has written a very revealing article! She explained me and many other people why the left is losing it's positions election after election! She worries about the left political future, she worries about what that bad man Bibi may do, but.... she doesn't say a word about what's good for israel! Just the old cliche saying that peace, no matter how, is the best. Just like in Oslo accords!
5. I don't expect any deal to be signed ....
Michael Redbourn ,   Lisbon Portugal   (01.01.14)
At least three of the demands Abbas is making cannot be met by Israel and Abbas can't back away from them. And the US can't force a deal, much as Obama might want to, because there is still a Congress and Senate even though Obama wishes there were't.
6. As much chnce as the "Peace Process" itself
Gideon Reader   (01.01.14)
The left loves the left more than it loves "peace" or anything else. The left exists for it's own sake and the benefit; the positive results of any political activity it may be associated with is far down the list of desired resulkts. Being to the left and the creation of a dictorial state is the single goal and sufficient target. The left will never sacrifice it's political goals for the good of joining the national camp. They are after ll,,,the left with a recountable transnational and long historical track record. A political "Rap Sheet".
7. Peace? Building in settlements? Price Tag? Torched mosques?
miki ,   tampa   (01.01.14)
Bibi has done absolutely nothing to prevent the powers of darkness from spreading terror on the West Bank while continuinmg to build on stolen lands. This is support of a peace process?
8. Political idiocy must end
Dan   (01.01.14)
Meretz refuses to censure the Jordan Valley annexation because it saves Likud from themselves, despite the fact that annexation is bad for Israel. Labor might not support a viable peace plan because it might help Netanyahu, despite the fact that peace is good for Israel. Shortsighted political point-scoring wins over the long-term national interest in each case. No wonder my country is in the process of dying - thanks to its idiotic politicians.
9. Sleep with who under what conditions?
michael Pielet ,   israel   (01.01.14)
Sleep with the enemy definitely no. What does Tamar look like?
10. A completely inexcusable act
mira ,   nyc   (01.01.14)
If Labor refused to support a peace deal just because they were not the party responsible for it, I don't think their public image would ever recover. It would be a completely inexcusable act. How could they ever again present themselves as the pro-peace party?
11. tamar is watching too much
charles   (01.01.14)
reality tv. please! this is real life, not fantacy. who here wants peace? everybody except kerry himself. is he smarter than clinton? i'm suprised at an academic having such a narrow-minded view.
12. Israelis too smart to support infallibly wrong left.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.01.14)
The bottom line is that leftists have never been correct on a major issue. From Oslo to Disengagement to...everything. Less than a year ago, leftist morons advocated ceding Golan. Israelis are too smart to support the infallibly wrong left.
13. #7, you missed including slit-throat Jewish babies
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
14. This is a good one Tamar. It is a too transparent Left ploy.
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
She argues that for the Right to remain in power it must adopt Leftist suicidal policies.
15. Peace negations
Joe Mevorah ,   Lincoln, USA   (01.01.14)
The" meticulous" suggestions that Kerry will be bringing are demands that both sides will swallow. What ever happened to what's best for the people of Israel and the Palestinians? Politicians on both sides of the political divide will adjust. After all they are politicians, and they all lie and survive.
16. Tamar, if Right does that then how does it differ from Left?
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
17. Sharon did exactly that in Gaza and the result is abysmal
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
18. Left must capture Right with better way forward, legitimacy
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
19. #18, not mine. Posted by an Obamacare deranged Muslim fan.
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.01.14)
20. no. 18. In other words Israel should commit suicide.
21. There is no greater victory than
Shachar ,   Eilat   (01.02.14)
the right carrying out left-wing policy! If only that was our problem!! Sadly it's not about to happen.
22. To #8
Joe Mevorah ,   Lincoln,USA   (01.02.14)
You are correct. Israel is much like the U.S. where Democrats lash out at Republicans, as a result nothing gets done to serve the country. Congratulations, it only confirms my theory that Israelis are transplanted Americans.
23. #22. No need to be insulting
Dan   (01.09.14)
The quiet secret here is that Israelis hold Americans, including Jewish ones, in contempt: spoiled, fat, ignorant, stupid and yet condescending, with no experience of having to fight to survive and no understanding of the kind of decisions we have had to confront all our lives. Heaven spare us from ever resembling Americans.
